This event will be held at the very grippy Brooksville Airport in Brooksville, FL.  This Saturday event is an event designed for novice and experienced junior karters, Jr B and Jr A (8-16 years of age). We'll cover the basics of autocross and how to drive safely. We'll also cover things to watch out for that are specific to junior karts. All of that is followed up with lots and lots of seat time with a break for lunch.
BROOKSVILLE GATE LIST: Brooksville requires a list of everyone who will be on site submitted 10 days in advance. If you are not already on the gate list from a previous event and it is less than 10 days from the event you should not register. For more information see the Brooksville Gate List FAQ.
IMPORTANT: All participants must check in with timing prior to 8:30 AM at the site. Registration closes at 8:30 AM, and check-in after that time may not be allowed as it potentially delays the overall event.  Late check-in will always result in a late fee. There will not be anyone manning the gate after about 8:00 so please be on site early or you won't be able to get in.
For lunch we will take orders and send someone off-site to get lunch or participants are welcome to bring their own. As always we will have water available for free.

This can be a description of the driver's past events, or training within a kart if they have never participated in an event. If you have not done this step PRIOR to the event, the karter MAY NOT BE PERMITTED TO DRIVE.

    • Brakes work with firm pedal.
    • No loose items are present in the car.


  • All karts being run at the Jr Kart School must comply fully with the class allowances for JA, JB, or JC.
  • For classing information, see Section 19 of 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules, which define the classing categories, and the allowable modifications in each category.
    • Cars that are near stock will generally fall into Section 13 “Street Category”.
    • If you have modifications to your car, work down the sections from Section 13 to Section 19 to find the category that accomodates all of your car’s modifications.


  • All drivers must wear a SNELL 2005/2010/2015 (M or SA) approved helmet. Other European standards are also accepted. See 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules.
  • If you do not own a helmet, we have loaner helmets available in exchange for your Driver’s License as collateral.
    • Pick these up at the timing trailer/tent prior to the heat you will be running.
    • In rare cases of high demand for loaner helmets, it may be required that you share the helmet with other competitors, or to turn in the helmet between your runs.

Sound Policy

  • Our general sound policy will be the same as for SCCA Solo National events. The general limit is 100 dBa at 50 ft where the vehicle is expected to be at its loudest. See Appendix I of the 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules for details.
  • The exact implementation for our regional events, will be somewhat different in that we will generally not have a dedicated sound position. If, in the opinion of the event officials, any vehicle might be in violation, the sound level for that vehicle will be measured on its next run, and the SCCA National rules will be imposed.
  • Note: Directional exhaust tips aimed laterally away from the sound measurement station DOES NOT constitute a viable remedy, although directional exhausts may be used to aim the exhaust straight up, straight down, or straight back.
