6 Hour Group 5 Enduro

Last updated on 3 months ago
There will be an 6 hour Enduro race with Group 5 cars on August 8th and 9th at Viper's Pit Raceway. We will be using the rules from the "I-75 Orange Barrel" Enduro Group 5 series. 3-4 man teams. For our part we would like to use the same teams as we use for the Meadowdale 12 hour. A team from Madison will be attending and possibly teams from Detroit area and the Cincy area will hopefully be attending.

For those of you who may not know, The I - 75 Orange Barrel series is a 2 weekend event at Butch Dunaway's residence in Miami of Ohio ( close to Cincinnati ) and Clover Leaf Racing, Detroit area. Total laps from each weekend wins the series. My hope is the race at my residence will be part of the Orange Barrel series in the future.

Track power will be set at 12 volts.

Teams must supply their own controllers. Controllers will need to have alligator clips to connect to track.

Hotel information to follow.

OK, so the race is about a month away ( August 8th and 9th ). I'd like to get a head count to see where we stand with drivers. So if you can make the race, please opt in with the team you had raced for. We would like to keep the same teams as for the Meadowdale 12 hour. So when you sign in please indicate which team you were on: Rich, Jon or Denny. And if you want to race and were not on one of the teams, that's ok too, as we will place you on a team.

This Saturday, the team from Madison is coming to Viper's Pit to practice, so if anyone else wants to practice the track will be open. Grin
Denny I will be at Road America for the IndyCar race on Saturday. Will be at your race.
No Problem Larry. You know my track well enough to show up on Sunday and kick all our butts.
