  1. Got to give a shout out to: - TRC for the anti fog "solution" lol - TWOth for getting us a rad for the problematic 81 - KJU for helping changing tires - Chump Monkey for the last second fire bottle attendant To me this is what makes Chump a great group of people. Thanks again, guys. Good and not so good weekend for the team but I think we're improving in some areas. Just need to work on some other things to get us better prepared.
  2. The format is basically on track for ~30mins at the top of every hour (or bottom depending on your group), with a debriefing after every session which includes what was good or bad in that session. The expectation is also explained for the next session, so you know what will happen and what you can/can't do. You also have time to debrief individually with your coach as well, after the main debrief. Each session develops to the next, so it's a steady progression of learning throughout the weekend, from simple follow-the-leader to many open passing zones. The key thing is it's not a race, and the expectation is to develop everyone on track to understand the concepts of racing (flags, passing, awareness) and how everyone has to work together (again, passing and awareness). I personally think this was one of the best group of drivers that I worked with in all my times of taking this school.
  3. Great weekend - awesome to see and meet other Chumps. I learned a completely new line (the Bourbonnais line) and it changed how I knew the track. I hope that I can apply that this coming weekend. Thanks to Carl, Vince, and the AISA staff for another great weekend. I can't stress enough how well this school is run and how you can learn so much. This should be a prerequisite for any Chump team that wants to get their season off to a good start.
  4. See you there, team Wheelhouse. I'm looking forward to this as I've identified a lot of problems per say since the last time I took this school. The goal is to make sure I'm no longer the anchor of my team.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Thanks. I don't get the emails for whatever reason so I'm out of the loop.
  8. What's the proposed format for this first Calabogie race because the website indicates just "May 13th"?
  9. Chances are "not likely" since the R-S3 was discontinued last year. Better off getting the R-S4 - I know he has stock.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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 -
