WHAT YOU NEED TO TRAVEL

We are all very excited to get the 2020 karting season truly up and running, but navigating the web of COVID-19 regulations may seem intimidating. That’s why we have decided to create the ultimate guide to the 2020 Rotax karting season!

TRAVEL

Before competitors can travel to out-of-province venues, they need a letter Travel Permission Affidavit.

  • In order to obtain this letter, they need to enter for the race. (iDube Invite and Letter to MSA approving Motorsport Events)
  • The organising club will then provide a formal invitation to travel to and participate in the event.
  • This formal invitation should be taken to your nearest police station where they will issue you a Travel Permission Affidavit.
  • This affidavit will be essential when travelling and booking accommodation.
  • Each driver may be accompanied by a maximum of 3 nominated people. This includes mechanics, parents, team managers etc.

Air Travel: Most airlines will require your travel permission affidavit and a medical declaration supplied by the airline or done online when booking flights. It’s best to thoroughly read each airline’s requirements before booking.

In the 2020 SARMC Rotax National Championship, all competitors can drop 4 heats. This in effect means that each competitor needs to do only two nationals, one of which needs to be the Zwartkops round as it is a double header event.

TYRES

  • In order to save all competitors money during these difficult economic times, we will be limiting tyres for all national events to one set (new or used) for practice and one set (new) from qualifying onwards.
  • Practice tyres need to be scanned before the first official practice session and checked before or after each session.
  • Bambino, Micro, Mini and Junior Max may qualify and race on the same set of tyres used in official practice if they choose to do so.
  • Micro, Mini and Junior Max competitors may choose to order a set of qualifying/race tyres from the organisers.
  • All other classes have to order a set of tyres from the organisers with their race entry.
  • Classes using D5 will race on the D5 CIK tyres which are easily idetifiable by the yellow band.

Happy Maxxing!
