  1. all I can say is email Dana. but most likely they are charging everything that crosses the bridge with a car on it, or a camper. I don't know until I get there.
  2. Updated V3 supps uploaded. https://champcar.org/register/supplementalrules/421.pdf
  3. Unfortunately, our laptop that runs the race is packed up in the Champulance in North Carolina and Chris is in Florida. I will contact them just in case Chris has the data locally. But if not, we will need to sort it out at Sebring. Sorry.

  6. The Bod is meeting tomorrow night to discuss radiators.
  7. Sebring Announcement.... No guests. No spectators. No weekend memberships. Everyone must be listed on your team. The gate will have a list of names, if your name is not on the gate list, you will not be allowed in. I will update the supps tomorrow as I am traveling. Bill.
  8. Is this the bump steer adjusting parts you were talking about? https://www.speedwaymotors.com/BBK-2561-Front-Bump-Steer-Kit-CNC-Billet-Aluminum-HD-Heim-Joints,426506.html
  9. There has never been a charge for alternators or starters. Until someone posted it to the tech Desk. Hell, I used a non-Toyota MR2 starter and Alternator for years, even asked about it. Keeps the costs down when I can use cheap GM or Jspec ebay stuff. an alternator or starter (unless you have an automatic?) has never won or lost a race in our series. As some in our company are saying quietly, some of you are taking the fun out of this hobby. All this just to win a bit of metal and no money. I agree . My opinion.
  10. That video above is kinda slow. We have seen faster. Nine-Four Motorsports is one of the fastest we have seen. They have worked their venting to do the job.
  11. I can tell you for fact, that this is not the case. Bill has been involved with ChampCar from the early days. In fact he was one of the first Board of Directors. He know the rules, and how to stretch them as far as he can. Does he go over that moving line? That's up to tech to say. But I can assure you, there is nothing going on in the background that would help Jim Matthews Good Bad and Ugly Corvette. Jim is the owner of the car. Bill Riley and crew are the builders, crew, and racers in the car. Jim Owns and pays the bills. https://www.driverdb.com/drivers/jim-matthews/
  12. I seem to be the person that people call for tech, race, event, and relationship questions. Please call or text the event director Mike Morrison with those questions. 214.738.6072 I am packing up my gear for Road America, and will be driving there. FAQ. Decals - Can be purchased for a fee at the race. Must be installed before you go through tech. Bring vinyl to cut numbers, or tape. Pre-Tech - we don't do this anymore. sorry. Masks - Bring one and wear it when you are buildings, or when you are talking to CCES officials. Bend or Kink - ChampCar runs the bend. See
  13. I wasnt happy with the busy Road Atlanta map that they asked me to use. So I made a new corner map with the names and numbers. Even included the bend so you guys know not to crash into the tires at the kink. It's not GPS perfect. But it will give you a better idea of where to go. Download and print the attached PDF. Road-America-ChampCar.pdf
  14. email board@champcar.org since only a couple of the BOD members use social media. This way your words are reaching the bod.
  15. the tech desk was not supposed to be a second rulebook. it was supposed to be a paper trail for tech issues and questions so that we did not have hidden emails. I would like to apologize for this. I did not mean for it to become this monster. I was trying to fix one issue, and created 2 billion more.
  16. Probably because I wrote the supps in the late spring. but yes. no open flames.
  17. Supps updated https://champcar.org/register/supplementalrules/419.pdf ESN 4 - Teams may add up to 10% antifreeze to their radiators for this event.
  18. First thing you need to do is reuse some of that money you have and become a member, then get back to visiting us at some ChampCar races. That would be a very good start.
  19. Document it. We did this a few times with my car for stuff. Problem was that the quality was not there. I suck at that stuff. It's not as easy as the $20 BackYard Foundry book said it was.
  20. One of the best is Parts Badger. They document EVERYTHING being reused on the car.
