takjak2 Posted January 19, 2018 Report Share Posted January 19, 2018 Thanks to Champcar for compiling the finishing data in order to calculate the championship standings. In 2017 we had 800 teams make up about 2300 race entries. I've built into that a database of 1026 cars over a slightly wider 16 month period. With at least 3 members on almost all teams, we can estimate that active membership is easily over 3000. In the coming days I'll be studying average finishing positions and winning rates by various teams and their cars of choice, but first here are the breakdowns for Year, Make, and Model as raced in 2017: Now, some teams obviously enter more races than others. Here is a look at how that plays out, again for Year, Make, and Model: '87, '91, '94, and '99 turn out to be good vintages (or a good pick for claiming platform swap) Not too different. It turns out (as it should, with a large sample size) that a Fiesta or Datsun team is nearly as likely to enter multiple events as a Miata or E30 team. *No [reliable] engine data is available to differentiate further. *Datsun and Nissan have been combined *Includes EC cars Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
