Back-to-back trips to Musselman Honda Circuit to open the winter west coast series
NAMPA, ID (December 8, 2023) – The 2024 Challenge of the Americas is just two months from opening at the Musselman Honda Circuit. The schedule for the 17th season of the winter west coast series has been adjusted for the second stop on the calendar. Issues surrounding the official opening of the K1 Circuit in Winchester, California have forced series officials to move the March 1-3 event to the same Tucson, Arizona facility that will host the season opener.
“This was something we had planned for since forming the 2024 schedule,” stated Andy Seesemann from Challenge of the Americas. “We understand the situation surrounding K1 Circuit and hoped for a change in the positive direction for them to open up prior to our date in March. At this time, we cannot guarantee everything will be in place by then, and thus we have come to the decision to move the event from K1 to Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson. This is to allow our teams and competitors the allotted time to schedule and book travel plans in a timely manner, including our staff and other logistical needs for each race weekend.”
The opening event for the 2024 Challenge of the Americas is scheduled for February 2-4 at the Musselman Honda Circuit, contesting the 3/4-mile circuit in the clockwise direction for the first time in series history. The second event on March 1-3 will be held in the normal counterclockwise direction for championship rounds three and four.
“The ability to run Tucson in either direction gives us the opportunity to present two different courses at the same location,” added Seesemann. “The staff at Musselman Honda Circuit have been very accommodating to us over the years and especially toward our 2024 season. We’ve enjoyed the Tucson region each time we’ve visited, and the circuit produces some of the best racing anywhere in North America. It will be an exciting opening two weekends for the 2024 Challenge.”
