Briggs & Stratton Racing Engines

WRS changes from 2017

Briggs and Stratton GeneratorsThere are several notable changes for 2018 that we wanted to highlight. 

  • Race dates – March 1st  (allowing backdating) through October 21st.
  • Each club in good standing* will have access to purchase a 5,000 Watt generator which currently retails for $850 for $350 DELIVERED (below cost) or a 2,200 PSI Pressure Washer which currently retails for $350 for $200 DELIVERED (below cost) for a fundraising item or banquet giveaway.  If both units are available it will be up to each track which they would like to purchase.
  • Racers can participate in more than one class at the same track or club BUT only their top total score will be eligiable for a prize (multiple prizes will not be awarded to any one racer at a single track or club).   IF a racer competes at two DIFFERENT tracks or clubs then they will be eligible for multiple prizes based on their final points.
  • EACH track is required to submit to us an AMB finishing file in a CSV format.  Tracks without an AMB system will be given a CSV file to fill out final finishing order, etc.
  • Classes - Each track MUST use the following class names EXACTLY in order for updated automation in our program to filter correctly.  Corrections will NOT be made if errors are the result of incorrectly labeled classes.  IF you have questions please ask before not after submitting results.
  • 2018 Classes:  Junior 1, Junior 2, Junior Spec, Senior Spec, Senior, Senior Medium, Senior Heavy, Masters, Womans
  • National rankings will now determine prizes.
  • Prizes will go to 100th place.
  • Points calculations (a reminder from 2017):
  • Senior/Masters points will now be based off of 11 karts verses 10 and Juniors 10 karts verses 7 karts for max points.
  • This change is a reflection on the growth of our program while still keeping smaller but growing programs in the hunt for prizes.
  • Bonus Category – We will now award the winner of the pre-final on a WRS race an extra .25 of a point.  Tracks make sure to circle or identify your pre-final winner to gain this bonus!
    • This provides continued incentive going into the final races for competitors who might find themselves in a points tie.
  • Final tie-breaker – In case of a tie, if total points accumulated in the ‘finishing position’ category does not determine a winner, the ACTUAL number of karts finished ahead of for your 7 races will be used.
