Atlantic Championship releases 2010 schedule

The Atlantic Championship released their 2010 schedule late yesterday.  The current calendar contains a 12-race schedule, but leaves room for the addition of one more event.  It’s disappointing to see another Atlantic schedule without a Road America stop planned, but at least the possibility is there.

When I asked an Atlantic representative about the return of Road America, I received the following response:

It’s possible.  Stay tuned…

I’m unfortunately not at liberty to share any possible additions to the schedule right now.

The comments don’t mean much at this point, except that a stop at just about any venue is possible.

There is also a rumor floating around that the Atlantic Championship is hoping to lock down a support role at a Canadian F1 race— should F1 return to Montreal in 2010.

As noted above, I guess we will all have to stay tuned.  For now, here is your 12-race 2010 Atlantic Championship schedule….

    Should have asked them , if they plan to pay out last years winners monies to the drivers and teams. It would interesting see what their remarks would be about that.

    Hi Chuck. Thanks for the comment. As you know this is a touchy situation and one that needs to be addressed.

    I actually did have a conversation with Atlantic officials regarding the prize situation. They have assured me that they are working on a “statement” to clarify the situation. Should they not follow through on that promise, I will post what I know.

    In the meantime, it’s important to stay positive. Everyone involved in this situation wants the best for the Atlantic Championship, the drivers, and the teams.
