NEXT RACE IS SATURDAY APRIL 5TH - QUALCOMM SOUTHEAST
In case you missed it on the forums, we will be running a modified West course layout. The North section (beyond what was the Kid Kart cutoff) has been shortened but with more turns added, making it more technical. With the revisions, the front straight is also a little shorter. The track length is 8/10th mile. There will not be a Kid Kart cutoff, all classes will run the full race course. Gearing will change as a result of the modified layout; you may need to add +/- 3 teeth.
Here's a link to the track layout. We will also have copies at the race.
We will be changing the starting process for Kid Karts. We would like to try a paced rolling start - hopefully this will work better with our larger turnout. The Race Director will review with the KK drivers before the heat race.
Please try to have your entry form fully completed and LEGIBLE before handing it in to registration. We are actually having some difficulty in scoring due to forms that are difficult to read/understand. Did you know that you can fill out and print the entry form directly from the web site? Here's the link: ENTRY FORM
