NASCAR is as American as apple pie and V8 Supercar is as Australian as Vegemite. The love of V8 Supercar is no longer limited to the land down under as they have branched out globally to New Zealand, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. The search for a venue to host the first V8 Supercars race in the United States ranked high on the list of priorities for series CEO Tony Cochrane, and less than a month later they found a partner in the new Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
While some American fans are unfamiliar with the size and importance of Australian`s No. 1 racing series, it doesn`t take long to appreciate how deeply ingrained it has become in the culture. V8 Supercars is on par with what we have here with NASCAR (it is one of the country`s top three sports) in terms of the level of interest and support it receives from fans. NASCAR fans tend to be more loyal to the driver, but with the V8s it`s all about manufacturer loyalty. They have their driver favorites, but if you`re a Blue Oval fan, that never changes, and vice versa.
V8 isn`t just about the race; it`s just as much about the show. The V8 series have become event specialists - never is there a dull moment. Their thought is that if you`ve paid money to sit in the stands, you will be entertained every moment of the day. Who can argue with that philosophy? So when the Aussie`s head to Austin to bash a few fenders and make their USA introduction, why not join them and be part of this Inaugural event?
