wheel of a modern sports car and
taking on some of the best drivers in
the country appeals to you, World
Challenge might be the place for you.
Here you will find highly strung
factory built racecars, highly modified
muscle cars and even tuned up
economy cars. There are four classes
in World Challenge, offering a wide
range of speed and budget options to
suit your needs.
Does it take 800hp, a tube-frame
chassis, and a silhouette body to get
you revved up? Look no further than
Trans Am. These purpose-built
racecars are all business – and while
this is one of the oldest series in North
America, these cars sport the state of
the art in racing technology.
If you have the skills behind the
wheel but don’t fancy yourself an
engineer, take a look at MX- 5 Cup.
These spec cars offer close racing,
and since the cars are identical you
are not as likely to get beat in the
garage. Great driving is the key to
success in MX- 5 Cup.
For some, the allure of open-wheel
racing is strong, with aspirations of
IndyCar or Formula 1 – and there’s
a place in SCCA Pro Racing for you,
too. The F2000 Championship
Series and F1600 Formula F
Championship Series are a great
fit for Club racers looking to move
up the open-wheel ladder.
