We  will  be trying start times around 2:00   gates at noon.   

Glen is looking for a track dryer or sweeper to help  make the day racing  better.

PROTEST AND CLAIM FORMS WILL  BE AVAILABLE AT TRACK.


THOUGHTS, SUGGESTIONS, COMPLAINTS WELCOME.... <WITH RESPECT>

PREDATOR RULES FOR 2013 ARE ALMOST COMPLETE....  

EVERY PREDATOR MUST BE SEALED BEFORE FIRST RACE OF 2013 SEASON.  YOU MUST BRING UNOPENED MOTOR TO ME OR  PURCHASE ONE I HAVE PREVIOUSLY SEALED.

THERE WILL BE NO TWEAKING, TINKERING, BENDING, FUDGING, OR CHEATING WITH THESE ENGINES... THEY WILL BE RAN AS THEY COME OUT THE BOX...  WITH THE EXCEPTIONS THAT WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE RULES.     IF YOU FEEL YOU MUST MAKE YOUR ENGINE FASTER... RUN ANOTHER CLASS.  PLAIN AND SIMPLE...  AND THIS IS NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION.

***OTHER CLASSES CONSIDERED IF 6 OR MORE KARTS COMMIT***

THANK YOU

JASON FOUX

Just to clarify on the clutch. Does it have to be a shoe type clutch or are the plate clutches legal?

steel  shoe/drum clutches  for clone/predator/novice classes   

If we  have enough karts to run  heavier  classes, it  can be discussed.  right now  this is the medium weight.   375  may be discussed at track, but people adding weight to make 350  will not  have enough room for the 375 weight. Smiley

this  has been a problem  all season... but.  I have seen the  heavier  karts  compete and win... soo..  if your  kart is handeling..  that  weight only   matters  on the start Smiley  IMO

Weight does hurt not just on starts it also hurts on recovery rate and off the corners. I agree a good motor and handling kart helps alot but you have to be perfect to be a lighter kart that is not perfect. It is hard to pass someone that turns sideways in front of you and you have to check up to not hit them. They just pull away from you do to the weight differance. I am not saying that it cannot be done but I understand the weight issue on both sides and it has been that way every sence I started racing. If there is enough to make a heavy class I am sure the track will allow them to race aginst each other. Most tracks require three karts to make a class I am not sure if The Kart Track requires that are not.

we are not wanting  5  classes with 3 karts  for this winter series.   trying to find the medium weight for these  guys to play with..    if we  get the kart count and  have enough  to make   another weight class.. i would love it....  guess we would know after  first race. ??

not really sure how to make all this work yet...    i think we  been doing the 3  karts make a class. 

i will  request a kart count and weights  and  go from there.

<i seen your big ol but was just as  fast as the skinny  dudes and dudettes at Acadiana  couple weeks ago Smiley

and that  big ol predator boy was pretty  darn fast too >   

I hope we  can get the kart count and weight to work out.
