also curious.  I heard it was like 20-30 cars?

Yes, there were 24 cars on  Saturday, and 26 took the grid on Sunday. 

 

It was our first ever race. We had a great time, but was wondering what some of the former Chumpcar teams thought. Mostly curious so hear whether the teams that showed up will be coming back and if some of the teams that skipped the event are more or less likely to attend in the future.

I'd bet that there are a number of teams that didn't come due to how close it is to Watkins Glen next weekend. We had set our season schedule before the first Bogie race was released and are going to Watkins instead. 

 

It seemed like there were a bunch of brand new teams though, so that is a great thing. Overall pace looked to be down a fair amount with some of the top teams not there. Kinger were you running as A or B class?

 

As as long as the car comes home safe we will be signing up for Shannonville. Though, id probably expect the same numbers for that race too. And we plan on racing the August Calabogie race too as long as the car is still running. Hopefully we get 40-45 cars there again like last years final race.

We were placed in A class, although we weren’t at all competitive with the top cars in the class.

 

looking at the times through the weekend it seemed like there should have been three classes, with us slotted into the middle one. But I guess given the number of entries they didn’t want the classes to be too small. 

 

Our car and one other in the A class were running similar times to the top cars in B class. It was a shame cause we ran well with them all weekend and would have won the B class on Saturday. 

 

Having said that that it was a great experience and everything was well organized. We finished 6th and 8th overall, which exceeded our expectations going into to the weekend. We’re really looking forward to Shannonville in July.

Ufff, 3 class for 25 cars...  For an 8 hour enduro you'd be racing just yourself at the end!

 

Note the class B winner punching well above their weight with a win and a much slower "fast lap" time.

 

Glad to see you guys had a great time.  See you at Shannonville hopefully.
