Racing Leagues

Current Leagues

Cost:  $50 per week
Duration:  7 week league – Tuesday Nights – 6:45pm-9:30pm
Start:  November 7th
Minimum Racers to have league:  16
Max Racers for league: 27
Racer Age:  13 and up (Adult Heats)

Format: 

Races
All racers will get 1 warm up race, 2 qualifying races and a Main Event Race.  The qualifying races will seed you into the Main Event.  Main Event will either be our standard race (winner based on fastest lap time), 12 lap grid start, 12 lap rolling 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 180lbs races times will be used as-is.  Racers between 181-230lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 1 tenth of a second.  Racers over 230lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 3 tenth of a second.

Points
Points to be given out based on finish position and number of total racers.  For example, if 27 people race, first place would get 27 points, second would get 26, and so on.  Total points over the seven-week league will determine winner.

Rules:

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.

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

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.

Registration:

Call (412-380-1314) or stop by Steel City Indoor Karting to register for the league.  Registration is $50 to hold your place.  If you race all 7 weeks, your last week’s league fee will be covered by your registration fee.

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 on Monday nights.
