WERC Round 3: May 20, Thunderhill Raceway

Recommended Posts

The Western Endurance Racing Championship Series heads to Thunderhill Raceway Park in less than two weeks. With 36 cars competing in Round 2 at Buttonwillow last month, the WERC Series is off to a great start this year!


In just two endurance races, 49 individual race teams have already competed in the WERC this season. At that pace, the Series is poised to break the record 89 teams that competed in 2011. With representation from virtually every racing class in NASA, and from other sanctioning bodies, it seems racers have discovered the thrill and value of endurance racing. Thanks to the professionalism of our drivers, the WERC has earned a reputation of clean, close and extremely competitive racing.


If you're new to enduros, or are not sure if this type of racing is for you, we invite you to check out the WERC at the next race....We'll be the ones out there getting four hours of seat time, and our race teams will be performing flawless pitstops with refueling and driver changes......We'll also be the ones out there on track having fun with the greatest group of drivers around!! See you at the track! Karen

I'm a dumb rookie looking for track time, so I'm signed up in E3 with a PTE car. Can't wait! Another new team on the WERC charts. Hoping I enjoy it and run many more!

Welcome to the WERC! I think you'll find the enduro group amazingly competitive and a whole lot of fun. I'll be at the track on both days, and would be glad to stop by and answer any questions you might have...Let me know what you're driving, and I'll look you up. See you at the track!

Thanks! I'll be in the faded red #4 PTE/E3 Miata. I'm meeting up with Tony and Joe from TC Design on Friday (TMR) and they're giving me a hand with fueling Sunday morning. Looking forward to next weekend. Bought some radios and a cool shirt set up in preparation!
