Welcome to the Avion RS1 Challenge Series - a platform designed for racers who want to compete with a high-level car but on a budget that won't break the bank. Don't let financial obstacles get in the way of your passion for racing.
We have developed both a car and a series that addresses this issue. Highly competitive, high quality car and competition, economics and parity between all cars was the priority. We have developed a racing series that pits equally constructed and prepared cars against one another. A series where the driver makes all of the difference, not your wallet. Avion Motorsports retains possession of every car, regardless of ownership, and prepares them to exacting standards. No need for teams of tech officials to travel to every event driving costs up. No need for drivers to fund individual crews, transport equipment and travel costs further driving costs. It is all done under one roof, the driver simply arrives and drives.

Revved Up Finances 101: Here's how it works - when a driver joins the Avion team, they'll start by purchasing a brand-new car for the upcoming 2023 season. The cost of the turn-key car is set at $130,000 CAN plus tax. From there, the Avion team takes care of everything else, including storing and transporting the car, providing a crew for maintenance, and paying for venue fees. But of course, all of these costs are then passed on to the owner at a fixed rate which is available for all to see. It's important to note that any damages resulting from crashes or non-standard maintenance must be paid for separately at an hourly rate determined in a signed work order. So, buckle up, and get ready to join the team!
The Avion RS1 Challenge Series is getting more popular in Canada because it's a smart financial decision for drivers/owners. To run the six scheduled races, you only need to budget $27,000 per year, not including additional test days. For any damage to the car or vinyl, you should plan for an extra $15,000 annually. In total, you should plan a budget of $42,000 for twelve races over six weekends. Compared to other racing series, this budget is a steal. That's why the Avion RS1 Cup Series is quickly becoming the go-to option for drivers/owners.
For those without a budget to purchase a car we offer a rental program. A driver on a rental program should budget $40,000/yr. to run the six scheduled events plus an additional $15,000/yr. for crash damage/vinyl repairs for a total budget of $65,000. This budget does not include any additional test days.
Avion can also facilitate the sale of a pre-owned RS1, as well, to help achieve budgetary goals. Because all cars have been constructed identically, there’s no chance that a car will not be current or missing updates.
* Budgets are important factors to consider when making a big purchase, especially when it comes to high-end race cars like the Avion RS1. To make sure you have a clear understanding of the costs associated with its ownership, the experts at Avion are happy to guide you through the expected expenses, including depreciation. Plus, with the RS1's impressive reputation for holding its value, you can rest assured that it's a solid investment for the long run. And if you're worried about unexpected costs popping up, don't fret - Avion offers an easy-to-understand cost structure that will be included in your contract, so there won't be any surprises down the road.
GENERAL RACE FORMAT
The Avion Motorsports RS1 Challenge Series competes on both Oval and Road Course configurations. The RS1 was designed and constructed to be superb on both types of tracks. On the road course at Area 27 we run a format that includes a morning warm up, a qualifying session then two separate 8 lap races. On the oval we run a series of test sessions, then a two-lap single car qualifying to establish the starting order, then two 100 lap feature events. For cost control, in all events, every car is approved to start the day with new Goodyear racing slicks and no new replacement tires are allowed. Drivers can elect to run on good used tires to keep costs to a minimum. In the event of a damaged tire, a good used tire will be supplied as a replacement. All fuel loads and cool box weights are equalized.
