Wristbands are required at all WKC events.Your wristband provides visual proof that you have purchased a pit pass and have insurance coverage. Anyone not wearing his or her wristband will be fined $10. Anyone on the track premises who has not signed a release and purchased a pit pass will be escorted from the track.

Pit passes: All persons, regardless of age, entering any WKC racing venue must wear a wristband indicating they have purchased pit pass.The pit pass is more than just an indication that the entrance fee has been paid. It is actually each individual’s insurance coverage while they are on the premises whether they are a member of the pit crew, a family member or a spectator. Everyone must wear their wristband at all times while on the premises.

Once you are in the gate
Parking, pitting and camping WKC designates reserved parking areas for club sponsors, club officials and individuals who are working for the club.These areas are cordoned off with appropriate signage.You may not park, pit or camp in these areas without WKC permission. Do not, under any circumstances, remove any signage from the cordoned-off areas. All areas not reserved are available on a first-come, first-serve basis A good rule of thumb is don’t camp, pit or park in an area you are not sure is for that purpose and only take the amount of room you actually need. If in doubt about a parking space, please ask a WKC official for assistance.There is no parking or pitting allowed in the push-through areas leading from the paddock onto pit road. No vehicles are allowed on pit road.

Emergency exit after gate closing There is a gate available for emergency exits from SPR after the gates have closed for the evening.This key is strictly for emergency exits only—not for letting in friends who arrive late.

Electricity and water RV electrical hookups are in place at all tracks.The tracks govern fees and rules regarding the use of electricity.Water is available in several locations at all tracks.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_callout title=”Ready to Race? ” message=”Create an account or get registered now.

All of our tracks have great spectator viewing areas; stay behind the safety fences. Extreme caution is required when crossing the hot pit lane during the times the track is open for practice due to the number of karts leaving the hot pit lane and entering the track.

Quiet time: We observe quiet time at the track from 10 pm-7 am. Please be respectful of your fellow campers.

National Anthem: During the playing of the national anthem, stop all engines and activities. Show appropriate respect by facing the flag and removing hats. Parents are encouraged to teach their children appropriate behavior during the playing of the national anthem.

Racing with WKC
Drivers’ Meeting: The mandatory drivers’ meeting will start at the time printed on the pit pass. It is the driver’s responsibility to be at the meeting at the scheduled time. Drivers missing or late to the drivers’ meeting will be penalized per the rules in this handbook.

Practice day decals must be displayed on the right side of the driver’s kart.
Club decals will be required of all competitors competing for club points. Decals must be affixed to each side of the kart and will be checked on the starting grid. Decals are provided in the membership package and are also available in Registration for a small fee.

Chest Protection: Chest and rib protection devices are mandatory for all minor members (8-17 years old) and are strongly recommended for all drivers.

Driving suits and all personal gear will be required and inspected at pre-race inspection. Karts presented for pre-race inspection without this gear will not be inspected. One-piece driving suits are mandatory.

Spec fuel is required for the classes as noted in the rules.

Juniors and Minors: Minor competitors (ages 8-17) must have a copy of their birth certificates on file in registration before being allowed to compete. A “Minor Release of Liability” form, available in our online registration process, must be completed and signed by the parent or legal guardian. Further, if the minor is unaccompanied by a parent or legal guardian, a medical authorization letter dated and signed by the minor’s parents or legal guardian must also be on file in our registration system.

Fun Finale The last event conducted on Saturday and Sunday of the race weekend is the Fun Finale.The event is conducted only if daylight and time permit. It is for non-racers only. WKC conducts the event to promote the sport of karting. It is designed for friends, family members, pit crewmembers, etc. No one who has raced in the past three years is permitted to participate.WKC reserves the right to exclude any participant.The entry fee is $10. Participants must be a minimum of 12 years of age and have registered to participate. No trophies or points are awarded. Engines are any 2-cycle, 100cc engine, gas and oil only, or 4-cycle, sprint or enduro.There is no minimum weight requirement.Those wishing to participate are strongly encouraged to attend the novice school conducted on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. A special novice school just for Fun Finale participants will be held just prior to each Fun Finale; attendance at this school is required for participation.You should make arrangements with the individual allowing you to use his or her kart as to who is responsible for any damage to the kart and equipment before participating.The event is strictly for fun and is WKC’s way of introducing the general public to the sport of karting.

Rough Driving In our continual quest to provide the safest racing conditions for our participants, we have increased the number of observers posted around the track.Anyone reported to be bumping or pushing will risk penalty or immediate disqualification at the discretion of the Race Director. For further information, see Section 8.4 in this Handbook.

Race Tie-Breaker In the event of a tie finish, the driver who achieved the fastest lap during the race will be deemed the winner. If fastest lap time is identical, the tie-breaker will be the driver who started furthest from the front of the grid.

Year-End Tie-Breaker WKC to use WKA rule 803.11. In the event of a tie in the year-end point total, tie will be broken by the driver who has the most wins. If the number of wins is equal, the tie will then be broken by the driver with the most seconds, most thirds, etc.

Use of Two-Way Radios: All drivers are required to register their frequency at Driver Registration. Drivers must bring all radios with them to registration, and indicate the frequency to be used. Frequencies will be verified at that time via scanner. All frequencies will be monitored throughout the event weekend. No scrambling or encryption of transmission is permitted and driver/ crew must use only the frequency he or she has registered. Anyone found using a non-registered frequency will be disqualified. See WKA Tech Manual section Commun- ications for clarification on radio rules of use.

Noise Abatement is an issue at SPR. WKC is bound by contract to restrict racing noise to less than 103dB measured 50 feet from the track. Experience in 2002 shows that 250cc Twins and some other karts require mufflers or other sound reduction measures. Karts exceeding 103 dB will be restricted from the track.
