If you are shown a black flag please
drive the circuit slowly and enter
the Sin-Bin at walking pace,
stopping at the marshals request.
The black flag is used if you have
ignored the rules and require
us to penalise you and remind you
of what you have done wrong.
After a chat with the marshal
you will re-enter the circuit to
carry on racing.
If you receive 3 black flags or we deem
you to be out of control or unsafe
to yourself or other drivers you will be disqualified and taken off the circuit.
BUMPING - Bumping is when a driver hits another from behind/side, we do not allow bumping as it causes crashes, it is unfair to race in this way and is dangerous to other drivers.
SKIDDING - Skidding is when a driver loses control of the kart and either slides around the corner sideways or spins all the way around. If a driver spins around they will receive a warning board, if a driver spins around and causes a crash it will be a black flag. We say drive to the limit of yourself and the kart .
PEDALS - Do not press both pedals at the same time (2 pedals are on a kart, left pedal is the brake and the right pedal is the accelerator) pressing both not only slows you down but will also destroy the clutch.
WEAVING - Weaving is when a driver moves side to side to side, to block an overtake from another driver. Not only is it un fair but also dangerous and may cause an accident.
CALM DOWN - Not much explanation here, you are driving beyond your limits or your driving is too aggressive please calm down or you will be black flagged.
If a group of drivers are caught speeding on yellows/overtaking or continuously bumping or skidding, we will red flag the event and
re-brief the group. It is at our discretion if we let the event continue and at any time if we feel the driving on circuit is out of control and a danger to our staff and the drivers we may forfeit any remaining time/laps and ask the group to leave the circuit without refund.
If it is a sole driver breaking the rules and after a black flag if the behavior is still dangerous we will stop the event and ask the driver to exit the circuit.
We do not offer refunds for any track time lost by way of crash or group forfeit. We reserve the right to stop any event in the interest of health and safety.
