Inaugural Jacksonville 12 hour, April 7th.

That was a close and exciting race this weekend. 130 drivers were competing in this event, and after 12 hours and 625 miles of racing the winning team won by only 19 seconds! Congratulations to all the teams that had the endurance to last for the whole race. Looking forward to seeing you again when we will be coming back to this track again in the fall. We will be having more races coming further up North (Charlotte Motor Speedway and Westhampton, Long Island). They are described to you after the results.

In addition to the "pro-class" and "rookie-class", we will also be running a class for teams that have an average of 40 or more years in these upcoming races.

The results are the following: <pre> Inaugural Jacksonville 12 hour April 7th, 2001

a.. Redline 781 b.. Cheaters 781 (19 seconds behind) c.. G-Men 2 780 d.. G-Men 1 780 (31 seconds behind) e.. Team Speed 772 f.. Strate Racing 771 (1st in Rookie class) g.. JC Racing 770 h..

</pre> Charlotte (Lowe's Motor Speedway) April 28th and April 29th
We still have two team openings (4 driver to a team) for the Charlotte 6 hour April 28th and five team openings for the Charlotte 4 hour on April 29th. There will be 22 teams competing in both races.

As one of only two tracks recognized by the FIA in the US the Charlotte track offers a challenging variety of turns and the safety of spacious run-off room. The track is wide with 15 high speed and low speed turns arranged to challenge racers. The facilities encompass pit areas and concession stand. The results are an exciting "driver's track" that promotes close racing, rewards consistent good driving and penalizes mistakes and risk miscalculations.

Westhampton - Long Island May 19th
Yes, we are coming to Westhampton. A lot of improvements have been made to the track and we will be running our first 6-hour race there on May 19th. The racing is always close and a lot of teams finish on the lead lap.

For both races we will be using brand new DINO karts, see the attached picture, with new 270 cc engines. The karts handle extremely well and with the Westhampton track layout, there will be plenty of great passing opportunities.

We are all looking forward to a great new season and hope to see you soon at the track. We will also be running 6 hour races at Westhampton on June 16th and July 7th.
