Champ Car World Series (CCWS) - Defunct 2008

Champ Car World Series (CCWS) - Contact Information

The Champ Car World Series has merged operations with the Indy Racing League (IRL) under the Indy Car Series name effective for the 2008 season. The series will use IRL equipment. The owners of the Champ Car World Series filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 5, 2008. The league was formed in 2004 after team owners Kevin Kalkhoven, Paul Gentilozzi and Gerald Forsythe bought the assets of Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) after it had filed bankruptcy. Part of the merger agreement was one Champ Car race to be run at Long Beach in 2008. This page is left for reference only.

Champ Car World Series (CCWS) - Series History

Champ Car World Series (CCWS) - Series History



The current Champ Car World Series (CCWS) was originally the Championship Auto Racing Teams - CART which started operations in 1979. It had been known as the CART PPG IndyCar World Series, the CART FedEx Championship Series, and, in the organization's final year, (2003) the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered By Ford.

Afetr the 2003 season CART's shares had plummeted and it declared bankruptcy. The assets of CART were to be liquidated. Tony George (IRL) made a bid for certain assets of the company, while a trio of CART owners (Gerald Forsythe, Paul Gentilozzi, and Kevin Kalkhoven), along with Dan Pettit, calling their group the Open Wheel Racing Series (OWRS), also made a bid. The bankruptcy judge ruled that the OWRS group should be the purchaser of the CART assets.

CART/Champ Car World Series Car Specifications

Beginning in 2003 the series began to promote itself as Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford. Under the new owners the series name was retained until the end of the 2006 season when Ford removed it's sponsorship. In 2007, with the withdrawal of Bridgestone and Ford Motor Company as presenting sponsors, the official name of the top-tier series promoted by Champ Car became simply the Champ Car World Series.
