AUSTIN (KXAN) — It won’t be your normal food drive May 10 at Circuit of the Americas.
From 12-5 p.m., you can drive your car around the 3.4-mile track at COTA — the same track used for Formula 1 races — to raise money for the Central Texas Food Bank.
As of Saturday, COTA has already raised $100,000 to benefit the local food bank, according to a release.
But don’t think you’ll get to burn rubber on the track. The idea is to create a parade of “unity, hope and fun” down the iconic Turn 1 hill at around 20 mph, then through Turns 3 and 4 before heading down the back stretch.
Donating online is encouraged, but there will be a touchless donation drop-off at the track.
