NEW FOR 2020

Our star championship is set for a change in format next season.

Running the 2 single classes (+SHW), together with a Class 1 and 2 system has worked well. It has certainly helped us operationally and allowed us to increase our maximum entry on the more popular events, which is why we have decided to continue with this class structure for 2020.

However, whilst we are big fans of the traditional 3 heats and final format, we think that some of the racing, particularly in the heats has been a tad too brutal at times. This we feel is due to the gap in driver ability. A new driver to the club learning his/her craft being placed on pole for heat 1, then to see 5 experienced C1 drivers desperate to get the best result possible, overtaking less experienced drivers with the use of contact is in ourbook unfair. Although, we have to say this has not been the case on every race heat. Indeed, we have had good feedback from new drivers saying that they have enjoyed racing with the quicker bunch, as it’s given themselves the opportunity to pick up tips and learn!

So, we are going to try a new format next year in the form of a qualifying session, followed by 1 Race Heat, a Pre-Final and Final. Now you might be thinking that a qualifying session will open up a lottery with the slight variance in kart to kart performance. Which is why we are going to take each drivers fastest lap from either the qualifying session or the heat, to determine the grid for the Pre-Final. Then each drivers finishing position in the Pre-Final determines the grid for the Final.

FORMAT
Warm Up Session:4 mins
Qualifying Session:6 minsFastest lap = Grid for heat A, B or C
Race Heat: 7 minsFastest lap from Qualy or Heat = Grid for Pre-Final
Pre-Final:10 minsFinishing position = Grid for Final
Final:10 mins

This new format will then, on the whole, see the more experienced entrants racing together from the word go in heat A.

Based on a maximum entry of 72 drivers, this is how each category would shape up –

Qualifying session 1x24 Drivers
Qualifying session 2x24 Drivers
Qualifying session 3x24 Drivers
Heat C x24 Drivers
Heat Bx24 Drivers
Heat A x24 Drivers
Pre-Final Cx24 Driversx4 Repechage to Main Final B
Pre-Final Bx24 Driversx2 Repechage to Main Final A
Pre-Final Ax24 Drivers
Final Cx24 Drivers
Final Bx24 Drivers
Final Ax24 Drivers

Championship points will be awarded as follows –

Heat A –All drivers awarded 20 points plus
5 points for 1st
4 points for 2nd
3 points for 3rd
2 points for 4th
1 point for 5th
Heat B –All drivers awarded 15 points plus the same as Heat A for top 5
Heat C –All drivers awarded 10 points plus the same as Heat A for top 5

130, 128, 127, 126, 125, 124, 123, 122 etc etc.
