Connecticut Autocross and Rally Team (C.A.R.T.) is your place for autocross and track days. We have autocross events in various facilites in Connecticut, and track days at Thompson Speedway and Pocono Raceway. Don’t just watch, get out and drive!

CART has decided that since our Pocono track day is coming up soon that it would be fun to run a team relay in Hartford after our 7/31 points event. Around 1:30pm we will stop our normal points event and begin setting up for the team relay. Teams will consist of any five drivers and handicaps will be determined from times posted in the points event. Each team member will get one lap of the course followed by the rest of their team. After all drivers have run, the times posted will be added together and the handicap applied. The team with the lowest adjusted time will be the winner. Sounds fun and easy just remember cone penalties and going off course will ruin your chances of winning. Teams will need to be signed up by noon on 7/31 so start building your team now!
Long ago when the temperatures were low and everyone was dreaming of summer and a new autocross season, a meeting was held. At this meeting CART decided that the sheer joy and love we all have for autocross just wasn’t enough anymore.
Therefore some extra dates were added to the schedule. These dates were not only for cancellations, they were added to satisfy our urges to do something new, fun, and different from our standard autocross event. This is where you the autocross connoisseur have the opportunity to change how we do autocross (temporarily of course).
At the upcoming Board of Directors/Competition committee meeting we will be discussing the first of these events. Our question to you is what should we do? We have some great ideas already: traditional gymkhana, team events, rallycross style timing, running the course both forward and backward and averaging the times, stopping at checkpoints during a run where goals need to be accomplished. The point is we can do anything we want. So take a few days and think about what you would do if you could add a little fun into an upcoming event. If you think that you have a good idea email His Bigness at email@example.com with your best idea. Who knows maybe we will even let you name the event style in your memory. I’m sure the Bob style event would make a lot of people happy. Anyhow get your ideas to the email address before next Wednesday’s meeting if you want your idea to be the first one tried at an event in August.
Just a reminder,The Party Starts at 2pm. Everyone needs to bring ICE. If you need the address, contact Bob Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 203.395.8509. Please bring a side dish or dessert.
