 Interested in MoHud Solo 2 events?

What the heck is the Ice Trials? The Ice Trials has been held as a part of the Pittsfield Winter Carnival (this is the 56th year!) since the 1950's. TR-3's and MGA's were seen at this event in days of old. The Berkshire Motor Sports Club (now inactive with longtime members Peter Nixon, Eric Weiss, Dave Hathaway, several others and myself assimilated into the SCCA) was the car club involved till the late 1980's. More historical trivia will be added to this site later.

Sanctioned by the Mohawk Hudson Region of the Sports Car Club of America as a Rally Cross.

A Rally Cross is a Solo 2 that's not on a paved surface. Want more? Download the rules below.

Where? On the frozen (12" minimum) surface of ONOTA LAKE, in PITTSFIELD Massachusetts. I'd call that an unpaved surface!

To be held on Onota Lake at the end of Lakeway Drive in Pittsfield Massachusetts. Registration & Headquarters at the Controy Pavilion on Lakeway Drive. The pavilion has been remodeled in October 2000. It has new windows, insulation and heat for your enjoyment. Since the woodstove has been removed, I sure hope the heating system can keep up!

Please note that the Lakeway Drive inhabitants have commented that we drive faster than we should on their normally dead-end street. Please drive very, very slowly when coming to and leaving the Pavilion. This is a community-supported event and we don't want to loose that support!
