Q. Are there points earned and how does that work?
A. Yes, Drivers earn points for each race which are tallied to determine the weekly winner and then the points are totaled at season's end to determine the season's champion in each division. A point is also earned for the fast lap of the race.
Q. How is it determined which division I will race in and what are the different divisions?
A. The 3 divisions are as follows:
GT1- Experienced Racer at Indoor Karting (50+ races) or other forms of racing with significant time on the Andretti Track.
GT2- Moderate Experience at Indoor Karting (20-30 races) or other forms of racing with little time on the Andretti Track.
GT3- Very little road racing experience of any kind but with some races at Andretti. (10-15)
Drivers will be observed at a mandatory practice or private session prior to the race in a kart that has been tested to form a baseline for comparison of the drivers skills. Fast laps do not guarantee the highest division as racing background and experience are also very important. Drivers will progress through the ranks usually from season to season, but occasionally drivers will be consulted about being moved to another division should it be determined they would be a better fit in another division.
Q. Can I race in more than one division?
Q. What happens if I miss a race?
A. Each driver can drop his/her two lowest scores so the zero points of a no show is dropped.
Q. When are the races and when do I need to arrive?
A. The races are on Saturday mornings (Check the schedule for exact dates) and if you are registered for practice arrive before registration, drivers' meeting, and the race.
