Leave a comment

We’ve mentioned the fan events in the run up to next week’s United States Grand Prix in Austin, and we have driver confirmations now for Oliver Weingarten’s COTA fan forum, too.

Williams’ Felipe Massa, Force India’s Sergio Perez and Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez. Perez and Gutierrez were in attendance at the former FOTA fan forum at the same event in Austin last season; the U.S. race, for 2014 anyway, serves as the closest Grand Prix to a home event for the pair of Mexican drivers.

More information and a chance to register for the event is linked here.
