TENTATIVE SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED FOR 2007
November 22, 2006
Following the successful inaugural campaign in 2006, the F2000 Championship Series has announced a tentative six weekend-12 race series
Starting in March with Round 1 at the Road Atlanta circuit for the Series initial appearance at the North Georgia circuit, the series features one double race weekend per month for six months.
The series will then follow the spring weather north with Round 2 at Virginia International Raceway in April. VIR was the site of the first ever F2000 Championship Series event also in April of 2006
The Series will next visit Summit Point Raceway in May for Round 3 at the West Virginia track which hosted the second ever F2000 Championship Series event in 2006.
June will see the Series joining the Grand Am Rolex Sports Car series at Watkins Glen on the traditional 6 Hour race weekend. With Watkins Glen being almost every driverís favorite track, this weekend is sure to be a standout for all competitors as well as the always substantial spectator turnout.
In July the Series returns to the Mid Ohio Sportscar Course for a repeat engagement at one of the Nationís finest facilities.
The finale is scheduled for Connecticutís Lime Rock Park on the newly dated NASCAR Busch East date in August to wind up the season.
With final rules and specifications to be announced soon, as well as new commercial relationships and sponsorships, the series looks forward to entering the second season with Hankook Tires returning as the Official Tire and sole supplier for the F2000 Championship Series.
