ChicagoIndoorRacing is putting on a six-hour endurance race for charity on February 27th at their Addison location, and I am planning on putting a team together. The Charity is to fight local homelessness (http://www.dupagepads.org/
). While there will probably be some local businesses with teams in the event, I suspect that there will also be several teams made up of amateur racers from several walks and that competition will be very good for the top spot. The cost and team size is TBD
, although I expect the cost to be between $600 and $1000 per team and team sizes to range between 10 and 16 drivers (based on what the director has said in driver meetings for local league events).
They are planning on having starting positions based on the amount of funds raised by each team, although given the running time of the race, starting position will be trivial to the final results. Every team will also be required to make the same number of driver changes and fuel stops, but it sounds like there may be some charity-based shenanigans, too.
I plan on doing an “arrive and drive” day sometime in mid February to give those who have never ran at this venue a chance to familiarize themselves with the track, too.
If you are interested, shoot me a PM and I will forward you more information as it comes along. Also, I would like commitments by February 7th, and if I don't have a full team I'll be looking to combine with another team.
