The road race schedule for 2024 is set. Once again Cincinnati Region will host the Todd Cholmondeley ITSpec*tacular Double Regional Race weekend, this year on July 13th and 14th, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Racers will have an opportunity to compete on both the club and the pro course configurations. The divisional races on Saturday and Sunday count for the Divisional Championship and are qualifying races for the run-offs, this year at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI. On-track sessions start at 8am with qualifying, with some racing before the lunch break and continuing throughout the afternoon on Saturday. Wrapping up the on-track activities, scheduling and time permitting, is a one-hour bracket race, where drivers with cars of any class compete against each other, based on the “time bracket” they have posted in their regular class groupings. We’ll wrap it up earlier on Sunday to give racers a chance to load up and start their trek home.
Once again, we are bringing you an exclusive session of ITB, ITC, and B-Spec cars. They are usually grouped with many other classes. This will afford them the opportunity to showcase their cars and their driving skills on their own. It was a great race in 2023 and I’m looking forward to watching this group again in 2024! Hopefully this will be a continuing arrangement, and I expect to see the group getting bigger every year.
On Friday, July 12th, you can take your daily driver, or any other car you can get your hands on, out on course without fear of a speeding ticket. Never done this before? A little apprehensive? We will provide you with a driver coach to help guide you until you are comfortable with running solo. A seasoned veteran? Choose the Advanced Group, which allows you less restrictive passing rules. Have a race prepared car but no competition license? Run on Friday and stay over for a 1-hour bracket race on Saturday afternoon for wheel-to-wheel racing.
Want to participate with a reduced or no entry fee? Come to the Awards/Member Appreciation banquet on February 3rd at Receptions in Fairfield. A free Track Event and $200 discount coupon will be included in the door prizes.
I have been told by countless volunteer workers that this is THE race to come to. We always try to make it as special as possible. We can always use help to support the racers and get you up close and personal with the cars and drivers or get you out on a corner where the action is. We’ll also feed the volunteers lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and dinner on Saturday. In fact, run on Friday in the Track Event and stay to work on Saturday and/or Sunday and earn a $25/day rebate on your entry fee.
Questions? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration will open in the spring.
