|The karts at VLK are racing karts capable of high speed, and for that reason safety is the first priority. The following are some of the rules and regulations that you must follow. You will be briefed before you get onto the track but we like to be up front on acceptable behavior before our customers arrive.|
|These Sodi racing karts will go much faster than the track will allow so you will need to use all your skills to stay out of the wall and off other karts. You must use your brakes to get through some corners. Your left foot is for the brake and right foot is for the gas. Don’t push both at the same time. We require you to wear closed-toed shoes. Also, you will need to keep both hands on the wheel, ten and two o’clock. No Bumping other karts and stay off the walls!|
The VLK owners and staff are dedicated to providing a great racing environment to the first-timer, the league racer andthe seasoned professional. In that spirit, we allow you to go as fast as you are capable without hitting other karts or the wall.
The perfect lap has never been run here, so come on out, get in the kart and give it a try.
Most importantly, have fun!!!
|The picture below illustrates the results of 2 types of mistakes:|
|SLIDING SIDEWAYS (by entering a turn too fast.)|
|A DIVE BOMB (putting a 4 foot wide kart into a 2 foot gap) is almost always followed by a t-bone, followed by rib injury. Resist the temptation.|
During the race your track official communicates with you using the flags and signs shown below:
A yellow light during the race tells you to be aware of a problem on the track, look ahead and slow in the area of the incident and do not pass another kart on a yellow.
The checkered flag is the end of the race. Slow down, do not pass, do a cool down lap and then pull into the pit or take other direction from the track official.
