History of my-KART

The beginnings

I first organised a kart event when I was in Price Waterhouse in 1994.

This was after the height of the Prost vs Senna battle in 1993, and the emergence of one Michael Schumacher. We also had Mansell making a cameo. The racing fever for us started long before Malaysia even dreamt of hosting an F1 race. Then I read about a developer in Templar's Park who had converted a piece of land into a temporary karting circuit. We organised two races there before the track closed down once the developer got his permit to develop that very land.

The Founders

Since then, my infrequent karting activity stopped for a while, and I soon joined Shell. It was only in 1998 at an impromptu kart race at Batu 3, that I found a karting kaki in the name of Shahrul Azlan. We then attempted to form a karting club within the sports club, but failed to get it off the ground.

First attempts

Fast forward to 2001, and I took over as sports club chairman and immediately introduced karting, with Shahrul Azlan the chief organiser. The first season was a resounding success with about 20 drivers turning up each event. This was no doubt helped by the greater awareness of motorsports in Malaysia -now that we are an F1 host country. 2002 was another successful year with even more participants from within Shell.

In early 2002, I was aching to having a karting reunion for my former PW buddies. We did one at Mofaz Penchala, and were amongst the first to race there. Off an on, I would organise some informal races with some of my karting buddies. And so did Azlan. By mid year, we were aching to have joint karting event to make it more meaningful as opposed to the usual free style events. We soon saw an opportunity to develop a network of karting buddies outside Shell.

The birth of my-KART

Thus in August 2002, my-KART (independent of any company sports club) was formed from a mailing list which combined our karting buddies. We used Yahoo!Groups as the mailing list to manage our communication and event announcements for amateur karters primarily in Klang Valley.

2003 was our first full season of karting with 9 races in total. In 2003, we ran one category (80cc & funkart) which attracted around 15-20 karters each event. During 2003, we were able to -

  1. test the interest level
  2. gauge the level of experience and skill
  3. learn the requirements in organising kart events for people we generally did not know until the events
  4. understand the safety issues and how we can manage them develop a core group of karters and develop the relationships

Early in 2004, we organised 4 half-day coaching sessions over a weekend at Sepang. 22 drivers from the group responded and had the opportunity to learn driving techniques on both the Yamaha 100ccs and the Rotax Max Seniors. The feedback from those who participated exceeded all expectations.

It was clear then, that we were on to something with my-KART: there was a strong interest in motorsports that was yet to be tapped. The problem: affordability and accessibility.

my-KART today

Given the increasing interest, we introduced the K2 category for 2004 and raised the performance bar to the 100cc category. Yet, we maintained the low cost entry level. This continues to attract very strong interest till today. For 2009, we are running exclusive K2 rental karts dedicated for the my-KART DRIVERS' series.

In 2008 we started the first full season of K1 races run on rental 125cc Rotax Juniors and on CRG road rebel chassis. The K1 series was a resounding success with drivers becoming more serious about their karting and showing some great skill, competition but yet retain the camaraderie.

We now run three race categories for each event:

  1. the K3 category for newcomers (rookies) and first-timers to karting - races are on 80cc 2-stroke rental karts.
  2. the K2 category are for those who have been karting for a while and known to the my-kart community through regular participation in K3 and K2 series - races are on exclusive 100cc 2-stroke rental karts.
  3. the K1 category are for those who are the core of my-kart and are true regulars of my-kart and have been karting for a while - races are on exclusive Rotax Junior Max 125cc 2-stroke rental karts.

Event participation is accepted through referrals (member introduce member) with very little publicity. All participants are to subscribe to this website. Total website subscribers now stands at close to 1100 people (as at January 2009) which is around 20 times the number at the end of 2003. Each event currently attracts more than 60 karters in total for the K1, K2 and K3 categories.

The future

Organisationally, my-kart operates both as a club "Kelab my-KART Selangor" registered with the National Sports Council and a company "mykart Promotions Sdn Bhd". The club are the main organisers of the member & grassroots events, whilst the company retains ownership of the my-kart intellectual property and commercial rights. Moving forward, we shall be expanding my-KART's awareness to the wider public.

We are currently growing our group of karters in the various categories, whilst encouraging talented karters to move up the ranks to K2 and K1. We are beginning to see some subscribers getting more serious about their karting. There are more opportunities awaiting us, and we believe we are at the forefront.

Happy karting and safe racing!

Cheers!

About my-KART - who are we?

my-KART.org, or my-KART is a group of people who have the passion for racing and karting in particular. It organises an amateur karting (used to be known as go-kart) league in the Klang Valley, Malaysia. This karting league is called the my-KART DRIVERS series. The emphasis is on safe & fun racing, in a competitive but friendly environment.

A Yahoo! mailing list was established in August 2002 at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/my-kart/to serve as the initial communication medium for members. However, this website serves as the primary platform for communications to members and the wider public.

Read about my-KART's history.

Our vision & philosophy

We aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, specifically karting. By popularising karting, we create more awareness & support of motorsports. More motorsports fans will drive increased exposure for motorsports in the country which will in turn attract more sponsors. Attracting sponsors will be the key to talent development and team formations. Thus building the automotive / motorsports industry in the country. Lofty ideals? Perhaps. Nevertheless, the opportunity is here as long as Malaysia is on the major international motorsports calendar.

To do this, my-KART remains close to its origins, particularly for its members and the racing enthusiasts. We focus on the following general principles:

  • affordable & accessible
  • safe & professional
  • fun & exciting competition
  • sustainable & relevant

By doing this, our events -

  • promote safety
  • build fellowship, friendship and networking
  • are easy to join (jump in at the shallow end first)
  • are affordable
  • eliminate the luck of the draw factor common with rental karts
  • create an environment for amateur karters to improve their skills
  • are simply fun fun fun

More information

We will post / upload info documents on this website and on the Yahoo mailing list in the files section. Please feel free to browse our sites and participate in our discussion forums.

You can also find further reading / reference materials -

Introduction to my-kart - live on TV3 Scoreboard 4th October 2011

Ilyas James and Fikri Rahim of Vertical Speed Racing managed to secure a slot with TV3 Scoreboard's midnight live show to feature karting, my-kart and Vertical Speed Racing Team.

Here is the video clip on Youtube. Thanks to Tham Mun Keat for the video capture & upload.

We had actually planned for about 20minutes, but the time left for us was just 10mins due to other topics which took longer than expected. So we didn't quite manage to share all of our messages.

my-KART Launch 16 June 2007 - "Foundations of Motorsport"

Saturday 16 June 2007
Citykarting Kart Circuit
Shah Alam Stadium

Kelab my-KART Selangor ("my-kart") was officially and publicly launched today with several members of the print and electronic media, with the participation of around 100 amateur karters. The launch event was aimed at creating awareness to inform recreationally active residents of the Klang Valley of the existance of a club that organises high value and low cost year long karting series.

"Shahrul Azlan Ariffin and I started the club because we love the excitement of racing, but did not have the money to venture into competitive karting or circuit racing," enthused club founder and president Fazlur ("Fazz") Rahman.

"With my-kart, now everyone can race," he beemed.

my-kart positions itself as the Foundation of Motorsports by focusing on the casual amateur karting segment. It organises series to help enthusiasts ease into karting and gradually progress upwards by developing skills, particularly in racing conditions.

"Motorsports in Malaysia is a relatively underdeveloped sport. Right now, its participation and appeal is limited to a very elite and select group of people. What we need is a bigger grassroots foundation of enthusiasts, not unlike the people who play football at the local fields on weekends. We need something very affordable and accessible which will popularise grassroots motorsports," Fazz explained.

my-kart organises monthly races for amateurs on an arrive, pay, and drive basis.

"You do not need to commit to buying any karting equipment. Thanks to kart & track operators like Citykarting and Kartquest, we can race on rental karts and not break the bank," Fazz clarified.

"In addition, my-kart emphasises safety and professionalism in everything that it does. We completely believe that safety and professionalism is a state of mind and an attitude that needs to be ingrained in our participants. We spend a lot of time and personal touch to drive this message amongst our participants. That is why you will find that my-kart members have a very strong personal bond with each other. We are racing with trusted people. This is what makes the racing fun and competitive.

my-kart has been organising rental karting events for the casual amateur since 2002. It currently organises a drivers championship series called the KART series. There are currently 3 categories in the KART series today: the K1 category which is run on 125cc karts, the K2 (100cc) and the K3 (80cc) categories. There are 10 events planned for the 2007 KART series. Saturday's event was round 6 of 10.

In addition to the 10 drivers championship events, my-kart also organises a team championship series called the Inter-Company & Car Club championship, or IC3 for short. This series emphasises teamwork, where strategy is more important than individual skill. The IC3 is targeted at company employees, particularly for those companies with brands associated with technology, development and racing, as well as car enthusiasts and car club members. Each team shall race under the company or car brand.

"The IC3 championship is an important series which we believe will widen the appeal of karting to another segment of people who identify themselves to well known brands in the market. The value that these brands can get from IC3 is a linkage to my-kart's ethos of building the foundations of motorsport -the emphasis being on 'foundations'" Fazz informed.

"Karting is the very basic of motorsports, particularly for open wheel or circuit racing. Technique and track experience is possible through karting, whereas it would be more expensive in full fledge circuit racing. It is also the entry level for anybody who wishes to pursue a career in racing. By having more people involved in karting, we create a group of people who start to appreciate motorsports, and indirectly create wider interest and visibility for the sport and industry."

The focus on the casual amateur over the past many years has been a key factor in my-kart's growing popularity. Today it attracts an average of 60 participants per half day event. The key has been low cost, high value with emphasis on safety, professionalism and plain fun racing. Participants do not compete for prizes and the events are currently self funded by participants and unpaid volunteer members.

Moving forward, my-kart aims to expand its appeal, in particular to the student segment by addressing affordability, development and safety aspects through co-operation with the corporate sector.

"Even rental karting is considered an expensive recreation for many, thus limiting local participation. Based on our member feedback we know that there is a high level of interest in karting as a recreation. To some, karting is even a sport of choice. The key is to generate wider and regular publicity for my-kart's activities and in particular the KART and IC3 series. To do this, we seek corporate contribution to help fund the operations cost as we further enhance the safety management and skills development aspects of our events, so that the participation cost to the casual amateur remains low," Fazz stressed.

"In this respect, we would like to thank ING, Shell, TeleVAS, Table Talk and Citykarting Enterprises for the support given for our launch event. Also special thanks goes to His Excellency Lody Embrechts the Ambassador for the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The launch has been a great success and we believe that these companies are paving the way for the role of the corporate sector in social and sports-industry development. The value in the motorsports industry is yet to be tapped and there is enormous growth potential here," Fazz stated in closing.

Further information on my-kart can be found at their official website at http://www.my-kart.org/ or Fazz can be contacted at 019-3855 055. One time membership joining fee is only RM10, and annual subscription is RM120. Family members will enjoy preferential membership rates. Members will enjoy various karting benefits as well as special discounts on related purchases.

Racing for Children - possible charities

Folks - It has been sometime since we discussed my-KART's sub-project "Racing for Children".

I strongly believe that my-KART has an important social role in building for our future. The synergies between "building racing talent" and building our nation is something that can and should be leveraged to great effect. To me we (Malaysia) suffer from a low supply of talent making their way into racing. The root problem is affordability. And given a large percentage of families not being able to spend on luxuries such as karting, the need for my-KART to play a social role is even more important. "Racing for Children" is therefore key. And I would like to thank Brian E for the concept... but I would like to see some fruits of this idea become real.

I would therefore like to stimulate some discussion on this subject with a view to get some clarity on the following points:

  1. how my-KART's Racing For Children can work with existing charities in the country
  2. what charities are available; is there a single over-arching children's charity that can administer the funds generated from my-KART's Racing For Children programme
  3. how should the funds generated be administered
  4. what & how are the tax breaks given to donors (esp corporate donors)
  5. what help do we have (internal and external)?

An open invitation to laying the myKART Foundations

Fellow myKARTers,

I invite all members to participate in building the foundations for myKART as it embarks on its journey towards popularising grassroots motorsports in the 21st century. As is often said, the sky is the limit: for just more than two years myKART has established a reputation as the best kept secret in karting. This should no longer be a secret, and the time is ripe for myKART to be a significant player in the country's motorsports ambitions. This journey will be tough initially, but shall be sustainable and rewarding to all stakeholders.

Therefore, we shall have the 1st myKART Foundation Conference within the next 2 months. All interested myKART members are welcomed to participate in the Foundation conference in a collaborative manner. Those with special links to media and influential figures in the industry will be most helpful.

