Event Run Groups
Based on registration numbers, competitors will be broken down into 2 run groups and run according to the set schedule above.
Group B works while Group A runs. Group A works while Group B runs. Also, Group B will be required to work the first half of each Junior Kart session and Group A will work the last half of each Junior Kart session.
This event will be run similar to a regular season event, however, no points will be awarded nor will times be recorded. The timing system will be up and running for competitors to track their progression throughout the day for car setup purposes.
Each session will run (1) hour for a total of (3) sessions per run group. There will be no set number of runs. Each group will have (1) hour per session and can run as many times as liked within that session.
Grid will operate similarly to a normal event. You will have a specific grid space and will return to it after each run. Cars will be pulled to the start line IN ORDER by a grid worker, but there will be space to pull around the car in front of you when they elect to skip a run to make setup changes.
