Decal locations are shown in the BCCR appendix. Please download and READ the 2019 BCCR here as we have had some rule changes.

As much as it pains me to say this, we wont be able to make this race.  Sonoma is my favorite California track :( 

Come to Iowa and I will loan you our car. It would only be 72 hours to come and return. Then another 36 to go home.

 

Maybe I'm over estimating but its a long ways

Your funny, Virginia is an easy tow. To Iowa that is.

 

We plan to go west in 2020 to Sonoma.

Plates are over rated, live life and take the risk.

Hi Bill,

Was just looking at the sups and it says they're seven hours in the header but in the info in the schedule shows us racing from 8am to 12pm and 1pm to 5pm (8 hours).  So are they going to take the hour from the start of the race or from the end?  I need to know for my master plan race strategy.

Thanks

All entrants, email me your driver info, and car info, and some cool stuff about your team that we can use on the show?

 

Drivers - anything special about them? Stories? Years racing?
Car - all the cheaty bits? we won't tell tech.

Where is your team based out of?

 

I will post a number that you guys can text info to during the event. Like, let us know what you are leading or losing this race.

so, a couple of things --

last year there was fuel (lots of different types all the way to 112 I think), and the sups say "no fuel".  Hopefully there is fuel there????

also - garages -- nothing in the sups about garages.

We have 85 cars for Road Atlanta. 22 for the tiny VIR south track. 20 for Sonoma.

 

We are doing this race no matter how many show. I purchased my plane ticket and rental car. I am coming to this race. I am visiting my family in Vallejo. 

 

How can we increase the numbers here?