These "Foundation" members will be tasked with delivering the following:
[list=1]
[*]formalising the vision
[*]formation of the entity
[*]roadmapping the strategies
[*]committing to action plans
[*]setting out member rules
[*]documenting the A-Z manual
[*]financial structure and business model
[/list]

[i]Foundation[/i] members are expected to be able to commit time and resources to this project. Also expect rewards to be deferred until myKART achieves critical mass and sustainable profitability.

I shall be working to identify a suitable location for the Conference. I expect the Conference to last a whole day with a dinner/karaoke to round it up. Costs of the conference will be shared by participants.

Please keep checking this website for the formal event notification, but in the meantime, please register your interest by posting a comment to this topic.

May we all play a significant role in motorsports in the country.

Cheers
Fazz

Section II: my-KART - the brand, company, club(s) and members

This section of the my-KART reference manual aims to describe the overall structure, people and properties of the entities in my-KART:

  • the brand - core purpose, responsibility
  • the founders
  • the company: my-KART Promotions Sdn Bhd
  • the club: Kelab my-KART Selangor
  • the members
  • the tools & processes and Intellectual Property Rights ("IPR")

These document pages will be added as they are developed.

The my-KART brand. purpose. responsibility. values.

The my-KART brand encompasses the following attributes:

  • the logo
  • core purpose
  • responsibilities
  • brand values

The my-KART logo

The my-KART logo depicts a circuit curve ending with a chequered flag. The upward curve of the circuit towards the waving flag indicates a progressive and forward thinking approach. The chequered flag reflects the diversity of grassroots motor-sports. The left part of the logo reflects the targeted grassroots level, and the graduation towards the chequered flag reflects my-KART's approach in developing drivers along the chain to higher levels of motor-sports from amateurs to champions.

my-KART core purpose

my-KART's core purpose is to make racing & karting affordable and accessible to a wider community. We wish to create opportunities for talented racers. To do this, our events need to be safe, fun, professional, competitive, relevant and sustainable.

my-KART responsibilities

We are responsible towards building the local karting and racing community. The customers are next. And this is followed by the bottom line. In this order.

7 brand values

The following are values we promote within the my-kart environment:

  1. unwavering focus on brand purpose and responsibilities
  2. strongly advocate safety and sustainability
  3. respect for others and practice diversity - uphold honour, fairness, dignity & transcend race, colour or creed
  4. act with total integrity and commit to quality & excellence
  5. communicate openly and honestly - we encourage two way communication
  6. practice teamwork - we work in a collaborative manner, leveraging on skills (and diversity) of each other with a singular focus on the objectives
  7. have fun and strengthen bond (family or otherwise)

Relationship between the my-KART brand, company and club

This document attempts to describe the delineation between the club and the company.

The company, my-KART Promotions Sdn Bhd was formed in late 2005. The club was given registration approval by the commissioner of sports late 2006.

Before explaining the link and the demarcation of the two, it is important to firstly understand the overall vision and mission of my-KART. You can read a bit more about my-KART and its history.

Simply put, my-KART aims to make karting accessible to everyone. my-KART aims to do this by creating a platform that is affordable, fun, safe and competitive for its participants & spectators. The key to all this are my-KART's founding members development of the -

  • brand and intellectual property
  • vision and mission
  • tools and properties
  • processes and methodologies
  • philosophy and culture

It is important that these successful elements of my-KART are protected and maintained in a consistent and standardized manner and can be deployed in other parts of the country. As a consequent the best vehicle to protect my-KART's founding elements is in an entity owned by the founders - which is my-KART Promotions Sdn Bhd.

In short, the company owns all the my-KART intellectual property rights (IPR). my-KART requires a platform or media for these activities. Only a club can provide my-KART with this medium for operationalising these my-KART elements.

The club provides members. The club also enables members to further their racing ambitions through affiliation with the motorsports governing bodies - in Malaysia's case AAM. However, the primary objective of the club is to develop the sport for its members, whereas the company's objectives are broader than this.

Kelab my-KART Selangor (2441/2006)

Dear my-KARTers,

As many of you by now know, my-KART's club registeration has finally been approved by the National Sports Commissioner on the 28th November 2006. Naza has been tirelessly following up with the Commissioner since November 2005 and finally set his hands on the approval documents on 6th December 2006. This had been a long wait of just over one year since we submitted the documents for registration.

Kelab my-KART Selangor (official name) is registered under the Akta Pembangunan Sukan 1997 with the Nombor Pendaftaran Kelab: 2441/2006.

I would like to thank Naza for his constant follow up without which, we could have easily have to wait even longer... as many club founders have discovered before. Thanks bro.

The formal registration of the club would allow my-KART to carry out formal activities and gives my-KART the ability to approach other entities for commercial opportunities. In addition to this, my-KART will be eligible to register with AAM and be able to conduct AAM sanctioned events which is useful for attracting participation from corporations and other organisations.

That said, there a number of matters to be deliberated and resolved. The Interim Committee will soon be convening to resolve a few of these matters. For your information the interim committee members are as follows:

postname
PresidentFazlur-Rahman bin Zainuddin
Vice PresidentMohamed Yusnee Rahmat Mohd
SecretaryNazarudin Mohd Nordin
Asst. SecretaryEdy Hazry Mohammed Daud
TreasurerShahrul Azlan
Asst. TreasurerLoke Hon Wai, Steward
Committee MemberAlvin Joseph Nesakumar
Committee MemberBrian Fernandez

The club constitution is attached here for reference. Kindly vet through and provide your feedback here. Also attach for discussion a preliminary org chart (with roles & responsibilities) of the Club committee.

Club membership benefits. Invitation to join.

objective

the purpose of this document is to invite current my-kart members to subscribe to the club membership. in addition to this, this document seeks to explain the benefits of club membership.

background

up to now, my-KART exists as a loose group of people running monthly races. my-KART currently caters for two broad groups of people: (i) the casual karter; (ii) the aspiring racers - young and old.

my-KART's mission of popularising grassroots motorsports is based on (i) making karting affordable; (ii) making the races safe, fun & competitive; (iii) providing karters with a platform to improve their skills; and (iv) doing all this in a sustainable, structured and professional manner.

my-KART also aims to provide even more benefits to its members and to extend this opportunity to those outside of the Klang Valley. To achieve this we need help from the members to continue this drive beyond the current levels.

club membership benefits

the formation of Kelab my-KART Selangor is to ensure member benefits are further enhanced. *please note however, non-paying-members are still invited to join the regular KART and Mega Enduro series (although not at the discount paying-members enjoy). the following are some of the benefits paying-members will enjoy:

  • membership identification. many kart operators attach a significant value on karters coming from my-KART. my-karters can usually enjoy informal benefits from these operators. these operators are comforted that my-karters do not destroy their karts on every other lap. my-karters are also known as regular and loyal karters.
  • sponsorship & fund-raising benefits - tie-ups, drivers' clinic & more discounts. my-KART aims to raise funds and sponsorships for the benefit of its members and to advance its mission of popularising grassroots motorsports. fund raising and sponsorship provides a base fund to introduce further benefits such as drivers' clinics (bringing in experts), performance rewards (free karting trials) and more. sponsorship tie-ups and discounts on sponsor products and services are additional benefits. my-KART aims to leverage its members' contributions towards these activities.
  • discounted prices for my-KART events. loyal my-karters should get discounts on my-KART events. we will be announcing the discounts on the current race event fees in due course.
  • benefits for the family. my-KART will be introducing programmes for my-karters with young children. the committee is in process of developing a K4 series and negotiating with the operators. however, this is subject to demand.
  • club membership to obtain AAM racing license. my-KART is in the process of seeking AAM affiliation. AAM requires all applicants for racing license to be a member of a racing club.
  • other benefits and non-racing activities. my-KART will be producing some merchandise for members at discounts (such as T-shirts, starter packs) and organising other non-racing activities for members and their families.
  • the opportunity to participate and shape my-KART's vision for the sport. enough said.

DISCUSSION DRAFT: membership benefits

please feel free to comment my suggestions. Please pardon my "not proper" business english as I have never written a business proposal before, all my techincal proposal only at point forms biggrin

1. Racing events

1a. K1 - The K1 class will be one of the final stepping stones to a racing career / more serious karting. Initially, we do not expect many participants in K1, but it is still a go status. This class will entail further guidance and allow drivers to move up the ladder in their racing hobby (or career).

The K1 class can be run together with the K2 class if participation falls below 5. This is possible as K2 drivers are somewhat experience and ethical drivers. It is likely to have the JGTC format to allow K1 start ahead followed by K2 karts at the back.

There are currently many owner-karters at CityKarting who do not have an reasonably affordable platform to race their karts -practically running aimlessly- and eventually drop out themselves. The K1 class can be targeted to this group and promote my-kart to even wider coverage.

This class shall start with kart owners. Moving forward, my-KART will be exploring some form of easy ownership scheme, to increase interest particularly from the K2 and K3 drivers. This task is assigned to my-KART Promotion. See below for more on easy ownership.

The K1 series may not run over 10 events -unlike the K2 and K3 series- in order to be easy on the pocket of the K1 drivers.

1b. K2 â€" maintain as current, and promote K2 new blood promoting capable K3 drivers
1c. K3 â€" Beginners and also promotion of capable K4 drivers
1d. K4 â€" NEW. definition needed for K4

If more of the classes created, longer time needed for a day event that should be necessary. Extra activities at lunch time can be organized (subject to discuss)

1e. Endurance - night endurance will be a good and relatively new event to start off. Many of the night karters may not know there is existence of my-kart, it will be a good area of to explore. Suggestion that out of the 6 MEs planned, 1 or 2 should go night endurance.

2. Workshops and Clinics

2a. K1 especially, many of karters looking forward to tune to their personal preference, this is where the area we should look into. Workshop or clinic basically is owner karters gather to have sessions sharing tuning information, just extra activities other the normal Kx 10 races series. Should there is easy ownership scheme offered by M-kart promotion, this workshop/clinic session will be a good bundle and more persuasive activity.

2b. K3 workshop, a separate session conducted by “senior” karters, a simple lesson of track driving with additional time tracking progress (on the same kart). This will be more to personal attention session to beginners. The session can be aided by the 2 seater kart (yellow tanker) at the practical session. Of course kart renting shall be born by trainnees themselves. This is where the special discount rate offer to members from CK comes about in handy. 2 ways beneficial that my-kart trains beginners and also trainers.

2c. Clinic mainly aims for fine tuning, that it has be conducted by experienced karting racer either from inside my-kart (licensed racers, so far can think of 2 they are Jules and Tarmizi), if necessary, hire or honorary invitation.

2d. K4 workshop, similar to K3 workshop.
This aims family gathering. Young driver accompany by parents that helps to promote my-kart for any forth coming events and updates. Is also brings to opportunity to train up new trainer from K3 to be prepared to promote to K2 or K1.

These workshops and clinical session are going to worth the membership drive even so members are not participating any single series at all. Workshop and clinical series work conjunction with special discount rate from CK. Additional benefits to members if we have special deal with other track operators like speedway, sepang and etc. honestly I am more looking forward to langkawi track.

3. Activities and outings

Family outings like convoy to Cameron trip, PD over night stays and etc. With conjunction of these, we could have piggy-back media for the promotion, such as magazine and etc. (leaving this portion to commercial and marketing). MY-KART is registered club, it can seek for relevant authorities to assist convoy ie PDRM.

4. Affiliation

AAM affiliation is a MUST; we can see that is the ultimate request from “potential” members (including myself). Members will gain grand and formal race experience if should my-kart impose rigid regulations towards major events in conjunction with racing governing body such as AAM and or etc. Addtional my-kart will also helps members in acquisition of racing licenses such as MME and sanctioned karting events.

5. Sponsorship

Looking at the direction of car related sponsorship pertaining to my-kart is motorsports orientated. We may not necessary looking for funding. At any major event will be looking forward to variety of sponsorships, banners and or trophies. Hence this will put up good portfolio of MY-KART. These portfolios will benefit to My-kart promotion of invitation to more serious sponsorships.

We can create a link or badge of sponsorship at the main page of forum or even printing new sponsorship on latest updated version of T-shirt, cap and etc. I believe that stimulate at merchandising area a fair bit. 

6. Easy ownership scheme for K1

In reference to the K1 series mentioned above. my-KART will be exploring forms of easy ownership schemes to encourage K2 drivers to take the next step up the karting ladder. One approach is through raising sponsorship which will be done by my-KART Promotion.

The rough idea is to get investors for the 125 karts (can be used karts). The aim is to run K1 series at a reasonable price point and with sufficient commitment and fair returns to all parties: (i) the driver, (ii) my-KART Promotion and (iii) the investor / funder.

The role of my-KART Promotion Sdn Bhd (as distinct from Kelab my-KART Selangor) will be to engage in the commercial activities towards expanding the my-KART vision and mission. The company will be the owner of the my-KART brand and responsible to commercialize it. The company will use the club as an advertising / brand building platform and raise other funders & sponsors. These funds could be channeled towards the easy ownership scheme.

