USERA Adds New Classes for Carbotech Endurance Championship
DANVILLE, VA. (May 31, 2006) – The United States Endurance Racing Association announced today the addition of two new classes to their Carbotech Endurance Championship series for 2006. The two new classes come at the request of teams and sponsors wanting to be included in the exciting and affordable endurance format offered by USERA.
The first new class will be designated Spec Racer (SR) and will include the SCCA Enterprises Spec Racer Ford. Well known drivers, such as Speed TV announcer Dorsey Schroeder, started their racing career in Spec Racer Fords. The Spec Racer has recently proven itself to be an exceptional vehicle for low cost endurance racing.
The second class being added is designated Touring Car (TC) and will include vehicles meeting SCCA Improved Touring (S, A, B and C) and SCCA Showroom Stock B and C specifications.
Both classes will be recognized immediately and are eligible to enter the next event on the 2006 USERA calendar at the Nashville Superspeedway on July 7-8, 2006. The Nashville race will be a six hour event under the lights at the speedway and should prove exciting for both the teams and spectators.
Founded in 2005, USERA manages the Carbotech Endurance Championship which consists of three hour or longer endurance races culminating with a season ending Driver and Team Champions. Classes include Spec Miata (SM), Mazda MX-5 (X5), Spec Racer (SR) and Touring Car (TC). For more information on USERA, visit: www.usenduro.com
