Next weekend brings us to the final event of the 2023 Monoposto Championship.
Of the eleven classes in which Monoposto offers Championships only two have been decided: Josh Boller in Formula Atlantic and Travis Engen in Indy Lights. There are six that are wide open with between three and five drivers competing as potential champions in each of them. Good Luck to everyone!
It looks like the entry list for Classic, F70 and Indy Lights reflects the fact that most of our championships are undecided. There are over 59 Classic Monoposto cars (including 21 FVs!) and 31 wings and slicks cars registered. While it’s clear that by the end of the weekend’s first round of races some of our 2023 champions will be decided, it will take the full weekend to name all our champions.
SVRA at Circuit of the Americas has been the final event on the Monoposto schedule each year since 2013 because of its location and the fact that CoTA is a fun and challenging track to drive. From the wide entry/narrow exit turn 1 through the very rapid sequence of the esses to the flat out “hang on for dear life” sweeper known formally as turns 16/17/18, the young track offers classic challenges. Many of the corner sequences have been modeled on classic tracks like Silverstone, Interlagos, Hockenheim and Istanbul. The long-term weather forecast looks cool so, except for some am showers, we should have a fine time at the Monoposto season finale.
Since the entry list for event is so large and the paddocks are widely spread apart there will be no Monoposto party. If you’d like to chat or lobby for next year’s schedule, please drop by my paddock area (usually near the Media Center) and say hello.
