2019 Event Schedule posted above
This year there will be one all day test day and 7 race evenings. The championship will count 6 of the races. So if you have a schedule conflict or bad luck you get to drop one race so a better chance of winning the championship.
We will only present trophies if there are 2 or more cars in a class. There is a Legend class as long as there are 3 or more cars.
Any type of formula car sports racer or legend car is eligible, so long as you meet a few basic requirements.
You are responsible for your own technical inspection, however if your car is seen to be unsafe you may be removed from an event.
Qualifying as a Racer
So your car qualifies, but do you qualify to join us?
NOTE: This is a RACE not just lapping where we keep track of your place in the field. This is intense, with traffic, understand that before you sign up.
- Are signed off to drive solo at CMP?
- Do you have significant lapping experience and have a very high comfort level at the track?
- Are you comfortable in a lot of fast traffic? You don’t have to be fast, but you have to be able to do your thing, while being able to pay attention to all cars around you, and to point faster people by.
- Are you new to the series, there will be a peer review done before your first event, likely during the practice of your first event. These will be series veterans that will assess you on track and advise whether or not they feel safe to drive on track with you under race conditions
Contact Nigel at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your peer review.
