iTrader: (0)'s officially official! Circuit of the Americas is open for business!

The opening ceremony was this weekend...highlights included Mario Andretti taking the first lap in his 1978 Championship-winning Lotus F1 car and Belgian test driver Jerome D'Ambrosio taking a few laps in a modern Lotus F1 car. Several other racing cars were in attendance to represent the other events that are scheduled for next year.

Andretti's First Lap:

I think that old Lotus has seen better days! Or maybe Andretti needs to lay off the good 'ole Texas BBQ.

D'Ambrosio's Lap:

And a couple of shots from the event (credit to CoTA):

Wouldn't have minded taking that Enzo for a lap!

You can see the rest of the photos and description of the event at the Circuit of the Americas website.

Oh, and I'll just leave this here...
