The Kit

Getting ready to distribute the kits to each team

Kits are distributed by heats on Build Day – July 5th.

  • 9 am Heat 1 – Build off begins
  • 11 am Heat 2 – Build off begins

The kits include all of the parts listed below.

Parts are split into two categories: Mandatory and Optional.

Mandatory parts must be installed on the go-kart for its intended use.

Optional parts are there to help you build your go-kart but don’t have to be used.

All go-karts will essentially have the same motor size and gear ratio (transfer of power to the wheels) to pass certification.

Framing material is NOT included in the kit and is completely provided by teams.

Parts list is subject to change as per availability of components.by

You can buy shares for any team you think will win for each race in our Calcutta. Proceeds go to the Giving back to the community campaign.

Heats will determine which Finals each team will be in.

1st – 5th move on to A-Side Finals
6th – 10th move on to B-side Finals

For the A finals each team will continue from where they left of in their heats.

The 1st teams in each heat will start the race with 100 laps completed and will have to complete another 100 laps to reach a total of 200 laps.

Now for the 2nd place teams, they will continue racing from the last completed lap after the checkered flag of their heat.   For example team A finishes first with 100 laps and team B is a lap behind and completes their 99th lap just after Team A finished their 100th lap.   Team B will then start with 99 laps in the finals, and will have to complete 101 laps to reach 200 laps.  To win they will have to reach 200 laps before all other teams.

For B finals, the race will start at 0 laps and they will have to complete 75 laps.

Note: Don’t be fooled by the lap differences between 1st and 5th due to a special fuel rule.  Teams are pitting often because they can only put 355 ml of fuel per pit stop.  Some teams will finish the race with a full fuel tank while others may be ahead with an empty tank.

Racing Hard!
