How cool is this!
It was a wet one for the first race of the SDKA season! Congrats to all that braved the conditions! We will post results soon! Stay tuned! In the meantime check out some pictures from the day.
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.
Just a reminder for all the sdka racers we will race in the rain. There will be several sets of Bridgestone rain tires for sale at the track see Alex Sanner.
Pit Passes: Effective beginning with the May race, the price for non-driver insurance bands (pit passes) will be $12 per person instead of the previous $10.
Rain Races: 100 Bonus points will be awarded to all drivers competing in any SDKA event officially declared as a "rain race" by the race director. This is a brand new policy effective beginning with the May race.
Events Scored Toward Championship: The policy for the number of events scored toward championships was changed to ... NO drops for 9 or fewer events held in the season; 1 drop for 10 or more events held in the season.
New Class: TaG Cadet (Mini Rok) added to the official 2014 classes. The class follows SKUSA rules and the spec tire is MG HZ (red).
Spec Tires: Bridgestone is the spec tire for Kid and Junior classes with exception of TaG Cadet as noted above; both YLC and YKC are allowed. Vega FH was added to the club tire options for Senior classes (the three club options are Maxxis SLR, Bridgestone YLC/YKC, Vega FH). MG SK and MG FZ are still options for the Shifter classes only.
Weight Change: Stock 125cc Shifter Heavy weight was reduced to 405 lbs to align with SKUSA.
Age Adjustment: Rookie Comer Restricted local option added – If age 11 on January 1st, may complete the season at 12 years of age.
Entry Fees: Member entry raised to $80; Kid Kart entry raised to $50.
Required Track Setups/Teardowns: Increased from 4 to 5 to qualify for year end championship awards (any combination of 5 setups and/or teardowns). We need your help to setup and tear down the races at Qualcomm. Remember to sign the clipboard in the tech trailer to get your service credits.
The 2014 SDKA racing season starts soon! Our first race is Sunday, March 2. We will be racing on the West course. Anyone interested in helping setup the event, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. For all you new racers, this is a good opportunity to walk the course you will be racing on.
It is also time to fill out and mail your 2014 membership application. The application can be found on the home page under forms. Early registration helps us prepare for the upcoming season.
On a personal note, was anyone watching the Kid kart and Rookie Comer racing last season. In my humble opinion, that was the best racing of the year. From the rolling starts to the bump drafting at the last race. Really exciting stuff. Looking forward to more.
Next update will be after the board meeting on Feburary 12th.
Check it out! After a long run with our old site we decided it was a time for a upgrade! Hope you like it! Thank you to the Gomez Family for building us this fancy new site!
SDKA will utilize a paced rolling start for Kid Karts. Hopefully this will work better with our larger turnouts. The Race Director will review with the Kid Kart drivers before the heat race.
