ELROY, Texas -- The first race at the new Circuit of the Americas racetrack will take place this November, but there could be many more races scheduled after that.

According to the Austin Business Journal, the Formula One U.S. Grand Prix is scheduled for the weekend of Nov. 16-18, and could possibly take place there in 2013 as well.

For 2013, the COTA racetrack is also on provisional calendars for the World Endurance Championship racing series, preliminarily scheduled for Sept. 22; the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, preliminarily scheduled for March 2; and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. The American le Mans Series could take place next June.

A COTA spokesperson told The Austin Business Journal that circuit officials have been approached by many racing series, but they will not confirm yet whether the races will be held in Elroy until final agreements are in place.
