2015 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.

Practice 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 check using our Digatron fuel gauge. Our standard will be 87 octane from the Stop n Go on the south side of Brodhead purchased the day of the race. You must be within +/- 30 on our gauge or you won't be allowed to run.

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.

Driver Changes:
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.

Rough Driving:
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.
