John Dagys just posted an article on his new website, sportscar365.net detailing what he believes to be the final USCR schedule. Not wasting anybody's time, it looks as though the horrifically awful Kansas roval may NOT be included. It seems that ALMS has an existing contract with VIR which is keeping it on the new series' schedule in 2014. Dagys also says that Long Beach will be a GT-only race and Detroit would be a prototype-only race, possibly the week of the Le Mans test day. This means that Corvette and Viper won't miss a USCR race date because they decided to compete in the greatest sportscar race in the world. However, it might also mean that prototype teams like Level 5 or ESM couldn't make the trip to France if they want to stay in the USCR championship hunt.
From the article:
January 25-26 – Rolex 24 at Daytona (NAEC)
March 15 – Twelve Hours of Sebring (NAEC)
April 12 – Long Beach (GT Only)
May - Indianapolis Motor Speedway
May 31 – Detroit (Prototype Only)
June/July – Six Hours of The Glen (NAEC)
August – Road America
September – Circuit of The Americas
October – Petit Le Mans (NAEC)
That leaves one spot for the Baltimore street circuit, Mosport (Canadian Tire Motosports Park) or the Kansas roval. There have been reports for weeks that Mosport has signed a contract for the new series, so it seems as though CTMP is the best bet. Those of you that liked Baltimore, don't fret. You can still watch the IndyCars crash there.
