The 2018 Monoposto Race Series Schedule is Set!


Fellow racers,

First of all, a somewhat belated “Happy New Year” to all!  I hope you all had a great holiday season and are ready to begin planning your 2018 season.  We have set the Monoposto Race Series schedule for this year.  It is identical to last year’s, with the exception that the SVRA Open Wheel Challenge at Indy has been replaced with the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational at Indy.  Here is the complete schedule with dates:

  • Spring Vintage Festival at Road America (SVRA) – May 17-20, 2018
  • Vintage Grand Prix at Mosport (VARAC) – June 14-17, 2018
  • Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational (SVRA) – June 14-17, 2018
  • Sommet des Légendes at Mont Tremblant (HMSA & HSR) – July 12–15, 2018
  • WeatherTech International Challenge at Road America (Road America)– July 19-22, 2018
  • Vintage GP au Grattan (VSCDA) – August 17-19, 2018
  • US Vintage GP at Watkins Glen (SVRA) – September 6-9, 2018
  • Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival at Road America (VSCDA) – September 14-16, 2018
  • Heacock Classic Gold Cup at VIR (SVRA) – September 20-23, 2018
  • US Vintage National Championship at COTA (SVRA) – November 1-4, 2018

You will note that, as has occurred in the past, Indy and Mosport are the same weekend.


The Indy Lights Championship schedule largely overlaps the full Monoposto schedule except it adds an event at Road Atlanta while dropping several others.  The full Indy Lights schedule may be found at www.indylightsracing.com. Championships in all classes will be based on a racer's best 10 races (five events.)


As I have in the past, I appeal to our US members visit one of our Canadian events.  The two venues are truly world class and WAY at the top of my personal favorite tracks.  The events both offer loads of track time at famous tracks with truly engaged fans.  It isn’t really very hard to cross the border and your dollar goes quite far in Canada.  To take that last point one step further, VARAC is offering a discount of C$100 for entries in their Monoposto class grid.  (Here is a link to a flyer detailing the event and that offer.  The main VARAC web site about the event is found here.)  I personally went to both of our Canadian races last year, had a great time, and intend to go to both again this year.


If you know you are going to an event and would like to host the party, please let me know.  Some munchies, drinks and a paddock to tell stories in is all it takes.  We plan to have a party at each event to help everybody hook up with existing friends and to make new ones. Through the year we will be presenting trophies to the 2017 Monoposto Champions pictured above.


If you have any suggestions or feedback, please feel free to email me or any of the other directors.


Have fun and race safely,
