Note: Regarding Spec Fuel Change

Please note that for this weeks race and for the balance of the season we are reverting back to the spec fuel station as stated in rule 21.9 of the 2022 Rule Book.

The station is the ESSO station located at 1129 Hwy 5, Dundas, ON, L9H 5E2.

As a reminder:
– The fuel has to be 91 Octane
– Your race fuel is to be purchased on the morning of the race, not the night before.
– Ensure that you purge the line of any fuel left over from the last customer, to ensure you have the right fuel (recommend purging at least 2 litres).
– Always make sure your gas tank is clean to avoid contamination.

Waivers 

Make sure to complete your waiver before coming to the track!
Waivers must be completed electronically for this race season by all participants, mechanics, and volunteers – if you are going to be on the grid at all this season you must complete a waiver! We will not be accepting any paper waivers.
 
Annual waivers can be completed at https://waterloorkc.speedwaiver.com/nigjl
 
Please be sure to complete this waiver and bring a screenshot of the confirmation to the track each race day. We will be checking that waivers are completed at registration each morning and handing out wrist bands to drivers, mechanics, and volunteers that have completed the waiver.
 
We will be checking wrist bands to ensure that anyone who is on the grid or track has completed a waiver and entering the grid without signing the waiver will have repercussions. 

 Important housekeeping items…

  • Pre-Tech form: the pre tech form has updated for 2022 and posted on WRKC website under documents, please make sure you print some off and hand in each event prior to going on track.
  • Registration: Registration on a regular race day will open at 7am. At this time, we will be only accepting cash or cheque at registration. Registration fees: $65.00 for a registered member, $85.00 non-members
  • Top 5 Drivers must go straight to Tech after scaling their Kart
  • Covid 19 Update: Wearing of masks is not mandatory, but we ask all participants to respect those that choose to do so.
  • Volunteer Policy: WRKC is a non-profit and completely run by volunteers. We rely on our members to help with all areas of running a race day, this is from track set up to track tear down. With volunteers helping this allows us to keep are race day fee’s considerably lower than any other track in Ontario. We will be enforcing rule 14.8 this year as noted below. See website for our complete 2022 Rule book under the document tab. 14.8 Volunteering: It is the responsibility of the drivers and/or family members (for drivers under the age of 12) to volunteer for 15 minutes assisting in the weekly tasks required to operate a race day. One class will be selected weekly for mandatory participation (i.e. Track clean-up). Failure to comply may result in a 10-point penalty. Regrettably the WRKC Board of Directors find themselves in a position that they are going to have to start taking more action to enforce this rule.
  • A class may be picked and a roll call conducted to ensure all drivers are at the drivers meeting.  FAILURE TO ATTEND THE DRIVERS MEETINGS WILL RESULT IN THE DRIVER STARTING FROM THE BACK OF THE GRID FOR THE NEXT 2 HEATS (RULE 4.10).

Rules Reminders

Protests

Section 8 of the rule book deals with protests.  Protests in general can be broken down into 3 categories, technical protests, competition infractions, and penalties resulting from issues arising from violations of the spirit and intent rules.  In all cases a protest must be filed with any of the following: Race Director, Pit Steward, or Chief Scorer.  To ensure your protest is dealt within the time frames required don’t delay and don’t leave it with any other officials other the three listed.

The timing for filing a protest is critical if you find yourself in a position to use the process make sure you understand when a protest needs to be filed.  This is to ensure that any parties that are required to adjudicate the process, or those who have knowledge of the matter, can be involved.  This is critical to insure a fair decision is made for all concerned.

Protests must be filed before the next round of heats are started. If the protest relates to something that happened in the final heats of the day the process must be filed 30 after the results are posted.  Protests that are non-technical will be handled before the next round of heats.  Technical protests will be conducted at the end of the day. 

All protests must be accompanied by the protest fees as stated in rule 8.4.   A rule violation (non-technical) is $100.00 and a Technical violation protest is $200.00.

With regards to Post Race Technical Inspections a protest will fall into 1of 3 of levels which are defined in detail in section 8.  A summary of the levels is as follows:

Level 1 protest are for any issues arising from a post race inspection.  They should be brought to the attention of the Head Technical Delegate.  If they find the issue is a violation of the rules they will issue a notice of infraction (verbal or written).  The competitor can protest this decision.  This will elevate the protest to a level 2 process.  The protest must be filed at the track and before post race tech results are declared as official.

Level 2 protests are for issues that can’t be resolved between the technical inspectors and competitors.  In this case the matter will be decided on by members of the club executive board.

They will review the situation and discuss it with any parties that they feel will help them make a final decision.  Level 2 protest have to be made at the track and prior to the tech results being declared as official. The rule book is very clear in stating that no exceptions to this will be allowed.  Every effort is made to consider and deliver a decision on the protest at the track, however in some rare cases where the tech volunteers or race officials aren’t able to stay they may be held over to be dealt with as soon as possible.

If a level 2 process can’t be decided by the executive members present it will be elevated to a level 3 protest.  Level 3 protests will be dealt with at the next scheduled board meeting.  The board of directors will discuss the protest and the final decision will be determined by a vote of the board members present.  The matter is considered complete and binding at that time.

To facilitate the process of filing a protest a form is available on the WRKC website. Copies of the form may be available at the  track in the container.  Most competitors will never need the form, but as time is of the essence having a copy at the track will help with the process if the need arises.

Note: The above is a summary of the rule. The WRKC 2022 rule book should be consulted if you have any questions regarding the rule or require more information.
