Indy Update

Re: After hours repairs.
The facility is not set up for night time activities to be done safely a there is just not the lighting. But...
This item is up for discussion by the track. We will discuss with them some scenarios at our next phone meeting. They are not against the idea, they just want to make certain everything can be done safely.

I woke up 8 minutes late (12:08) and registered. Figured I would check to see if anyone else had registered yet.... 96 cars were already in!!!!!!!!

 

Looking forward to this! 

 

@Jer is there for sure going to be no test day on Friday, just move in? Maybe Bill can organize the ability to walk the track on friday?

 

Maybe

Ugg, no idea indy filled up this fast. Was checking may be once a week to sign up before I saw the FB post about it already selling out. We really wanted to do another race outside of VIR this year and chose this one. . .Wait list it is I guess.

Working on it. No test day. But we may do some paced laps behind the Opel GT in your personal cars. It's early. But I will try.

Thank you guys for making this happen.

 

Question: Will staff be reviewing all the entrants for eligibility i.e. raced within the last year? How does that work?

Can't Wait for this event. I'm glad to see some familiar Team names on the entry list. 

Epic is the word for this.

yes. All entries will be vetted before the final list of entries is approved. All payments must be completed and all cars must have raced with ChampCar between January 1, 2018 and Indy race week.

Learned a lesson, last night.  I did not know about the driver pool size requirements.  I went to register our second and third cars, but discovered that our driver pool was not large enough.  Not a good way to kick off our ChampCar business.

 

Despite the letdown, I'm seriously impressed at the speed with which the event sold out.

The Bandits team from Idaho are bringing their TransAm to Indy! Anybody else from the West on the list or wait list?

Glad to see you got at least one car in! That's more than some people :)

Unfortunately, BuckSnort only had two drivers registered last night and frantically tried to have our other drivers sign up, but it was too late.

We'll be anxiously awaiting to see the outcome of the wait-list. Congrats to all the teams that made the cut and also to ChampCar for offering a once in a lifetime experience.

 

We plan to race again in 2019 after a year hiatus filled with weddings, graduations, new babies and work travel, but we're planning to refocus life priorities back to racing.

See you on the track!

No test day at Indy? Hope the speedway doesn't charge ChampCar for the fuel the safety trucks use. Just say'n!

 

Indy is VERY easy to learn, but tough to master.  You'll have it figured out by lap 3.  It's finding that last 5% which will still seem elusive, when you leave the track on Sunday.  It is an easy track that is deceptively challenging to drive fast.

 

On the plus side, the Indy safety crew is beyond incredible.  They were arguably the most entertaining feature of the Runoffs in 2017.

Couple of poinfs..

 

1st, it looks like the rusty cougar is coming out to play!  YES!

2) there are at least 2 teams that have 3 cars signed up.  (Thought it was limited to 2 cars).

 

3rd, this is not the only track that champcar has raced at with no practice.  It will be fine just like it was at every other track.

I too am gravely concerned about the lack of practice.  I humbly request that everyone stay to Driver’s left until we pass you.  We are willing to take one for the team and elevate the greater good by leading the way into the great unknown.

So, now that I’ve been shut out, who has an open seat?

Now that we are in there are many things to ponder, including a possible seat or 2 rental, stay tuned, I am sure we are not the only one with decisions to make.

Holly Cow.... we were having trouble getting to the website about that same time.

We got in a few minutes after you.

If you were #96 then we barely made it!

It's a long time until July.  Gonna be changes. 

Problem is, a lot of teams don't realize they can't make it until about a month out. 

I'm hoping we get in; would be awesome to race another corvette. 

Any idea when a waiting list (in order) will be published?
