Is my Champcar membership a recognized racing license?

To participate in a Blackhawk Farms pre-race test and tune days , you need to be a licensed racer with a recognized sanctioning body and the proper safety equipment.

 

I recognize it.  Does that help?  ;)  It will be up to the party demanding the license.

I must be getting close to 100 endurance races too. 

I was just thinking the same thing.

 

I bet I have more races under my belt than some of the current F1 drivers...

I figured you were around that number. 

 

On a slightly more serious note, you could go to Speedhive and pull up all of your previous races and build a resume.

That's a good idea to bring my resume along with the Champcar membership. 

 

I have a resume that  I used to get me into an SCCA race in 2016 at Blackhawk farms (took 1st place in typical SCCA fashion). I have the SCCA participation log book too.

I keep a spreadsheet of all races, # stints, total track time etc.   I have an expired SCCA license, and they said this was enough to get it reinstated.    Which I never did.

 

But the spreadsheet was enough to prove to someone I was active and experienced.   Same with going to a expert run group at an HPDE.

Yea, I just run in the novice groups because when they ask how much time I have with an instructor it is 0.

For what it is worth (zero), I would vouch for your ability to kick a$$ on a race track.

I'd say your scca deal from 2016 should work but a full race history , resume , would be a sure thing I would think ..  If that doesn't work have them give me a call I'll vouch for ya .. I haven't kept track but we have been through a lot of corners together ,successfully I might add ..

Speaking of CCES membership...

 

I would like to ask you guys to test something for me...

I have been having some really big issues with the digital Membership card not working.

We have another product we will be moving to at a later date, but until that project is completed, I need something that will keep the membership happy.

Please log into your CCES account (where you register for a race) and look in the right navigation for the Print Membership Card. click.

Then click print this page. Cut the membership card out and laminate. or not.

Ended up running with track night in 'merica yesterday. It was very well run and enjoyable, I would recommend to others.

Did they let you run your racecar?

 

Does it have a passenger seat?

 

I was just talking to @bbaker480 about how I thought TNiA might not be worthwhile.  From what I have heard, it is for first timers to get on track...

I could play the complete noob card and take the Prius and run with the novice group :ph34r:

Yes, I ran the racecar. 

 

No passenger seat. 

 

The novice group was lots of first timers. They had an intermediate group and an advanced group. I was explained ahead of time that this is not a test and tune session and not to bang out lap times or bother anyone on track. I made sure I was on my best behavior, and had 0 issues.
