Mostmint Racing 2019 schedule

Postby MostMint » Fri Aug 31, 2018 7:16 am

2019 is going to be another interesting year.

This plan is not firm yet but here is what I have so far:

1 Corvette street test - like get this car on the road
October 2018

2 Corvette autocross and or drag racing
Dragway 42
autocross 10/21 or 10/28
* this may be optimistic :lol:

3 winter test for Corvette - possibly Roebling Road in January

4 private track day early June to test Corvette, possibly Saturn, possibly new driver training

5 Race weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Two 10 hour races on July 13 and 14
Travel 7/11 and return 7/15
Vehicle TBD

6 Race weekend at Gingerman
Two races: 8 and 7 hours
August 24-25
Vehicle TBD
* I would like this to be a new driver training race. Could possibly be John H's Neon with all new drivers
* Considering Corvette debut at the this race also.

7 Race weekend at Nelson Ledges
24 hour race
September 7-8

Anything else I should be considering?

I am excited about this opportunity! When we actually went to Michigan International Speedway in 2014 it opened my eyes to significance of racing at these top notch venues. Indy was one I thought not possible for us until now.

I'm in for Indy & Nelson Ledges.

Nelson on Sept 7/8 should be really good weather.

Indy is going to be expensive. Bottom line is $2800 for entry (about 2x normal) and we have to buy their gas. Preliminary estimates put the total cost around $6300 - which will be basically $1600 each split four ways. Plan would be a 2 hour stint for each driver each day with four extra hours to address problems or divide up as we see fit.

Supplemental rules are here: https://champcar.org/register/supplementalrules/376.pdf

We will be driving over the bricks every lap though. 8)
