The rules and procedures set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish acceptable requirements for such events. As with any set of rules or guidelines, Hampton Roads Kart Club (HRKC) Board of Directors reserve the right to add, amend, suspend, or adjust any rule or procedure which they deem necessary to aid in the production of racing. This will be done primarily for purposes of maintaining safety and fair competition for all. The HRKC Board of Directors also has the right to meet and decide on class participation of any member, based on age and prior race experience. This class assignment can be adjusted at the discretion of the HRKC Board and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
The omission of any rule or guideline does not authorize any participant to assume legality. It is better to get clarification of a rule rather than be disqualified by assuming. Any rule or area not specifically covered in the HRKC rulebook will be enforced based on the latest NKA Technical manual. Safety of our drivers, crew members, race fans, and track officials is our number one priority at HRKC. We ask you for your help and cooperation regarding this very important matter. Your safety is our priority. Enjoy the sport, have fun, and be safe.
Important: Competitive racing can result in injury and/or death to the participant. No expressed or implied warranty of safety shall result from publication of, or compliance with these rules and/or regulations. They are intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to participants, spectators, or others.
Assumption of Risk: Participants assume full responsibility for any and all injuries sustained, property damage, and death at any time while on the race premises or in route to or from. No participant will have any claim for expenses or damage against HRKC, its sponsors or officials regardless of negligence. No insurance on vehicles in pits, infield, or parking lot. The primary responsibility for the safe condition and operation of a kart rests with the owner and/or driver.
Participation: The club shall inspect competing karts. Such inspection does not deem a kart/kar safe and free from defects. Anyone may inspect the race course. By participating, you deem the race course acceptable for competition. These rules will be in place unless specifically overridden in this document. All club members are encouraged to obtain a NKA Tech Manual and to learn the rules. You may obtain a manual from a local kart shop or directly from NKA. As we are racing in a “club” environment, the HRKC Officers reserve the right to interpret these NKA rules based on “Spirit and Intent”. Sportsmanship and fair-play will be our guiding principles in interpreting exactly what “Spirit and Intent” is. The NKA definition of “Spirit and Intent” can be found in NKA Rule #10.1.1.
