Announcement:

Route 106 RacePark will resume racing activities in Pembroke NH for the 2014 racing season. The Kart Racing Speedway Series will run a 6 race series and will be adopting an affordable engine package and entry fees. We would like to see the track become a popular destination for families looking to enjoy the entry level of motorsports.

In order to help grow our program with new racers and differentiate ourselves from other racing programs, we will adopt the growing use of the Briggs & Stratton LO206 class structure and rule set. We feel the engine package is affordable at less than half the current market rate for the equivalent WKA or AKRA blueprinted engine. In addition, the sealed motor is easier to perform technical inspection and for racers to maintain. WE will NOT be racing traditional blueprinted classes to ensure that there is no dilution of class structure. Minimizing class options will ensure that individuals getting into the sport know exactly what class they will be running.

Class Structure will be as follows:

All Engines to conform to Briggs and Stratton LO206 Rule Set

 

Not unlike other racetracks that have adopted the use of the LO206 engine package, we have adopted the use of a specified Briggs and Stratton T4 racing oil for our program. We will also be utilizing a pump gasoline fuel that will be sold at sign in at the current market rate it was purchased at. Everyone will use track fuel for practice and racing activities. Surplus fuel can be utilized in your car to get home. We will also institute a yellow Vega tire rule. These rules in combination with a max diameter jet rule will ensure a level playing field for all racers. The only local option deviation will be the open clutch allowance.

All non-engine related rules will refer back to the AKRA rule set. Current AKRA rules can be purchased directly from AKRA. Minimum chassis tubing dimensions, measurements, and wheel base type rules will be enforced consistently to ensure a level playing field for all racers.

Behavioral and operation policy rules will be released shortly. A good rule of thumb is to expect similar rules to what is already expected at other area tracks.

To ensure competitive parity, we are pleased to announce we have enlisted the help of Bill Callen and Wayne Helliwell Sr to be our race consultants/directors. Bill and/or Wayne will oversee all racing activities on race day. Bill’s experience is valuable as the active General Manager of Lee USA Speedway and Wayne has been a successful racer in the northeast for many years. Due to their busy schedules, the duty of race director will be split between them. In order to maintain an affordable experience, corner workers will be a volunteer positions by crew members until kart counts have established enough to resume having paid corner officials. This is a proven method in many other organized activities, and with lower cost comes heightened responsibility for the participants. Medical and critical staff will be maintained to ensure racer and crew safety. We are very excited about our partnership with Lee USA Speedway and hope to grow our sport through a continued relationship with this community Friday night track.

We recognize that racing is an expensive sport. We are going to charge a minimal racing entry fee to our events. We will be charging 30.00 entries for kart and driver, with a 10.00 pit pass for crew members. Fuel will be extra, charged at a rate of what was paid for it. There will be no other unexpected cost at the gate. An exception may be if the race is moved toward night time in later summer months. Racing under the lights is an expensive option so we will stick to daytime racing. Our goal is to decrease both the entry and equipment cost of our sport to ensure its growth.

By standardizing our rules with other area tracks with equivalent goals, our customers will have options if traveling is something they would like to do. We will also have loaner engines for people to give our track a try if they feel it’s something they would like to do.

We will NOT be having special money race events. We will have a special event to support our community, raise awareness for a charity, or for those less fortunate.

Our race day schedule will also be altered from traditional formats. We will open the gates at 10am, racing activities to begin at 11:00. We will have one round of practice on race day. There will be two inverted field heat races, and a feature race. The RT106 racetrack is available for private practice with appointment.

Tentative Racing Schedule will be as follows:
