2013 Endurance Rules
Sr. Class 100 Lapper
We plan this race using the Sr. Box Stock Honda rules. All restrictors, weights and tech rules will remain the same. Diversions from the rules will be in the age, with 12 years and older allowed. The 12-15 year olds must be a current karter with experience. We also waive the Box Stock driver rules which limit who can compete. All other class drivers may field a Box Stock kart for this event.
We expect that most of our entries will be Hondas, but will allow Clone class entries also. We will award both drivers on the top 3 finishing Honda teams with trophies. Any clone class entries will be awarded our Olympic style medals.
Will be a continuous 30 minute session. The grid will be set by times run in this session. Drivers must have a transponder on and make weight when coming off of the track to have the laps just run count. We'd ask that if a team isn't planning to use the times run during a segment of the practice session to leave their transponder off.
There will be a fuel pump around before the race begins.
Team drivers must both make weight at the end of the race. Teams may only take weight off of the kart at the pit stop. No adding of weight allowed due to safety concerns. Each team taking weight off at the pit stop needs to secure a card board or plastic box with their kart number on it so it can be used at post race weigh in.
A driver change must be made between laps 26 and 76. Pit lane will only be open during these laps. Driver changes before or after will result in a 1 lap penalty. Teams must enter the pit and come to a complete stop. Our 'hand walk' procedure will be used to keep speeds on pit lane slow. We will demonstrate this in our driver's meeting before our event. Karts must be fueled during the pit stop. Before fueling the engine must be shut off and both drivers must be out of the seat. Any violation of this rule will result in a 15 second penalty. There could also be multiple 15 second penalties on a pit stop. 12-15 year old driver teams may ask to have their pit stop attended by one crew chief. The adult teams must manage their pit stop themselves.
We would recommend that teams spend some time building a fueling rig. It can be as simple as a 32 oz. plastic soda bottle with a gate or ball valve installed. Add a pipe nipple and some rubber hose and you have something easy to aim. You'll also need a vent of some kind on the bottom of the bottle to fuel quickly. Please leave your gas can and funnel in the pit so we don't start any fires.
Driving that constitutes a rolled black flag will also be accompanied with a 30 second stop and go penalty. We will communicate during the driver's meeting where the penalty box is. The 3rd rolled black offense by a team will result in disqualification from the event.
Repair of a Kart:
Repairs may not be made on pit lane. After pace laps are done and the race is green flagged the starting oval will be turned into the spot where teams can try to effect repairs. The team drivers may be assisted by one crew person while in this repair area. Once a kart is taken to the pit area it is deemed out of the race.
Yellow or Red Flags:
We will run the race with only area yellow flags, no full course cautions. We will use a red flag in instances where an accident may have caused driver injury.

- Clone Class Changes:
- Sr. Box Stock Clone class will follow WKA rules this year, exception being the tire rule which will remain open. Exhaust headers will also be open but will require and RLV stock class silencer.
- Jr. Box Stock Clone class will also follow WKA engine tech rules except for weights and restrictors. Those will be per SRR rules. Jr. Clone class will follow WKA header/muffler rule. Jr. Clone classes will use SRR Bridgestone YDS tire rule.
- The biggest change for 2013 in the WKA clone engine tech is the allowance of Aluminum or steel billet flywheels. This rule also makes current C.I. flywheels illegal. The check on ignition key also changes to a non tech item.
Find this icon at www.worldkarting.com to keep up with any tech changes through out the season. We don't post WKA's tech on our web site but will use the current manual plus any tech updates when doing an inspection on the Clone, KPV or Yamaha classes.
- 2 Cycle Class Pending Tech/Rules Changes:
- We'd like to hear from our 2 cycle participants regarding some possible class changes.
- WKA will change the Yamaha Super Can class to run the new RLV SR-Y exhaust. We intend to do the same at SRR. This is a $249.95 package which includes a spec header, pipe and head pipe.
- The input we'd like from you Yamaha drivers is whether it would be a good idea to combine the Super Can and Pipe classes using the RLV SR-Y set up. This change will speed up the can class as it adds 1.5 HP. It will slow down the pipe class but brings benefits. The set up runs a lower RPM band which saves on time between overhauls and clutch maintenance. The benefit for the can drivers is a cooler cylinder as the exhaust gases are moved away from the cylinder. The engine builders suggest this will make the can motor longer lived.
- We are strongly considering the WKA tire rule of Bridgestone YLC's for our Yamaha classes. Thoughts?
- KPV will see some changes in WKA this year also. They will move the Sr. class to an HPV2 pipe from the current 4 pipe. This may be a mute point as everyone on a KPV disappeared last year. Our instinct would be to follow WKA and institute the #2 pipe. Any thoughts?
- WKA says the KPV with the #2 pipe and the Yamaha with the SR-Y pipe are very similar in performance. Should we put these classes back together again?
Thanks for checking in.
