315 Arrive & Drive Challenge Rules & Regulations


The 315 Arrive & Drive Challenge is a 3 x 15 minute race format with alternating grids. All drivers compete in all races. There are 2 classes and one championship. The event is to promote a friendly, competitive, fair and enjoyable race event. All drivers must be 16 years old or over or 14 years old or over with a valid and current MSA licence (subject to race directors approval)



The 315 Arrive & Drive Challenge has two classes – Light & Standard. Drivers entering the race will be weighed and the average weight of all the drivers taking part in the race will be the control weight for the round. There is a 10 minute practice/qualifying period and then 2 x 15 minute races where points will be awarded to produce your position on the grid for the final 15 minute race.


The Karts

The karts for this championship will be the Sodi RT8 390cc karts, maintained and owned by Buckmore Park.


Control weight

The control weight will be the average weight of all drivers competing in the round. Drivers equal or over the control weight will be classed as Standard and drivers under the control weight will be classified as Lightweight. In the interests of grid formation the control weight can be altered by the race director by -2 or +2 kg at his discretion. The drivers are weighed including race suit, helmet, boots & gloves. Drivers will be weighed at random and at any time during the event. Should a driver be found in the wrong class at any time all points for the round will be discounted. The scales provided by DJM will be the official weight for the event.


Arrival & Sign on

Drivers will sign on and attend driver briefing. Any driver not attending driver briefing will not be able to take part. Drivers are required to have completed signing on by 19.15hrs. 



A 10 minute qualifying period to determine G1 (Grid One) will take place. Drivers may change their karts if required during practice/qualifying until the chequered flag has been shown. Karts may not be changed after the chequered flag and before the R1 (Race One) start, unless authorised by the Race Director due to mechanical or safety reasons. 


G1 (Grid One)

G1 will be formed with the fastest qualifying time in pole position and the slowest last.


R1 (Race One)

This will take the form of a 15 minute endurance race with 30 points being awarded to the winner of each class, 29 for second, 28 for third continuing to 1 point. Should there be more than 30 entries all finishers after 30 will receive one point each. The winner is the driver who has completed most laps in the 20 minutes in each class.


G2 (Grid Two)

G2 will be formed with the winner of R1 at the back and the last driver in R1 at the front. The karts will be placed on the grid in order of finishing R1 and the drivers will change karts.


R2 (Race Two)

This will take the same form as R1.


G3 (Grid Three)

G3 will be formed with the driver accumulating the most combined points from R1 & R2 starting on pole position for the final. In the event of a tie the fastest lap of the drivers tied, will be the decider.


R3 (Race Three)

This will take the same form as R1


Round Result

The final race result will be the combined points from R1+R2+R3 in each class. You must finish the race to score points.

Championship points

Points scored in the Round will be counted towards the 315 Challenge championship (unofficial). 8 out of 10 rounds scored will be counted. There is only ONE championship (example – the winners of Round 1 Standard & Lightweight class will receive 30 championship points each and so will the joint championship leaders). There will be 1 pointed awarded for fastest lap of the night and for Pole after qualifying in both Standard and Lightweight Classes.


Trophies will be provided for the top 3 drivers of each round in each class.
