ChumpCars set for a pair of 8-hour enduro races

The ChumpCar World Series – North America’s home for $500 race cars and endurance racing – is on BIR’s schedule for a pair of eight-hour endurance races, July 15-16. Saturday’s race will be on BIR’s 2.5-mile Competition Road Course while Sunday’s race will be on BIR’s historic 3.1-mile Donnybrooke Road Course with its mile-long straightaway.

ChumpCar racing features hunks of screaming junk that are basically held together with duct tape and bailing twine. It’s grassroots racing for people who like to wrench on their cars, drive fast and have a blast doing it. If this sounds like you, check out the ChumpCar website and sign up a team. Teams are required to have a minimum of four drivers who take shifts driving.

The series rules are pretty simple: Your race car can’t be worth more than $500 before you install specific safety equipment. You also need a ChumpCar Competition License, which you can get by enrolling in the two-hour ChumpCar Driver’s School prior to the race.

It’s as much fun to watch as it is to participate.
