The new World Racing League launches its inaugural season in 2014, bringing a new generation of endurance racing to tracks across the US. With four classes based on power to weight ratio and a 16-page rule book, WRL promises to keep racing simple, affordable and competitive. WRL is open to all racers currently competing in other series, and drivers with HPDE and Time Trial experience qualify for a WRL license. The series is also open to novices; Those new to wheel-to- wheel racing may apply for a license under a simple, structured licensing program.

Race formats vary from twin 8-hour enduros to full 24-hour races, in a relaxed environment that places an emphasis on camaraderie, competitiveness and fun. WRL founder Joey Todd is a racer and instructor as well as a regional director of a crapcan racing series. “You don’t need to impose budgets to keep racing inexpensive,” he says. “We’re taking all that’s right about contemporary auto sports and packing it into one racing series. Power-to-weight based classes means that you start the race on a level playing field no matter what car you choose to campaign. A skinny rule book is straightforward and easy to digest, and makes entry into the series less intimidating for novices.”

World Racing League opens its season on March 22 with twin 8-hour enduros at MSR Houston and will host a total of 7 events from coast to coast in 2014. See the full schedule at
