Event requirements

 

Entering the Facility: PSGKA has two entrances. The "Main Gate" and the "North Gate". On practice days you will enter/exit at the North Gate. On race days you can enter/exit at the Main Gate in the morning, and enter/exit at the North Gate all day.  Sometimes both gates are open on practice days, but it's a less common occurrence. When in doubt, go to the North Gate.

Pitting: You can view the entry list on practice beforehand to see who all is coming. If it's busy, you may be asked to pit in a particular spot. During most practice days, there isn't much in the way of requirements on where you pit. I recommend pitting south of the scalehouse, which will put you between the track entry and the track exit. If your trailer is more than 24 feet long, you may find that pitting along the fence (toward the highway) may be most convenient for getting in and out.

Practice Groups/Schedule: There's three primary run groups required to be separated, these three groups are Kid Karts, Cadets/Junior 1, and Full Size. On a busier day, Full Size 2-stroke karts and Full Size 4-stroke karts will be separated. On any given day, the exact practice schedule can vary. But it usually involves a rotation of the groups there at the track. Most days we let the people there self-police the exact schedule. On busier days, we will enforce a schedule/rotation as needed.

Safety Gear Requirements: In order to drive at our track, you must have proper safety attire. This includes:

  • A properly certified helmet (see designations below)
  • Neck protection (for drivers under 16 years old)
  • Chest protection (for drivers in Kid Kart, Cadet and Junior 1)
  • Abrasion resistant jacket/pants or a race suit
  • Gloves that cover the wrists
  • Shoes that cover the ankles (high top shoes)

Helmet Requirements: Helmets used at our track must be one of the following certifications. DOT ratings alone are not sufficient.

  • Snell SA, K, & M 2015
  • Snell CMS 2016
  • Snell CMS 2017
  • Snell SA, K, & M 2020
  • SFI 24.1 2015 (Youth)
  • SFI 31.1, 41.1 2015
  • SFI 24.1 2020 (Youth)
  • SFI 31.1, 41.1 2020

Smoking/Vaping: There will be no Smoking/Vaping in the pit area. This is only allowed in the designated Smoking/Vaping area near the bathrooms.

Membership: We welcome non-members and members alike to come drive here. Club membership is not required to drive at our track. We do recommend you come with a member for your first time here, but it is not a requirement. If you're interested or able, memberships are the primary way we keep PSGKA operating and can make improvements. You can get more information and sign up for a membership here.

Anyone Registering to Drive: At these practice sessions, you cannot be at the track alone.  There must be at least one other person who is capable of dialing a phone in an emergency.  This can be another person in the pits, or even another driver.  This requirement is because the track supervisor will be there to sign you in, but may not be outside to supervise your driving.  If you arrive alone, and there's nobody else at the track, we may not be able to let you drive until someone else arrives.

Note: For Minors 17 years and Under: In order for minors to race or be in the pits, they must have a parent or legal guardian present to sign minor release forms. If a parent or legal guardian cannot attend, the adult who brings them must bring an annual parental consent form filled out and signed by a parent/guardian, and the custody form must signed by both parents/guardians and must be notarized. If you show up with only signatures, I cannot allow them into the facility.
