Format

***Drivers should arrive at the circuit at least 45 minutes before the race is due to start***

As per previous seasons, the format remains unchanged.

 

Drivers will take part in a 10-minute Qualifying session to determine starting positions for Race One of the day. As soon as Qualifying is over, drivers will be lined up and they will race their first race, a 20 minute fight to the flag.

 

Drivers will then have a short break before lining up for their second race. They will then have another 20 minute race to the flag. In most cases this race will be a reverse grid of the first race's finishing result. So the winning driver will go to the back of the grid, the last placed driver will start on pole.
Where possible we will try to make sure that drivers have a different Kart for their second race, but this will depend on each circuit and how their timing systems work.
Points are awarded to the top 10 drivers in each race.

 


Weight classes for the 2019 Championship are as follows:


Lightweight: 65kg - 78.3kg.
 

Mediumweight: 78.4kg - 91.6kg.  

Heavyweight:  91.7kg+.


All drivers will be weighed in overalls and helmet. please be aware that should any driver loosing or gaining weight and therefore having to change weight classes during the season will be deducted a total of 20 points from their overall score.

 

Points scoring for 2019 will be as follows:

Drivers will be allowed to drop four races during the season, with their best TWENTY races counting towards the championship.

 

1st = 12 pts

2nd = 10 pts

3rd = 8 pts

4th = 7 pts

5th = 6 pts

6th = 5 pts

7th = 4 pts

8th = 3 pts

9th = 2 pts

10th = 1 pt

 

Pole Position for Race 1: 1 point.

Fastest Lap (each race): 1 point.

In the event of a tie, the position will go to the Driver who has the highest number of pole positions or fastest laps.

 

If you are entering the 2019 Sprint Championship, good luck to you and enjoy you're racing.
