Summary

Summary

Following the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART), from its formation in 1979 through to the completion of its 20th season of competition, this history looks at how the new series developed and grew into the entertaining form of racing that makes it so popular today. CART was born out of the dissatisfaction of a group of Championship Car team owners, who unhappy with the way in which the sport was run, set up a rival racing series for single-seater cars of the type raced in the Indianapolis 500.
