RACING INFO: Rules
The rules and regulations are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. These rules shall govern the conditions of all events and by participating in these events you agree to comply with the conditions set forth by these rules. Unless specifically addressed herein, rules are to be determined by the National Karting Alliance Rulebook (NKA TrakBOOK). The AKA will also be using the Briggs and Stratton LO206 Rulebook to govern our newer LO206 classes (B&S LO206 Rule Book Download). Even though our LO206 classes are relatively new for the AKA track, we will focus on strict adherence to the technical specifications as outlined in the Briggs and Stratton Rulebook. The only exception will be that for the LO206 air filter, the AKA will adopt the NKA Animal engine rules governing air filters. Finally, the official Adirondack Karting Association (AKA) Rulebook will supersede both the NKA and Briggs and Stratton rules unless otherwise noted at a drivers meeting (2014 AKA Rulebook).
The AKA Inc. shall identify a Race Director who will be empowered to make changes from any specifications herein. He may also impose further restrictions that, in his opinion, do not alter the minimum accepted standard of the sport. If changes occur in the rules and regulations set forth herein, said changes will be announced at the drivers meetings and published here. It is your responsibility to keep yourself informed.
Safety and Sportsmanship will be emphasized at all events. We are all involved in kart racing to have fun. Although karting can be dangerous, and accidents are inevitable, when someone gets hurt it takes the fun out of racing. Compliance with safety rules is the surest way to prevent accidents. Poor sportsmanship by competitors, crew members and spectators can take the enjoyment out of karting. Safety rules as well as rules regarding sportsmanship will be addressed specifically.
No expressed or implied warranty of safety shall result from publication of, or compliance with these rules and regulations. They are intended as a guideline for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to participants, spectators or others.
The Race Officials are in charge during the event. Please respect the officials. Their collective interpretation of the event will be based on the rules. When necessary the Race Director will consult all officials on an incident and provide a ruling. Their word is final regarding rules and tech. Good sportsmanship is expected from all participants and their crews. Any disputes will be handled in a fair and civilized manner.
