NKRA aim to run a National Championship to give the club driver a Championship that will not cost a fortune to do – we try to organise rounds within ordinary Club meetings that should not involve large entry fees, travelling costs etc. We will again run a Southern Championship a Northern Championship & a Scottish Championship, offering superb trophies for each Championship. Qualifiers will be invited to attend our Grande Final (alternating between The North and the South, depending on the yearly involvement/amount of entries in each area), where the best from North England & Wales and South England & Wales will meet. The overall Winners receive magnificent trophies and awards and prizes…..
The Cost to You
The registration fee to join the Championship is £60. You will receive a pack with entry forms for each round – the entry fee is the normal Club entry fee plus £3.00 which the club returns to NKRA. You must also be a member of a club which is affiliated to NKRA. With your registration pack, you will receive two NKRA stickers – one which must be displayed on the front nassau panel of your kart during each Championship round, the other on the front of your helmet. All monies go to the Trophy fund: no one involved in the organization of this championship is paid anything to run this Series.
How Is It Scored?
There are five qualifying rounds. The best four of which count towards Regional Championship. In the event of a tie, the dropped scores will come into Play. The Grande Final is held over two days, Saturday and Sunday. Competitors will be given 3 penalty points for each regional round in which they did not compete, these will count towards their overall score in the Grande Final, the competitor may receive a maximum of twelve points. (At these Grande Finals the lowest score wins)
- Pole 0 points;
- 2nd= points,
- 3rd = 3 points etc
- 4th = 4 points and so on……..
- to last place starter.
`B` Finalists carry on from end of `A` (eg. if 20 + 4 on grid in `A` , then `B` Final winner placed to back of `A` scores 21; 2nd =22; 3rd = 23 4th = 24; 5th in `B` Final scores 25; etc to last place) Race Results score: 1st = 0 points; 2nd = 2 points; 3 = 3points & so on to last place finisher, non qualifying `B` Finals carry on 1 point after last place in `A` Final. e.g. if 24 in `A` Final with 4 having moved up from `B` then 5th in `B` scores 25 points; 6th = 26 points etc.) Exclusions from Final = 50 points. Non attendance = 100 points. Thus 50 % of total score is dependant upon the race Result & 50 % upon qualification, allowing drivers who have poor heats or a problem in the final to still achieve a score.
The Grande Final is usually held over two days – Saturday and Sunday.
