Cars & Coffee Austin Returns to Circuit of The Americas with a New Charity Partner
To support the Austin community, Cars & Coffee Austin proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Austin.
AUSTIN, TX – The car community’s favorite, Cars & Coffee Austin returns to Circuit of The Americas (COTA) on March 12 for an eight-event series—almost tripling last year’s events. For the first time in the event’s history, a portion of Cars & Coffee Austin proceeds will be given back to a local organization that supports youth wellbeing: The Boys & Girls Club of Austin.
“Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area is honored to partner with Circuit of The Americas in furthering our commitment to bridge the opportunity gap for Austin-area youth,” said BGCAA’s CEO Gordon Butler. “Through COTA’s dedicated support, we can continue our mission to provide accessible, high-quality programming and safe out-of-school care. We are grateful for COTA’s partnership as we empower all young people, especially those who need us most, on their path to great futures.”
Alongside the efforts to give back and the traditional show of classic, luxury, and creative vehicles, each Sunday event will have a unique element this year. The first event of the season—March 12—will also be the first-ever Cars & Coffee Austin in concert with a hot track at COTA. After grabbing a cup of joe, individuals who purchase a show car space can walk the cars before meandering over to the Main Grandstand to witness Super Lap Battle (SLB) in person with one (1) complimentary admission ticket. Super Lap Battle, a race against the clock for the best mass production road vehicles from each continent, is sure to excite any car or motorsport enthusiast. Cars & Coffee Austin Spectators must purchase an SLB ticket required to enjoy the racing.
Also arriving this year, shop for a new ride in the for-sale lot. Located behind COTA’s one-of-a-kind karting track, peruse and then cruise with this special ticketed offering. For the April-November events, drive-in for a Formula 1 Grand Prix watch party, some breakfast tacos, and a few surprises. Additional event details will be announced prior to each date.
