There are some new safety requirements that we are implementing effective immediately. Some of these requirements are related to changes in our insurance and some of them are things that have been discussed, at length, in the Board of Directors and the Membership Meetings.
1) Kid Karts
Kid Kart parents and coaches are not allowed on the track during races or controlled practice. The Race Director and Corner Worker staff will grid up the kid karts and get them started. Corner workers will assist kid kart drivers as necessary when it is safe to do so.
2) "Open Practice" on Race Days
The track will remain closed for all karts until controlled practice starts. Controlled practice will start approximately three (3) hours prior to the start of the race (10am for day races), as long as there is enough staff to fill all 5 corner worker positions. Times and classes for controlled practice will be announced on race day.
The gatehouse will be open five (5) hours before the start of the race (8am for day races) to pick up armbands, rent transponders and get fuel and tires.
4) Wristbands & Transponders Required to Enter Track
The grid steward and the race director will be checking armbands and ensuring transponders are on karts. Any driver without an armband and a transponder on their kart will not be allowed on the track for controlled practice.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue to strive for safety for our drivers and the improvement of our club!
