The driver, not the kart is the official entry. No driver substitutes are allowed. Drivers may change tires, engines, etc. so long as all changes remain within the specification for their class. All changes are subject to tech inspection.
Racing kart rules and specifications and race procedures will be per 2016 KART rules unless TKC rules are in conflict, then TKC rules will prevail.
Trophies or prizes will be awarded according to number of entries in each class. Kid kart participants will all receive trophies. All other classes will receive 1st through
3rd place trophies if class has 5 or more entries. If class has 4 or less entries, 1st place only will receive trophy. Race Promoter and TKC may develop a cash prize award program in lieu of trophies.
To participate in the annual point awards, one must be a member in good standing with the club. Drivers must participate in at least 50% of the races or more to receive annual points. Club points will be awarded at special regional races as well as points for the regional race. Points earned in two races will be dropped for determining the year end point standings. Bonus points may be awarded to all drivers at selected races. TKC or track Promoter may from time to time run special non point events.
No entry fee is returned after driver makes one lap of practice or race. (NO RETURN OF PIT PASS FEES AT ANY TIME). If race is canceled before any races are run, any entries or pit passes sold will be honored at the next scheduled club race. You must present your pass at the next event for it to be honored. If a race is terminated before the completion of all races, because of weather or other conditions, finishing position for the day will be determined by time trials or races completed in each class. If races are run in rain or wet conditions, the Race Director will determine when conditions are suitable for racing or red flag the race until conditions improve. Race Director will determine when and if conditions have improved enough to resume racing or cancel the remainder of the races as outlined above.
MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO ASSIST IN THE CLUB RACE DAY OPERATIONS, SUCH AS RACE DIRECTOR, PIT STEWART, CORNER WORKER, ETC.
