Race format

 

7 plus 7-hour Enduro.  Red flag for lunch for each race.  

 

Sonoma Championship format - Two separate races with the points from each day adding to the Championship total.

 

 In the event of a tie at the end of the weekend (ex, two teams finish 1-2 & 2-1 on sat/sun), the higher finishing team on Sunday gets the Championship.

 

 There will be no Parc Ferme on Saturday night, teams are free to repair their cars.

We have just added a test day on Friday that will be included in your entry fee!

We are still discussing the race format for the weekend. When it is announced, we will update this post.

and FYI... we are not using the NASCAR track depicted in the image above. That decal image will be corrected before the 2020 season begins.

 

Nascar actually used the entire track this year, not the configuration shown.

They had to put on their big boy pants. LOL

And that is the config we have run in the past.  

 

Champ/Chump has run three different configurations there.  This is the most recent and looking good for Miata domination.  Throw in turn 9A to even things up a bit, hopefully for at least one day.  Regardless it is a fun track.

If qualified, I will tow out.  I don't even have a top 10 yet though (but only two races).  4 more to come in the next 4 months.

It is unless it rains. When wet it is the slickest surface I have ever driven on other than an ice covered road. But lets hope for dry, turn one flat out is a gut check for sure. Fun track.

Agreed, put me in the dumb category.  I would pass the leader, then spin out and watch them go right by me when I was in the Pomona car.

Well those Rivals are such a great rain tire.... 

 

@Pee Wee since you qualified, are you going to be there, or is that brutal tow up I5 going to keep you away?

He is going to be there, I'll convince him somehow.  I will work on it this week when we are doing the Route 66 ride across the country.  Should be full of awesomeness.

I'm guessing you have never driven Mid-Ohio in the wet.

 

I swear Mid-O turns into a skating rink when the weather man says 'predicting rain' and humidity gets above 65%.  When it actually rains, it feels teflon coated.  Think Clark Griswold on a sled slick....

You want to drag my car out there for me?   3 pts is a great starting point.  2367 miles away from the race track is not.

Maybe....

 

YES. You know you want to.
