At A Glance: NOLA Hoosier Super Tour

Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA® Super Tour
March 4-5:
NOLA Motorsports Park -- Avondale, Louisiana

Storylines/Things to Watch:
Back to the Track – It’s been more than a month since the very first Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA® Super Tour event was held January 13-15 at the historic Sebring International Raceway. The premier U.S. amateur road racing series is now back in action March 4-5 at the 16-turn, 2.75-mile NOLA Motorsports Park just southwest of New Orleans in Louisiana. This will be the second of 11 race weekends that make up the 2017 Hoosier SCCA Super Tour.

A Texas Invasion -- Of the more than 220 entries for this weekend’s Hoosier Super Tour at NOLA Motorsports Park, almost a third are coming from Texas for the event hosted by the SCCA’s Houston Region. Florida, too, has a strong contingent planning to compete. There are even drivers that have travelled from as far away as Washington, Minnesota and Massachusetts.

The Joint will be Jumpin’ -- With six groups scheduled for racing Saturday and Sunday, there will be no shortage of exciting on-track sports car action at NOLA Motorsports Park for this second stop of the Hoosier SCCA Super Tour. Also going on this weekend on the kart track at the venue will be the Superkarts! USA inaugural running of the Pro Tour WinterNationals. It’s a great opportunity get a glimpse at some future SCCA competitors!

What Weather? – The forecast for New Orleans this weekend shows temperatures in the 70s with only a slight chance of rain. However, this is Southern Louisiana. It’s certainly not uncommon for that forecast to change on a dime, so everyone in attendance should be prepared for a little water from the sky, which also means some H2O buildup around toes. Boots and raincoats might be wise to have on hand.
