SPORTSMANSHIP

Racing at MCFKC follows WKA rules except as stated in this guide or at the driver's meeting. It is the Track Directors job to enforce all rules and guidelines laid out by the WKA and the MCFKC Board members. The Board Members and Officers present will hear any appeals or concerns.
SPORTSMANSHIP
All drivers, crew and MCFKC members are expected to act in a
sportsman like manner at all times. No aggressive, assault, lude or profane actions or words will be tolerated. Actions taken by a
driver or crew member in this regard will be cause for the entire
team being asked to leave. All points for the day will be forfeited and no refunds given; should a second incident occur, the driver or team member will not be allowed back at any MCFKC or MKS
event.
DRIVING CONDUCT
Drivers at MCFR are expected to compete without touching or
endangering other drivers, participants or workers. Inadvertent
contact is a reality of racing, however, if an Official judges a driver to be crowding, chopping, bumping, blocking or pushing
another participant in a non-advertent manner, that driver will be
subject to disqualification.
The consumption of alcoholic beverages on Marquette County
Fairground property is prohibited.
It is every driver's responsibility to make passing possible.
Deliberate use of foul driving tactics to make a pass or prevent a pass will not be tolerated.
KART NUMBERING
Kart numbering at MCFKC: no two individuals shall have the same exact number at Marquette County Fairground Racing. All MCFKC members will be allowed to keep his/her number from season to
season as long as he/she remains a member in good standing and by paying renewal fees by April 30th of the succeeding year.

FLAGS

GREEN

Start, restart and track open.

YELLOW

Full course caution, reduce speed to½ of racing
speed and prepare to slow or stop to avoid a kart stopped on the track or corner workers. Form up single file line behind the
leader. Caution laps are not scored.

YELLOW / RED

Same as yellow except stop at the start/finish
line.

BLACK (ROLLED UP)

Pointed at you, you are being warned about improper driving, rough driving or blocking. Your number may also be displayed on a signboard near the start/finish line.

BLACK (UNFURLED)

Pointed at you, you are no longer being scored. You have been disqualified from the current race. Pull in the pit area on the next lap. If your number is posted on the signboard, it will be circled. (If violation is considered gross, see the sportsmanship rule.)

BLACK / YELLOW

Rolled up and pointed at you, your kart is
unsafe or leaking. Pull off into the pits on your next lap, you may return after repairs have been made.

BLUE / ORANGE

You have been caught by fast traffic, be
prepared to be lapped.


WHITE

Beginning last lap.

CHECKERED

Winner, race is over, all karts exit track via pits. The winner is encouraged to run an extra lap with the checkered flag at the completion of the last race for the Juniors and Adult classes. Cadet and Rookie classes can carry (if time and
weather permits) the checkered flag for any win during the race day.

RACE TRACK STATS

 STARTS

Racing starts or restarts at the drop of the green flag. The grid will be reset until all karts taking the green flag complete one incident free lap. After two attempts the field will be started single file.

TECHS

Any karts eligible for points, racing at any MCFKC event, finishing in the top five (5) may be subject to a complete onsite engine teardown and tech inspection after the last race in its class has been completed. The owner may do the work, not the inspector, if he/she desires. If an owner refuses tech or an engine is found to be illegal, all points for that days racing will be forfeited. Restriction plates are subject to inspection at any time. All karts may be subject to an immediate tech inspection if deemed necessary by the MCFKC Board.

MUFFLERS

All 4-cycle karts must be equipped with WKA approved mufflers. All 2-cycle karts must be equipped with an air silencer.

FUEL

Flat Heads use methanol, 2 cycles use gas and oil only and the 206 uses GAS.

PRACTICE

All practice sessions will be grouped according to class and speed and allowed 10 minutes rotating practice sessions.

BREAKDOWNS

Drivers are expected to pull safely off the track and remain with their karts until the race is over and all karts have cleared the track. A driver will be disqualified if he/she or a crew member crosses the track or drives through the "short-cut" under green flag conditions.

PENALTIES

 

SIGNALING

Drivers are expected to give a warning to following drivers, by raising of an arm, anytime speed must be abnormally checked. Drivers should signal to the flagman as well as other workers if he/she feels another driver is driving improperly, by pointing in that driver's direction.

GRID

Positions for the first race will be drawn for at the time of registration. The second race will be inverted from the first drawing.

OUTLAP

The first lap is to run, single file, at caution lap pace. Following laps are to be run at the speed set by the pole sitter. Maintain a minimum of two kart lengths between karts. After the "one to go" sign is given, drivers are expected to close up (no more than one length between rows) but maintain a space between karts.

CLASSES

A separate class will be run if three or more like karts sign up. If needed, classes will be combined but scored separately. If combined, the fastest class will start first. Separate age groups are not allowed to be combined.
