It has hosted races since the 1950s and currently hosts races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, SCCA Pirelli World Challenge, ASRA, AMA Superbike series, and IndyCar Series. Road America is a permanent road course. It is located midway between the cities of Milwaukee and Green Bay. The track is situated on 640 acres (2.6 km2) in Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine and it is located near the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive. It has hosted races since September 1955 and currently hosts over 400 events a year. Road America is one of only a handful of road circuits in the world maintaining its original configuration being 4.048 miles (6.515 km) in length and 14 turns. The track features many elevation changes, along with a long front stretch where speeds approaching 200 mph (320 km/h) may be reached. One of the best known features of this course is a turn on the backside known as "the kink." At the beginning of the Group 6 race in the 2005 Brian Redman International Challenge, there was a large incident consisting of most of the field: The driver starting fifth (Ray Mulacek, 1969 Chevrolet Camaro) accelerated well before the green flag and tried to force his way between the wall and the car in front of him, resulting in contact with the wall. A following car checked up and was rear-ended, causing a spin that led to further contact as following cars were unable to avoid the growing incident. After just a few seconds of green flag racing, the red flag was waved. Following the initial incident, the failure of trailing drivers to heed red flags being shown at 14 and 15 (under the bridge at the crest of the hill) may have compounded the issue. Luckily, nobody was seriously injured, with the worst injury being a broken arm. On August 3, 2006, Cristiano da Matta, driver of Champ Car's RuSPORT team, was involved in a collision with a deer during Champ Car open testing at Road America. The deer ran in front of his car as he was heading towards turn 6. He hit the deer with his right front tire, the deer then flew back and hit da Matta in the cockpit. Da Matta was unconscious when the safety crew extricated him from the car, and was airlifted via Flight for Life to Theda Clark Medical Center south of Appleton, where he underwent surgery to remove a subdural hematoma. Hotlap This week the video is by myself, during season 3 when we had one shot qualifying. (Remember that?) Last time out Le circuit bugatti was the venue for TNGTC's 2nd endurance of the season, but the same names were at the front, with Oz, Gaz, Adam & Liam taking the first 4 slots. the race start was very clean, with a few drivers swapping positions. Gaz had taken the lead off of Oz, and looked to stay there, Liam had jumped Adam, but relinquished the place due to an error on lap 2. Ben brought himself into contention for a good result by trying a 1 stop strategy from the back, which saw him running 4th when the stops had played out, but with older tires and Liam being the far superior driver, he dropped to P5 with 20 minutes left. Jamie and Jeremy had a fight late on, which resulted in Jamie spinning. The race Finished Gaz, Oz*, Adam, Liam & Ben. *Result could change due to Oz being under investigation.
