In honor of the brand new Circuit of the Americas F1 track’s opening last month, our very own Playmate Pilar Lastra headed down to Austin, Texas to check out the celebrations on the country’s newest and most elaborate custom race track. When she wasn’t burning rubber behind the wheel, Pilar got up close and personal with racing legend Mario Andretti, one of only two drivers to take down the F1, Indy, WSC and NASCAR as well as four IndyCar championship titles, and the only driver in history to win the Indy 500, F1 World Championship and Daytona 500.

Check out the video below, and make sure to check back soon for the next edition of Pilar Lastra’s Hot Laps.

A special thank you to Pirelli Tires and Performance Driving Network for their assistance.
