  2. Official Sebring Fall 2017

    Track will open at noon friday
  3. Official Sebring Fall 2017

    Some of you are still cleaning up while you prep your car. The good news is you get to take a break and race at Sebring in a few days! The roads are getting cleared, the power is being restored and fuel trucks are refilling supplies. Life after a hurricane is a lot of work, but at least you have a weekend of racing to look forward to. We are down a few entries this year due to the storm, but we still have a large field that will make for a great race. Read on to get important event info. Gates - It's unclear if any other clubs have canceled their events this week. Our contract has us entering the track at 5pm on Friday. If this is the case, we'll tech & register outside. If no other group shows up on Friday, then the gates will open at noon. Why don't I know for sure yet? SIR phones are still not working. Paddock - The paddock is first come first served. There are very few spots with power and water and we do not reserve those for anyone. The good thing though is that there is plenty of room for everyone. Tech - If you have not had your annual tech for 2017, bring your car through the tech line along with all your paperwork filled out. Make sure you have read the rules. Swap cars with no paperwork will likely be put in EC unless tech is in a good mood. Registration - If you are already tech'd, bring your yellow logbook directly to registration. Before you arrive, log in and check your driver roster for accuracy. Make any corrections ahead of time. If you are paid with the correct drivers, check-in is a 3-minute process. If you are not coming (work issue, car issue, etc), email me to let me know you will not be there. Novice School - 6pm upstairs in scoring tower. Exit Time - The track is rented on Sunday to another group. All ChumpCar teams must be out of the main paddock by 6am Sunday morning. You can drop your trailers outside of the main paddock after the race and pick them up when you leave on Sunday. Pit/Garage Assignments - Here are your pit and garage assignments. http://files.constantcontact.com/00477aab001/3ffe6e49-0a4a-46be-9762-96a3cea8ea58.pdf Finally - The Sebring area is still recovering from hurricane Irma. It is advised for teams to bring as much fuel as you can as well as food and drinks so as not to tax the local supplies. A reminder: read through and print out the Supplemental Rules for this event here. https://www.chumpcar.com/register/supplementalrules/321.pdf If you have any questions about registration, please contact Andrea Chisek here. andrea.chisek@chumpcar.com Any other questions you can contact me here. michael.chisek@chumpcar.com We're looking forward to seeing you all in FL!

    I prefer the older less of a country club track. 1/2 the battle is surviving what the track offers. Tracks like COTA are great, but they are numb.
  5. Road America fall race

    FYI - Drones are not allowed at ChumpCar events. some tracks will actually stop the race and/or kick us out.
  6. we are. working on fixing the link. look for it later today

    dog, I will have to look a bit later. You can log into the reg system and see the number. Andrew, You dropped out of our email system, so you did not get the email as by law we can't send it to you. If you want to be added, you have to email Mike with the request. You can also go and vote here - https://goo.gl/forms/9OWfYVivLjq9WYsw1
