Format

Drivers must weigh (with race wear) a minimum of 41Kg to be eligible for the Championship. The Championship minimum entry weight limit is 63Kg. This can include race suit, crash helmet, gloves and boots. Any drivers weighing below 63Kg will enter the Super-Lightweight Class.

The Championship minimum racing weight is 70Kg

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. 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.

Practice is 11 minutes duration and is generally used by drivers to familiarise with the circuit and kart.

Qualifying is 11 minutes duration. At the 11 minute mark, the chequered flag is shown. The timing will continue to include each driver’s final lap time.

Following qualifying, all drivers will compete in 2 Finals (A, B or C Pre-Finals and Finals). The top 24 qualifiers will be placed in the Pre-A Final. The following 24 will be placed into the Pre-B Final. The remaining drivers being placed in the Pre-C Final.

Each drivers finishing position in the Pre-Finals will determine the grid for the Finals.

The top 2 finishers in the Pre-C Final will repe-chage on to the back of the grid for the Pre-B Final and race again. Similarly the top 2 finishers in the Pre-B Final will repe-chage on to the back of the grid of the Pre-A Final and race again.

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.

All Finals will be of 11 minutes duration

Our Sprint racing is run on a very tight schedule, failure to arrive on time can result in you missing the event on the basis that you have not attended the briefing.
