We want the races to be competitive but it's important that everyone stays safe, so here are some basic rules and regulations that all karts and drivers must follow:

  • All drivers must attend the briefing - if you don’t make the briefing you cannot take part in the race.
  • All karts must race on Bridgestone YDS Slick tyres.
  • All karts must have chain guards fitted.
  • All drivers must wear all-in-one race suits, gloves and full-face helmets.
  • There will be a staggered grid for 2-hour races.
