General Information

The DKC Spring League will start again.
This competition will take place on the circuit of Antwerp Karting in Wilrijk, Antwerp. This is the only outdoor race circuit in the area. We race there with ordinairy "Rental karts'. The fun of an outdoor track is that weather conditions have a direct impact on the outcome of the race. Starting with a dry track and halfway through a rain storm is a guaranteed success and lots of fun

Each game lasts one hour. The starting grid for the first race will be decided by lottery, with the exception that the first three of the JPR Winter League (2013/2014) start with one lap down. From the second game on, the grid is drawn on the basis of the results of the ranking. This means that the leaders in the standings will start as last, and the lowest ranked as first on the grid. The drivers with one or more rounds penalty start from the pits.

Karts are assigned by lot to the participating teams / riders.

Minimum average weight is 75 Kg per team, weighed in race clothing and helmet. If the average team weight between 65 kg and 75 kg, it is mandatory to have one extra stop. If the average weight of the team is less than 65 Kg than two additional stops are required. The minimum weight may also be compensated with "lead sheet", the team has to buy it themself. (Of course, the additional stops are then not required)
Before the series of races will begin each team is weighed, a change in team composition or upon request, weighed again.

This competition can have up to 16 participating teams. A team can consist of several persons with a maximum of four.
In our regular competation we have several expirianced DKC members, who form single driver teams. It is recommended though for new drivers to form teams, i.e. more drivers preferable 4.
For each team there is always one mandatory kart exchange, the exchange takes about 30 seconds. Teams consisting of one single driver must do a dummy exchange by entering the pits, get out of their kart, walk half a circle around the kart and enter on the other side and wait for the signal to drive on. There may only be changed after 20 minutes game . (This is to prevent changes immediate after the start.) Whether or not use is made of the following change procedure, depends on the participation of the kart rental owner and its track officials:

Open pitlane after 20 minutes in the match and it will close after 40 minutes game, upon entering the pit lane there are two karts ready. Get into the next available kart, the transponder will be changed by an official (this is determined by the organizer) and may then leave the pitlane again after 30 seconds. Time is tracked such that everyone has the same switching time. Those who require additional stops due to weight may change after the regular period. Then the procedure as above is to be followed, i.e. no kart and transponder change.

Winner of a heat is the team which has driven the most laps according the computer of the track.

The first three classified in a heat, get the next heat a handicap of 1-round. Ie, They start next heat one round later. This is cumulative so it is throughout the competition and build up like a windmillstone tied to your kart ...
