  9. We now have a Maxxis VR-1 contingency. We are just awaiting the required decals from Maxxis. You DO NOT have to run the tires or the decals! You DO NOT have to run the tires or the decals! You DO NOT have to run the tires or the decals! You DO NOT have to run the tires or the decals! But if you want the free tires, you have to run the decal on the front fenders sides. and have at least two Maxxis VR-1 tires on for the duration of the event. and have a receipt showing you purchased 4 tires. Overall positions only, no class,... 1st place - 4 free tires 2nd place - 3 free tires 3rd place - 2 free tires 4th - 10th place - 1 free tire. All of the details will be released once we get the decals in stock.
  10. I had a meeting with Michelin at Road Atlanta. in 2021ish they will have a Cup2 tire that is 240TW rated, but is 1/2 a second slower than the RE71R in their tests. I shared the 15" sizes you guys are racing. They seemed excited about entering this series. We won't be using a spec tire. that's just dumb.
  11. On Halloween weekend 2009, ChampCar (as ChumpCar back then) launched our first event. 10 years later we'll throw our 302nd green flag at AMP. But you're not here for that, you want to race. Read on to answer some of your most pressing questions. Gates - Gates will open at 7am Friday for all teams. Test Day - Discovery Parts is hosting a test day on Friday. The cost is $275 per car. For more info and to register, click here - https://discoveryparts.com/amp-events/3513-october-25-open-track-day-at-atlanta-motorsports-park.html SOUND LIMIT - AMP strictly enforces a sound limit of 98dB. If their equipment catches you over that limit, you will be black flagged and given one chance to repair your exhaust. After your 2nd offense you will be parked for the day. Pit Assignments - Click here for your pit assignments. Transponders - If you entered a transponder number (or entered anything really) while you where registering we assume you're bringing your own. Please verify that you have entered the correct number or that you reserved a transponder if you're not supplying your own. If you use a subscription based MyLaps X2 transponder, make sure your subscription is current. When your subscription ends, the X2 will not count laps! Tech - All cars will need to be tech'd for 2019 unless you've had your 2019 annual tech completed. Bring all your paperwork filled out and make sure you have read the rules. Swap cars with no paperwork will likely be put in EC. Tech opens at Noon on Friday. Decals will be handed out at Tech and will be required to pass tech. Decal locations are shown in the BCCR appendix. Registration - Make sure you tech first, then bring your yellow logbook and tech sheet signed by us directly to registration. Before you arrive, log in and check your driver roster for accuracy. Make any corrections ahead of time. If you are fully paid with the correct drivers, check-in is a 3 minute process. If you are not coming (work issue, car issue, etc), email me to let me know you will not be there. Sponsors - Tire Rack will be awarding a $400 gift certificate for tires to a lucky winner. Novice School - For any first time road racers, we'll hold our novice school at 5pm on Friday on the 2nd floor of the main building.

  12. The TireRack.com ChampCar Endurance Series test and double-7-hour enduro is quickly approaching. We want every team to understand the importance of showing up with a quiet car. https://champcar.org/mainweb/news/sound-limits-at-laguna-seca-a-monterey-christmas/

  15. 40 cars. I will check on the break. Make certain your car is fracking quiet!!!! That means that is MUST be quiet!!! If you have to ask if your car is too loud, then it is too loud! Test the car UNDER LOAD! not free reving. Intake noise adds to the sound, so quiet those intakes! MAKE YOUR CAR QUIET! How quiet? READ THE SUPPS! https://champcar.org/register/supplementalrules/398.pdf
  16. FYI... Saturdays race: there will be a film crew (25 to 30 people) on site with 2 special guests driving on two teams. You may see a drone flying overhead. that has been allowed ONLY for this event.
  17. As I posted up earlier.... We still have to complete the west and Canadian part of the schedule. It is NOT complete... I had a meeting with the Canadian group that will be running the racing in Canada. More tracks are coming soon. Out west, again, more coming.
  18. Saturday Impound Interviews Race results posted here:https://speedhive.mylaps.com/Events/1736003And on Google:https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1sW_rTCUqlGFD9-ogjPPteyQ22SQIeD1P
  19. I was waiting to hear from the boss... It is a 7 plus 7 with a one hour red flag at lunch both days. So it would be 8 hours. So 7 hours of racing.
  20. Update! Sonoma Championship format - Two separate races with the points from each day adding to the Championship total. In the event of a tie at the end of the weekend (ex, two teams finish 1-2 & 2-1 on sat/sun), the higher finishing team on Sunday gets the Championship. There will be no Parc Ferme on Saturday night, teams are free to repair their cars.
  21. It sucks when I have to work during the week, and when I am at the track. lol
  22. for the USA. other Canadian events may follow. sorry. That was aimed at the texas questions
  23. From what I understand with Eagles Canyon is that if we all showed up with Ferrari's or Lambo's, then they would welcome us with open arms. But since most racers in our group race real sports cars that are on the cheap end, well, you know. Maybe one day they will except us, much like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Daytona International Speedway, and COTA have.
  24. I am told that our schedule is done for 2020. What is publicly shown are all events excluding West events as we are still working with those folks.
