The Circuit of The Americas is undergoing resurfacing work after multiple complaints from Formula 1 and MotoGP about the bumps that have appeared on the track.

Bumps have been a big issue at COTA during the latest Formula 1 race, with multiple drivers and personalities of the sport complaining, with some even noting they could be a safety risk.

Now, the circuit management is addressing such concerns by resurfacing the track, an effort to try and remove the bumps once and for all.

“COTA hired consultants to review asphalt designs and diagnose the parts of the track in need of resurfacing,” said a statement from the track.

“Ground penetration radar and laser mapping equipment and software were used to map the track and identify the different repairs needed.

“From there, COTA worked to repave Turns 12 through 16 and build a concrete pad to reinforce the areas at Turn 2 and 10.

“Additionally, COTA worked with contractors to ensure the new asphalt and concrete foundations were even and flush, creating an ideal track for upcoming races and events.”
