Checked supps and Autobahn CC websites with no success so I'll ask here:

 

Any open track time on Friday?

I believe it is being used by  club membership, so don't think there is one that we know of. Could be wrong.

Not ChampCar hosted. We will check with the track to see if they are hosting anything.

We are up to 33 entries. I see some of the local teams like James Bondo,  Gyvulys, blue shells, Premium Dudes, and a few others within an hour or two of the track are registered. This is going to be a fun one!

I see quite a few Chicago/Milwaukee based teams missing from the list, so hopefully we can hit 40 cars by race day.

I don't have much room to trash talk, but I recall a Focus @hotrod being on the podium last time CC was at Autobahn - and there are some new and improved ones coming (hopefully) this year.

Yep finished 2nd there on Saturday 2017 our first ChampCar race!

Yes, the race that every single team that led a lap had some type of failure, ours being a broken passenger front coil spring with a 4 lap lead, right as the transition to the full course happened.....

 

That said, lets go!!!! 45 cars for this track would be a blast, 55 would make it a bit sketchy but still fun.  Also, anyone know about trackside camping being ok?

I emailed the track a few months back, sounds like there are camping spots to be had.  In summary:

 

- Camping for the weekend is $30. 

- No hookups available, so a generator is recommended (Tony at the track says to be courteous to your neighbor)

- Camping spots determined by paddock space.  Room on asphalt for RV/Trailers and grass for tents.

- Showers on both track facilities (North & South) will be available.  IIRC these are nice showers/bathrooms

 

Also noted in the email, which I didn't catch until re-reading just now - "test day on Friday TBD, link will be posted when decision is made" sounds like there will be a test day they just haven't finalized everything.

Bump to ask again - any update on practice day?

 

Also wondering about spectators...

 

 

Bumping will do nothing. 

Event directors don't watch the forums on a regular basis. 
email chelsey.vickery@champcar.org

or call her, her number is at the top of page one supps.

Good to know. Thanks, Bill for keeping us forum trolls honest.

Arrive and race.  Less chance of screwing up your car before the green flag.

Oooo I love that home track advantage... no practice for y’all to get the hang of the track and learn the bumps and pavement patches :)
