Year two! We are going back to The Genesee Valley Kart track in Avon.
RESTRICTIONS on entries
No V8 motors allowed- track requirement
Street mufflers- no open exhausts. Sound enforcement will be by the arbitrary and unscientific decision of the event organizers. If you have doubts about your cars exhaust noise it may be too loud.
Avon is a go-kart track that features turns with varying amounts of banking and curbing. It provides a more interactive experience than the typical autocross in a parking lot. We still use cones to keep cars on course but not very many since the rule is that if two wheels go off the pavement then the car is “off course” and the run doesn’t count. Drop four wheels off and we may ask you to go home.

Car numbers from MotorsportReg.com will be honored whenever possible. Numbers can be applied with shoe polish or painters tape (usually available at the registration desk) if you don't have vinyl or magnetic numbers.
Car Tech Review
A technical review will be performed on each car. We use a "roving tech" system, so cars will be checked in the paddock area. Items that are checked during tech include:
- All loose objects removed from car interior and trunk, including driver floor mat
- Rapid Throttle return
- Battery secure
- Firm Brake Pedal
- No play in Wheel bearings
- Adequate tire tread (no cord showing)
- Helmet within one generation of current Snell rating. Must have hologram with SA or M 2005 or newer. Loaner helmets are available to drivers that don't have a Snell-certified helmet.
