Winterbottom impressed with Circuit of the Americas
Ford Performance Racing's Mark Winterbottom says he is impressed with the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas following a promotional visit.
"The circuit's topography, including the dramatic changes in elevation, will make for some really fun racing and a great show for fans," Winterbottom said.
"While I didn't get to drive the full circuit, the sequence of turns I did sample were fantastic, and I can't wait to come back and take a lap around the finished racecourse. Circuit of The Americas will be a welcome addition to our future V8 Supercar line-up!"
The Circuit of the Americas will host V8 Supercars for the first time in 2013, with the event's format and date set to be announced by V8 Supercars.
"Austin has a really cool vibe," he said. "There's lots to see and do, and I think international visitors will find the city very sophisticated, yet laid back and welcoming.
"It's a great destination for motorsports enthusiasts and their families because there's something for everyone in terms of good food, great shopping, exceptional music and entertainment, loads of parks and recreational activities, and, of course, a purpose-built Grand Prix circuit that will host some of the best auto racing in the world!"
Winterbottom's next assignment in America is to continue his promotional work with Disney-PIXAR following his guest role in the 'Cars 2' movie, helping in the launch of the new "Cars Land" attraction opening at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California.
