Video: A Taste Of ChampCar At Utah Motorsports Campus

News, Racing I By Jeff Sexton I October 31, 2018

Champcar World Series is a low-cost endurance racing series. It was previously known as ChumpCar and has a format somewhat like LeMons racing. The rules are set up to make the cars relatively inexpensive to build and the endurance format allows 3-5 drivers to split the expenses. Licensing is also easier than in traditional club racing.

Here Winding Road Racing contingency participant Ben Marquart takes us for a lap of Utah Motorsports Campus (near Salt Lake City) in a Champcar race. You can see that cars make speed differently and you can see that in a long race forcing a pass is unnecessary. Passing skills, however, are an important element of average lap times.
