ChampCar Endurance Series Canada

Recommended Posts

CCESC will be run by Canadians using the ChampCar BCCR. Two countries. One rule book. One membership. One class system. One way to endurance race, flat out!

Canadians can race in the USA. And USA members can race in Canada. More details will follow soon. The 2020 schedule is being built and a North American Challenge Cup is being sorted. 

 

More information will follow in the coming weeks.

September 1, the 2020 BCCR will be released for everyone to review so they can start building their cars to race with ChampCar in both the USA and Canada.

 

 

CCESC sera géré par des Canadiens utilisant le ChampCar BCCR. Deux pays. Un livre de règles. Une adhésion. Un système de classe. Une façon de faire de l'endurance, à fond!

Les Canadiens peuvent concourir aux États-Unis. Et les membres des États-Unis peuvent participer au Canada. Plus de détails suivront bientôt. L’horaire 2020 est en cours de construction et une Challenge Cup nord-américaine est en cours de traitement.

Plus d'informations suivront dans les prochaines semaines.

Le 1er septembre, le BCCR 2020 sera publié pour que tout le monde puisse le consulter afin qu'il puisse commencer à construire ses voitures pour pouvoir courir avec ChampCar aux États-Unis et au Canada.

It's like this... We need cars racing. That's how you build the series to go to the tracks you guys want.

With the cheap Canadian peso, the Pacific Northwest teams would be all over this event. A nice welcome home to the wayward PNW teams that seem to have gravitated elsewhere?

Also, WCMA in Alberta has pushed endurance racing, since their sprints are causing them to lose money. A race at Area 27 would potentially spur a lot of WCMA endurance teams to show up there.

Also, let their in house Continental Tire series players come play in with Champcar, and you'll have a field that Champcar could be finally proud of in the Western Region.

Can you explain the economics? I don’t understood how a “weak” or “strong” currency makes a difference in a situation like this.

USA buying power is better with a weak currency as compared to the us$

It's cheaper for us to race there

The American dollar buys roughly 1/3 more in Canada. So a $1000 CAD event would only cost the equivalent of $660 (ish) USD.

Bill Strong giving economics lessons... we're doomed before we even got started. :(;) 

 

I lived in the UK for about 11 years,  back when every European country had its own currency, and you payed the markets to make your travel cheaper. The dollar was strong in those days, so travel was cheap.

Already had a talk internally about renting or if we can figure it out, towing up.

How about a return to the good old days and bring back the 24 Hours of Mosport. 

 

10 out of 10 I am in!  The Albino Rhino wants to go wreak some havoc on Mosport soooooo badly!

It is well worth a tow of any distance. You also don't have to worry about bringing spare parts as there are no small accidents at Mosport!

says 15 hours from my house...

Just looking at the elevation let alone driving it is worth the 15hrs.
