Who is ready to work up a sweat? We’re hosting the longest individual drive race we’ve done yet.
The Full Throttle Ironman 75 will take place on Thursday, February 21st. The race is 75 laps for individual drivers, no teams this time!
-Starting grid will be determined by a random draw.
-Each driver must complete 2 pit stops that will be timed with our 4-second pit-stop boxes. Failure to stop where the driver can reach the stop box button will result in that driver needing to repeat the pit stop.
-Each driver must make a kart change during the race. The Full Throttle crew will determine when each driver pits for a kart change. Seatbelts must remain buckled until the kart is completely stopped.
-The start will be a LeMans start on the front straight: Drivers will run from one side of the front straight to the other, where their kart is parked and running. The driver will jump in the kart and buckle the seatbelt. Only once the seatbelt is buckled and BOTH of the drivers hands are on the steering wheel can the driver accelerate. Drivers will have no assistance with seat belts on this start, but will be able to prep their seatbelt as desired. Drivers will be given time to practice their starting strategy.
-Upon entering the pits for any reason, the driver must come to a complete stop in the designated stop box before accelerating down pit lane. Pit lane speed limit must be kept to a walking pace. The seatbelt must be buckled and BOTH of the drivers hands must be on the steering wheel before leaving the pit box.
-In the case of a caution, the field will be held at Start/Finish, starting with the leader, until the caution is resolved and any ensuing penalties are assessed. The race will resume at Turn 2 by a single file rolling restart.
-Penalties assessed by the race officials are not open for protest.
-The race will be limited to 45 minutes in the event of multiple cautions and delays.
-10 drivers will be accepted. After this, additional drivers will be put on a wait list. When 8 drivers are on the wait list, we’ll add a second race and start a new wait list. In the event of multiple races, drivers will be assigned to races based on previous fast lap times.
