Circuit of The Americas Finalizes Track Repaving Project
For the last few weeks, the track has undergone a large-scale resurfacing initiative. COTA hired consultants to review asphalt designs and diagnose the parts of the track in need of resurfacing. Ground penetration radar and laser mapping equipment & software was used to map the track and identify the different repairs needed. From there, COTA worked to repave Turns 12 through 16 and build a concrete pad to reinforce the areas at Turn 2 and 10. Additionally, COTA worked with contractors to ensure the new asphalt and concrete foundations were even and flush, creating an ideal track for upcoming races and events.
Listen to Leo Garcia, Vice President of Facilities, explain the track repairs in more details below.
