Kart class Overview
Rules and Regulations to be announced.
Solt Speedway would not be Solt Speedway without the iconic ‘Open’ class. The Jerry Solt legacy was built upon this unruly class with one’s imagination being the only restriction to the design & power of the kart.
Racing Format - Vintage format of racing the fastest from the back. The day will begin with qualifying, 1 heat race followed by a feature. Unlike a traditional race, bragging rights & honor will go to the hard charger who can defy the odds from the back of the pack. Sandbagging will only be for the faint of heart.
Age - 15 years and up.
Open Wheeled Flatheads-
A resurrection of a traditional Jerry Solt class, an open wheeled kart (No Noses) powered by the historic stock appearing flathead Briggs & Stratton engine are the only things restricting this untamed breed.
Racing Format - Vintage format of racing just like the 'Open' class. (See above)
Age - 15 years and up.
SPEC 206 -
The 206 by Briggs & Stratton is intended to simplify racing, From hitting the track to the tech process needed to ensure a level playing field at the end of the day in combination with Briggs & Stratton Racing’s slide restriction system, a complete racing ladder can be developed by simply changing a carburetor slide and/or by a slide and ignition change. With the base engine the basis for today’s ‘box stock’ classifications, the 206 engine gives racer’s and tracks the ability to have one engine, from start to finish.
Simply put, families can invest into one engine and have it carry them through different age groups for several years and still be competitive. The engine requires little attention as it mainly needs maintenance only. It is a great package for families looking to get into the sport.
Classes Include (Based off of entries the day of races)
Once the program becomes established. classes will become identified by school grade levels. Such as the "Jr. High 206" class or the "High School 206" class. The purpose for this structure is an attempt to help the general public more easily identify themselves with the sport.
ie. - For the karting community, the 'Jr. High' Class would be equal to the "Junior II" rule structure, simply given a different name.
Strict tire, weight, fuel, and other rules will be applied and enforced to restrict cost as much as possible.
AKRA rule package applies with a 33A Burris tire rule. (Track Rule) Right side tires must be used the entire day of racing.
