Default USVTA Great Lakes Super Series

2008/09 USVTA Great Lakes Super Series

This winter a four race series will be held for Trans-Am cars, under full USVTA rules and sanction. This will be a one drop with 3 races counting format. We will have "team" racing as well (explained below). There will be awards for the top 15 finishers and special prizes at the end of the series. Race fee will be $20 per race. Final dates will be announced soon.

Tracks------

November 9- Michiana RC Raceway--Mishawaka, IN
http://www.michianarc.com

December 14-Summit Raceway--Fort Wayne, IN
www.summitrcraceway.com

January 24-RC Performance--Madison, WI
www.RCPerformance.com

February 7-The Track @ Harbor Hobbies--Winthrop Harbor,IL
http://www.harbor-hobby.net/

Details-----
Racing
*3- 5 min. qualifiers and 1- 8 min. main
*Le Mans style heads up starts
*Racing will be held in conjunction with the track's regular weekend race day. This may be Saturday or Sunday depending on the track.
Points-
*100pts. for a win, and down from there, 99 2nd, 98 3rd, etc.
*1 point bonus for TQ
*2 point bonus for making all 4 races
TEAM Racing
*You may form a team with a minimum of 3 racers and a maximum of 6.
*At each race, only the 3 best finishes will count. Any racer from the team may score points, so it is not necessary that all team members attend each race, as long as 3 are there to represent the team.
*There is no limit on affiliation of team members. They can be from any track, city, state, etc. Racers from different places can form a team.
Concourse
*Each event will have a concourse event before the start of racing.
*There will be an award for the winner at each event.

Just out of curiosity. How much distance is between those tracks? I am 7 plus hours from all of it, but it sure sounds like fun.

I'd LOVE to see this class at 360 Speedway... I've seen one or two guys with Vintage TA cars at the track, but never enough to run a class. I might just have to do up a Vintage body and have a set of tires ready to go...

Can't wait! I know where at least three of my race weekends will be this winter. February... not so much.

Time to start planning the Concours entries.

Well, if I don't want to wake up with a fork stuck in my neck, I won't be planning many races in January, February and March.

I dunno, Doug... I've learned over the years to ALWAYS sleep with one eye open...

Glad to see this come together! After the Nationals this spring, it's great to see this continue to grow!

I have a TC3 I might consider not selling if USVTA started. I have loads of 27 turns and 4 cell packs.
