The league will race over 8 weeks. Your top 7 finishes will be used in the calculation for overall points. Therefore, you can a 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 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 Classes and Adjustments
Weigh-in is the first race night and that weight will be used for the duration of the league.
Middle Weights (Under 200lbs)
Racers under 165lbs will use their races times as-is. Racers between 166-185lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 1 tenth of a second. Racers between 186-199 lbs will have their fastest lap time adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 2 tenths of a second.
Heavy Weights (200lbs and above)
Racers between 200-225lbs will use their races times as-is. Racers between 226-250lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 1 tenth of a second. Racers over 250lbs will have their fastest lap time adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 2 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.
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.
