ChampCar allows teams to compete at legendary racetracks across the United State's including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey California, Sebring International Raceway in Florida, Road America in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin and many more. Each car has its’ strengths and weaknesses. Small agile cars tend to do better on small tracks and higher horsepower cars do better on larger tracks, so certain teams will have advantages based on their car and setup. Road America is our local track and offers two races per year, one in spring and one in fall. We will start by attending both Road America races each year. This will give us time to put the car through it's paces and get familiar with the league. As we become more established we'll to branch out and attend races at other tracks outside of the state.
ChampCars are meant to be an affordable entry into racing, something the average Joe's of the world can get their hands on. To promote this, cars entered into the ChampCar Endurance Series are rated on a Vehicle Performance Index (VPI). Each car has a base VPI assigned to it. Performance upgrades such as suspension, brakes, and engine modifications add points to your car. Cars entered must be below 500 VPI or they will receive penalty laps. Well balanced cars with good fuel economy are frequently found in ChampCar races. Mazda Miata's, BMW E30's, Nissan 240's as well as cheaper cars such as Caveliers and Neons, are favorites of ChampCar teams. You won't see many V8 muscle cars.
