8.3 Method of Starting for RQR Heats, Pre-finals, Finals and for Grand Finals

          Class        Start type
          Cadet        Standing - using flags - double grid
          Junior       Rolling - using flags - single line
          Senior       Rolling - using flags - single line

Rolling Start :
    a) Karts will line up in a single line in accordance with their grid positions. The Karts will be
        separated by one kart length in front and the rear of the kart from each other, this gap will
        be maintained during warm up and formation lap behind the pace kart. The pace of the
        warm up and formation laps will be controlled by the pace kart behind whom the first grid
        position kart will maintain a distance of at least 3 metres (approximately 10 feet)
    b) The driver must maintain his grid position until the starting signal has been given. Failure
        to do so may incur a penalty. The starter will be in a position near the starting line. A

       driver not in his correct grid position should signify by raising his hand above his head.
       Hands raised unnecessarily will incur a penalty. The field will complete one full warm up
       lap in a single line prior to the formation lap before the start signal is given. It is the
       driver’s responsibility to retain his grid position and the starter is not obliged to allow any
       additional formation lap to allow a driver who has lost his place to regain it.
    c) Weaving to warm up tyres during the warm up lap is permitted
    d) Weaving to warm up tyres during the formation lap is prohibited
    e) The starter will give the start signal as soon as he is satisfied with the formation. It is
       forbidden for drivers to accelerate until the front kart has crossed the yellow acceleration
       line painted on the track or the start signal has been given, whichever occurs first.
    f) In the event of karts breaking formation before the start of a race or not complying with
       the requirements of Rule 19.19 the event may be stopped at the discretion of the Starter
       and / or Clerk of the Course / Stewards. The offending driver or drivers may be

Acceleration & Start Lines

            1. Acceleration Line : A Yellow line painted on the track 25 meters prior to the start
               line. This is known as the acceleration line. When karts are approaching the
               start line in anticipation of a start, it is forbidden for drivers to accelerate until the
               front kart has crossed the yellow acceleration line.
            2. Start Line : A white line across track, which may also be the finish line.

weight of 2 kgs will be used, taking the weight to 41 kgs.

as judge of fact, who may take whatever procedures he deems necessary to achieve an accurate
measurement. Refer to the relevant chapter (5. Classes to compete) for minimum race weights.