7. Merchandise

As the ultimate objective of my-kart will be event driven club, merchandizing keep to lower priority, however, the standards goodies have to be there like T-shirts, badges, cap or hat, stickers and etc.

my-kart - advanced racers list

Dear my-karters,

i recently spoke to the CEO of the Motorsports Association of Malaysia (MAM, http://www.mam.org.my/). MAM is the Motorsports development body in Malaysia. we talked about my-kart being the development platform for a pool of racing talent in the country. i spoke to him that the talent pool offers opportunities for adults to venture into more serious circuit racing competition, and for youngsters to venture into serious karting competition and open wheel racing.

i would like to get a view of all adult drivers who either -

1/ have participated in national racing events
2/ or plan to participate in national racing events in the near future

these events would included serious karting competitions, track racing (production cars, open wheel etc).

i would like to gather a list of my-kart participants. please provide a list as follows:

Spirit of community, volunteerism and how you can help

It is now January 2012.

We now advance into the tenth year of my-kart's events since our first season in 2002.

Since that time ten years ago, the spirit of my-kart has remained the same. We organise our events because we feel passionate about the sport. Because we want to enjoy ourselves in a safe, fun, affordable but competitive manner. Because we want to help bring others into the sport as easily as possible. We just want more friends, and to meet people who feel the same way about the sport.

We hope within hope that someday, what we do with the sport at the entry level makes a difference. Perhaps someday. Perhaps one day, somebody who dipped their foot in karting via my-kart can go on to greater motorracing achievements at the international level.

That's our dream.

And we hope it is your dream too.

We believe that this needs to be done by all of us together. We want to maintain the purity of our cause, our events, our friendship, and our joy of racing. We also want to keep costs low because we know that this is a significant hurdle for many who love the sport, but cannot afford to be involved. Yet, we want to be financially sustainable because after ten years - we do not want to see the community we have built, just disappear like that.

Which is why we emphasise on volunteerism. We are a community.

Volunteers have been the lifeblood of my-kart for the past 10 years, and we believe it will continue to be so. Volunteers help keep the passion high, and costs low.

Over the years, many of our good friends have helped organise events; promote the events; negotiate with operators & suppliers; come up with ideas and execute them; come up with rules and write them down; identify areas for improvement and implement them; and the list goes on.

As the years pass, many of the familiar faces start to fade away, and new faces come to the fore to carry the my-kart banner.

As such, we wish to appeal to new members, new participants, new friends to step forward to help us move my-kart further forward. We believe many of you can do more than what the founders and early members of my-kart could do.

This is our appeal as we look forward to the next ten years for my-kart. You are all empowered to use the my-kart name for any positive reasons that fulfills my-kart's purpose and help bring about the positive change to the motorsport community.

So do help us make my-kart better.

We wish you a Great New Year 2012.

Forza my-kart!

How can we be better?

Of late, we admit that our events have not met the expectations of our members and participants.

This results in declining participation over the season, and across seasons.

There are many factors contributing to this:

  • quality of equipment
  • event management
  • rules
  • others

We admit that there are many failings. However, we also need your help identify the best way to address these failings.

As mentioned in many parts of this site - please remember that my-kart is based on the volunteer contributions of the community. So as such we welcome criticism, but we welcome more if the criticism comes with solutions & volunteers to help implement.

So in the spirit of improving this in my-kart, fire away!

credits and recognitions to my-kart volunteers

my-kart has been organising amateur karting events since 2001. this was even before the name my-kart existed, but the spirit of accessible and affordable karting in a safe, fun, competitive and professional environment was there already.

much of my-kart's success has been largely down to a lot of volunteer work. we mean A LOT. most of the volunteers help out only because they have the passion for the sport and serving others - to give the opportunity to others to experience competitive racing.

these unsung heroes are the life blood of my-kart. therefore, i am starting a thread to recognise these hardworking, passionate people who have made my-kart what it is in 2009 and onwards.

i will update this main post with the nominations and recognition from all of you. so do keep posting on this thread to appreciate our my-kart volunteers. feel free to echo recognition to certain individuals if you feel them worthy. keep it open, flowing and honest.

my-kart.org as an open source organisation

my-kart can best be described as an open source organisation.

Its origins were simply from the desire of two enthusiasts of having regular racing championships. All the work and efforts since 2001 has been completely voluntary, but importantly done because of a passion to racing, and sharing that passion with a wider group of like minded people. Nothing much is expected in return (except for the occasional championship points for the founders Smile ).

To further understand the philosophy and concept of my-kart, do read this management article by Gary Hamel on Management 2.0 for the Facebook Generation. Management? Yes, do read it and everything that is mentioned in the list describes how my-kart operates.

Ever since its founding, my-kart always encouraged more and more members (and non-members) to volunteer to organise and manage the various events. Additionally, my-kart continues to encourage its members to come up with new ideas for events. Over the years, we've seen the Mega Endurance, the TEAMS series, the Mad Mega Endurance, IRONMAN enduro, and more.

Many of the members have from time to time come up to the committee members with new ideas. my-kart would like to encourage anybody who would like to implement new series ideas to do so under the my-kart banner. New series such as 125cc open, new variations of IRONMAN, Enduro, TEAMS series etc are encouraged. All that we ask is for you to brand your event ideas under the my-kart brand (please ask the committee on how this can be done), and use this website as the primary marketing, networking, collaboration and communication platform - no fee charged at all.

This website can be used as the marketing and promotions tool as well as information reference, or discussion platform etc. Do make full use of this site.

Let us know what you think.

Collection of thoughts on my-kart's model

in many of my discussions with members, i often describe my-kart as an open-source organisation. to give a better illustration, i'd like to have a dialogue with all of you on the subject.

feel free to post some stuff that best describes the model for my-kart.

as a thought starter, in the committee meeting on 2 May 2009 (right after the round 05/2009 DRIVERS series event) at Burger King, Extreme Park Shah Alam, i mentioned a couple of points relating to the my-kart model:

  1. members can add any new series under the my-kart brand provided that it meets the brand standards
  2. that my-kart purpose remains on providing affordable and accessible racing for all (and not focus on profits)
  3. that everybody should participate in making my-kart events achieve these objectives - including newcomers

i shall share some video clips from TED.com to describe some of these ideas. feel free to add and share your thoughts too.

Alex Tabarrok: How ideas trump economic crises -- a surprising lesson from 1929

source: TED.com | http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/525

about this talk:

The "dismal science" truly shines in this optimistic talk, as economist Alex Tabarrok argues free trade and globalization are shaping our once-divided world into a community of idea-sharing more healthy, happy and prosperous than anyone's predictions.

about Alex Tabarrok: http://www.ted.com/index.php/speakers/alex_tabarrok.html

With the hit economic blog MarginalRevolution.com, co-author Alex Tabarrok generates more hits than a summer hailstorm, and sheds light into the darkest corners of the dismal science.

in this talk, Alex Tabarrok describes the phenomena of globalisation on the spread of ideas. He talks about the global village needing to share and collaborate on ideas and idea development so that some ideas can move faster. He uses the Great Depression of 1929 to illustrate the effect of ideas in overcoming adversity. This reflects what my-kart aims to do with its own ideas of popularising grassroots motorsports - on how we can bring malaysia's motorsports to a much higher level. We encourage sharing and collaboration across the board.

Charles Leadbeater: The rise of the amateur professional

source: TED.com | http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/63

about this talk:

In this deceptively casual talk, Charles Leadbeater weaves a tight argument that innovation isn't just for professionals anymore. Passionate amateurs, using new tools, are creating products and paradigms that companies can't.

about Charles Leadbeater: http://www.ted.com/index.php/speakers/charles_leadbeater.html

A researcher at the London think tank Demos, Charles Leadbeater was early to notice the rise of "amateur innovation" -- great ideas from outside the traditional walls, from people who suddenly…

in this talk Leadbeater describes how some of the biggest commercial successes in the world were born out of collaborative efforts of consumers and communities, and not corporations and individuals. he talks about "professional amateurs" which basically mean, amateurs who are passionate about their hobby (not profession), but want it to be done at professional standards. this pretty much describes the people at my-kart.

The Facebook Generation vs. the Fortune 500

Gary Hamel’s Management 2.0
A look at new ways of managing

By Gary Hamel

The experience of growing up online will profoundly shape the workplace expectations of “Generation F” – the Facebook Generation. At a minimum, they’ll expect the social environment of work to reflect the social context of the Web, rather than as is currently the case, a mid-20th-century Weberian bureaucracy.

If your company hopes to attract the most creative and energetic members of Gen F, it will need to understand these Internet-derived expectations, and then reinvent its management practices accordingly. Sure, it’s a buyer’s market for talent right now, but that won’t always be the case—and in the future, any company that lacks a vital core of Gen F employees will soon find itself stuck in the mud.

With that in mind, I compiled a list of 12 work-relevant characteristics of online life. These are the post-bureaucratic realities that tomorrow’s employees will use as yardsticks in determining whether your company is “with it” or “past it.” In assembling this short list, I haven’t tried to catalog every salient feature of the Web’s social milieu, only those that are most at odds with the legacy practices found in large companies.

1. All ideas compete on an equal footing.

On the Web, every idea has the chance to gain a following—or not, and no one has the power to kill off a subversive idea or squelch an embarrassing debate. Ideas gain traction based on their perceived merits, rather than on the political power of their sponsors.

2. Contribution counts for more than credentials.

When you post a video to YouTube, no one asks you if you went to film school. When you write a blog, no one cares whether you have a journalism degree. Position, title, and academic degrees—none of the usual status differentiators carry much weight online. On the Web, what counts is not your resume, but what you can contribute.

3. Hierarchies are natural, not prescribed.

In any Web forum there are some individuals who command more respect and attention than others—and have more influence as a consequence. Critically, though, these individuals haven’t been appointed by some superior authority. Instead, their clout reflects the freely given approbation of their peers. On the Web, authority trickles up, not down.

4. Leaders serve rather than preside.

On the Web, every leader is a servant leader; no one has the power to command or sanction. Credible arguments, demonstrated expertise and selfless behavior are the only levers for getting things done through other people. Forget this online, and your followers will soon abandon you.

5. Tasks are chosen, not assigned.

The Web is an opt-in economy. Whether contributing to a blog, working on an open source project, or sharing advice in a forum, people choose to work on the things that interest them. Everyone is an independent contractor, and everyone scratches their own itch.

6. Groups are self-defining and -organizing.

On the Web, you get to choose your compatriots. In any online community, you have the freedom to link up with some individuals and ignore the rest, to share deeply with some folks and not at all with others. Just as no one can assign you a boring task, no can force you to work with dim-witted colleagues.

7. Resources get attracted, not allocated.

In large organizations, resources get allocated top-down, in a politicized, Soviet-style budget wrangle. On the Web, human effort flows towards ideas and projects that are attractive (and fun), and away from those that aren’t. In this sense, the Web is a market economy where millions of individuals get to decide, moment by moment, how to spend the precious currency of their time and attention.

8. Power comes from sharing information, not hoarding it.

The Web is also a gift economy. To gain influence and status, you have to give away your expertise and content. And you must do it quickly; if you don’t, someone else will beat you to the punch—and garner the credit that might have been yours. Online, there are a lot of incentives to share, and few incentives to hoard.

9. Opinions compound and decisions are peer-reviewed.

On the Internet, truly smart ideas rapidly gain a following no matter how disruptive they may be. The Web is a near-perfect medium for aggregating the wisdom of the crowd—whether in formally organized opinion markets or in casual discussion groups. And once aggregated, the voice of the masses can be used as a battering ram to challenge the entrenched interests of institutions in the offline world.

10. Users can veto most policy decisions.

As many Internet moguls have learned to their sorrow, online users are opinionated and vociferous—and will quickly attack any decision or policy change that seems contrary to the community’s interests. The only way to keep users loyal is to give them a substantial say in key decisions. You may have built the community, but the users really own it.

11. Intrinsic rewards matter most.

The web is a testament to the power of intrinsic rewards. Think of all the articles contributed to Wikipedia, all the open source software created, all the advice freely given—add up the hours of volunteer time and it’s obvious that human beings will give generously of themselves when they’re given the chance to contribute to something they actually care about. Money’s great, but so is recognition and the joy of accomplishment.

12. Hackers are heroes.

Large organizations tend to make life uncomfortable for activists and rabble-rousers—however constructive they may be. In contrast, online communities frequently embrace those with strong anti-authoritarian views. On the Web, muckraking malcontents are frequently celebrated as champions of the Internet’s democratic values—particularly if they’ve managed to hack a piece of code that has been interfering with what others regard as their inalienable digital rights.

