Each car will have 4 drivers – All 4 drivers must register a time for both segments to be scored. If a driver does not register a time in either segment, the entire team will be marked DQ for the entire event.
 

Rules: 

All base Vehicles are valued at $1000 – teams must be able to prove that the vehicle is only worth $1000 at fair market. The Race Director can, at any time, determine that a vehicle is outside the spirit of the rules, to which the team CAN participate but will be scored as Exhibition, and not be awarded points, or recognized in end of event official results.

Vehicles must have all body panels present to participate.

Vehicles must have a windshield.

Vehicles must have a seatbelt, OEM or 5 point + with current safety rating

Vehicles must use the Spec tire – Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring whether running in exhibition, KOTH points, etc if a vehicle is not on Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring, it will not be allowed on track/pad.

Vehicles cannot use a tire wider than the OEM base model of the specific chassis

Any team competing in a Pontiac Aztek will be awarded a bonus 50 points for each event they attend, and will not be subject to the “Spirit of the Rules” judgement.

Vehicles must meet a 95db at 50 ft sound limit. IE OEM Exhaust. Sound Violation will result in event DQ and forfeiture of participation in the remainder of event.

Vehicles must not leak fluids excessively

Snell SA2015 or newer helmet, long pants, closed toe shoes, and a foam neck collar (on roadcourse) required 

Events will be run rain, shine, or snow. Race Directors Discretion

Convertibles are allowed

Points are awarded to the team, not the vehicle, so a team may show up with a different vehicle/drivers each event. If the team changes names, all points are forfeited.

Cars with high rollover risk are prohibited. IE Ford Exploder, Stewards Discretion

Unsafe parts will be disallowed – this includes ebay coilovers, suspect turbos, etc.

Nitrous is not allowed in any form or fashion on participating vehicles. 

Battery cannot be relocated and must be securely fastened in OEM location

Transponders will be mounted on the rear bumper of all vehicles. Replacement cost of damaged or not returned Transponders is $499. 

A Team may only bring 1 car per event.
 

The Ford Probe is no longer banned from entry.

$20 cash fines will be levied to teams who ask questions that can be found in this rulebook. This cash will be used toward end of season awards, track damage, or buying track staff lunch.

 

Everything that happens during KOTH is at Stewards Discretion. I reserve the right to enforce or not enforce anything as I see fit, as well as issue penalties as my imagination sees fit.

If you have any questions about a vehicle or parts legality – please email
Matt@motorsportspark.org

ON TRACK RULES

 

All drivers must attend the drivers meeting before being allowed to participate.

 

At check in, a Tech form for the vehicle will be filled out by the team captain, all drivers must sign and submit a helmet and harness form as well as a facility waiver.

 

Wristbands will be issued to the team captain, each wristband has a unique number. Vehicles will be assigned a 3 digit number, numbers will be issued at check-in and must be put on the vehicle in a visible place. The wristband numbers will correspond to the vehicle number in sequence – IE “Team NCM – Vehicle #100, Driver A: wristband number 101, Driver B: 102, Driver C: 103, Driver D: 104”

Drivers will show their wristband number to the grid-worker at either track or autox grid so timing can be assigned to that wristband number. If every assigned wristband number does not register a valid time on either course, the team will be DQ’d for that event and will not receive any points.

 

After the drivers meeting, teams can report to their respective paddock spots.

Strike system:

All teams participating in KOTH will be subject to a strike system. This is combined between the track and the autox. Strikes will be given for incidents, strikes are assigned to the team, not the driver!

 

3 strikes and the vehicle will not be allowed on any competition surface for the remainder of the day. One driver CAN earn 3 strikes in one session!!!!

 

Actions earning strikes: Spins, 2 off, 4 off, passing without a point by, any type of impact or contact, hitting an excessive amount of cones.

 

If you let a driver from another team drive your vehicle, strikes will be assigned to the CAR NUMBER not the offending driver.

When a strike is assigned, the vehicle will get a DNF for that entire session, no times will be recorded for the offending vehicle.

If vehicle to vehicle contact occurs, the offending party will have their team DQ’d and disallowed to participate for the rest of the event.

Organizers can disallow any vehicle from participation at any time at their discretion.

 

Point-bys are mandatory – all vehicles should have operating drivers side windows to facilitate point-bys. If a vehicle passes another without a point by, a strike will be earned.

AutoX will be done on a first come first served basis

 

AutoX will require a clean run from all wristband numbers for the team to score points.

 

Paddock speed is a strict 15 mph – No warnings
