TWO SERIES & LOTS OF RACING: In 2022 DriveTeq’s “Arrive & Drive” endurance race program will include Lucky Dog Racing Canada (LDRC) and American Endurance Racing (AER) rules. Since 2014, DriveTeq has been participating in low budget, high value endurance racing in Ontario (Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (nee Mosport, CTMP), Calabogie Motorsports Park (CMP), Shannonville Motorsports Park (SMP) and New York (Watkins Glen International (WGI)). Event formats are generally 7 or 8 hour races each day over a weekend.

DriveTeq’s emphasis is on the following:

  1. Seat time to improve both driving and racing skills;
  2. Expanding & transitioning performance drivers’ driving ecosystem to include racing;
  3. Driver safety;
  4. Professional, organized, respectful, welcoming & fun culture; and
  5. A reasonable budget!

THE SERIES:

In each of the organizations that we plan to run in 2022, the bar for racing experience is relatively low. While the cars have low market/performance values, they are required to be properly prepared with racing safety equipment. Both AER and LDRC group race cars by lap time during a qualifying period prior for each race weekend. In each case, the cars are required to be properly prepared with racing safety equipment. Overall, we expect at least 14 to 16 hours (or more) of drama, comedy, dance, and lots of fun. The following is each organization’s rules of participation:

  1. Lucky Dog Racing Canada (LDRC), visit www.racelucky.ca
  2. American Endurance Racing (AER), visit www.americanenduranceracing.com 

 THE CARS:

  1. #821 – Our beautiful BMW artcar inspired E82 128i #821 race car (Code Name: GINA) has been thoroughly tested over 9 race-weekends and numerous single-day rentals and found to be fast, safe, reliable, comfortable, and handles well. Join the team in 2022!
  2. #822 – Our latest BMW artcar inspired E82 128i #822 race car (Code Name: MARILYN) has been also tested during our 2021 race-weekends and rentals and equally found to be fast, safe, reliable, comfortable, and handles well. Join the team in 2022!
  3. #177 – The car that was responsible for all of the BMW E82 128i builds (Code Name: HULK) was built to be an example of low horsepower + great handling = astonishing lap times & driver satisfaction. Join the team in 2022.
