DriveOPTIMA at Circuit of the Americas Album Two
Even though the venue has only been open since 2012 and hosting Formula One races since that time, it's safe to say it is an icon, bucket-list track that any enthusiast would love to add to their list of "been there, done that." That was clearly evidenced by OPTIMA's 2016 event, which was opened to an unprecedented 125-car field and still sold out almost immediately. Danny Popp laid down the fastest lap of the weekend in his 2003 Corvette, posting a best lap time of 2:22.045 (you can take a lap around the track with Danny here). Class winners included:
- GTV- Mike Maier, 1966 Ford Mustang
- GTS- Curt Trawick, 2016 Porsche GT3 RS
- GTL- Danny Popp, 2003 Chevrolet Corvette
- GT- Aaron Sockwell, 2015 Ford Mustang
