2011 NASA Midwest 944-Spec Schedule

Posted: December 14, 2010 in Miscellaneous, Racing

It’s the winter and most would assume racers take a break, but as often the case we wind up getting work done to our cars (by ourselves or at trusted shops), planning family vacations around our racing schedule, saving up money for entry fees, and plenty of kissing up to the wive’s / significant others / kids.  Below is the 2011 NASA Midwest schedule (it should soon be finalized as the Enduros are already set).

Tracks:

Autobahn County Club – Joliet, IL

Autobahn CC consists of one large track with the option to split the track into two so seperate events run. With Autobahn the Friday evening enduro is usually run on the full course and the racing weekend runs solely on the south course.


Putnam Park Road Course – Meridian, IN

Putnam Park was a course originally built to test Daiso racecars (small tube frame built single seater closed cockpit racers with motorcycle and sequential gearboxes).

Brainerd International Raceway – Brainerd, MN

Brainerd is a fast flowing track with some of the highest speed turn 1 / 2 complexes in North America.

Gingerman Raceway – South Haven, MI

Gingerman is a very technical track with lots of flowing corners.

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course – Lexington, OH

Mid-Ohio is great fast flowing course with a lot of technical sections. They once again host NASA's National Championships again (last several years it was at Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City, Utah).

Road America – Elkhart Lake, WI

Road America is one of the fastest tracks in North America. It is one of the few tracks where 944s actually need to use 5th gear extensively.
