So...what are you all thinking about the 2018 schedule being released as track contracts are signed instead of waiting for the full schedule?

It's the way it should have always been done.

Yes, this is the way it should be done.   Give everyone as much notice as possible and allows for proper planning.

Im pretty certain Doc knew that this was the plan, and was actually looking to find out what we have on the docket already.  Lets go, cough it up Bill!

I also would like Indy but I think it is way to expensive, I hope I'm wrong.

Seriously, dont know their entry fees at Indy, but they are not outrageous at other tracks.

Might be fun to go back to an old chumpcar venue - Roebling Road Raceway.   Yes, it's a pain not having a crossover to the infield requiring  multiple race stops, but  maybe some creative format  thinking could work - perhaps using stage points ala NASCAR.  Lots of sprint races within a race.  Just something to mix it up a bit and  have teams focus on strategy a bit more.

I heard but not confirmed that the SCCA has Indy locked up for 2 years.  We would have to wait until after that.  Again, a rumor.  Dunno.

I like them being released as soon as the deals are inked.

I like that the firm dates are released as they are confirmed.  Allows us to better plan our seasons.

 

More Watkins Glen please!  I'd love to see more than one event there per year ... it's such a phenomenal venue!

Planning on running Daytona and NCM next year in lieu of Road Atlanta. Indy would be a great venue if it was later in the year... say about late August / early September...

I wanna see a wall race,  St Pete,  Long Beach,  Belle Isle, etc...

 

I can see the series possibly getting 4 hours of track time at a major event sight.   Crack of dawn start or last event of the day kind of thing.  

 

Would be great exposure for the series, for better or worse depending on the carnage or lack there of. 

 

We'd ( least I would ) be all over a St Pete race, probably would have to limit car counts too for those kind of races.

I sent a screen shot with "never say never" to my team. 

 

We'll be there, I'm determined to finish a race at CMS.  Glad I get another shot.  Also love that we have another SE spring race option other than VIR-S.  Good job CCWS!!

I like the idea. That said, I could see releasing them quarterly.  The important part is announcing them at least 6 months in advance.  

If I'm looking at a date on a competitors season say in November, but I'd rather run with Chump if they do that track in say February, but Chump doesn't publish their dates for the next year until after the early entry deadline for the other series, then I'm screwed.  Exactly what happened at Sonoma this season.  I would have gone to the Chump race there, but they didn't announce until after I'd already paid my deposit for Lemons.

We really appreciate it.

 

Please, publish as soon as possible so teams can plan way ahead, book rooms, plan driver lineups, etc.
