From the Cockpit:

Christopher Bell: “COTA is an brilliant venue. Qualifying last yr was the only time we touched the monitor when it was dry and there were being high speed sections, small velocity sections a very little bit of all the things. I was fortuitous sufficient to test there in January previous yr in a Trans Am car and fell in love with the facility and racetrack. I imagine these Subsequent Gen cars are likely to do genuinely effectively on the road class. There are a good deal of high-speed straightaways into slow corners which is always a passing zone and a few rhythm sections. It is heading to be exciting because we never have any race working experience there in the dry but I consider you are heading to be in a position to pass if you are speedier than the car in front of you.”
