COTA JULY CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
July 11, 2012
The first layer of pavement has been laid around the majority of the track, from Turns 1-20 and part of the main straightway. Gantries and pedestrian bridges around the 3.4-mile course are up and guard rails have been installed from Turns 1-15 and from Turns 18-20. More than half of the working portion of the pit lane has been completed and most of the garages are nearly finished. Kitchens are being installed in the interior of the Pit Building and the Main Grandstand continues to move forward.
In coming weeks, the construction team will finalize work along the pit lane and interior of the Pit Building & Main Grandstand. FIA Fences will continue to be installed around the track at a fast pace in preparation for the 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX.
Stay tuned for more construction updates from the COTA team!
