Fastest Longest Autocross in Connecticut!!!

That’s right CART has done it again. In an effort to keep expanding the scope of our autocross program we will be utilizing a portion of the Thompson road course for our final event of the year. The plans for CART’s year end two day autocross extravaganza are shaping up as follows:

10/29/16
8:00am-early afternoon: CART points event #13 (Final points event of the year)
end of points event-4:00pm: Cart Autocross Driver of the Year run-off
6:00-7:30pm CART End of Year Picnic at Thompson Clubhouse
10/30/16
8:00am-4:00pm: Cart autocross including a portion run on the Thompson road course

The biggest news for the weekend is that thanks to Thompson speedway motorsports park and a pair of Bob’s(Doiron and Johnson) we will be utilizing a large portion of Thompson’s road course for our final event of the year on Sunday October 30th. The layout we will using be the fastest and longest autocross course in Connecticut! This event will be a test for what will hopefully be the how we run at Thompson Speedway when available in the future. The cost for this event will be $55(Members)/$60(Non-Members) and you will be sure to get your money’s worth.

That does not mean that we will not have an exciting day on Saturday October 29th. Saturday will be your last chance to get those points you need to win your class for the year. It will also be the last chance to get into the top twelve in autocross points(best of 9) to participate in this years autocross driver of the year run-off. This event will give the drivers involved two chances to run on an adjusted version of the days course. The best times from the runs will then be adjusted using a CART performance factor adjustment and an autocross driver of the year will be crowned. The cost for this event will be the normal rate of $40(non-member)/$35(member), however if you are planning on attending both of the weekends events there will be a discount available if you pay for both days on Saturday. The discounted rates will be $90(not member)/$80(member) a great price for two days of autocross fun including the first autocross course on the Thompson road course.

Following our final points event on Saturday we will be heading up to the Thompson Clubhouse for an end of the year picnic. The cost for this picnic will be $10 per person and children under 13 are free. If you are planning on attending please RSVP to Bob Doiron (mcguiver3@sbcglobal.net) before October 24th. CART is extreamly excited that we could set up such an awesome weekend to celebrate another great year of autocross and track days. We hope to see you all there for what is sure to be the most exciting two days of autocross all year long.
