The second Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour event of 2023 takes place Feb. 11-12 in Austin, TX, at Circuit of the Americas (COTA). The only Hermann Tilke-designed track visited by the Hoosier Super Tour, COTA is a world-renowned venue that has hosted 10 Formula One contests, as well as NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series races.
The 3.41-mile, 20-turn circuit opens with an intimidating 133-foot climb to Turn 1, a spot that has produced many thrilling Hoosier Super Tour moments over the years. There’s plenty of excitement outside the track, too, as Austin is well known for its electrifying nightlife scene that includes great music and fantastic food.
