Designed for our fastest and most experienced drivers, by invitation from CLUB100.
Each round will consist of 5 race heats of 7 minutes duration, a B Final and an A Final of 12 minutes duration. Each driver will compete in 3 of the 5 heats and a minimum of 1 final. There are 11 rounds, with each driver’s best 9 points scoring finals counting towards the championship.

The maximum entry is 40 drivers.

Weight limits

The Elite Sprint Championships’ minimum weight limit is 85kg. Any drivers weighing in below 85kg will have to ensure that they make this legal weight limit. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure they check their weight at each race using the CLUB100 scales. The recommended way of achieving the limit is weight fitted to a seat insert or attached to the two weight posts situated by the seat on the Karts. To determine a driver’s weight limit, each driver should include their full kit i.e. Crash Helmets, Overalls, Boots and seat Inserts (we do not include the number plate and transponder). Random checks will be made at each event during the season. Any driver found to be lighter than the required weight will be excluded from that race.

Practice

Practice is 5 laps and is generally used by drivers to familiarise with the circuit and give the kart a shake down. At the end of practice the chequered flag is shown signifying the end of practice and the start of rolling formation laps to form up the two-by-two grid for each drivers first heat.

Race heats

After Practice (which precedes each drivers first heat), Elite drivers will have three 7 minute race heats in which to gather qualifying points that determine the grid for the A and B Finals.

Race finals

Following the race heats, all drivers will compete in one of the finals, each of 12 minutes. Grid positions for the finals are calculated by the addition of each competitor’s points accrued in the heats i.e. the highest point scorer will gain pole position for the A Final and so on down to the lowest point scorer starting last in the B Final. A total of 20 drivers will automatically qualify for the A Final, with the remaining drivers placed into the B Final. The top 5 finishing drivers in the B Final will race again from the back of the grid in the A Final

In the finals, drivers are given 3 practice/kart check laps to test their karts prior to the race, and may change their karts at any time during these three laps.

Awards

Awards will be presented to the top 3 finishing drivers in the A Final and the winner of the B Final.

The results along with championship tables from each race meeting are posted on the comprehensive CLUB100 website at the end of the event.
