Red flag scenario 

 

2. If you are the cause of the red flag due to injury, you will have to start at the back of the grid if there is a restart. Subject to clearance from a first aider. 

2.1 If you cause the red flag due to injury and the results are called you will score last place points.

2.2 If less than 5 laps are completed by the leader when the red flag comes out there will be a full restart in the same grid positions you started the race subject to clause 2 & 2.1.

2.3 If more than 5 laps are completed by the leader when the red flag comes out we will restart with a rolling start single file in the order of the last lap completed subject to clauses 2 & 2.1

2.4 If the red flag is due to kart failure we will change your kart and you will restart in the same position before your kart broke.

2.5 In the heats If 15 laps are completed by the leader before a red flag comes out the results will stand (from the last completed full lap, subject to clauses 2 & 2.1) and there will not be a restart.

2.6 In the final if 20 laps are completed by the leader before a red flag comes out the results will stand (from the last completed full lap, subject to clause 2 & 2.1) and there will not be a restart.

 

Start Procedure 

 

3. The chicane will remain in for the first lap and first place will start on the left hand side

3.1 Reverse layout starts will be a rolling start behind pace Kart in 2 by 2 formation. No Chicane for the first lap on reverse starts. 

Qualifying 

Qualifying will take place across three groups. At the end of qualifying the order from fastest to slowest will be split into the pre A, B & C finals. Finals grid size will depend on the number of drivers racing.

If the circuit is changeable (drying or getting wetter) between qualifying groups then the fastest lap time from each group will qualify on Pole, 2nd & 3rd in the Pre-A Final. The second

fastest lap time in each group will qualify 4th, 5th & 6th in the Pre-A Final, and so on.

 

Even if the 3rd fastest driver in Group 2 achieves a faster lap time than the 2nd fastest driver in

Group 1 for instance, the Group 1 driver will be awarded the higher position. The reason being to nullify any change in track conditions across the qualifying sessions.

Blue flags

 

4. If you receive a blue flag and are being lapped by a faster driver, you must remain in your position until the faster driver has cleared all lapped battling drivers.
