  • 2016 CanAm Proxy - Track List

    The following is a list of the tracks that are lined up as of today for the 2016 CanAm proxy.


    We have a total of 11 tracks at this point and will add one more as it becomes available (hopefully in Canada; so that we can keep the numbers somewhat balanced between the US and Canada)


    We will also include pics of each track and a description of it, so that you can use this information to help set-up/tune your cars.


    Here are the tracks, locations and tentative target race dates (all dates are actually ranges and the race may take place either earlier or later than the target date).


    Total time for the 12 races should be about 7 1/2 months, shorter if we can get the races closer to 2 week intervals. We've structured the races so that the transportation will be relatively easy; starting in the US-East, moving to Canada-East, then Canada-West and going from there into US-West and back to US-East. Having 3 races in MA-CT, 2 in MI, 3 in the WA-Canada-West area and 2 in Canada-East, helps a lot with the timing for the races.

      Well, we tried for another track in Canada, but could not work out the schedule. So, the last track will be in Manchester, NH; Amoskeag North Racing Park, starting around August 1, 2016. Thanks to Josh for making his track available for this proxy.


      I'll update the track lists as soon as possible. Right now, I'm having trouble posting messages or editing messages on this board...........not sure why...............

        I'll start working on getting pics and details on each of the tracks now, so that you can plan your builds for surfaces, distances, layout, etc.
