RobStahl21 Posted June 23, 2021 Report Share Posted June 23, 2021 Warning - not a quick read... But potentially free steak to responders! :0 Done a few champ events as an arrive and drive pay driver (and a lot of track days otherwise... tNIA, hpde, chin, etc)... so for champ I've kind of just showed up and joined the team and contributed wrenches/pits/driving/and obviously $$$, but never was involved in building the car/tech. Few track day buddies and I just bought a car that competed in multiple NASA st5 events in 2019. Seemed like a good starting spot for us. Teched, sorted, logbook, reliable, etc. Want to run 4-5 champ events a year... Likely just 2-3 this year, I digress. Belts are good through 2021, fire suppression into 2022 as well... Our understanding after trying to dig through rules and specs is that we should be good... Seems NASA is equal or more stringent on most tech. But as noted, us track day lovers are still in street cars and are not veteran racers... So it's getting confusing at points in the rules. Any input would be very appreciated... We'll grill you some complimentary steaks if you're local in the Great lakes area! If you're not, well OmahaSteaks delivery is still pretty good. We're definitely over in points, probably like 600 points based on my reading.... but we don't much care if we start down laps or bumped up a class... is our intro to racing: 2 very green novice drivers, 2 competent intermediate drivers. A U-Haul trailer, extra set of wheels and tires, extra brake set, extra oil, drain pans for oil/pit, basic plethora of tools... That's what we have to work with. Car ran all 8 races in 2019 ST5 (sprint, not endurance) with no breakdowns, so hoping for the best. Does have necessary cooling upgrades that would be required for endurance racing a "luxury automobile" (insert crapbox vw) like oil cooler and bigger radiator Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
