    Joe is a welcome addition to CCR. His vast experience is going to take CCR to the next level. I am sure that John/Yulia and all of the CCR drivers are excited to have him as part of "La Famiglia CCR"

    One notable and welcome change to the 2016 schedule is the addition of a Friday test day for every race except Sebring. The format for Sebring will be 8hrs of open track Sat and Sun with David Murry Track days who runs a fantastic event for advance drivers only. Edge Addicts will host the Friday test day at COTA.

    The additional seat time should add another level of safety to the series as drivers should be "dialed in" when it comes to race time.

    Can wait for the season to start!!

    We are all thrilled to have you Joe. You've really hit the ground running. I'm excited to dust my helmet off and head to the grid.

    And a huge thank you to Micheal C, who has heloved Joe put together the best calendar we've had in 8 years. Really looking forward to the developments.

    For those of you who don't know of Joe Foster, his Motorsports pedigree is superb. He is also a great resource, instructor and mentor of the highest order!

    A trained engineer (Masters in Mechanical Engineering, GA Tech), his competition success in professional racing as Grand Am Koni Series co-Champion with Scott Maxwell of Multimatic and principal at Dempsey Racing, including racing at the 24 Hours du Mans and his team building (literally and figuratively) stands on its own and CCR will be FAR better for it.

    I met Joe as the Track Chair for the 1999 Annual Meet at Road Atlanta, where he was the decade-long head of the Panoz School and Race Series.

    Congrats, Joe! Great choice to kick it up!

    Will there be a Track Event for non-race cars (DE) during the COTA CCR like they did a year or two ago? I remember in 2015 there was no DE only Challenge Racers.

    Unfortunately, there will not be a DE event at COTA 2016. CCR had partnered with Edge Addicts last year who ran a DE event on the Friday before the race weekend. This year the track time is divided up between 4 different race groups over the weekend. COTA is just brutally expensive without lots of partners.