These features of Web-based life are written into the social DNA of Generation F—and mostly missing from the managerial DNA of the average Fortune 500 company. Yeah, there are a lot of kids looking for jobs right now, but few of them will ever feel at home in cubicleland.

So, readers, here’s a couple of questions: What are the Web-based social values that you think are most contrary to the managerial DNA one finds inside a typical corporate giant? And how should we reinvent management to make it more consistent with these emerging online sensibilities?

i've decided to re-post hamel's article here for easy reference.

the original article can be found at the wall street journal online:
http://blogs.wsj.com/management/2009/03/24/the-facebook-gene...

i would like to have your thoughts on this subject.

Section III: my-KART race events, series etc

This section describes the various my-KART organised racing events such as the (K2 and K3) KART series, the Mega Enduro series and any other series, once off events my-KART may organise in the future.

The section will cover the overall goals of the series, the rules & regulations, roles & responsibilities and the tools & methodologies.

The section shall also cover sponsorship & commercialisation opportunities for each of these events.

DRIVERS series (K1, K2 and K3)

The K2 and K3 series was introduced in 2004 due to the increased demands and capability of drivers. Prior to this, the 2003 DRIVERS (formerly known as KART) series was run only on funkarts and 80cc 2-stroke karts.

With the introduction of the K2 and K3 series in 2004, the DRIVERS series is now consolidated as the amateur drivers' championship whereby keen amateur motor-sports enthusiasts compete with each other over a full racing season to claim the top honours & glory and hence own the bragging rights as the best amateur karter in the Klang Valley. A new K1 series (125cc karts) was introduced in 2008 with slightly different rules, but run under the DRIVERS series umbrella.

The DRIVERS series is an individual race series which emphasises consistency, race craft, adaptability, strategy in addition to the prerequisites of racing skill.

In addition to this the DRIVERS series emphasises the spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie.

The rules of the DRIVERS series are contained within this section.

DRIVERS series (K3) rules and formats - 2012

1.0 OBJECTIVES

The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

Given that my-KART events are conducted using primarily rental karts, it is likely that kart performances will vary significantly. The event format that is described below intends to minimise the "luck of the draw" as best possible. my-KART events are also aimed at balancing the skill levels and the kart performance as far as possible.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE

Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying races - points collected to determine order for choosing karts in final. The qualifying heats are conducted as individual races, and points are scored based on the drivers finishing positions in the qualifying races. By doing so, we do not need to depend on timing systems which can often be unreliable, and this will allow more excitement for participants.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on how well they scored in the combined qualifying races.

3.0 RACE LENGTH

Each qualifying race and final race will run for 8 laps.

4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS

The K3 category will be split into two weight categories:

  1. K3-45 - for drivers above the 45 kg weight up to less than 70kg
  2. K3-70 - for drivers 70kg and above in weight

For the event groupings, the total number of drivers are sorted in seed order. The drivers will be divided into groups of similar numbers. The number of drivers per group depends on the number of reasonably good karts. Consecutive seeded drivers will be split into different groups. Eg, seed 1 in group A, seed 2 in group B and so on.

5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts are assigned to each grid position. For example, kart number 1 may be assigned to grid number 1 and so on. Drivers will be assigned the grid positions based on their seeding order; ie highest seeded drivers start first. In the event of unseeded drivers, the order will be in favour of first registered driver.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying races, drivers will start in the reverse grid order of the first qualifying. The karts assigned to each grid will remain in the same positions. For example, the driver that started on pole in the first qualifying heat will swap grid position and kart with the driver who started last in the previous heat, and so on.

(iii) change of karts: karts will only be changed if the organisers decide that it is either too slow / damaged / dangerous / too fast (unfair advantage) in comparison with the rest, or if certain drivers cannot fit into certain karts, or if a driver has driven the same kart in the previous qualifying race (applicable only during the qualifying segment).

Points will be scored for each qualifying heat based on finishing positions, and accumulated to determine who gets the first choice of karts for the final. Even drivers who did not finish the qualifying race will still score points based on the ultimate classified position.

6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The points scored in the qualifying heats will determine which final the driver falls into. If there are odd number of drivers, then the final for top drivers will be more then the lower finals.

The top scoring drivers in qualifying will have first choice to the karts for the final. This will allow the driver who performed best in the qualifying heats the chance to choose the best available karts, and thus eliminate the "luck" factor in their final race. In a tie breaker, the driver with the higher seeding will choose first. If there is still a tie, the driver registered online first will have prior choice.

The starting order for the finals will be in reverse qualifying order (ie, the highest scoring driver in qualifying will start last in the finals - but have the benefit of the better kart). This will further allow drivers who may have had bad karts in the qualifying heats to have another chance to improve on their position for the DRIVERS championship.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, all 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship.

7.0 DRIVER WEIGHTS AND THE WEIGHT CATEGORY

Drivers within a category finals would be further sub-ranked within their weight categories. There will be two weight categories for 2012 - which is 70kg minimum and 45kg minimum. Weights are based on drivers own declaration and includes racing gear - from time to time, the my-KART organisers may test the driver weights, and should the drivers weigh less than the minimum limit, then they shall lose all the points scored up to that point, and shall be placed in the more appropriate weight category.

8.0 FEE & PRICING

The pricing for the K3 class will be set by the organisers and is subject to change due to market forces and with minimal notice. Currently the fees for a full K3 event is as follows:

  • K3 (80cc) = RM100 per driver per event

Fees are paid in full upon registration. Only cash is excepted. The fees will not be refunded if the driver does not complete the full event.

ARBITRATION

The my-KART event organisers has the final say.

DRIVERS series: 2012 K1 Rules & Regulations / Eligibility

[b]DRIVERS K1/K2 Rules & Regulations[/b]

[b]1.0 OBJECTIVES[/b]
The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

The K1 series aims to provide the opportunity for my-KART members to get one step closer to competitive kart racing. We will be using rental 125cc karts for this series. As such, participation in this series will be selective and limited to ensure only drivers with the right skill level, experience and behaviour are included at this level.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

[b]1.1 DRIVER AND KART ALLOCATION[/b]
The K1 series will be limited to available karts prepared by the Operators. For the 2012 season, the Operator will prepare 15 karts, equaling 30 available seats. However, my-kart may set aside a few karts as spares. Any additional demand for kart seats will need to be notified to the Operator at least ONE week in advance of the race event.

Driver allocation to karts will be based on the closest physical fit between the 2 drivers, based on weight and height.

For the 2012 season, the Operators will prepare new 150cc 4-stroke karts - which replaces the aging 125cc rotax juniors from the previous seasons. However, with effect from Round 04, the Operator will revert to the rental Rotax 125cc on CRG road rebel chassis. The engines will be rebuilt to be in improved condition but will remain non-exclusive.

[b]1.2 WEIGHT/BALLAST[/b]
The minimum total weight for the driver will be 72 kg for K1 at all times. Should the weight of driver fall below this minimum threshold, ballasts shall be added to meet the minimum weight. It is the driver's sole responsibility to ensure that the minimum weight requirement is at all times met (before and after race). A driver will be disqualified (DQ) if this rule is breached.

[b]1.3 TRANSPONDER[/b]
Transponders will be use for timing management. It will be the driver's responsibility to inform Race Director or the Time Marshall in the event there is a change of kart.

[b]2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE[/b]
Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying races - Race 1 starting grid will be based on current my-kart race seedings. Race 2 starting grid will be based on the reverse order of Race 1's starting grid. Points will be awarded and accumulated from Race 1 and 2.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on the total points accumulated from the 2 qualifying heats. Starting grid for the final will depend on he points accumulated during the qualifying races.

(iii) In the case where two drivers sharing the same kart, end up in the same final group, then the driver with the higher total points will take the assigned kart. The driver with the lower total points, will need to select another available kart.

[b]3.0 RACE LENGTH[/b]
Each qualifying race and final race will run for 8 laps.

[b]4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS[/b]
There will be no weight based driver categories within K1.

[b]5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY[/b]
(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on current my-kart seedings.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on the reverse order of the 1st qualifying race's starting grid.

(iii) change of karts: There will not be any kart changes in the K1 series. Karts that are damaged due to racing incidents will be pulled out of the event and fixed. There is no guarantee that the the damaged kart will be ready for the next race. Spare karts will be use only when it is damaged due to reasons not caused by the driver such as engine seizure, brake failure, etc.

All positions in qualifying will be eligible for points even though the driver may not have finished the race through retirement or disqualification. Points will be awarded according to the classified results of the qualifying races - highest points to drivers classified top. All drivers will be classified for the qualifying races.

[b]6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY[/b]
Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The most number of points scored over the 2 qualifying races will determine which final the driver falls into.

If two drivers who share the same kart, fall into the same final grouping, then the driver with the higher number of points in qualifying will use the assigned kart. The second driver will need to select another available kart for the final race.

The starting order for the finals will be in order of the total points scored, with the highest score at pole position.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, all 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship. This is different from the previous year's practice of 8 scores out of 10.

[b]7.0 FEE & PRICING[/b]
The pricing for the K1 series will be set by the organisers and is subject to change due to market forces and with minimal notice. Currently the fees for the series are as follows

Security Deposit of RM600 per K1 driver is payable in full prior to each race, and must be maintained at RM600 throughout the season. Any costs arising from loss or damage to karts will be deducted from this deposit amount.

K1 Event fee = RM200 per driver per event.

Fees are paid in full upon registration. Only cash is accepted. The fees will not be refunded if the driver does not complete the full event.

[b]8.0 ARBITRATION[/b]
The my-KART event organisers has the final say.

[b]9.0 ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR K1 PARTICIPATION[/b]

[b]10.0 Supplementary Regulations (Technical)[/b]

Upgrading policy & guidelines (2012)

policy

The general policy for upgrading from K3 (to K2 or K1) is that drivers must be able to race in faster karts in a safe and ethical way. Drivers should also support my-kart's objectives.

guidelines

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: To participate in categories above K3, participants must be -
1) a club member
2) has sufficient damage deposit
3) must be competent in faster karts
4) participants must have a good safety & ethical record

1.0 ASSESSING COMPETENCE, SAFETY AND ETHICS

To assess the participants' safety and ethical behaviours, drivers wishing to upgrade from K3 to K2 or K1 should be regulars of my-kart DRIVERS series events with a clean (safe & ethical) on track and off track record.

Competence, safety & ethical on track and off track record encompasses -
a) consistency - driving technique, performance, minimal unforced incidents / errors, season long results
b) judgment - no unnecessary aggression resulting in incidents, and complaints from other drivers
c) attitude - level headed when dealing with adversity on and off track

This can only be assessed through regular participation in K3.

What is regular may change from time to time, but typically a driver who has recently participated in more than 3 DRIVERS series events can be considered regular. There are TWO ways to achieve this: (1) In-season upgrade upon request; OR (2) Post season automatic upgrade. These are detailed below.

1.1 IN-SEASON UPGRADE UPON REQUEST

K3 participants may formally request for upgrade in their first season with K3. The committee will only then be able to consciously observe the applicant for 3 races AFTER their application for upgrade.

[table steps|description
Prerequisite|The applicant must have raced at least once in my-kart's category K3 before requesting for upgrading.
Step 1|Request to join K1 through any kelab my-kart committee member, or through website (transparency) - http://club.my-kart.org/node/3696
Step 2|The main committee will evaluate whether the applicant can be considered for upgrading. Participants must demonstrate a sufficient level of competency accrued from experience in running or racing karts in order to be ready for the 100cc or 125cc level. [b]"Chicken Wing session(s)*"[/b] may be required to complete the evaluation process.
Step 3|The applicant if accepted will be under the committee's observation for at least the next 3 races in K3. The minimum 3 race observation period in K3 is to evaluate the applicant's level of sportsmanship, race ethics, safety practices and kart handling skills]

*note: The Chicken Wing Session is an informal session for hard core / senior my-karters to have fun while practising. Senior karters also use these sessions to coach newbies or anyone wishing to improve upon request. It is also use by the club to assess and evaluate any driver seeking to upgrade their karting grade to a higher level. These sessions are upon request.

1.2 POST SEASON AUTOMATIC UPGRADE

K3 participants may be automatically upgraded for the following season AFTER the completion of at least one K3 season if they finish within the top levels of the K3-45 or the K3-70 categories. Actual ranking will be specified in the K2 / K1 rules for the relevant season.

1.3 EXCEPTIONS TO THE ABOVE

[b]1.3.1 "Returnees"[/b]
1.1 Refers to karters who have participated in my-KART events in the past, but who may not have participated in club events in the preceding year or more.
1.2 The eligibility criteria will apply.
1.3 Approval from Main Committee required before inclusion as a K2 / K1 participant.

