A comprehensive Rulebook will be online soon. These rules will then be introduced into the World Karting Association 2019 rulebook. Some of the Highlights within the High School Division are:
Rule 5.0.1 Spirit and Intent
If this rule book does not say you can, then you cannot. Guidelines in this rulebook are all subject to the term “Spirit and Intent” and apply to all facets of the sport of karting, drivers, crew members, school/organizations and the likes. This rulebook is a living document and may be changed at any time, including up to the green flag at any event. The rulebook is for Fair and Equitable competition.
