I presume Jeffrey Labounty and his 1.6 meet all the criteria. Welcome to Wisconsin Jeffery & great racing. [thumbsup]

The SCCA Central Wisconsin Region announced today the June Sprints will use the same 2.25 mile "NASCAR circuit" that the NASCAR Nationwide Series will use during the June 18-19 event at Road America. This track configuration uses the straight section of road between turns 5 and 13, creating a 4 turn rectangular course. The track now has a longer, more exciting, straightway between the exit of turn 3, and the new turn 13, which allows for more drafting and passing.

The course configuration was suggested by ESPN, and also allowed the construction of new luxury grandstands at the bottom of the hill between turns 5 and 6, which will remain in place for the June Sprints. Fans in the luxury grandstands will now see the cars for 23 laps per race, versus 13 laps in the old configuration. It is a similar strategy that has been used at Watkins Glen and Infineon Raceway.

It was also announced that the new track will be run anti-clockwise, so there will be more left turns for the NASCAR drivers.

That would solve the problem for the 1.6 cars. Downhill into 14 would be all they need.

Also miss F1 decade.. In 07 or 08, when they showed the 97/98 F1 cars, I think they were nicest looking ever

Come on there's 8-10 or so folks from the SouthEast, how about some of your good ol smack. Even JD2 has been very low key. I'm on my way & other than crewing with an F production car my main interest is watching the Labounty 1.6 adapt & do his thing. [yep] Oh, & also the magic of OPM with Steyn. [thumbsup]

Rich, don't ya wish you had your 1.6 to draft with Labounty rather than that other Spec car yer driving. [Wink]

Wow. At about the 4 minute mark things got a little crowded. Have you gone back and counted how many cars the two of you passed in this video?