[b]9.5.2 "Talented Outsiders"[/b].
2.1 Includes karters who have never joined my-KART events at all, but who may have participated in recognised external events, such as AAM / MAM sanctioned events.
2.2 Includes owners of private 100cc or 125 cc karts.
2.3 The eligibility criteria will apply.
2.4 Approval from Main Committee required before inclusion as a K2 / K1 participant.

[b]9.5.3 "Invited Guests"[/b]
3.1 Includes experienced karters, usually known personalities in the motorsports fraternity, who may from time to time, be invited by Kelab my-KART Selangor to participate in K2 / K1 level events for promotional purposes.
3.2. The eligibility criteria will not apply, because these karters will only be allowed to participate in the K2 / K1 event on a "one-off" basis.

[b]9.5.4 "Leapfroggers"[/b]
4.1 This applies when K3 drivers wish to leapfrog classes when there are 3 classes being run: K3, K2 and K1. In other words, when K3 drivers wish to leapfrog from K3 to K1 and bypassing the K2 class (when it is being run).
4.2 The eligibility criteria will apply. (Hence in a case where the K3 member has no experience with 100 or 125 cc karts, the member will not be eligible for participation in the K1 series).
4.3 Approval from Main Committee required before inclusion as a K1 participant.

1.4 PROBATION IN K2 or K1

Successful applicants will be allowed to join the K2 / K1 race on probation for at least 3 races. Again, the minimum 3 race probation period in K1 will be use to gauge the driver's level of sportsmanship, race ethics, safety practices and kart handling skills.

Unsatisfactory Probation Period: If the committee is not satisfied with the driver's performance for whatsoever reason during the the min 3 race probation period in K2 / K1, he/she will be demoted back to K3 and can only reapply for K1 in the next season.

2.0 SUPPORTING MY-KART's OBJECTIVES

Drivers wishing to upgrade from K3 should also support my-kart's objectives. Review the objectives here - http://club.my-kart.org/node/1468

While this is a subjective matter, the committee will be observing on and off track attitudes of the applicant. Volunteer work, good on track ethics, no negative experiences are some signs of drivers with the necessary requirements to meet the upgrade requirements. The volunteer philosophy is expanded here - http://club.my-kart.org/node/3419

3.0 CLUB MEMBER AND DAMAGE DEPOSIT

Actual details of the membership and deposit are detailed out in K2 / K1 rules for the relevant season.

In general, drivers must be members of the club and pay the required damage deposit. For example, for the 2010 season onwards, the damage deposit for both K1 & K2 are RM600. The damage deposit will be used if there are damages to your kart. Drivers are required to top up before they can participate in the next races. Payment details are found on this link - http://club.my-kart.org/node/3752

4.0 FEEDBACK

Feel free to provide feedback on this thread.

DRIVERS series operations section

This section captures discussions, guidelines and reference manuals for the DRIVERS series operations functions.

Event checklist (before & during the event)

A number of volunteers are required to run the regular KART series events.

There needs to be at least 2 volunteers for each role as backup (so one can take over if the other cannot attend).

The following roles are needed before, during and after each of the events. Further information / checklist of activities can be found here.

Before the event

event promotion (required):
This role concerns with the promotion, communication and registration updates for the coming event. The objective is to increase participation and spectator support.

  • pit management

The event operations role is one of the busiest roles during an event and the incumbent may need to appoint / select a few volunteers to do the following:

  • lap charting
  • driver, kart and grid formations
  • flag marshalling
  • race observers (need experienced racers), if applicable
  • scoring & administration

For scoring and administration, the event operations role may request the event administration role to assist, although the main call / decision maker will be the event operations role.

event technical adviser:
The event Technical Adviser will be in charge of assessing the track & weather conditions, the state of the kart wear and tear and provide the event operations / administration roles with the avilable karts for the events. The event technical adviser role will also liaise with the kart / circuit operators on any issues pertaining to the kart or track conditions.

external liaison:
This role is required to extend / communicate my-KART's appreciation for the media's & sponsor's attendance to the events.

DRIVERS series operations checklist

This section contains information about what needs to be done before and during a particular event. It describes the hows in a checklist (as attached).

The checklist is recommended as a guide to conducting a DRIVERS series event from the preparation 2 weeks prior to the event, to the preparation the night before the event and activity guides during the event.

It also helps inventorise the various tools & equipments needed to run a DRIVERS series event.

my-KART members are invited to review the checklist and comment for on going improvements.

DRIVERS Series Volunteers

As most of you are well aware, my-kart introduced the K1 series for teh first time in Round 1 2008. As such, it was quite a learning curve for all the committee and volunteers to incorporate this race into a tight schedule for the day.

Based on feedback from the committee, volunteers and participants, we are currently in the process of streamlining the management and organisation of the K1, K2 and K3 events and looking to achieve a faster turn around time between races. This will mean we require a lot more dedicated volunteers.

It is the intention that participants from each group become responsible for assisting in organising their events.

I have had a private discussion with some K2 drivers and they have agreed to volunteer their services for the 2008 season. We would also like to see more involvement in particular from the K3 group, especially when it comes to arranging the karts for the grid formation. By volunteering to help the organisation you will benefit from gaining experience and exposure in race management and become part of the team and not just a driver! I hope you won’t be shy and will come forward….

For ease of operations, we propose to assign volunteers to a specific group i.e. Group A, Heat 1 and 2 etc. In the event that a volunteer cannot assist due to participation in that particular group then the volunteer would be responsible for finding a suitable replacement. Adopting this methodology will ensure continuity of support to each race.

The ‘volunteers’ who have confirmed their participation is as follows:

[b]K1 Managers[/b]
1) Naza
2) Luen

[b]K1 Group A Organisers[/b]

Many thanks in advance for your support.

DRIVERS series lap charts & results

This document will describe the various activities, roles and processes with regards to the lap charting and result reporting functions (record to result).

All race progress will be recorded either by way of -

1/ manual lap charting; AND/OR
2/ automatic transponder assisted recording

For the DRIVERS series, the preference is for manual lap charting due to the past experience on reliability of transponder assisted recording (eg. failed or dropped transponders). Hence, it is crucial for the manual lap charting is done properly.

Two volunteers are needed for each race/sortie. One of the volunteer is to read the kart numbers as they cross the "start/finish" line, and the other to record the kart numbers in the lap chart.

The volunteers shall be selected by the category (K1/K2/K3) captain or owner - or his/her assistant/deputy. The category captain must ensure that the lap chart volunteers are aware of their lap charting responsibilities & procedures.

Lap Charting Procedures

A lap chart will be printed for the lap charters.

The lap chart shall contain the list of drivers and their kart numbers as they start the race. The drivers are printed on the list in starting order.

The lap chart contains columns for each lap of the race duration. eg, for a 8 lap race, there should be at least 8 columns for each race lap.

The lap charting volunteers shall record the kart numbers SEQUENTIALLY AS THEY CROSS THE START/FINISH LINE from top to bottom in the relevent lap column. Kart numbers shall only be recorded WHEN the kart crosses the start/finish line. Lapped karts, shall only be recorded WHEN they cross the start/finish line. Lap charting volunteers shall not be compelled to record lapped karts in the final lap column.

The lap charting volunteers shall discuss and agree the recorded results and append their names on the bottom of each lap chart.

Results Transcription Procedures

this part is under construction

Attachment A: Driver database records, entry lists

Whenever myKART organises any league events, participants entry confirmations and responses needs to be recorded for administrative purposes. To this end, myKART uses an MS Excel spreadsheet to track member names and basic details, their responses and also the results.

The excel file is attached within this section.

Attachment B: Event Result Recorder (ERR)

A specific MS Excel spreadsheet is utilised to capture the individual event results. This spreadsheet allows driver listing according to registration and seeding, and employs VBA macros to sort them into smaller groups.

Extensive use of formula enables the event organiser to assign grid positions and kart numbers according to the standard myKART grid formation rules.

Additional formula will assign scores to each results and allow the results to be ranked in order. This spreadsheet also tabulates the whole event scoring and ranks which will need to be separately updated into the league table.

• All starts will be rolling type. The grid shall be made up of two lines of karts.

• Competitors in a race will be released from the Parc Ferme area and will drive at a reasonable speed to the starting grid where they will be positioned in the proper starting order. Any competitor found driving at excessive speed in the Parc Ferme area will be penalized.

• Upon arrival at the starting grid, the driver will be positioned by the grid marshals. The Parc Ferme exit to the track will be closed to all drivers 5 minutes before the start of the race. Any driver still remaining at the Parc Ferme area will then only be allowed to join at the back of the Grid during the Warm-Up lap.

(m) [b]Start[/b]
A Green flag shall be waved by the Starter signaling the start of the Warm Up lap. Drivers must remain in thein starting grid order with the competitor starting from Pole position playing the role as leader of the formation in both laps. It is the responsibility of each driver to retain his grid position.

(n). [b]Jump Start[/b]
• A “Jump Start” will be deemed to have occurred when a driver crosses the Start line ahead of his prescribed grid position at the start of the race.

• [b]The penalty will be 10 seconds[/b], which will be added to the total race time of the driver concerned [b]or demoted 5 positions from the final finish position[/b] in the event transponders are not in use.

(o). [b]Finish[/b]
• The Chequered Flag will be dropped as the winner crosses the Finish Line and will be held stationery until the last driver completes the lap he is on.

• To be classified as a Finisher, a kart must cross the Finish Line under its own power with the driver seated in the normal driving position, not more than one minute after the fall of the Chequered Flag, and must have covered not less than half the race distance.

• As soon as the Chequered Flag has been shown to a driver at the end of the race, he must proceed directly, using only the authorised route, to the Parc Ferme.

• From the moment the driver has received the Chequered Flag until he is released from the Parc Ferme he is under Parc Ferme conditions and must make no alterations or adjustments to his kart or other materials or equipment.

(p). [b]Restarting during the race[/b]
Once a kart is on the circuit, whether in practice or during the race, no outside assistance is permitted. Officials of the meet may assist a driver to move a stalled kart out of a dangerous position but will not assist to restart.

(q). [b]Conduct[/b]
THE DRINKING OF ANY ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR INTOXICATION BY ANY OTHER MEANS (e.g. NARCOTICS) IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN AND ANY DRIVER AND CREW FOUND GUILTY OF SUCH AN OFFENCE WILL BE IMMEDIATELY EXCLUDED FROM THE COMPETITION AND REMOVED FROM THE TRACK.

(r). [b]Stopping the Race[/b]
• Should it be deemed necessary to stop the race due to an accident and on grounds of safety or any other reason, the Red Flag shall be shown by the Clerk of Course at the Start Line and all other Flag Marshalls shall show a Red Flag to indicate the race has been stopped. All drivers will immediately stop racing and continue to the Start Line, being prepared to stop at any point as requested by an Official. The result of stopping the race is as follows:

• Should 75% of the race be completed, it shall be deemed a race and the result be the finishing order at the end of the lap preceding the stopping.
• Should less than 2 laps have been completed, the race shall be re-run in full and the 1st start be null and void.

• Should more than 2 laps but less than 75% of the race been completed, the race will be restarted with the race distance being the original race distance less the laps completed by the race leader before the signal to stop was given.

(s). [b]Protests[/b]
Refer to current my-kart procedure

(t). [b]Postponement[/b]
At the discretion of the Organiser, the meeting or part may be postponed or cancelled.

(u). [b]Advertising[/b]
Prior Approval from my-kart is required.

(v). [b]Flag Signals[/b]
The following signals will be used:

[b]Green Flag[/b] - Start of race or practice

[b]Blue Flag[/b] - (Only shown to drivers who are being lapped and are a
minimum of one lap behind).
Stationery - you are being lapped, keep to your line.
Waved – a driver wishes to overtake, let him pass.

[b]Yellow Flag[/b] - Danger, slow down, it is forbidden to overtake.
Waved – extreme danger, be prepared to stop.

[b]Black Flag with Orange Disc and Number[/b] - Stop for a technical defect. The driver may continue after repairs.

[b]White Flag[/b] - Slow moving vehicle on the track.

[b]Yellow Flag with Red Stripes[/b] - Deterioration of adhesion (eg.oil, water).

[b]Green Flag[/b] - All clear.

[b]Black Triangle & White Triangle Flag with Number[/b] - Last warning before exclusion following unsporting behaviour.

[b]Black Flag with Number[/b] Driver to immediately go to Pits and report to the Clerk of the Course, who may or may not permit him to rejoin the race.

[b]Red Flag[/b] All drivers will immediately stop racing and continue towards the Start Line, being prepared to stop at any point as requested by an Official.

