Thumbs up May 22/23 2010@Shannonville So you want to race cars, but you dont have alot of money

Well this looks like a blast!

I just entered my team into the Chumpcar World Series event that will be held at Shannonville May 22/23, 2010. Chumpcar is a series where everyone races a $500 dollar car in a two 7 hour endurance races. This event will take place on Shannonvilles Long track (4km). This is a team event -minimum of 4 drivers.

This is a perfect race for a guy like me whos wife would get a divorce if I raced weekly. It also work for the family man, or someone who has always wanted to race cars.

No driving experience is required and there will be a Novice driver course on the friday before the event for new drivers, perfect for some of my team members!

All rules are available at www.chumpcar.com and the rules in full are located http://www.chumpcar.com/ChumpCar_rules_2010.pdf

One of our drivers donated our beater and we installed a csc racing cage. My team is really looking forward to the event at Shannonville in May - It looks like alot of fun!

If you want more info PM me or visit www.chumpcar.com

4.2.1.1 "Tire selection is open, so long as the tire is DOT legal and the treadwear is rated at 190 or higher".

My guess is that for a 7 hour event, a number of tires are going to be trashed.

Looks like fun from the videos. Although I don't think that I want to be following the car with the rubber chickens hanging off the rear bumper.

I guess if you want to burn up tires by all means select a soft tire. But to keep the costs down and maximize the fun factor we went with a 300 treadwear rated tire.


Thanks

We did the entire Nelson Ledges 24 hour lamest day on one set of tires.
The outdoor temp was pretty low (probably be the same that time of year up there) and they did not get terribly abused.
But i think a fresh set for each race will last you. There will be lots of yellow flags and guys pouring a 24 of Busch in your car.
Wish i could make it but i'll be at Laguna Seca

Most ice racers would make a perfect car for this event, obviously without the "tractionized" rubber and or studs


Heres a new video... Chumpcar Reality Show

Also might be there. Ran the lamest day at nelson ledges in the #337 dodge stratus.. good times! Hopefully the car will last longer this time.
