The 2017 Season is in the Record Book!


The 2017 Monoposto Racing Season was completed in November at the SVRA COTA event.  It was quite a season.  You can find all the results, as usual, at Monoposto.com thanks to the efforts of Travis Engen, our Chief of Scoring and Webmaster.


Congratulations are in order for all of our 2017 class champions.  Photos of them are above.  Test your car knowledge to identify them. They are:


            Josh Boller – Formula Atlantic
            Bobby Brown – F70 Formula 2
            Marty Bullock – Formula Junior
            Bob Burnside – Formula B
            Seb Coppola – Formula 5000
            Bill Demarest – Historic Formula Ford
            Jacques Dresang - Club Formula Ford
            Travis Engen – Indy Lights

We will be getting the trophies for the champions made over the winter and will be presenting them at Monoposto events during the next season.

Please note that we have ou first non-North American Champion.  Our Formula Junior champion, Marty Bullock, hails from Perth, Australia.  Now that is a long tow!

While the 2017 season is fresh in your mind, please give some thought to the 2018 schedule.  We will be putting the schedule together over the next month or so and inputs are always welcome.  Our intent is to keep roughly the same number of events, but we are open to changing out some if there is sufficient interest expressed.  We can’t promise to accommodate every wish, but we will try to do what we believe most of the members want based on inputs and past participation.

I would also like to take a few moments to thank those of you who volunteered to host a party at one of the events.  I am a firm believer in the notion that it is more fun and safer to race with friends than with strangers and the parties are a big part of making friendships.  If you would like to host an event next year, please just reply to this email.  It isn’t that hard or expensive and I can always get help for first timers.

Hopefully you have already generated a shop list of things to do to your car over the winter to make it safer, more reliable, faster or just plain run again.  If not, I suggest you make the list soon before some of those things fall through the cracks, only to rear their heads when you roll the car out of the trailer at the first event!

Enjoy the holidays.
