TWO SERIES & LOTS OF RACING: In Twenty21 DriveTeq plans to continue its “Arrive & Drive” endurance race program under ChampCar and Lucky Dog Racing Canada (LDRC) 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:
- Seat time to improve car control and race craft skills;
- Transitioning drivers from driver education lappers to racers;
- Driver safety;
- Professional, organized & respect culture;
- Team fun; and
- All on a modest budget!
In each of the two organizations that we plan to run in 2021, 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. ChampCar groups race cars by a predetermined value system based on age, engine displacement and modifications. LDRC groups cars by lap time during a qualifying period prior to each race weekend. In each case, the cars are required to be properly prepared with racing safety equipment. Overall, we expect at least 14 hours (or more) of drama, comedy, dance, and lots of fun. The following is each organization’s rules of participation:
- ChampCar (nee ChumpCar), visit www.champcar.org
- Lucky Dog Racing Canada (LDRC), visit www.racelucky.ca
- #821 – Our beautiful BMW E82 128i #821 race car (Code Name: GINA) was built to Champcar Group B specs. It was thoroughly tested over 3 race-weekends in 2020 and found to be fast, safe, reliable, comfortable, and handles well. Join the team in 2021!
