I believe James already knows about this but Concept Haulers is hosting a Yamaha pay race! With money going to the top 3 competitors in Senior and Junior, it certainly sounds like it’ll be a fun time. From the looks of it they’re planning on including a vintage class and Cadet as well.
Personally I’ve only been to Concept Haulers once to practice and I don’t even remember the times I was getting but overall I like the track and now I’ve got a better reason to go race there. I doubt I’ll make it on the podium but I’m just in it for the fun anyways so who cares
Just another head’s up on this: The 1st annual Yamaha shootout will be on April 29th 2017.
*This event will be held in conjunction with CHMS club racing series, which tends to have classes populated with Lo206 karts and a healthy attendance on all subclasses including Masters. There are options for everyone involved, including rental kart classes.
Rules for club racing classes are WKA with focus on driver safety and on keeping a clean and fair event:
The Briggs Lo206 manual is followed when it comes to engine tech
Tires are MG Blues
For Lo206 classes, fuel is provided with your entry
Club race events are structured into 3 practice rounds, 2X 6 lap heats, and a 12 lap final.
Rules for the Yamaha classes on the special event will be WKA with a couple minor tweaks to incline it towards the RT66 rule package:
Tires: MG REDS
Weights: 350# for Sr/310# for Jr
Fuel: 110 spec Sunoco
Engine specifics: Can muffler
22-lap final with a 10-lap pre-final and knockout qualifying. $3000 in prize/cash purse.
Entry for the Yamaha race is $75 if you pre-enter, $100 at the gate. Club race classes are $55 at the gate.
*Edit: $75 entry is good until the week prior only. $100 is for the week of and gate. If you purchase fuel, tires, and the entry at the same time you will get a discount on entry.