[i][b]All drivers must be in possession of a valid Kelab my-kart ID which must be produced for inspection on demand at anytime during the race.[/b][/i]

KART series rules and formats - 2005

1.0 OBJECTIVES

The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

Given that my-KART events are conducted using primarily rental karts, it is likely that kart performances will vary significantly. The event format that is described below intends to minimise the "luck of the draw" as best possible. my-KART events are also aimed at balancing the skill levels and the kart performance as far as possible.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE

Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying heats - points collected to determine order for choosing karts in final. The qualifying heats are conducted as individual races, and points are scored based on the drivers finishing positions in the qualifying races. By doing so, we do not need to depend on timing systems which can often be unreliable, and this will allow more excitement for participants.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on how well they scored in the combined qualifying races.

3.0 RACE LENGTH

Each heat and final will run for about 10 minutes each. This equates to approx 8 laps.

4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS

There will be 3 driver categories:

  1. Formula K2 - advanced karters (2-stroke 100cc rental karts)
  2. Formula K3 - rookie karters (2-stroke 80cc rental karts / 4-stroke funkarts)
  3. Formula K-Ladies - lady karters (2-stroke 80cc rental karts / 4-stroke funkarts)

The objective is to have a suitable number of drivers in each grouping to allow for a minimum 7-9 driver turn out. The Formula K2 group will initially comprise of 25 drivers. The selection is based on 2 out of 3 of the following:

    +++only subscribed members of the my-KART mailing list who...
  1. is ranked in top 20 from the prior season
  2. attended more than 2 races
  3. has adequate racing experience in 100cc and 125cc karts and is made known to my-KART admin or any other nominee

The selection for K2 requires careful consideration given the significantly higher speeds of the 100cc karts. Above all, my-KART emphasises safety and fun racing, hence it is vital that drivers in the K2 group are sufficiently capable of handling 100cc karts in racing conditions.

For the event groupings, the total number of drivers are sorted in seed order. The drivers will be divided into groups of similar numbers. The number of drivers per group depends on the number of reasonably good karts. Consecutive seeded drivers will be split into different groups. Eg, seed 1 in group A, seed 2 in group B and so on.

5.0 QUALIFYING HEATS FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

(i) For the 1st qualifying heats, karts are assigned to each grid position. For example, kart number 1 may be assigned to grid number 1 and so on. Drivers will be assigned the grid positions based on their seeding order; ie highest seeded drivers start first. In the event of unseeded drivers, the order will be in favour of first registered driver.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying heats, drivers will start in the reverse grid order of the first qualifying. The karts assigned to each grid will remain in the same positions. For example, the driver that started on pole in the first qualifying heat will swap grid position and kart with the driver who started last in the previous heat, and so on.

(iii) change of karts: karts will only be changed if the organisers decide that it is either too slow / damaged / dangerous / too fast in comparison with the rest, or if certain drivers cannot fit into certain karts.

Points will be score for each qualifying heat based on finishing positions, and accumulated to determine who gets the first choice of karts for the final.

6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The points scored in the qualifying heats will determine which final the driver falls into. If there are odd number of drivers, then the final for top drivers will be more then the lower finals.

The top scoring drivers in the qualifying heats will have first choice to the karts for the final. This will allow the driver who performed best in the qualifying heats the chance to choose the best available karts, and thus eliminate the "luck" factor in their final race. In a tie breaker, the driver with the best finishing position in the qualifying heats will choose first. If there is still a tie, the higher seeded driver will choose first.

The starting order for the finals will be in reverse qualifying order (ie, the highest scoring driver in qualifying will start last in the finals - but have the benefit of the better kart). This will further allow drivers who may have had bad karts in the qualifying heats to have another chance to improve on their position for the KART championship.

This will further allow drivers who may have had bad karts in the qualifying heats to have another chance to improve on their position for the KART championship.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, only the best 8 out of 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship. Drivers who score in 9 or 10 events will thus have to drop the lowests scores from the overall total.

7.0 DRIVER WEIGHTS AND THE WEIGHT CATEGORY

Drivers within a category finals would be further sub-ranked within their weight categories. There will be two weight categories - which is 70kg minimum and 45kg minimum. Weights are based on drivers own declaration and includes racing gear - from time to time, the my-KART organisers may test the driver weights, and should the drivers weigh less than the minimum limit, then they shall lose all the points scored up to that point, and shall be placed in the more appropriate weight category.

8.0 FEE & PRICING

The pricing for the K2 and K3 class will be set by the organisers and is subject to change due to market forces and with minimal notice. Currently the fees for a full K2 and K3 event is as follows:

  • K2 (100cc) = RM170 per driver per event
  • K3 (80cc) = RM90 per driver per event

Fees are paid in full upon registration. Only cash is excepted. The fees will not be refunded if the driver does not complete the full event.

In a tie breaker, the driver with the best finishing position in the qualifying heats will choose first. If there is still a tie, the higher seeded driver will choose first.

The starting order for the finals will be in reverse qualifying order (ie, the highest scoring driver in qualifying will start last in the finals - but have the benefit of the better kart). This will further allow drivers who may have had bad karts in the qualifying heats to have another chance to improve on their position for the DRIVERS championship.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, only the best 8 out of 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship. Drivers who score in 9 or 10 events will thus have to drop the lowests scores from the overall total.

7.0 DRIVER WEIGHTS AND THE 2008 WEIGHT CATEGORY

Drivers within a category finals would be further sub-ranked within their weight categories. There will be two weight categories for 2008 - which is 70kg minimum and 45kg minimum. Weights are based on drivers own declaration and includes racing gear - from time to time, the my-KART organisers may test the driver weights, and should the drivers weigh less than the minimum limit, then they shall lose all the points scored up to that point, and shall be placed in the more appropriate weight category.

8.0 FEE & PRICING

The pricing for the K2 and K3 class will be set by the organisers and is subject to change due to market forces and with minimal notice. Currently the fees for a full K2 and K3 event is as follows:

  • K2 (100cc) = RM170 per driver per event
  • K3 (80cc) = RM90 per driver per event

Fees are paid in full upon registration. Only cash is excepted. The fees will not be refunded if the driver does not complete the full event.

ARBITRATION

The my-KART event organisers has the final say.

DRIVERS series (K3) rules and formats - 2009, 2010

1.0 OBJECTIVES

The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

Given that my-KART events are conducted using primarily rental karts, it is likely that kart performances will vary significantly. The event format that is described below intends to minimise the "luck of the draw" as best possible. my-KART events are also aimed at balancing the skill levels and the kart performance as far as possible.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE

Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying races - points collected to determine order for choosing karts in final. The qualifying heats are conducted as individual races, and points are scored based on the drivers finishing positions in the qualifying races. By doing so, we do not need to depend on timing systems which can often be unreliable, and this will allow more excitement for participants.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on how well they scored in the combined qualifying races.

3.0 RACE LENGTH

Each heat and final will run for 8 laps.

4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS

There will be 3 driver categories:

  1. Formula K1 - advanced karters (2-stroke 125cc rotax junior rental karts)
  2. Formula K2 - advanced karters (2-stroke 100cc rental karts)
  3. Formula K3 - rookie karters (2-stroke 80cc rental karts)

The selection for K2 requires careful consideration given the significantly higher speeds of the 100cc karts. Above all, my-KART emphasises safety and fun racing, hence it is vital that drivers in the K2 group are sufficiently capable of handling 100cc karts in racing conditions. There are separate eligibility rules for the K2 and K1 classes.

For the event groupings, the total number of drivers are sorted in seed order. The drivers will be divided into groups of similar numbers. The number of drivers per group depends on the number of reasonably good karts. Consecutive seeded drivers will be split into different groups. Eg, seed 1 in group A, seed 2 in group B and so on.

5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts are assigned to each grid position. For example, kart number 1 may be assigned to grid number 1 and so on. Drivers will be assigned the grid positions based on their seeding order; ie highest seeded drivers start first. In the event of unseeded drivers, the order will be in favour of first registered driver.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying races, drivers will start in the reverse grid order of the first qualifying. The karts assigned to each grid will remain in the same positions. For example, the driver that started on pole in the first qualifying heat will swap grid position and kart with the driver who started last in the previous heat, and so on.

(iii) change of karts: karts will only be changed if the organisers decide that it is either too slow / damaged / dangerous / too fast in comparison with the rest, or if certain drivers cannot fit into certain karts, or if a driver has driven the same kart in the previous qualifying race (applicable only during the qualifying segment).

Points will be score for each qualifying heat based on finishing positions, and accumulated to determine who gets the first choice of karts for the final.

15.............1

6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The points scored in the qualifying heats will determine which final the driver falls into. If there are odd number of drivers, then the final for top drivers will be more then the lower finals.

The top scoring drivers in qualifying will have first choice to the karts for the final. This will allow the driver who performed best in the qualifying heats the chance to choose the best available karts, and thus eliminate the "luck" factor in their final race. In a tie breaker, the driver with the higher seeding will choose first. If there is still a tie, the driver registered online first will have prior choice.

The starting order for the finals will be in reverse qualifying order (ie, the highest scoring driver in qualifying will start last in the finals - but have the benefit of the better kart). This will further allow drivers who may have had bad karts in the qualifying heats to have another chance to improve on their position for the DRIVERS championship.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, only the best 8 out of 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship. Drivers who score in 9 or 10 events will thus have to drop the lowests scores from the overall total.

7.0 DRIVER WEIGHTS AND THE WEIGHT CATEGORY

Drivers within a category finals would be further sub-ranked within their weight categories. There will be two weight categories for 2009 - which is 70kg minimum and 45kg minimum. Weights are based on drivers own declaration and includes racing gear - from time to time, the my-KART organisers may test the driver weights, and should the drivers weigh less than the minimum limit, then they shall lose all the points scored up to that point, and shall be placed in the more appropriate weight category.

8.0 FEE & PRICING

The pricing for the K3 class will be set by the organisers and is subject to change due to market forces and with minimal notice. Currently the fees for a full K3 event is as follows:

  • K3 (80cc) = RM100 per driver per event

Fees are paid in full upon registration. Only cash is excepted. The fees will not be refunded if the driver does not complete the full event.

ARBITRATION

The my-KART event organisers has the final say.

2009 K2 race - Exclusive karts

Dear fellow karters,(especially those in K3 and K2)

I thought that it would be useful for Kelab my-kart to gauge your response to the idea of evolving the current K2 races using [b]100cc rental karts[/b] to using karts [b]exclusive for my-kart K2 drivers[/b], the same concept currently adopted for the K1 races. This idea has come about in the wake of persistent dissatisfaction on the state of rented 100cc karts. Please take note of the following when writing your responses:

1. Chassis : 10 nos. (Swiss Hutless / CRG / Mike Wilson)
2. Drivers : 20 ( 2 drivers per kart for the entire season)
2. Engine : New air cooled 100cc Yamaha SL.
3. Proposed Start date : Jan 2009
4. Exclusive for my-kart K2 races
5. Ballast will be use (driver+kart must weigh minimum 160kg)
6. Race Fee : RM 190.00 (subject to reconfirmation)
7. Damage deposit : RM 300.00

If you do have other options, please tell us.

DRIVERS series: K1/K2 Rules & Regulations / Eligibility

[b]DRIVERS K1/K2 Rules & Regulations[/b]

[b]1.0 OBJECTIVES[/b]
The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

The K1/K2 series aims to provide the opportunity for my-KART members to get one step closer to competitive kart racing. There will be 125cc and 100cc race karts dedicated to the club for this series. As such, participation in this series will be selective and limited to ensure only drivers with the right skill level, experience and behaviour are included at this level.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

[b]1.1 DRIVER AND KART ALLOCATION[/b]
The K1/K2 series will be limited to a maximum of 20 drivers per group or to the number of available rental karts provided by the operator. There will be 2 drivers assigned to one kart for the duration of the season.

Driver allocation to karts will be based on the closest physical fit between the 2 drivers, based on weight and height.

[b]1.2 WEIGHT/BALLAST[/b]
The minimum total weight for kart and driver will be 160 kg and 145 kg for K1 and K2 respectively at all times. Should the combined weight of driver and kart fall below this minimum threshold, ballasts shall be added to meet the minimum weight. It is the driver's sole responsibility to ensure that the minimum weight requirement is at all times met (before and after race). A driver will be disqualified (DQ) if this rule is breached.

[b]1.3 TRANSPONDER[/b]
Transponders will be use for timing management. It will be the driver's responsibility to inform Race Director or the Time Marshall in the event there is a change of kart.

[b]2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE[/b]
Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying races - Race 1 starting grid will be based on current my-kart race seedings. Race 2 starting grid will be based on the reverse order of Race 1's starting grid. Points will be awarded and accumulated from Race 1 and 2.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on the total points accumulated from the 2 qualifying heats. Starting grid for the final will depend on he points accumulated during the qualifying races.

