a) TYRES For the class competing in the O plate, one set of slick tyres will be allowed per competitor for the event (warm-up, heats and finals), which must be purchased from the official supplier using the attached order form, plus one front and rear. These extra tyres may only be allowed at the discretion of the event scrutineer if in his opinion either one front or one rear tyre is un-safe to use. It is the competitor’s responsibility to make sure that the scrutineer inspects a faulty tyre before leaving the parc ferme area. No extra tyre will be allowed after the kart has returned to the pit area. Excessive wear does not count for a replacement. It is the competitor’s responsibility to purchase any extra slick tyres from the official supplier. One set of wet tyres should be purchased from the official supplier. All tyres will be held under parc-ferme conditions. The scrutineers may make tyre tests. Tests may be carried out by a portable detector to detect the application of illegal chemical substances applied to tyres, in contravention of MOTORSPORT UK regulation U16.9.6 as per Karting UK Yearbook 2019, App 4, Section G. Tyres will be marked or barcodes used to identity for each competitor. Tyres are not allowed to be left at the circuit – each competitor must remove his/her own tyres. Tyres are barcoded and owners traceable – any tyres found left at the circuit will be disposed of and the owner charged the disposal fee paid by CKRC. b) FUEL & FLUIDS For all O plate classes the only petrol allowed to be used during racing will be that petrol nominated by the championship organisers from a nominated petrol pump at a designated local service station. MOTORSPORT UK regulation C4.1 to C4.2.1 applies. The entrant must obtain a receipt from the designated service station dated no earlier than the Thursday preceding the meeting. The receipt must be shown on request of the Technical Commissioner, the Eligibility Scrutineer or the Chief Scrutineer or the fuel official. The designated pump will be promulgated in Final Instructions. Any fuel testing done at the circuit is not the definitive test merely an indicator to proceed with fuel comparison and/or analysis testing, which will be carried out as per D.34. Comparison testing of fuel will be carried out after the event by a Motorsport UK designated tester (for an MOTORSPORT UK approved comparison test as per C4.2) in accordance with D34.3. Three individual samples will be taken and sealed as per D.34.1.4. One sample, selected at random, will be sent to the tester along with one sealed sample of the control fuel, mixed with the declared oil and ratio, plus one sealed sample of unmixed control fuel. The Eligibility Scrutineer or Technical Commissioner will retain the further samples and sealed samples of the control fuel. Results will remain provisional until the tests and judicial process are complete. If you have fuel samples taken for further analysis of additives (including oil) or for comparison testing, you will be required to make a written declaration to the scrutineer stating the make and type of oil that you have used in your petrol, and the ratio mix. A deposit of £500 will be required towards the cost of the comparison or analysis fuel testing.
If your samples do not conform to your written declaration or are found to be ineligible you will be excluded from the meeting and reported to the MOTORSPORT UK and ABkC. If proven to be ineligible that competitor will pay for the cost of the tests and all costs incurred. A minimum of three litres to be available is recommended (U.16.18) but a minimum of 1.3 litres is mandatory to allow for comparison testing and/or analysis of additives (including oil). The testing of fluids other than fuel will be carried out by taking three samples, each of equal volume, and labelled and sealed. One sample will be tested by a MOTORSPORT UK approved official using approved test equipment in accordance with MOTORSPORT UK approved procedures. The principles applied to the testing of fuel samples in D.34. will be followed as appropriate for the testing of such other vehicle fluids. Any time during the meeting you may be requested by the Eligibility Scrutineer to replace under supervision the fuel in the kart with fuel that will be given to you by the scrutineer, for use for the remainder of the meeting. The cost of this fuel is to be paid by the competitor prior to their next race. Any competitor found to have been using fuel, tyres, or equipment not conforming to these regulations, will be subject to any costs involved in carrying out any necessary tests or eligibility procedures. Failure to pay these costs will result in exclusion from any further championship meetings organised by the ABkC and may result in being excluded from any meeting organised by a club, which is a member of the ABkC.
c} Parc Ferme regulations will apply to slick and wet tyres for the O plate class only and these will be distributed from parc ferme for all classes.
d) At the direction of the Chief Scrutineer, standard parts (e.g. ignition or exhaust) or tyres (similar or better tread depth) may be supplied by the organisers and must if requested be exchanged. These parts/tyres must be returned in good working order at the end of the meeting, unless the entrant’s part/tyres has been impounded for testing. If Fuel and oil is supplied by the organisers then the competitor will be required to pay for the fuel and oil that is used.
e) Only one chassis and two engines may be scrutineered for racing. During the meeting should a chassis be damaged beyond repair on the recommendation of the scrutineer and at the discretion of the Clerk of Course a second replacement chassis will be permitted. If seals are used on chassis and/or engines, the numbers must be written on the scrutineering card.
f) It is a condition of entry that a driver will, when so directed by the Eligibility Scrutineer or his deputy, carry on-board cameras and recording equipment for either judicial or filming purposes. Should it become necessary to carry on-board cameras, the competitor and kart must be checked and passed by the Scrutineer. Minimum weights will include on-board cameras and associated equipment.
g) Infringement of Technical Regulations: The minimum action resulting from infringement of technical regulations arising from post race scrutineering or Judicial Action will be exclusion from the race or timed qualifying session, and the maximum action will be exclusion from the meeting. This shall not apply in the case of drivers being underweight or in the case of a technical infringement due to an incident during a race, such as an Air box, exhaust etc. falling off. The penalty for these types of infringements, shall be exclusion from the race.
21. Any driver considered to be baulking or blocking another driver may be penalised. Q.14.4.1 applies. A driver who consistently places their kart on a line that is not that recognised as the racing line, in a effort to prevent being overtaken, may be warned as to their unsporting conduct and should they continue they may be given a 5 place penalty.
