Latest July Race Meeting Information
Dear Racers & Members,
Please see the attached guidance from Motorsport UK, food will be available from the Kart Republic Café and they have strict procedures in place to ensure your safety and theirs.
Judicial -Protests can be lodged during the Race Day to email@example.com – follow Motorsport UK guidance on how to do this.
Judicial & Notice Board – Some useful information ahead of the event: The stewards will be located in the Kart Republic Café – access to the Stewards area will be via the Womens toilet stairs at the side – You should press the door bell which will be sign posted and wait to be called in by one of the Stewards, the Child Safeguarding Officer will be located in this area also. To enter the Kart Republic Café wither it be for Food or for a visit to the stewards you must do so wearing a mask as is mandated by the Scottish Government, this will include areas like the Race Results/notice board which will be in the old Stewards room waiting area 1 in 1 out please!!
Restircted Areas – On Race day access to and from the dummy grid and parc ferme will be staffed (there will be a sanitisation station here also) – no mask or helmet on? Means no access! You will be sent away to get a mask before being allowed access to these busy area’s – Racing will not stop or wait for you to get your mask either! So planning ahead is really important. Please do not abuse our volunteers if they send you away! Abuse will not be tolerated and will result in a referral to the Stewards and a likely send home. Only enter the scrutineering bay on invite by the scrutineers – weighing is available on the Saturday and 3lap practice – no access after this unless requested by the Scrutineers.
ONLY – 1 mechanic/assistant & 1 driver permitted in parc ferme and the dummy grid.
Signing- On – You MUST – sign on using the links emailed to you for Alpha, 1 for the Saturday (WSKC Insurance) and 1 for the Sunday (Motorsport UK Insurance). The club will not have transponders available for hire in July – Larkhall Circuit may have some it is worth asking in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org however it’s a good investment to have your own! Please email transponder numbers to email@example.com before next Friday if you havent entered online.
SCRUTINEERING – This one has a lot of people confused, will there be scrutineering? In a word YES – Eligibility only. Safety Scrutineering is going to be a self declaration with advice available from The Scrutineering team. You must complete your Motorsport UK garage online and submit your Scrutineering kart online ahead of the event, Need to make a change? This is fine go and see the Scrutineering team on the Sunday morning with the relevant information and they have access to update this for you. If you do not complete your scrutineering online, you cannot race! – It is worth logging on to the entry system just now to check you have no issues! If you do drop me an email/call and I will do my best to help but if you leave it to last minute theres no guarantee we can fix it in time.
