Charlotte Championship?? (NOT an official event thread)


Recommended Posts

So I haven't seen it mentioned in the forums all weekend (and that has really surprised me since the trunklid of a particular car has garnered a lot of action).

 

So there is a red flag video on FaceBook that says we are going to have the Championship race at Charlotte this year.  14 hour, one day.  The week after the Road America race.  I have to admit that I don't love that track - maybe some of you can talk me into wanting to go.....

 

(if there is already a thread on this that I somehow missed, reply and I will do my best to delete this one or edit the title to indicate it is redundant)

Oh your all such manly men with balls coming out your ears and such.    Oh green font by the way.   Real men cover the windshield with wonder bread sticker when drivin then that high banks of nascar.

The answer is Road America, the Shark will great at that track. 

Per Mike. We will not be running any bus stops. It will be balls-wide-open NASCAR3 and the Tri-Oval. Bring your big boy panties.

Huggy... big boy panties. 
We have done this track before with little issue. It hugely fun. I almost won this race twice. So you have a good chance of doing well in your little e30. 

 

Oh, and my top speed on the track was 124mph.
same for Troy.

Check your brakes

Charlotte has not really been a brake killer but it is a great idea to be on your toes (tows?)  Please dbbl check your wheel torque, we have been around awhile, at one point almost winning if it weren't for a 12th hr crash, never a wheel issue till getting complacent/half heat stroked @ charlotte in 16, properly checked our lug torque pre-race and forgot to check midday, hour 12  had the RF loosen.

 

Note to self: If/when we ever go back, need to do a serious checklist around 4th fuel stop/hour 10 ;)

Ill be there.  I was just hoping for the front straight kink to slow us down into one of the more dangerous turns I have driven.  

124 only? Thats slower than VIR, do you have to lift in Nascar3/4?

We did MIS in the Subaru with the SVX and the M50 powered e30. We did 142 mph in the Subaru. It was fun!

If you lost brakes going into T1, wouldn't you just continue on the oval?

 Is the tire wall to stop cars from missing T1 and colliding with cars going from the infield onto the oval? 

yes.  and to define the course.  But mostly safety I believe

Someone would blast through and kill a car re-entering the oval.  

 

I think the Charlotte roval is the best in the country.

 

It could happen, I just figured that was less likely to happen then a car hitting the tire wall head on with no run off when they lose brakes. 

 

If it was cones,  you could at least control your own destiny instead of just crossing your arms and going Danica on it.
