Ages 55-65+

Practice Sessions on Fridays and Mondays at 12pm EST

Race sessions on Tuesday open 15 minutes early at 11:45AM EST for 15 minutes of pre-race “fellowship” (no on-track action). Practice starts at 12:00pm. Green Flag at 12:15pm.

MX5-Global 2016 & MX5 2015

Goal: Again, the goal of the new series is to have FUN AND FELLOWSHIP. HAVE FUN AND MAKE FRIENDS! Fun and fair competition for drivers beyond the age that would allow them to serve as a USAF fighter pilot or NASA astronaut, but still young enough to enjoy racing. (Don't forget that Paul Newman sat on the Pole at age 80 at a GT1 (Corvette) SCCA event.)

About Series Details:
the new Racing Series will run as Hosted iRacing events, held once a week at 12:00 Noon Eastern (New York) Time on Tuesdays. (6:00PM Milan Time) We will open the session 15 minutes earlier (11:45) to allow for 15 minutes of "fellowship". This will include a Christian Prayer/Invocation. 10 minute practice will start at 12:00 followed by a two lap qualifying session. Generally the first race will start at 12:15. Most races will be around 15 minutes. Immediately after the end of the first race, another "Second Chance" hosted session will open, eligible for all but the top three finishers in the first race. 10 minute practice, two lap qualifying, and another (second) 15 minute race. Points and prizes will be awarded based on the driver's best finish in either of the two races.

The car will be the Mazda MX5 (2015 and 2016 versions) which is/are included for no extra charge in iRacing membership. Starting in 2020 S1, we will run 12 races in each season---10 road races and 2 oval tracks all on tracks included at no extra charge in iRacing Membership. We will follow the Sim Lab Production Car Challenge except for the 2 oval track races.

Drivers that are age 65 or older will drive the 2016 Global Mazda MX5 in Division 1. Drivers that are in the age range of 55-64 will drive the MX5 Cup -2015 and will be in Division 2. Setups will be open but a "tested baseline" will be shared by the League Organizer (Donald Strout) who will race, but will not earn points, official position, or prize money. Separate championship points standings will be maintained for each Division. The "prize pool" for the first season is $500, donated by the League Organizer. Details for how that will be distributed will be announced at a later date.

To race in this series, you will have to be invited or accepted after applying for membership in the 55/65PLUS FunFellowship League (See iRacing League Directory). As a pre-condition, you will have to be first invited or accepted after applying for membership in the Racing for Jesus Motorsports League and/or a member in good standing in that league.

You do not need to be a born again Christian to race. You simply need to drive as fast as you can while maintaining control, and DO NO HARM TO OTHERS. You also need to control your temper and speech. You should recognize however that "fellowship" for evangelical Christians will include open prayer (for the welfare of others) and praise testimony as well as the sharing of scripture from the Holy Bible. Many league members will be evangelical Christians. All participants shall be required to show respect for this type of fellowship.
