At our SWK events we do a rolling start and we usually do the weights using the drivers weight, not the kart and driver together. You’ll be fine at whatever you come in at.
We are pretty easy on rules.
And now a little something about the classes we run.
We line up by you best lap in Practice/Qualifying (all laps are timed).
All karts run at the same time but are scored separately.
We have four classes. Fastest first.
250 cc twins and singles, 450 cc four strokes and other “exotic" karts.
125 cc adult modified gearbox karts. ICCs run here too.
It’s for people that are about average weight,
And have a Stock Moto engine.
If that’s you, then this is your class.
When you sign in just put SPEC on the sign up sheet.
We’ll still have our other groups.
This class is intended for “Stock Moto” gearbox engines and average weight
Weight (Note: We’ll use the honor system until there is a problem)
· The driver shall be weighed in his/her driving suit and driving shoes,
but without helmet, rib vest, neck collar, gloves, or other driving
equipment. Driver weight shall be 180 pounds minimum.
· If the driver is less than 180 pounds, he/she must have ballast
mounted on their kart that will bring the combined weight of driver and
ballast to 180 pounds.
· The mounting of ballast shall comply with existing safety practices.
· Drivers may not carry ballast on their person.
· The ballast used should be easily removable for total weight
· The weight of the ballast shall include mounting hardware only if that
is the only function of that hardware.
· The weight may be marked by officials after verification.
· Driver weight may be checked before or after an event.
The scale for each event will be a bathroom scale.
We care about how much YOU weigh, not your kart.

Other adult karts may be included depending on performance.

Hopefully good judgement and common sense work here.
