LAKE KART RULES

 

Rulebook        It is up to everyone entering the track to read all rules and be knowledgeable of the rules.

Go-Kart         By definition a go-kart is a vehicle manufactured for the purpose of racing and must be a racing frame.

Arriving at the Track           If you arrive at the track after your class heats have already been set up you will start scratch in the heat.

Safety             Is our main concern.  Therefore we are asking all drivers to have a fire extinguisher that will put out an alcohol fuel fire in their pit area, should you choose not to comply with this rule you are assuming total responsibility for your own safety.  Go-Karts that come to StarLite Speedway to race must be in SAFE race ready condition!  The Lakes Kart Club will do a safety check on all Go-Karts the first time they arrive to race at StarLite Speedway.  It is the Kart owner/drivers responsibility to insure that there go-kart is in SAFE working condition.

COMPETITION RULES

Flags

Green Flag     signifies the official start of the event. Green may be followed by an immediate yellow for complete restart at the discretion of the flagger. On a caution lap restart, race will resume immediately when green flag is displayed.

Yellow Flag    signifies track is not clear. Karts must reduce speed and remain in position, NO PASSING IS ALLOWED. Do not race back to the Caution Flag!

Red Flag         signifies automatic halting of the race. All karts must come to complete stop in a safe orderly manner. Race will be restarted at the last lap finished under green.

Black Flag      rolled and pointed at a driver signifies a warning for rough riding or unsafe driving. A Black Flag waved at a driver signifies that they are disqualified from the heat or feature and must retire to the infield or pits in a safe manner. A Black Flag may be thrown if a kart has mechanical difficulties. If violation is remedied the kart may return, under the track official’s discretion. A kart leaving the track to go into the pits may NOT reenter the race. NO exceptions!
