NEGT Cup Events


real  clean  racing | The Northeast GT Cup is strictly no-contact, intended to create a series for racers looking for a clean race.  Drivers need either a competition license or must have actual wheel-to-wheel experience, otherwise we offer the GT Race School to help drivers new, or returning to, wheel-to-wheel have a clean first race.

Single Class Racing: Competition Weight (in pounds) = Engine Displacement (in CCs)

To best match the tracks in our region, which are typically twisty, hilly, blind, technical, and/or otherwise tricky, Northeast GT Cup offers a single, production-car based class. 

All Northeast GT Cup vehicles must be prepared for wheel-to-wheel racing, run a street tire (200tw or higher), and must achieve a minimum engine displacement to weight ratio of 1 pound per cubic centimeter of engine displacement, or 1,000 pounds per liter (example: production vehicle with a 3 liter engine would need to weigh at least 3,000lb). To balance out forced induction, turbocharged engines receive a 1.75x multiplier, supercharged engines receive a 1.5x multiplier.  Remaining Modifiers are based on vehicle attributes such as aero, drivetrain layout, vehicle age, etc.  

Expected vehicles include many reasonably priced ($15,000 – $40,000) club racing builds such as: 3-series BMW, FRS/BRZ/86, 2.5/2.7L Boxster/Cayman, MX-5, s2000, k-swap FWD, RX-7, NSX, and e30 M3 (well, maybe a little more $ for the last couple examples, but they could be competitive!)

2 races per weekend, 2 hours per race, 2 stops each  | Teams of 1, 2, or 3 drivers compete across a weekend filled with wheel-to-wheel track time.  Drivers can expect up to 2 hours on open timed practice/early qualifying days and up to 3 hours of track time, including the 2 hour race, on race days.

6 round championship | The Northeast GT Cup (GTC) is a 6 round, 12 race, points-based driver and team championship.  Best 7 individual races count (up to 5 drops).
