Steel City Indoor Karting - 2018 Winter Racing League

Below is the information for our upcoming race league.  Our fall league was a success and we've done a bit of tweaking based on the feedback from the racers in the first session.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out!

Registration:  $25
Cost:  $40 per week
Duration:  10-week league - 7:00pm-9:00pm
Start:  January 25, 2018
Minimum Racers to have league: 16
Max Racers for league: 27
Racer Age: 13 and up (or approved to race Adult heats)

League Duration
The league will race over 10 weeks.  Your top 8 finishes will be used in the calculation for overall points.  Therefore, you can miss up to 2 weeks without impacting your chances of winning the league.

All racers will get a warm up race, a qualifying race and a Main Event Race.  The qualifying race will seed you into the Main Event.  Main Event will either be our standard race (winner based on fastest lap time) or a 12-lap grid start (fastest racers seeded first, crossing the finish line determines the winner)

Kart Selection
Kart numbers will be done randomly (pick a number from the hat by each racer).   Order of picking for warm up race will be based on the best time ever completed at Steel City Indoor Karting.  Subsequent rounds will be based on fastest to slowest lap times on previous round that day.

Racer Weight Adjustments
Racers under 185lbs races times will be used as-is.  Racers between 186-230lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 1 tenth of a second.  Racers over 231lbs will have their fastest lap time adjusted by reducing their times by 3 tenths of a second.

Late Arrival to Race Day
If you arrive late and miss your slot for practice, you can still be added into the qualifier race.  If you also miss the qualifier, you'll be added into the last slot of the main event.  Cost is still the same.

Points to be given out based on finish position.  First place will get 50, second 49, and so on (no matter how many show up to compete).

All Current Race Rules at Steel City Indoor Karting are Active
We will enforce all rules we current have in place including blue-flagging racers that are slower during races where fastest lap time is the determining factor.

Equipment Failure
If a racer has equipment failure during the race, Steel City Indoor Karting will have the final determination on how it's handled.  This may include the racer being able to race a full or partial race, with other or by themselves, to obtain the needed lap time.

All other issues/challenges that may come up
Steel City Indoor Karting will have the final say in how they are resolved.

We must get at least 16 racers to start the league and will only let in a total of 27 racers.  If we get more interest, we'll start a waiting list.  If the waiting list gets to 16 racers, we'll have a second league.
