The Fall Season is Upon Us
The Fall season for Monoposto is definitely getting underway. There 3 events remaining in the season for most classes. The exceptions are FJr with 4 (including CSRG at Sonoma) and only 2 for Indy Lights (VIR and COTA). As of now there are NO class championships decided, so get out there and score some points! Remember, there is a requirement of participation in a minimum of 3 events to win a class championship. One of the undecided Championships is F5000. Mark Harmer was the 2014 winner, seen above in a nearly vintage photo of him in his Surtees TS5.
For the next event Monoposto Racing returns to Road America for VSCDA’s Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival. The schedule has a separate run group for Formula Vee’s which makes for 3 open wheel groups in total. As it is a long and fast track, the Vee racing should be tight with lots of drafting and passing and exciting to watch.
Your Monoposto Party host at Elkhart will be Bob Burnside. The party will start at his paddock on Friday after the end of racing activities. He should be located in the grassy area a few rows South (towards start/finish) from the false grid entry. Bob has a 27-foot black and silver trailer. Please stop by to chat with the other competitors and to say thanks to your host.
The weekend of September 24th – 27th will be SVRA’s Heacock Classic Gold Cup at VIR. This is another great track for open wheelers with flowing turns and lots of elevation change. Your Monoposto Party host at VIR will be Travis Engen. The party will take place at the GMT paddock on Friday after the end of racing activities. We are looking forward to a good turnout so the remaining 2014 Championship trophies can be presented. Please join us in the fun and camaraderie.
President, Monoposto Racing
