Becker421 Posted June 24, 2018 Report Share Posted June 24, 2018 I decided to get back into road racing after a 5 year break from the sport. I grew up racing 125 shifter karts. When I started looking up local shifter kart series in Wisconsin where I live there are no real series anymore. That’s when I found ChampCar endurance racing. This really seems like a realistic way to road race cars. I do have some questions I hope you all can answer. From what I understand the car must remain stock besides safety equipment and if your car is under 500 points you can do small upgrades that will count towards your points. Is this correct? Or are people doing a lot of modifications to be competitive. Second question is what does a typical race weekend cost? I know that’s broad but I’m just curious what entry fees cost for a whole team to enter and how many sets of tires people go through and what type of tires. I know depending on if the car breaks and bringing spares will factor the cost. 3rd, what is a good competitive car to get? I am currently looking for a car to build. I am not opposed to buying a prebuilt car but have not seen anything in my area. And how much does the safety equipment for the car cost someone? I’ll do all my own work besides the cage because I don’t trust myself to weld that correctly. Thank you in advance.
