  1. We are adding the May 13th Calabogie race to our schedule and have seats/stints available. Please contact Ken at ken@junctionautosport.com for details.
  2. FTD - fastest time of the day. I've heard stories about Nationals where some drivers bring two new sets of tires, one set for each day. I would imagine the serious guys are doing whatever it takes to win, so if that means many new tires ... I guess you could say the same about Chump.
  3. Thanks. I don't get the emails for whatever reason so I'm out of the loop.
  4. What's the proposed format for this first Calabogie race because the website indicates just "May 13th"?
  5. Chances are "not likely" since the R-S3 was discontinued last year. Better off getting the R-S4 - I know he has stock.
  6. Misha won PC last year, and I liked his Mosport "looking for a drive" post from last year, where he ended it with "and a little bit of a driving resume" lol. We are certainly not the first/only team as there are handfuls of "pros" that do this - Randy Pobst certainly comes to mind, and TWOth had Johan Schwartz at Sebring. I think it's great for the series that the pros are wiling to come out and race with us, where we can learn so many things about set up and our own driving.
  7. We are ecstatic to see Daniel and Jesse win GTD today. Daniel drove two killer stints to keep the team in contention, and it was left to Michael Christensen to drive to the win. It was a nerve wracking yet exciting final hour. We hope that their schedules line up later in the year and they're able to drive with us again - once a Junction driver, always a Junction driver. Thanks Shane. Will we see you at Watkins? carfixer24 - you're more than welcome to help out and get a feel for Chump Car. It's a fun paddock.
  8. Thanks! Both cars got pretty beat up by the end of the season, the #18 more so, haha. That car has been through hell and back yet ran so strong last season with only a few minor mechanical issues. At the moment, no, but that could change as the season progresses.
  9. Junction Autosport has planned its schedule for the 2017 ChumpCar season. This year will include plans to take on some of the iconic tracks in the United States. We are seeking drivers for our program as we plan to bring both our cars, Honda Civic hatches, which are both currently EC but we're aiming to get one in A or B. We are a laid back team that focuses on having fun while continuously improving to be an overall contending team. Last season we finished 1st in EC twice with a 4th and 5th overall at the Mosport 11hr and 16hr Chumpionship, respectively. Interested drivers please send an email to ken@junctionautosport.com for more information. www.junctionautosport.com Instagram - www.instagram.com/junctionautosport Twitter - www.twitter.com/Junction_Auto Some older feedback -

  11. I'm just "the messenger" here, but I went to pick up WeatherTech mats today from Sal, and I had the chance to talk to Wendy, too. They confirmed that both the Mosport (July 1st-2nd) and Calabogie (end of September, per Carl's post above) dates ARE on the schedule for next year. They are also waiting for a "special venue" confirmation, hinted to be Tremblant. This just speaks for Ontario and Quebec as I forgot to ask about the west and east coast (sorry, I remembered on my way home) and I would assume that those venues are still in the mix. Again, this is what they said in a more-or-less official confirmation for at least the Mosport and Calabogie dates. *ducks for cover*
  12. I didn't drive this weekend as I acted as crew for our two cars and I had an absolute blast watching the racing. Such a great weekend, and as a team, we learned a lot about preparedness as we had several issues to deal with on both cars, including needing to adjust the splitter. I'm also certain that the timing tower is glad that the race is over so they don't have to see our guys up there every third minute. Thanks to all - the organizers, sponsors, teams and drivers for making this series so damn fun and amazing. Can't wait for next year. Although I can't speak for this race in particular, I can't think of any incident in my previous races where I thought your car/drivers were a problem. Other cars for sure. But from what I've seen you've kept your car out of the way and never interfered with what's going on. I wouldn't take this prize any other way than getting some coaching with a great group of people. I've taken that school 4 times and I've learned so much every time that I'm planning to do the school next year. Trust me, you will enjoy every moment and you will learn a lot of good stuff.

  14. Hey Mat: If you register after the deadline (60 days before the race) there's a late fee that you have to pay. Best to reach out to Wendy to confirm your registration. The sup regs and schedule are usually emailed the week of the event, so be patient and it will show up. Great to see you guys with a car - see you there.
