Sportsmanship and conduct
We have high expectations for the SPK experience, and these can only be met if drivers contribute to an atmosphere of safety, respect, and positive enthusiasm. Consequently, we expect the following of all participants:
Drivers will be educated to understand the function of flags on the track and the proper use of racing lanes. Any driver who violates these rules may be removed from the track. A few high level rules rules are essential and, if violated, will lead to immediate termination of the visit are:
In order for a clean pass to be made, all racers must understand where they are allowed to be and not allowed to be at every stage of a passing event. To help with this we split the track into three lanes consisting of two passing lanes and one center lane. Additionally some turns have a what is called a braking zone zone.
Stage 1: Pre-pass
In this stage the pass has not been initiated. The red kart is in the lead and has right-of-way to the track forward of his rear bumper. The Green kart is following and has right of way to the track forward of his rear bumper to the rear bumper of the red kart.
Stage 2: Pass initiated
In this stage of the pass the green kart has initiated a pass of the red kart. The green kart gains right-of-way to the passing lane on the side the pass is being made on.
Stage 3: Reversal of lead
In this stage of the pass the green kart has taken the lead and now gains the right-of-way to the center lane.
Stage 4: Pass complete
In this stage of the pass, the green kart has move ahead of the red kart and the pass gains right-of-way to the entire track forward of his rear bumper. Stage 4 and Stage 1 are the same with the kart positions reversed.
