Le Mans Karting

Thursday March 8th, 2018
For the new year we will be hosting our Winter Karting Series at Le Mans Karting in Portsmouth, VA!
Everybody participating will get to run (2) 7.5 min qualifiers plus (1) 15 minute Points Race for their entry fee(below).
The first qualifier(Q1) will be done primarily as a practice session and based upon single fastest lap times, determines the starting order for the second qualifier(Q2). Then starting order for the main race will be based upon the laptimes times from Q2.
Due to popular request and 100% vote at event #3, the final event will be done where your times from Q1 AND Q2 both count... your fastest single lap from either of those two races will be what determines your starting order and which of the groups you will be in for your final Points Race.
Le Mans can accommodate approximately (10) drivers at once, which will necessitate multiple qualifiers to be run, and the main race will be split into an A-Main/B-Main/etc as necessary.
Series Points will be awarded for each race on the following scale:
1st - 100
2nd - 98
3rd - 96
4th - 94
5th - 92

In the event of a points tie at the end of the series, placing will be dictated by the fastest lap time(entire night - times from both qualifiers and the main race are eligible) at the most recent event in which both(or more) drivers in question attended the same night.
