    The 2019 local race season, here in the greater Portland area, will see some changes moving forward into the up coming season. The Pats Acres Racing Complex Series, or P.A.R.C. Series, is going to re-focus on building a local grassroots karting series, that has a focused class structure with fewer, but larger and more competitive classes. The 2019 P.A.R.C. Series schedule will include 5 weekend day races, 3 of which will be night races, and 5 Thursday evening races, for a total of 10 races in the Series. The classes that will run all 10 rounds is limited to the full range of LO206 and the new 100cc classes (see below for details). The TAG, shifters and World Formula classes will be offered on the weekend race dates only (5 rounds). The goal of the P.A.R.C. Series is to concentrate and grow the competition locally, in the classes that draw the most entries and appeal to the most competitors. The O2S will be joining for a few events again in 2019, with a focus on getting all the shifter and TAG drivers to show up for the same events. Plans for the 2019 P.A.R.C. Series include drawings and product giveaways, some brief instructional sessions regarding multiple aspects of racing, multiple track layouts (backwards anyone?), restructured race day awards, and a year end awards programs.  

Below are the class structures we will offer for the 2019 season.
