The Heavyweight sprint championship is open to new drivers looking to race for the first time, drivers in their second season and regular more experienced drivers who have not achieved the level to be invited into the higher Elite and Clubman Classes.

The Races are designed to promote racing between drivers of similar abilities through a modern format of – Practice, Qualifying, Pre-Final and Final. Minimum weight limits are enforced. The Heavyweight Championship is run over 12 rounds, with 24 championship points scoring Finals (best 18 of 24 to count).The events consist of a maximum 50 entries per round with drivers split into two equal groups in timed qualifying and two Pre-Finals (A&B) and two Finals (A&B) being run.

Note: Novice drivers looking to move up to Club100 must attend a Test Session prior to racing.

Weight limits

The Championship minimum entry weight limit is 80Kg. This can include the race suit, crash helmet, gloves and boots.

Any drivers weighing in below 80Kg will have to enter the Lightweight Class.

The Championship minimum racing weight is 88Kg

It is the driver’s responsibility to 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 throughout each day during the season and any driver found to be lighter than the required weight limit will be excluded from that race.

Buddy system

Another unique aspect of CLUB100 is our Buddy System. Drivers competing in their first ever Sprint event will have access to a ‘buddy’ driver who will be on hand to assist throughout the day. The CLUB100 ‘buddy’ drivers are more experienced drivers who know the rules in depth and are happy to help new drivers on their first race day. The other advantage of the buddy system is that drivers get to know each other, helping to perpetuate the overall club spirit that is one of the important aspects of CLUB100 both on and off the track.

‘Buddy’ drivers are allocated at the driver’s briefings.

Practice and qualifying

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 green flag is shown signifying the end of practice and the start of a 6 minute timed session to set a single best lap time per driver. The driver with the fastest lap from the timed qualifying will start on pole position in the Pre-A Final, down to the driver with the slowest lap time starting last in the Pre-B Final.

Pre-finals

After the grids are set in timed qualifying, all drivers will take part in a 12 minute Pre-Final race, with each driver’s fastest lap setting the grid for their Final. Championship points are awarded for all Pre-Finals. In the Pre-A Final, drivers are given 3 practice/kart check laps to test their karts prior to the race and may change their kart at any time during these 3 laps.

The top 4 in the Pre-B Final repe-chage onto the back of the grid of the Pre-A Final, joining those already qualified for this race.

Race finals

Following the Pre-Finals, all drivers will compete in a 12 minute Final. Championship points are awarded for all finals.

The top 2 in the B Final repe-chage onto the back of the grid of the A Final, joining those already qualified for this race.

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

Awards

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