Effective Immediately

We have grown increasingly concerned with the practice of running Kart engines at full throttle, on the stand in both the pit and grid area.

This has resulted in numerous instances of blown up rotors that, in some cases ejected parts into surrounding areas. Additionally the practice of running on stands raises the issue of rapidly turning wheels just inches from the heads of junior drivers. We have been very fortunate that no serious injuries or deaths have occurred.

Accordingly we are implementing the following regulations for the grid and pit areas.
The practice of running engines at high rpm’s for extended periods will no longer be allowed in pits, pre-grid or grid areas.
When in the pre-grid area no running is allowed. This is also true for water cooled motors. They should be warmed up in your pit area.
When in grid area the engines may only be run on the ground not on stands.
Kid Karts: At events where fuel is supplied will be allowed a minimum amount of low RPM running to ensure the fuel has reached the carburetor. This will only be allowed when under the direct supervision of a designated race official.
We realize that it is frequently necessary to run the engine after maintenance, This will only be permitted at modest RPM levels for limited periods of time. Extended running at RPMs above clutch stall speeds to preheat motors prior to racing is no longer permitted.

Remember Safety First.

Failure to adhere to these revised regulations will result in disqualification.
