Hey guys,

 

We just finished putting together our calendar for 2017 and curious who else is competing at some of these races...
Any gems we might be missing?

 

Chump dates will always be a priority, but we've also included a couple AER this season as they seem to fit our other race schedules and hit some fun tracks.

Lets see some more team plans for this season!

For a Honda team, these events may warrant another look:

 

We are doing Autobahn Country Club June 3/4 - This will be a 12+6, and hasn't been raced by Chump since 2014. Nice facility, momentum track with some sacrifice corners. Chump may not be back for a couple years so this is a "can't miss" event for us (NCM / RA / etc. are on the calendar every year!!).

 

Gingerman is also on the schedule (August 26/27) - This is one of the $600 entry events, so I'm hoping for a big draw. This is a pure handling track and tough to get 'right', very fun.

@Ron_e Everyone's welcome, but you'll need to stay quiet when we cross the border! ;)

@thewheelerZ We'll create & post a specific ChumpCar Canada schedule once theirs is official. Hopefully it'll make sense for us to sponsor the series again and support Chump in Canada.
As of right now, we've blocked off the September weekend at CMP, but may have to split resources for the July 1-2 as we've already committed to the Porsche Cup race at Watkins Glen that weekend.
@enginerd Unfortunately Autobahn & Gingerman conflict with other races already, but once of these days we'll get there!

IF we can get the whole team together, probably NCM since it's pretty close to St. Louis and Gateway is gone.  If not that, also looking at Hallett or Heartland Park with WRL.  Those are both bucket-list tracks for me.  Either way, sounds like we're only going to be able to do 1 race, if that

With no Chump Gateway race this year, we're doing all WRL

Road Atlanta

Road America (finally get to drive the kink)

Heartland Park Topeka (newly repaved)

Mid-Ohio

 

Then TBD (maybe two of the three) not sure yet.  

AER @ National Corvette Museum

WRL at COTA

WRL at VIR

Both!  Need all the East and Canada teams to come make Gingerman super competitive this year :)

 

I'm sure you will easily crush everyone. One day I hope to get my track record back from you, although that will be really really tough. 

 

Do I still have the MIS record, or did you break that? I assume someone will beat my Autobahn record this year too.

I think all records will fall.  Consider this year and next the permitted steroids turbo and swap years of dominance.

I do have unfinished business there. Back in 2010 I had my first on track incident. I hit that damn 3 legged deer in the neon at night. 

 

Would love to go go back with the Cruiser and finish the job.
