Silencers are Required at F1 Outdoors:
Unfortunately, East Bridgewater has imposed strict noise restrictions on the track, so strict that our 2-Cycle Yamaha classes are excluded from running there (we’ll miss you guys!) All other karts must be equipped with the correct intake and exhaust silencers. If you are not 100% sure that your kart has these, we strongly recommended that you contact your kart shop or CRG America at 781.843.0100. Also, no running engines before 9am Saturday or 10am Sunday (except Kid Kart, Comer Cadet, Micro and Mini.) To be sure we get to race this great track for years to come, these rules are enforced without exception.
POINTS: Exactly as we do at NHMS, you will earn points for your finishing position in the final race against all competitors in your class.
GEARING: Whatever gear you run on the Hill Course is an excellent starting point.
OFFICIATING: This is F1’s show, but NHKA officials will be on hand to assist and answer questions.
PIT PASSES: Payable to F1 at the shed on private access road as you enter.
REGISTRATION: Pay for you races and practices at the main building near the Fountain Turn.
CAMPING: Camping is not allowed at F1, however, you may leave your trailer overnight Friday’s and Saturdays.
