Historically, CART (Championship Auto Racing Teams) is known for its diversity and stiff competition. Its drivers are some of the best open wheel drivers in the world, representing numerous countries. Its venues are diverse beyond belief, encompassing everything from short ovals to super speedways, from temporary street circuits to permanent road courses. In order to compete in Champ Car venues, drivers must have the skills, fortitude, and determination necessary to tackle the challenges dictated by different courses. In short, CART is much, much more than just driving around on an oval.
This season promises to be one of the best yet! Not only do we have seasoned veteran drivers, but we also have a new field of highly competitive and talented rookies.
So, now what about the rookies? Without doubt, there's going to be a lot of competition in CART races! It is mind-boggling to note how talented and skillful these rookies are. Be sure that the rookie crop in CART this year will challenge each and every one of the best and mighty veterans!
With new car owners such as a two-time winner of both the Formula One championship and Indianapolis 500 and a former CART champion, financier, and a former F1 and CART front-runner and winner of the Le Mans 24 Hour sport car classic, CART is experiencing a great deal of growth. Although the field is dominated by the Lola chassis, the few Reynards in contention will prove to be strong competitors. CART's schedule for this year is also fantastic, from places around the world to historic venues in America, it's here and ready for you, the fan. This year, the races held under the lights should be simply awesome!
