The inaugural Lanier Raceplex 2018 Summer Rental Kart Sprint Racing Championship will be five races run during three alternating Saturday mornings beginning in June.
Maximum Number of Drivers: 60 (to be divided into two race divisions)
Thirty lightest weight entrants race - June 2nd, June 16th and June 30th
Thirty heaviest weight entrants race - June 9th, June 23rd and July 7th
The Saturday on-track activities are scheduled to begin at 8:30AM and finish by Noon. With three groups running in rotation, there will be about half-hour breaks between your four driving sessions.
Drivers will initially be separated into two divisions based on their weight; then grouped into three groups of 10-driver grids for the duration of the summer championship. The race groups will be based on lap times during the first weekend’s two timed practice sessions. Each race group will then have a ten-minute qualifying session to determine the grid for their first 12-lap race.
The next two race days will feature different race courses. Each day will have a ten-minute practice, ten-minute qualifying, and two races. The first-race grid position will be determined by each driver’s best qualifying lap time. The second-race grid position will be set by each driver’s fastest lap time in the first race.
Drivers will draw for their initial kart of the weekend. Karts will be rotated between sessions.
A Driver Champion will be established for each race group. Points towards the Championship will be awarded on the following finishing position basis:
1st 20 points
2nd 19 points
3rd 18 points
4th 17 points
5th 16 points
6th 15 points
7th 14 points
8th 13 points
9th 12 points
10th 11 points
- 1 bonus point will be awarded for pole position in each race.
- Tie-breakers will be the number of firsts, seconds, etc.
The Summer Rental Kart Sprint Racing Championship entry fee is $270 which covers all the race event practice, qualifying and all five races in the full duration of the series. Registration and full payment will be required before the first session.
