Monoposto Heads into the Fall
It’s been a busy summer for Monoposto racers with well-attended events at Mosport, Mt. Tremblant, Rd America and Grattan now in the books. Racing at all these great tracks was spirited and clean in the Monoposto way.
Monoposto racers always enjoy great racing, even when it’s not at a Monoposto event. Last year four formula B drivers from Colorado came east to race with us at Lime Rock and Watkins Glen. In early August four Monoposto members with B cars went to High Plains Raceway, east of Denver to race with RMVR. The weather was perfect and the track challenging to drive. High Plains is a long way to go but well worth it. Thanks to Dave Irwin and his friends for encouraging us.
As we head into the fall, with Monoposto championship races almost every weekend in September, we start with the 32nd Lime Rock Historic Festival in northwestern Connecticut over the Labor Day weekend. There is always a great turnout of Formula Juniors at this event. The following weekend we head to Watkins Glen for SVRA’s Glenora Wine Cellars U.S. Vintage Grand Prix. This historic track has seen F1 to Can-Am and everything in between. A truly challenging venue.
For those not wanting to make the trek east, Road America hosts VSCDA and their Fall Festival, the weekend of Sept 12/14, for our second trip to this great track in a beautiful part of the country. Then we wind up the month of September at VIR with SVRA’s Gold Cup races, always a fun weekend and a great time of year in the south.
Our 2013 F5000 champion Jim Stengel is featured above, congratulations to Jim on a great season! More of the trophies for our 2013 champions will be presented at the up-coming events.
We still need party hosts for Lime Rock, Road America and VIR. The gathering at the Glen will be hosted by Marc Giroux, Steve Scullen and Kurt Fisher, thanks guys! We look forward to a fabulous Monoposto party as always!
Remember, to get championship points, you need to be registered. There is still time, so look up me or Marc or Travis at the track, and we will make sure you are signed up.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the track!
