The SouthWest Karters 2010 Points System

Class Championship

Each class championship will be determined based only on their class finish positions in each race.

The point scale used is equal to the number of people in the largest class.

Overall Performance Award

All classes and drivers are eligible.

Points are earned by calculating how close a drivers’ average race lap time compares to their qualifying time.

Drivers finishing the race will be rated ahead of those that drop out.

The point scale used will be equal to the total number entrants.

Three new tracks for 2010.

Here are the distances to the new tracks from Firebird.

Arryo Seco
332 miles (About 5 hours and 7 minutes)

Inde Motorsports Ranch

Bondurant Track

Hope you can race with us at those tracks.

We’ve got another class for 2010.

It’ll still run at the same time as everybody else.

We call it SPEC 180

It’s for people that are about average weight,

And have a Stock Moto engine.

If that’s you, then this is your class.

When you sign in just put SPEC on the sign up sheet.

We’ll still have our other groups.

250 cc twins and singles, 450 cc four strokes and other ³exotic² karts.

125 cc adult modified gearbox karts.

All adult electric start, one speed karts.
Other adult karts may be included depending on performance.

Slower performance karts.

The Spec 180 class fits in between the Shifters and the TAGs.

But not on this list, I had to list the rules for it, it didn’t fit.

SPEC 180

This class is intended for “Stock Moto” gearbox engines and average weight

1) Engines

organizations (SKUSA, IKF, WKA) will be permitted. (if you have a legal
engine with them you will be okay with us).

reed cage, and exhaust type.

This means:

style straight reed cages.
Stock unmodified cylinder and head assemblies.
Stock ignition box, no adjustable or after market ignition boxes.

We care about how much YOU weigh, not your kart.
