Brumos ends Circuit of the Americas debut with podium celebration
For Brumos Racing, a trip to Austin’s new Circuit of the Americas presented both opportunities and challenges. The second round of 2013 Rolex Series competition marked their Austin debut and was one of the most highly anticipated races of the season. The new facility did not disappoint, drawing high marks from crew and drivers. While many of their competitors had tested at the facility previously, the track was new to Brumos, so the team focused on preparation in the weeks before the race. Their research and hard work paid off, as the car proved to be strong right off the truck. Andrew Davis showcased the Brumos Porsche 911 GT3 for the large crowd of Texas fans, putting the #59 in 3rd place for the start of the race in a strong qualifying performance.
