Skip Barber’s two Southern Regional Series — the MX-5 Miatas and the F2000 open-wheelers — open October 24-26 at Carolina Motorsports Park.

This is CMP. Further down in the story is a link to an on-board video.

LAKEVILLE, Conn. – The season openers for both 2008-2009 Southern championships – the Skip Barber MAZDASPEED MX-5 Challenge and the Skip Barber F2000 Regional Race Series – are October 24-26 at Carolina Motorsports Park.

For series ”veterans,” we’ve scheduled the usual Lapping Sessions for both cars on Wednesday and Thursday, but on the Monday-Tuesday prior, we’ve also scheduled Advanced Two-Day Schools (MX-5 Miata and F2000) for all drivers looking to make their first Skip Barber ”starts.”

Remember, Three Day Racing School graduates (SBRS and certain others) can be taking their first green flag on Saturday simply by fulfilling their pre-requisites on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Plus, drivers entering their first Skip Barber Race Weekend get a 20% discount (talk to a Series Advisor for details).

CMP is a very cool track to race on – just ask Race Series Coach Grant Maiman, who won two races there in the year that he won the Skip Barber National championship. [Click here for a QuickTime video of on-board laps at CMP] Plus, CMP’s owners recently made a lot of infrastructure improvements.

Carolina Motorsports Park is easy to get to, too: It’s in Kershaw, S.C., just an hour south of Charlotte, N.C.

Don’t miss the two Southern season openers — talk with a School and Series Advisor to sign up. Remember, there’s still time to take advantage of discounts.
