Instructed by Tilke GmbH, SupErb Construction has worked countless hours for the last 10 months straight to build the six-pack tire barriers surrounding the road course. While we hope no one will be able to test out the tire barriers, rest assured that in the event they do, they will be happy we decided to build the Circuit to the highest standards and under the guidance of the best in the industry. Thank you to Jesse Coulter and Keith Price for all of your hard work and dedication in completing these.

Anyone who may have driven by the facility this past week would have seen our new building signs from the highway. Thank you to the team at Houston Signs for all your efforts in helping us achieve this timeline. We look forward to your installation of the start-finish overhead bridge this week.
As we approach the final weeks of construction, we would like to take this time to once again thank the many highly skilled individuals and the many companies who have spend the last several months, weeks and days on this project.
It is time to start the engines for your well-deserved first drive.
