DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

 

 

League Racing on our state of the art indoor track, means you can reach speeds of up to 80KM per hour in five seconds! Competition heat up as divisions meet during each round. Loads of fun and super quick racing!

 

Division Structure of Series One is unique to Hi Voltage Karts where divisions will be set based on BEST lap times from the grading event.

Divisions will be limited to eight drivers and categorised from one through to the end division with the first being the highest and fastest racers.

Each League night will have multiple divisions. For example: Monday Division 1 will be made up of the fastest eight people who nominate for the Monday Series, while Tuesday Division 1 will be made up of the fastest eight racers who nominate for the Tuesday Series and so forth.

  • Changing divisions through the series will not be permitted

 

Rounds 2 and 4 will see points awarded for regular qualifying, followed by a one lap shoot-out to determine the race grid position.

Round 3 will test the Most Consistent with a 2 lap warm-up, followed by a 3 lap stint. Points will be awarded for closest grouping.

Round 5 – $35 (series fee returned if you compete in first 4 rounds) and Lights out racing for the final!

Driver’s worst round will be dropped before round 5.

Tyre change competition – Race Prizes

Sweepstake – Every entrant draws a kart number on arrival. If that kart number sets the fastest lap of the night they win a prize.

Racers who do not start race will receive a DNS (Did Not Start) and will receive NO (0) points

In the event of drawn points at the end of the season the winner will be decided on countback based on the highest finishing positions.

All drivers are expected to read and understand each rule. If a driver has any query about any rule he or she is expected to contact a Hi Voltage League Administrator for clarification.

Sportsmanlike behaviour is to be conducted at all times. Rules are not open to interpretation and are to be followed as they have been laid out.

Hi Voltage Karts reserves the right to exclude drivers from the series in the case of repeated unsportsmanlike behaviours and/or dangerous driving.  Series entry fee will not be refunded.

Racing Rules

  • Aggressive driving, unfair and unsportsmanlike driving is forbidden.
  • All complaints against drivers will be logged and multiple offenders will be banned from the league.
  • Collisions are to be avoided at all costs.
  • Leaning, pushing or forcing karts off the track in any situation is strictly prohibited.
  • The driver ahead must not ‘brake check’ the driver behind, that is; the driver must not brake maliciously in order to force the kart behind to crash into them. The ahead driver is allowed to brake early into corners and maintain the racing line.
  • If contact does occur and the guilty driver gains place(s) as a result of the contact, the driver in question must move off the racing line, slow down and allow the innocent driver(s) to pass at the next possible point of the racetrack. If this is not carried out, then penalties apply.
  • If contact occurs and it is unclear who is at fault then racing position prior to the collision must be put in place.
  • Drivers must respect whom has the racing line when turning into and coming out of a corner. The driver which has the inside of a corner has the entrance advantage. Other drivers must respect the driving line and avoid a collision.
  • If you are being lapped do not attempt to race the passing car. Blue flag rules apply. This means you must concede track position to drivers on the lead lap within a reasonable time frame.
  • The lead driver has the right to:
  1. Defend their race position within reason.
  2. Have the right maintain their choice of racing line into and out of a corner
  3. Choose their position they wish to drive on a straight
  4. Are not allowed to drastically change their line in a corner in order to prevent the kart behind from passing resulting in a collision or the kart behind having to resort to driving off the track to avoid an accident.
  5. Are allowed to make ONE tactful change of line in approaching a corner to defend their position.
  6.  Drive the defensive line around the track if they so wish, forcing the driver to attack on the outside, this is acceptable race etiquette.
  • If speed one (flashing lights) in enforced, no overtaking is permitted of cars still racing.  It is ok to pass any stricken karts as long as it is safe to do so. Normal full course yellow rules apply.
  • If you have an issue report it to staff who may review on the security cameras and take action post race.
