Roadracing in Arizona & New Mexico

Event Format & Classes

How Points are determined:

Here’s the point system we’ll use for 2009. There are some changes from previous years:

For each class, there will be an 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.

There will also be an 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.
•    The point scale used will be equal to the total number entrants.

We have four classes.

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 ³Stock Moto² gearbox engines and average weight

1) Engines

·     125cc Honda Moto-Cross engines that meet other approved karting
organizations (SKUSA, IKF, WKA) will be permitted. (if you have a legal
engine with them you will be okay with us).

·     Special attention will be made of the carb size, ignition, reeds and
reed cage, and exhaust type.

This means:
Stock reed cage any year with aftermarket reeds, no V-force or Swedetech
style straight reed cages.
Stock unmodified cylinder and head assemblies.
Stock ignition box, no adjustable or after market ignition boxes.
Ignition wire and boot non tech item, stock coil only.

·     Other engine combinations may be allowed on case by case bases.
Contact the Karting Director before proceeding.

2) Weight

·     The driver shall be weighed in his/her driving suit and driving shoes,
but without helmet, rib vest, neck collar, gloves, or other driving
equipment. Driver weight shall be 180 pounds minimum.

·     If the driver is less than 180 pounds, he/she must have ballast
mounted on their kart that will bring the combined weight of driver and
ballast to 180 pounds.

·     The mounting of ballast shall comply with existing safety practices.

·     Drivers may not carry ballast on their person.

·     The ballast used should be easily removable for total weight

·     The weight of the ballast shall include mounting hardware only if that
is the only function of that hardware.

·     The weight may be marked by officials after verification.

·     Driver weight may be checked before or after an event.
The scale for each event will be a bathroom scale.

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

Junior and or slower drivers will be permitted to run based how fast they run. Too large of a speed/lap time difference and the junior will not run. We will attempt to have a lower cost Junior/Rookie school and driving session be available, advance notice required. It may be necessary to have the slower karts run practice only.
