All competitors are encouraged to obtain an IKF Rule Book and keep it in your pits during the event
All of our workers are family, friends and volunteers who do their best to make your experience at our events as fun and entertaining as possible. They are not there to take verbal abuse.

If it's fun, leave it in the trailer. You're welcome to bring rides for after the races, but when the kart engines start, the toys need to be put away. Exceptions are made for disabled persons.
We don't have a lot of room at the facility. We encourage everyone to limit the number of vehicles within the pit area. Once the races have started, there are no vehicles allowed to enter the pit, unless guided an official.
When was the last time you saw a gokart at a dog show? Leave your pets at home where it's cool and quiet.
Alcohol in the Pits
No open alcoholic beverages in the pit area during practice or racing. There's plenty of time for that afterwards.
Remember that we are here for the kids. Misconduct will not be tolerated. If you have an issue, take it up with the race director when he is available. Do not enter the track area to talk to an official.

Please respect their facilities, keep an eye on your children and stay within the track area. All other areas of the fairgrounds are off limits unless invited to another event on the premises.
