With the 2019 Race season well underway and continued participation during practice days, it is appropriate we review what should be appropriate procedures on these busy days.  First and foremost, safety is the number one concern. No activity or procedure should not be done on these days that would not be allowed on a full race day. Those include:

  • Practice days are for members only
  • All race gear needs to be on while on the track, including neck braces
  • No spectators on the track, karts only
  • No kart stands or recovery while karts are on the track
  • No mixing of inappropriate classes
  • Kid Karts should run by themselves
  • Motorcycles should run by themselves
  • Be considerate of the time on the track, particularly when there are large number of groups (fifteen minutes per group max when multiple groups)
  • Make sure everyone knows what the group make up and order is
  • No speeding in the hot grid area
  • No driving karts on the pit runners
  • Park trailers appropriately in designated pit spaces
  • Keep the place clean, please empty the trash to the dumpster
  • If we all make the effort to be courteous and help each other, we will all have a great day at the track.
  • No fueling in the grid area (it will destroy the asphalt)

kart_1aGulf Coast Karters welcomes and encourages members and non-members to volunteer to help run our kart racing events.  You don't have to race to be involved in kart racing at Gulf Coast Karters.  You can be a Corner Worker, Grid Marshall or work the Concessions Stand on race day and get paid for your service to GCKI.  You don't have to be a member to serve as a race worker. Come and join in the action! Sign up to work in the Worker Forum Thread.
