SCSA Announces Biggest Ever Prize Fund for 2005
Minimum $1.1million Prize Fund and Drive in the United States for 2005 Champion
The 2005 SCSA Racing championship will boast a prize fund of at least $1.1million, a 10% increase on 2004. On top of that, the top three drivers in the series will have the opportunity to compete in an American Speed Association (ASA) race in North America at the end of the year.
The 2005 SCSA Champion will receive a fully funded drive with an established team for one ASA race. The second placed driver will get a 50% funded drive and the third placed driver 25% funding.
"This is a great opportunity for our top drivers to race with the leading stock car teams in the United States," said SCSA Race Director Mark Claussner. "The prize fund currently stands at $1.1million but we are actively working to increase this over the winter and is a mark of our commitment to producing the top motor racing series in Europe. This prize fund, including the chance to drive in the United States, will help attract top teams and drivers to compete on the two fastest circuits in Europe next year."
The first race of the 2005 SCSA season will take place at Rockingham in Northamptonshire on Sunday 1st May, with the first of two visits to the 2-mile oval at Eurospeedway Lausitz in Germany on the 29th May.
Rockingham and SCSA Racing
The Stock Car Speed Association (SCSA) series (formerly known as Days of Thunder) features 170mph American V8 car racing on high speed banked ovals at Rockingham and Eurospeedway Lausitz in Germany.
Rockingham's 52,000 seater venue offers 100% visibility from 95% of its seats, which means fans can witness all the action at Europe's fastest circuit.
Top music acts will perform on the Rockingham Stage at the Thunder Sunday at the Rock events in 2005 and in 2004 music artists performing at Rockingham included Blue, Peter Andre, Girls Aloud, Rachel Stevens, Lemar, and Jamelia.
Thunder Sundays at the Rock will take place in 2005 at Rockingham on the first Sunday of every month from May through to October -- 1st May; 5th June; 3rd July; 7th August; 4th September; 2nd October.
SCSA Racing will also visit the 2-mile banked oval circuit at Eurospeedway Lausitz in Germany on May 29th and August 28th.
