Endurance Racing Format and Rules
Endurance Race Format and Rules:
- G-Force Karts must have a minimum of 6 teams registered in order to start tournament.
- G-Force Karts will only register a maximum of 8 teams for this tournament.
- Endurance races are 2 hours long or 300 laps, whichever comes first.
- Each team will consist of 3-5 racers.
- Each racer will run between 10 and 100 laps per driver session.
- No racer can run more than 150 laps in a race.
- Each team must make 3 mandatory pit stops.
- Teams can pit as many times as necessary in order to complete the race.
- Qualifying will be 5 laps in randomly assigned karts.
- Qualifying fastest lap times determine the starting order for the race, not the kart number.
- Karts will be selected randomly by drawing.
- Teams will be gridded up for a standing start on the track, remember this is a 300-lap race.
- Crashing or getting a penalty in the first corner, does not benefit your team.
- Trophies will be awarded for first, second and third place. 6-8 teams will be signed up for the endurance race.
- Each team must pay the entry fee at the time of registration (paperwork is considered void without payment) to be eligible to race. In the event that you do not show for the event you forfeit the entry fee. (G-Force Karts has the option to add drivers, not to exceed 10 teams total)
- The karts will go the entire 2 hours with no need for refueling or tire changes.
- Each team will be tracked in the computer and the kart with the most laps who cross the line first after the allotted time or who completes 300 laps first will win.
- In the event that a kart fails for a mechanical reason other than a crash, the driver will be given a replacement kart. The race will not be stopped unless it is deemed unsafe to remove the kart from the track for the team to get a new kart. If equipment failure happens after an impact with anything NO back-up kart will be given.
- If a race needs to be slowed to remove a kart and replace it, the karts will be slowed using the Shutdown system. No passing will take effect under this full course yellow situation.
All G-Force Karts Rules Apply
- The first penalty for violation of the rules will be a 10 second pit stop for that driver’s kart and driver in the pit. Penalties start upon all other karts exiting the pits. *Example. Driver 5 gets a penalty. Driver 4 is in the pit changing drivers. Driver 5 must wait to receive their penalty time until Driver 4 has exited the pit after changing drivers. The second penalty for a violation of the rules will be a 30 second pit stop for the driver. The third penalty for any particular kart regardless of driver will result in removal of the kart from the race.
- Most racers are accustomed to a 20-lap race. This is a 300 laps or a 2 hour endurance race, not a sprint. Remember that there will be hundreds of turns to get past your opponents, not just the next one in front of you.
- This event is non-refundable. No refund will be given for any reason, kart malfunction, and violation of rules, improper conduct or basically losing the race for any possible reason on the planet that could occur. No Whining, Complaining, or Running with Sharp objects.
- Please remember that this is supposed to be fun. We award prizes, trophies and other items for endurance races, but the goal is to enjoy 2 hours of spirited racing in a competitive environment without someone getting hurt. Remember your manners and act appropriately as a winner or loser. Take into consideration that there are a number of other people trying to enjoy the same experience that you are. Don’t be a poor sport and ruin the experience for someone else. Inappropriate actions will result in the participating member being barred from racing at G-Force Karts again.
- Prizes will be determined by sponsorship participation. Prizes in the past have included but are not limited to, Race credits at G-Force Karts and gift certificates to restaurants and other venues.
- G-Force Karts has the right to change rules, add rules and delete rules at any time without notice to drivers or parents. By registering and paying your entry fee you agree to all rules and regulations.