(iii) In the case where two drivers sharing the same kart, end up in the same final group, then the driver with the higher total points will take the assigned kart. The driver with the lower total points, will need to select another available kart.

[b]3.0 RACE LENGTH[/b]
Each heat and final will run for 8 laps.

[b]4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS[/b]
There will be no driver categories within K1/K2 (ie, no K1/K2 45, K1/K2 70).

[b]5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY[/b]
(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on current my-kart seedings.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on the reverse order of Race 1's starting grid.

(iii) change of karts: There will not be any kart changes in the K1/K2 series. Karts that are damaged due to [b]racing incidents[/b] will be pulled out of the event and fixed. There is no guarantee that the the damaged kart will be ready for the next race. Spare karts will be use only when it is damaged due to reasons not caused by the driver such as engine seizure, brake failure, etc.

All positions in qualifying will be eligible for points even though the driver may not have finished the race through retirement or disqualification.

[b]6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY[/b]
Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The most number of points scored over the 2 qualifying races will determine which final the driver falls into.

If two drivers who share the same kart, fall into the same final grouping, then the driver with the higher number of points in qualifying will use the assigned kart. The second driver will need to select another available kart for the final race.

The starting order for the finals will be in order of the total points scored, with the highest score at pole position.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

DRAFT: DRIVERS K1 Rules & Regulations

1.0 OBJECTIVES

The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

The K1 series aims to provide the opportunity for my-KART members to get one step closer to competitive kart racing. There will be 125 cc CRG karts dedicated to the club for this series. As such, participation in this series will be selective and limited to ensure only drivers with the right skill level, experience and behaviour are included at this level.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

1.1 DRIVER AND KART ALLOCATION

The K1 series will allow but not necessarily limited to 20 primary drivers. There will be 2 drivers assigned to one kart for the duration of the season.
Driver allocation to karts will be based on the closest physical fit between the 2 drivers, based on weight and height.

1.2 WEIGHT/BALLAST

The minimum weight for driver and kart shall be 160 kg at all times. Should the combined weight of driver and kart fall below this minimum threshold, ballasts shall be added to meet the said minimum weight.

1.3 TRANSPONDER

Transponders are not required. The driver may if he so wish, rent the transponder from City Karting at his own cost and be solely responsible for any damages or losses to it due to any incident(s) whatsoever.

2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE

Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying heats - Heat 1 starting grid will be based on current my-kart race seedings. [b]Heat 2 starting grid will be based on the reverse order of Heat 1's starting grid[/b]. Points will be awarded and accumulated from Heats 1 and 2.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on the total points accumulated from the 2 qualifying heats.

(iii) In the case where two drivers sharing the same kart, end up in the same final group, then the driver with the higher total points will take the assigned kart. The driver with the lower total points, will need to select another available kart.

3.0 RACE LENGTH

Each heat and final will run for about 10 minutes each. This equates to approx 8 laps.

4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS

There will be no driver categories within K1 (ie, no K1/45, K1/70).

5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on current my-kart seedings.

(ii) [b]For the 2nd qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on the reverse order of Heat 1's starting grid[/b].

(iii) change of karts: There will not be any kart changes in the K1 series. Karts that are damaged or need repairs, will be pulled out of the event and fixed. There is no guarantee that the the damaged kart will be ready for the next race.

6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The most number of points scored over the 2 qualifying heats will determine which final the driver falls into.

If two drivers who share the same kart, fall into the same final grouping, then the driver with the higher number of points in qualifying will use the assigned kart. The second driver will need to select another available kart for the final race.

The starting order for the finals will be in order of the total points scored, with the highest score at pole position.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, only the best 8 out of 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship. Drivers who score in 9 or 10 events will thus have to drop the lowests scores from the overall total.

DRIVERS series: 2010 K1/K2 Rules & Regulations / Eligibility

[b]DRIVERS K1/K2 Rules & Regulations[/b]

[b]1.0 OBJECTIVES[/b]
The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere and reliance on volunteer efforts.

The K1/K2 series aims to provide the opportunity for my-KART members to get one step closer to competitive kart racing. A number of 125cc Rotax Junior race karts are dedicated to the club for this series. As such, participation in this series will be selective and limited to ensure only drivers with the right skill level, experience and behaviour are included at this level. The difference between the K1 and K2 categories will be the compound of tyres - soft for the K1 category.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

[b]1.1 DRIVER AND KART ALLOCATION[/b]
The K1/K2 series will be limited to a maximum of 16 drivers per category or to the number of available rental karts provided by the operator. There will be 2 drivers assigned to one kart for the duration of the season.

Driver allocation to karts will be based on the closest physical fit between the 2 drivers, based on weight and height.

[b]1.2 WEIGHT/BALLAST[/b]
The minimum total weight for kart and driver will be 160 kg and 145 kg for K1 and K2 respectively at all times. Should the combined weight of driver and kart fall below this minimum threshold, ballasts shall be added to meet the minimum weight. It is the driver's sole responsibility to ensure that the minimum weight requirement is at all times met (before and after race). A driver will be disqualified (DQ) if this rule is breached.

[b]1.3 TRANSPONDER[/b]
Transponders will be use for timing management. It will be the driver's responsibility to inform Race Director or the Time Marshall in the event there is a change of kart.

[b]2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE[/b]
Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying races - Race 1 starting grid will be based on current my-kart race seedings. Race 2 starting grid will be based on the reverse order of Race 1's starting grid. Points will be awarded and accumulated from Race 1 and 2.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on the total points accumulated from the 2 qualifying heats. Starting grid for the final will depend on he points accumulated during the qualifying races.

(iii) In the case where two drivers sharing the same kart, end up in the same final group, then the driver with the higher total points will take the assigned kart. The driver with the lower total points, will need to select another available kart.

[b]3.0 RACE LENGTH[/b]
Each heat and final will run for 8 laps.

[b]4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS[/b]
There will be no driver sub-categories within K1/K2 (ie, no K1/K2 45, K1/K2 70).

[b]5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY[/b]
(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on current my-kart seedings.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying races, karts and drivers will be assigned to each grid position based on the reverse order of Race 1's starting grid.

(iii) change of karts: There will not be any kart changes in the K1/K2 series. Karts that are damaged due to [b]racing incidents[/b] will be pulled out of the event and fixed. There is no guarantee that the damaged kart will be ready for the next race. Spare karts will be use only when it is damaged due to reasons not caused by the driver such as engine seizure, brake failure, etc.

All positions in qualifying will be eligible for points even though the driver may not have finished the race through retirement or disqualification.

[b]6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY[/b]
Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The most number of points scored over the 2 qualifying races will determine which final the driver falls into.

If two drivers who share the same kart, fall into the same final grouping, then the driver with the higher number of points in qualifying will use the assigned kart. The second driver will need to select another available kart for the final race.

The starting order for the finals will be in order of the total points scored, with the highest score at pole position.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.

DRIVERS series (K3) rules and formats - 2011

1.0 OBJECTIVES

The my-KART events aim to popularise grassroots motorsports, particularly karting by making participation in regular karting events accessible and affordable for its members. my-KART realises that there are a significant number of casual and semi-serious karting enthusiasts who would like to have the opportunity to participate in affordable racing events. In doing so, my-KART emphasises safety and fun above all. my-KART also aims at developing the amateur karting community, and thus the group and events will be conducted in a friendly atmosphere.

Given that my-KART events are conducted using primarily rental karts, it is likely that kart performances will vary significantly. The event format that is described below intends to minimise the "luck of the draw" as best possible. my-KART events are also aimed at balancing the skill levels and the kart performance as far as possible.

The purpose of this document is to set out the event formats and rules which meet the above objectives.

2.0 OVERVIEW OF RACE

Typically, the race is split into two segments for each driver and category:
(i) 2 qualifying races - points collected to determine order for choosing karts in final. The qualifying heats are conducted as individual races, and points are scored based on the drivers finishing positions in the qualifying races. By doing so, we do not need to depend on timing systems which can often be unreliable, and this will allow more excitement for participants.

(ii) 1 final - points will score towards the league table. Each driver will participate in one final each, but their groupings will be dependent on how well they scored in the combined qualifying races.

3.0 RACE LENGTH

Each heat and final will run for 8 laps.

4.0 DRIVER CATEGORIES AND EVENT GROUPINGS

The K3 category will be split into two weight categories:

  1. K3-45 - for drivers above the 45 kg weight up to less than 70kg
  2. K3-70 - for drivers 70kg and above in weight

For the event groupings, the total number of drivers are sorted in seed order. The drivers will be divided into groups of similar numbers. The number of drivers per group depends on the number of reasonably good karts. Consecutive seeded drivers will be split into different groups. Eg, seed 1 in group A, seed 2 in group B and so on.

5.0 QUALIFYING RACE FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

(i) For the 1st qualifying races, karts are assigned to each grid position. For example, kart number 1 may be assigned to grid number 1 and so on. Drivers will be assigned the grid positions based on their seeding order; ie highest seeded drivers start first. In the event of unseeded drivers, the order will be in favour of first registered driver.

(ii) For the 2nd qualifying races, drivers will start in the reverse grid order of the first qualifying. The karts assigned to each grid will remain in the same positions. For example, the driver that started on pole in the first qualifying heat will swap grid position and kart with the driver who started last in the previous heat, and so on.

(iii) change of karts: karts will only be changed if the organisers decide that it is either too slow / damaged / dangerous / too fast in comparison with the rest, or if certain drivers cannot fit into certain karts, or if a driver has driven the same kart in the previous qualifying race (applicable only during the qualifying segment).

Points will be score for each qualifying heat based on finishing positions, and accumulated to determine who gets the first choice of karts for the final. Even drivers who did not finish the qualifying race will still score points based on the ultimate classified position.


Points table (qualifying heats):
Position.....Score
1.............20
2.............16
3.............14
4.............12
5.............11
6.............10
7..............9
8..............8
9..............7
10.............6
11.............5
12.............4
13.............3
14.............2
15.............1

6.0 FINAL FORMAT FOR EACH CATEGORY

Each driver will drive in only one final, although there may be more than one final. The points scored in the qualifying heats will determine which final the driver falls into. If there are odd number of drivers, then the final for top drivers will be more then the lower finals.

The top scoring drivers in qualifying will have first choice to the karts for the final. This will allow the driver who performed best in the qualifying heats the chance to choose the best available karts, and thus eliminate the "luck" factor in their final race. In a tie breaker, the driver with the higher seeding will choose first. If there is still a tie, the driver registered online first will have prior choice.

The starting order for the finals will be in reverse qualifying order (ie, the highest scoring driver in qualifying will start last in the finals - but have the benefit of the better kart). This will further allow drivers who may have had bad karts in the qualifying heats to have another chance to improve on their position for the DRIVERS championship.

A driver who DNFs (must return to pits on own power) will not score points even if they are in the top final runners. The next drivers in the lower final groups will benefit from the extra position gained from the DNF driver's demise.


Points table:
Position.....Score
1.............20
2.............16
3.............14
4.............12
5.............11
6.............10
7..............9
8..............8
9..............7
10.............6
11.............5
12.............4
13.............3
14.............2
15.............1
dns............0
dnq............0
dnf............0

There are 15 points scoring positions for the league table. Only the top 15 drivers in the finals share score points.

In the championship table, all 10 scores will count towards the final drivers' championship.

7.0 DRIVER WEIGHTS AND THE WEIGHT CATEGORY

Drivers within a category finals would be further sub-ranked within their weight categories. There will be two weight categories for 2011 - which is 70kg minimum and 45kg minimum. Weights are based on drivers own declaration and includes racing gear - from time to time, the my-KART organisers may test the driver weights, and should the drivers weigh less than the minimum limit, then they shall lose all the points scored up to that point, and shall be placed in the more appropriate weight category.

8.0 FEE & PRICING

The pricing for the K3 class will be set by the organisers and is subject to change due to market forces and with minimal notice. Currently the fees for a full K3 event is as follows:

  • K3 (80cc) = RM100 per driver per event

Fees are paid in full upon registration. Only cash is excepted. The fees will not be refunded if the driver does not complete the full event.

ARBITRATION

The my-KART event organisers has the final say.

PROCEDURE FOR UPGRADING TO CATEGORY K1

PROCEDURE FOR UPGRADING TO CATEGORY K1

Prerequisite : The applicant must have raced at least once in my-kart's category K3 before requesting for upgrading to K1.

Step 1 : Request to join K1 through any kelab my-kart committee member.

Step 2 : The main committee will evaluate whether the applicant can be considered for upgrading into K1.

Step 3 : The applicant if accepted will be under the committee's observation for at least the next 3 races in K3. The minimum 3 race observation period in K3 is to evaluate the applicant's level of sportsmanship, race ethics, safety practices and kart handling skills.

