Tuesday, February 08, 2005 Over the 30 years that we’ve held our racing series, we learned that there are lots of very good race car drivers who do not have hard-core professional aspirations — in other words, they’re not trying to get themselves into an IRL, Champ Car or F1 seat as a career — but still want the experience of true professional competition at great tracks that hold pro races.
That’s why we have the Skip Barber Masters National Championship: Professional rules and regulations. Racing with your peers. Superb race tracks. You are eligible to enter the Masters National if you’ve turned 40 before the first race of the season.
It’s a great series, with very good drivers, and a truly unique atmosphere and sense of camaraderie.
Please feel free to call one of our four Series Advisors, who can tell you all you need to know to enter one or all of the 2005 Skip Barber Masters National Championship race weekends: Contact Steve Kunsey, Bob Nisbet, Jim Altemus or Chris Kretzmer. They can be reached at 800.221.1131 or 860.435.1300.
Following is the 2005 schedule — remember, it’s two races each Race Weekend, each with its own qualifying session — plus a special pre-pay discount offer (see the details below).
We hope to see you soon at an upcoming Skip Barber Masters National Championship.
