The inaugural  RAW 2020 Race Series will be structured as below, The NASA CCR’s will be used to administer the series and we are preparing a spec series supplemental rule book.

The series will host two, 2 day series test prior to the start of the season

  • The RAW championship shall include 12 races over Six, 2 day events
  • A 1 day optional practice shall precede each event
  • Championship will be open to both single driver and 2 driver team entries
  • A rebate of $ 4,000 will be payed to any owners entering all events
  • There will be a limit of 1 set of New tires per 2 day event weekend ( 6 sets for the championship )

Owner Arrive and Drive Program – Participants will purchase their own RUSH SR-1 car. The car will be stored at our facilities in Houston, receive a full preparation for the event and shall be transported to and from the event. We will then provide a series “Tent”, paddock spot and a mechanic shared between 3 cars. Drivers and their mechanic will have access to the series set-up pads and tools, series driver coach and data analyst. Each paddock spot will be a 20’ x 20’ spot with 2 tables and chairs. A series hospitality area with refreshment, snacks and a cold cut lunch will also be provided.

This program has been designed to allow drivers the “Fly-in Experience” in a friendly club environment, yet participate in a highly competitive and high-performance series at a fraction of the cost of some of the traditional arrive and drive race programs. Indeed, an owner can purchase their car and participate in the entire championship for less that a single race in one of the other recently launched arrive and drive series!
