Last year it was 50* and sunny for the race that got cancelled. The weather was very nice.

The fall was icky and the spring canceled.  Sorry I wasn't clear.  I understand it ended up being nice, I think the issue was the mounds of snow on the sides of the track.  But it could have been like bumper bowling!

Yep. 

 

I ended up at a birthday party for my 3 year old nephew about 10 miles from the track. My Dad was so bummed he just went to the track and all the local dining and drinking establishments after the birthday party. I remember wearing shorts and a polo at the birthday party that was outside, it may have been the nicest weather of any Road America event canceled or not. 

IIRC you are correct that the issues Road America had was snow on the grass and in the run off areas, the track conditions themselves were perfect.

Weather for RA always seems to be a crapshoot. Being as it's one of the most northern tracks, it sure would be nice to get a date other than early spring or late fall.

Sure would.  Too bad the track is in such high demand.

Road America should be great with that Hiroshima Huff 'N Puff set to maximum ChooChoo on the Doom Cruiser.

Trade a May date at COTA for the April date at R.A. 

 

 

See you guys at R.A.

 

Look for a big blue Cat. With a luggage rack on the boot. Proper attire is in effect for such a iconic track. As A6 Navy pilots once said of the last of the gun fighter jets " ugly but well hung". 😎

yes, Champcar always uses the bend, not the kink. It's been heavily debated here on the forum which is safer, with folks arguing it both ways.

I was always advocated for running the kink up until actually running it. Having started road racing in Lemons, I never ran Road America before the 2011 spring Champcar event. I ran the Kink at Road America in WRL after several year of waiting. There were a handful of cars badly damaged or totaled in kink, and my car had a tank slapper  that would have totaled the car if our driver did not save it. 


I think the kink is just an added risk that is not necessary in true budget racing.

Good.  Even the most experienced racers have a tough time with the kink.  Add traffic into the mix and it would be a disaster.  So, I'm very glad to hear this.
