Terminology

Champcar, a shortened form of "Championship Car," has been the name for a class of cars used in American Championship Car Racing for many decades. A Champ Car is a single seater (commonly called Open-wheel racing refers to a type of motor racing in which the wheels of the cars are not housed inside fenders, as in stock car or touring car racing, but rather out in the open at the end of readily-visible axles and suspension systems. Open-wheel racing includes... open wheel) racing car. For much of their history Champ Cars have been similar to Cars jockey for position during the 2004 Monaco Grand Prix, one of the nineteen annual Formula One races Articles related to Formula One: History of Formula One Formula One regulations Formula One cars Formula One racing Future of Formula One Lists: Constructors | Grands Prix | Circuits Champions | Drivers | Other People Formula... Formula One cars, although there have traditionally been several key differences between the two.

  • Champ Cars have always raced on high speed oval tracks. The increased stress and speed of these tracks mean that the cars tended to be heavier and more sluggish than F1 cars, which race almost exclusively on road courses.
  • Since the late 1960s Champ Cars have used Turbocharger Cut-away A turbocharger is a device used in internal-combustion engines to increase the power output of the engine by increasing the mass of oxygen and fuel entering the engine. A key advantage of turbochargers is that they offer a considerable increase in engine power with only a... turbocharged engines. Turbos were banned in Formula One on safety grounds in 1989.

This is a legacy of a crash at the 1964 Indianapolis 500 in which two drivers were burned to death by a petrol-fuelled fireball.
  • Champ Cars continue to have sculpted undersides to create Ground effect (or Wing In Ground effect) is a phenomenon of aerodynamics where the flow of air around part of an aircraft or a racing car is interrupted by the ground.

Lotus in 1978, and was immediately used on the Chaparral Champ Car in 1979. F1 banned ground effects for safety reasons in 1982.

However, in recent years some of the better-funded Champcar teams such as Newman-Haas (co-owned by actor Paul Newman and chassis importer Carl Haas, with David Letterman owning a small piece) have fielded entries in the Indianapolis 500. In order to do this the team must purchase an IRL spec. car, and often a spare. Champcar teams participating in the Indy 500 often do so at the request of their sponsors, or to curry favour with their drivers. To race in the Indy 500 is an aspiriation that almost every open-wheel driver has.

The split away from USAC in 1979 was spurred by a group of activist car owners who had grown disenchanted with what they saw as an inept sanctioning body.

Formula 1 with his creation of the Formula One Constructors Association. The white paper called for the owners to form CART as an advocacy group to promote USAC's national championship, doing the job where the sanctioning body wouldn't. The group would also work to negotiate television rights and race purses, and ideally hold seats on USAC's governing body.


Gurney, joined by other leading team owners including Roger Penske and Pat Patrick, took their demands to USAC's board and were turned down flat. This rejection turned disenchantment into defiance, and the rebel team owners laid plans to run their own racing series in 1979, competing with the established USAC National Championship - a racing series called CART. The new series quickly gained the support of the vast majority of USAC Champ Car team and track owners, with the only notable holdout being A. J. Foyt (born January 16, 1935) is considered by many as the greatest race car driver of all time. Anthony Joseph Foyt was born on January 16, 1935 in Houston, Texas.

As the morning of March 11, 1979 dawned, the open-wheel landscape had been transformed. The formerly all-powerful USAC was left with a slim, hodge-podge schedule of seven races, while CART could lay claim to the sport's notable drivers and tracks - except Indianapolis. On that day, CART - sanctioned then by the The SCCA could be considered the grass-roots level of auto racing in the United States.

Today, there are still many questions about the future of the series, particularly whether or not it will continue the series' long-running tradition of American road races. In the past two seasons, several traditional circuit venues have been dropped in favor of street courses, which some fans view as counterproductive and damaging to the health of the sport. A dearth of noteworthy, name drivers has also hurt the series in its quest to recapture the popularity it held in the early 1990s.
