GT1 Sports Club and Hypercar Invitational Announce Joint Endeavor

We are delighted to bring the excitement of GT1 Sports Club to America and are proud to partner with Hypercar Invitational,” said Ludovic Colman, General Manager of Curbstone Events. “The exceptional layout of the 5,513 km long track will be a great stage for the hyper and supercars of the GT1 Sports Club and Hypercar Invitational.

Over the course of an elite three-day affair, attendees of GT1 and HI will navigate one of the world’s foremost F1 tracks alongside GT racecars, engage with industry insiders, and witness unveilings featuring the latest hypercars. This opportunity invites owners of hypercars and super track cars to bring their best machines to the Circuit of the Americas for inclusion in the GT1 exhibition during the Fanatec GT World Challenge America Powered by AWS race weekend.

The inclusion of GT1 Sports Club and Hypercar Invitational in the Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS event at COTA will offer an unparalleled spectacle for enthusiasts in attendance,” expressed Robbie Montinola, Vice President of Marketing at SRO Motorsports America. “The sights and sounds of these superb hypercars will further enhance the overall experience and complement the diverse lineup of racecars that will be competing at our home circuit.”

Noteworthy highlights of event include:

  • A world premier announcement from renowned hypercar designer, Sasha Selipanov, and a private meet and greet.
  • A dedicated female track-driving program spearheaded by champion driver, Christina Nielsen.
  • Private gatherings featuring prominent industry figures.

Alessandro Borroni, founder of Hypercar Invitational, said, “We built the Hypercar Invitational model as a dynamic launch platform for the world’s most amazing machinery, offering a unique way for collectors and automotive founders, designers and engineers to break bread together.  However, the missing piece was the opportunity to include the automotive spectator in this automotive nirvana. With this new joint concept, attendees at COTA can now become part of the magic of HI events. This completes our original vision“.

Owners of hypercars and super track cars are encouraged to seize this rare chance to enjoy their extraordinary machines on the track. Sessions will alternate race cars and hypercars, captivating thousands of enthusiastic spectators and motorsport aficionados who share the same fervent passion for exceptional engineering and motorsports. Alongside showcasing their cars in the paddock, participants will also indulge in a VIP experience throughout the race weekend. This includes multiple driving sessions, allowing them to immerse themselves in the on-track excitement first-hand behind the wheel. Moreover, participants will also have the opportunity to enjoy their cars on the track during a private hypercar-only track day on the Monday following the event.  Individualized coaching will also be available upon request, under the tutelage of champion racing driver, Christina Nielsen and her team.
