  1. Send to all teams ITS ALMOST RACE TIME!! Greetings ChampCar Family, First and foremost, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your patience. We have been in the process of gathering/waiting for all important information that we needed to disburse to you in order for us to have a safe and fun race next weekend at Circuit of The Americas. PLEASE READ THROUGH EVERY PAGE OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL RULES CAREFULLY. SUPPLEMENTAL RULES found HERE There is extra information containing COVID-19 guidlines from COTA and ChampCar, along with the 3 WAIVERS you need in order to gain access onto COTA's property. Additional waivers for printing are HERE. Anyone who plans on bringing children please contact me HERE for an additional COTA minor waiver. PLEASE FILL OUT THE THREE REQUIRED WAIVER FORMS BEFORE ARRIVING AT THE GATE EVERY Driver/Crew/Volunteer is responsible for bringing the correct waivers to the gate at time of arrival to get a wristband for gate access. We kindly ask for teams/vehicles arriving to be prepared in order to avoid frustrations at the gate. (Remember, after this break, EVERYONE is very eager) PIT/GARAGE ASSIGNMENTS If you have not done so already, TEAM CAPTAINS ONLY, reach out to me HERE to reserve a garage, they are included with your racing fee. We have had some changes with garages from COTA which means you will not see them listed in this email. Im currently still working on them and will send out pit assignments/ final garages next week when everything is concrete. NEW DRIVERS MEETING PLATFORM Our awesome ChampCar Media man Paulie is helping me record a virtual drivers meeting to comply with COTA's gathering rule. We are planning on sending it out in advance through email and other platforms early next week. This will allow us plenty of time to answer any questions or concerns. The morning of the race it will be again replayed and I will answer some of the top questions I get with the first email send out. Keep in mind, if new questions arise, Bill has already put my phone number all over the internet and told all of you to text me, so I guess, I digress. In all seriousness, we want you to be safe and comfortable racing with us, my phone number is 812-431-7716 Feel free to call or text leading up to the race or you can email me HERE. Remember, during the race I will be stationed in the control room and I please ask for texts only unless it is an emergency. We want to make next weekend as headache free as possible for everyone and we are doing everything we can to get you back out there racing. Thank you for sticking with us, we look forward to seeing everyone soon! The ChampCar Staff
  2. No one is allowed in race control. If you have issues during the races, you will contact a pitlane marshall with your concerns. If they are busy, or not available, TEXT 812.431.7716Be certain to include your team name, car number, pit lane stall with your question. We will get back to you as soon as we can. Be aware that race control can be a very busy place at times.
  3. Have you ever been in black flag and argued your point as to why you shoved the guy off the track? and then the official said, oh... ok... on your way then! ?
  4. This sheet will be in your packet Download the PDF to tape to your dash cota-track-limits.pdf
  5. Safety will do hot pulls.But if your engine is blown, or your car needs to be towed on a flatbed the following will happen. Drivers of disabled cars will be transported via medical car, to comply with Covid-19 restrictions. This means that for disabled vehicles that the AMBULANCE will be dispatched. You will take a nice ride in the ambulance to the pit lane if there are no health issues. If you are injured, you will be taken to the medical center.Just be advised, that normally you would ride with the tow truck person, but under the tracks COVID-19 rules, you will have to ride in the medical vehicle. And be aware that the medical vehicle will be dispatched a lot more than regularly. So don't be alarmed.There will be no additional charges for that service.
  6. added to the webpage and 1st post here to clarify the temp membership fee. Weekend ChampCar Membership - For people in your crew that are not ChampCar Endurance Series members, we offer a temporary weekend membership for $20. Sign the waivers, hand them to security at the front gate. You will get a wristband that gets you through the gate. Your team captain will pay for your $20 Weekend Membership when he or she picks up the team registration folder. He will then give you the ChampCar event wristband.
  7. All registered drivers and crew. Be on the lookout this week for an email being sent out from Chelsey. I will also post the contents of the email to all of our social media just in case you have unsubscribed from our email list.
  8. The drivers meetingvideo will be done later this week and posted to the ChampCar Youtube channel and linked via the web page listed in the supps. We will ahve QR Codes all over COTA Campus for you and your drivers to watch the video. You will email questions to Chelsey.Vickery@champcar.org Please remember, this is our first event back, and we are trying to make these changes as easy for you as we can. PLEASE tell everyone attending the process of getting into the track. Especially Arrive & Drive teams. Download the waivers. Print the waivers. Sign all of the waivers. 1 person, one set of waivers. These are your tickets to get through the front gate. If someone shows up to the front gate without their waiver forms, they will not be let in. Team captains. We are looking at you. Make certain all of your team people have their waiver forms, signed, and with them as they enter the gate. Remember, No waiver forms, No enter. The gate guard will NOT have copies. He will only collect them, and hand you your entry wristband. Go to #1 and start again. whew. please don't get mad at me for the above. I am probably going to be the guy that forgets his signed waivers.

  11. Just spoke with Chelsey. Unless otherwise instructed... everyone in your truck/group, must sign a seperate waiver.. so print out enough for everyone. https://champcar.org/mainweb/pdf/ChampCar-Covid-Waiver.pdf Those will be your tickets to get a on-site entry arm band. The team captain will then pay for the Weekend Membership armbands at registration. You will then get another arm band. I think that works
  12. ah. ok. let me see what the event director wants to for that kinda of entry. we are not going to have a person on the gate accepting money. But let me sort out how we want to do that.
  13. How do I put this... We are awaiting the final info from COTA, there are some details that we still need. They say they are complete and approved. We just have not got them. we are following up today with phone calls. We would like it if no children were on site, and only drivers and crew. so it your family are crew, then boom, sitting on pitlane, in the air conditioned sun. Please remember, this is our first event back. We have all of our rules and procedures in writing, but, they are untested. We know there may be issues. There are a lot of rules that we have to go by, tracks, city, states, CDC, our insurence company, COTAs insurence company, Bob down in facilities, and probably some thing else. We will be adapting as we go. If you need to yell as anyone, please find me. I am the media and marketing guys. Nobody cares about me. I am the best guy to yell at. But stop when I curl up in the fetal position. You can find me onsite. This is me. The cool looking guy. I also like to hug.
  14. If you see issues with that, please post them, so we can work it out
