Large open pavement to run on, grass staging area, on site facilities, and of course CART Racing Fun. Come out and race with us and let’s show our new hosts how excited we are to race at The Big E!
Event price: $40 members $50 non-members
CART runs a PAX-grouped classing system, C0 through C6, which has recently been revised/updated based on the current 2019 SCCA PAX index.
As a result, several classes have moved around. There is a good chance you'll be in a different class than last year, please check!!
In order to select the appropriate CART class, you will need to know your SCCA Solo class:

Although not listed at the link above, the three open/Pro classes (PRO S, PRO R, PRO G) are still available as well and have not changed. Please see our website for more details on these three classes.
- C.A.R.T. maintains a good neighbor policy: any competitor or crew found driving in the pits or on the street in an unsafe manner will be ejected, and forfeit any fees paid. Vehicles that are judged to be too loud will receive one warning to correct the problem before they will not be allowed to run. Drivers exhibiting unsafe driving skills on or off the property will be banned from events.
- Registration closes promptly at 9:30 a.m. Any entry after that time cannot be accepted.
- Any car (street legal or race) may compete. No trucks, SUV’s motorcycles or shifter carts can compete.
- Cars are classed per SCCA rules and then separated into our own CART classes. (Stock cars are allowed any tire / wheel combination that is contained within the wheel well. A minimum tire treadware rating of 140 is required )