A session(s) on 100cc or 125cc may be required to complete the evaluation process.

Successful Applicants:
Successful applicants will be allowed to join the K1 race on probation for at least 3 races. Again, the minimum 3 race probation period in K1 will be use to gauge the driver's level of sportsmanship, race ethics, safety practices and kart handling skills.

Unsatisfactory Probation Period:
If the committee is not satisfied with the driver's performance for whatsoever reason during the the min 3 race probation period in K1, he/she will be demoted back to K3 and can only reapply for K1 in the next season.

Upgrading from K3 to K2 guidelines

policy

The general policy for upgrading from k3 is that drivers must be able to race in faster karts in a safe and ethical way. Drivers should also support my-kart's objectives.

guidelines

Drivers wishing to upgrade from k3 to k2 should be regulars of my-kart DRIVERS series events.

What is regular may change from time to time, but typically a driver who has recently participated in more than 3 DRIVERS series events can be considered regular. However, it is best that the 3 races are considered AFTER their application for upgrade in order for the committee to be able to consciously observe the applicant.

Drivers wishing to upgrade from k3 to k2 should also support my-kart's objectives.

While this is a subjective matter, the committee will be observing on and off track attitudes of the applicant. Volunteer work, good on track ethics, no negative experiences are some signs of drivers with the necessary requirements to meet the upgrade requirements.

Drivers must be members of the club and pay the required damage deposit. For the 2010 season, the damage deposit for both k1 & k2 are RM600. The damage deposit will be used if there are damages to your kart. Drivers are required to top up before they can participate in the next races.

Feel free to provide feedback on this thread.

Cessation of DRIVERS series in 2013

Since 2002, my-kart has been organising amateur rental karting events in its mission of popularising grassroots motorsports. We have now close to 10 full seasons of the DRIVERS series races, and we've in the past had the TEAMS series and once off events such as the Mad Mega Endurance races, with even an 8 hour race run in pouring rain!

Yes, we are a bunch of crazy, petrol breathing, adrenaline junkies. We are kids who never had the opportunity to pursue their dreams of being dashing racing car drivers. We are a group of pokai racing enthusiasts who one day decided to have a race amongst friends. And from that initial group of friends we became my-kart. Participants to our events reached as high as 60-70 on average at one time.

From the early days we started with the 80cc K3 category and gradually added the 100cc K2 category and then the 125cc K1 category.

All these could not have been possible without the great camaraderie, the passion and the great sportsmen & sportswomen amongst all of you. For that we are eternally grateful. True to the my-kart spirit of volunteerism, we have been able to organise all this together with your help. The passion for the sport, the values we hold dear, the respect we have for each other shines strongly through.

The my-kart values and the brand stands for the spirit of volunteerism, collaboration and teamwork.

Through all this, the best part is being able to meet so many great people and make many new friends. We've met people from different countries, and from very different backgrounds and from all ages. This is the beauty and diversity of my-kart that makes us proud. Along the way, we discovered some really fast drivers, hidden talent and consumate competitors. Some of them are making progress in track car racing, and even international single seater racing series. Imagine, some of these wouldn't have discovered their ability in racing without the my-kart platform. This is the cruel thing about motorsport - very few really get the opportunity to pursue their passions in racing.

Some of us wished we had been exposed at a much much younger age...

But as with all good things, there is an end.

A number of us core my-kart members have been deliberating this since the early part of 2012. You may remember that we made a call to members to restructure the various karting series in March 2012. Unfortunately, this was not possible at the time. Now as we head towards the end of the 2012 season, the time has come for us to make that very difficult decision to call it a day for my-kart's DRIVERS series... which is very much the core of my-kart. Some of us otais have been at this for the longest of times, and it is time for us to step away, as we need fresh new ideas and direction. We would have liked for other members to take over our roles, after all my-kart very much belongs to all of us. but I guess none wanted to.

So the next DRIVERS series race, Round 10 of the 2012 season will be the last DRIVERS series race of the era. 2013 will be a new year and the end of an old chapter.

The good news is that from our my-kart DRIVERS series, we have seen at least two new prominent amateur karting groups emerge - namely, the Initial Karting Competizione ("IKC") and the Kart Racing Development ("KRD") groups. Both have been successfully organising competitive amateur karting series through out 2012 - so the needs of the amateur racing enthusiast still lives on in IKC and KRD. We are confident that the sport we love so much will grow stronger.

Even so, we've always said that my-kart - the brand, its values, its purpose, its responsibility and its spirit is available for whomever wishes to take over from the otais. So do let us know if you wish to do this.

Until then, forza my-kart!

my-KART MEGA Enduro series

The my-KART Mega Enduro series was introduced in 2005 to add a teamworking element into the my-KART race series. The Mega Enduro series is run separately from the drivers' championship KART series. Typically a Enduro team comprises 4 drivers with an aggregate minimum weight. The race is run non-stop over a pre-determined period of time.

The Mega Enduro series aims to encourage other people to join my-KART race events as team members are required to look for drivers to participate and hence spreads the word around. It also enhances the membership bonding as drivers work together towards a common goal.

The Mega Enduro series emphasises consistency, race craft, adaptability, team strategy in addition to the prerequisites of individual driver racing skill.

As with all my-KART series, the Mega Enduro series emphasises the spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie.

The details and rules of the Mega Enduro series are contained within this section.

1. Registration Closing Date:

12 hours before start of event registrations.

2. Maximum Number of Teams:

12 teams

3. Entry Fees:

RM700 per team of 4 drivers. This fee will cover the kart rental, Sepang track fee, St John's Ambulance and my-KART admin.

4. Starting Procedure:

4.1 Grid order: All drivers from each team will be weighed upon registration on the day. The aggregate weight of the drivers will determine the starting order for the endurance race. The heaviest team will start first, and the lightest last. Any team below the minimum weight will not be allowed to start.

The teams will be required to stop on the grid at the designated positions by the track marshalls, and will be green flagged once the next team is within 3 kart lengths behind.

4.3 Kart failures on the formation lap: Any kart failure on the formation lap will not cause the start to be aborted, unless there are special circumstances deemed by the race director appropriate for a re-start (eg, multiple kart failures).

4.4 Aborted Start: This will be allowed under special circumstances. If the start is aborted, the re-start follows the same normal starting procedure.

5. Driving Time:

The race length is 90 minutes. The teams are required to change drivers (mandatory) during each of the 3 pitstop windows. The pitstop windows will be 10 minutes long each, and will be spaced equally apart during the full race duration.

6. Refuelling:

6.1 When to refuel: Each team may need to refuel during the course of the race. The team will need to determine when is the most appropriate time for the refuelling to take place. Refuelling can be carried out at any time deemed appropriate by the team during the race.

6.2 Where & How to refuel: The teams will be advised during the pre-race drivers briefing on the location of the refuelling bay. The engines will need to be switched off and the driver must alight from the kart for the refuelling. Refuelling can only be done by the Kart & Circuit Operator's crew.

The teams shall comprise 4 drivers each. The aggregate weights of all the 4 drivers must be no less than 280kgs. If practical, ballasts may be added to the underweight teams. The team's minimum weight requirement will be reduced by 10kgs for every female driver in the team. For example, if a team has 3 male and 1 female driver, the minimum weight shall be 280kg - 10kgs = 270kgs. Hence, a team comprising 4 female drivers shall have a minimum weight requirement of 240kgs.

A1 Team Malaysia * pitstop * my-kart end 07/08 race rules & regs

RACE FORMAT:

- Only CLOCK-WISE direction is allowed.

- Team leaders arrange the driving order for qualifying and race.

- Team leaders are free to decide the number of driver(s) doing qualifying heat but ALL DRIVERS have to take part in the endurance race.

- The team can do as many laps as they want during the 20mins qualifying heat, the team that sets the fastest lap will be starting from pole position.

- Team leaders CAN decide and inform amount of starting fuel as well as number of refueling pitstop to pit crew before the race starts. Otherwise, pit crew will decide. Every team has to do at least 3 pit stop including at least 1 refueling pitstop.

- The endurance race will begin with "rolling start", first pitstop window opens from 20th to 30th min of the race followed by second window opens from 45th to 55th min of the race and the final pit window opens from 70th to 80th min. The drivers are allowed to choose when to come in according to the guideline mentioned above. Refueling shall be applied during AT LEAST one of the 3 pitstop

- All team shall cover as many laps as possible within the 100 minutes endurance race, once the clock hits 10.50am, the first driver who cross the start-finish line will be consider as driving on the final lap.

KART ASSIGNMENT

- Each team will be given ONE(1) go-kart during the briefing session. Team will have to use the assigned go-kart throughout the event. Kart change is allowed only if there is a mechanical failure not caused by driver (eg. not an accident), AND ONLY IF there are available spare karts.

- The assignment will be on "lucky draw" basis.

- The standard weight for male driver is 65kg and 50kg for ladies. Any team that has aggregate weight below average has to run with ballast on. Minimum weights may be adjusted on race day subject to ballast availability. Weights are without race gear.

For example: A team consists of two men and two women has a total weight of 253kg. The standard weight for such combination is 230kg (65x2 + 50x2) thus this team is excluded from ballast.

On the other hand, if another full men team weights 255kg, they are 11kg below average, hence this team is required to run with 1 ballast, (260-255) / 4 = 1.25kg (or the nearest available ballast weight)

IN CASE OF ANY KART DAMAGE DUE TO ACCIDENTS, DRIVER(S) INVOLVED SHALL SETTLE DAMAGES WITH CITY-KARTING. PITSTOP, MY-KART AND A1 TEAM MALAYSIA WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ACCIDENTS AND / OR INJURIES.

Finalisation of my-kart event calendars

for those people who have been asking me to change the dates for round 06/2009: all i have to say is, i'm sorry i will not change the dates on account of requests from a few. the calendar had been fixed since the beginning of the year, and it is intended that the calendar remains for better planning in the greater scheme of things. it is naturally possible that some of us will miss the odd race or two... which is why we only count the best 8 scores out of 10 rounds.

having a firm calendar is important as we speak to outsiders / external parties and talk about what my-kart is about. having firm calendars as opposed to tentative or changing ones gives us more credibility as a race series promoter, and not just another social event organiser.

so let's put this issue to rest and let the event run its course.

for the 2010 calendar, lets get forward views of all important dates in 2010 early so we can plan the calendar accordingly. as i have indicated before, in the open-source spirit of my-kart, let's work together to review the future calendars before we finalise in january of that year.

Official Chicken Wings Session

[b]Official Chicken Wings Session[/b]

As we all know; Chicken Wings is a session where everyone meet up on a specific day and basically have fun flapping those wings. From the feedbacks that we got from Rd1, 2008; there seems to be some participants that aren't still 100% familiar with some rules and regulations on the track, attitude on the track, the basic racing line, what can be done and what can't be done on the track and many more. And that is where the [b]Official Chicken Wings Session[/b] comes in.

[b]What does the Official Chicken Wings do?[/b]
Basically everyone is going to have fun karting and flapping those wings. We have added a session where there will be a briefing on what are the basic knowledge you will need during race day. As we all know that having fun on the track is totally a different scenario compare to the race day. You will get pressure from other drivers, all the karts are taking the same corner at once during the start and many more.

So this [b]Official Chicken Wings[/b] will guide you through all the possible needed knowledge about racing and not practice laps. And all these guides are only given to people who needs them. For example; people who are new to karting, people who have not driven a kart before, people who do not really understand what is the actual racing lines, people who are not clear of the rules and regulations, people who are not familiar with how a proper rolling start should be and many more.

[b]What will happen on the day of the Official Chicken Wings?[/b]
On the day of the [b]Official Chicken Wings[/b], if there are no new drivers or people that needed attention, basically guys.. we will just have FUN! If there are new drivers or people that needed attention on that day, these people will be given a brief on all the possible needed knowledge about karting and racing. They will be going through theory and practical.

For theory, we will cover all the needed topics so that the new drivers or old ones; if you guys think that you need to refresh; will have at least an idea of what are the proper racing lines (clockwise), the rules and regulations, what is allow on the track and what is not allow, the proper rolling start, attitude on the track and many more. Of course, after knowing all these theories, it all comes down to the driver's discipline. After all, even professional F1 drivers do make silly mistakes once in a while.

As for practical, there will be 2 different choices to choose from.
([b]Needed Attention Drivers = NAD[/b])
Choice 1/
The NAD will follow the whole Chicken Winger group out to the track. Which means the old and the NAD will be in the same Chicken Wings Session. Each NAD will be appointed one senior driver. The NAD and the senior driver will start from the back of the pack.

As soon as the session starts, NAD are not allowed to overtake the front pack unless the front runners are really slow. Overtaking are not allowed during cornering. Overtaking is allowed on the straights. The appointed senior driver will then tail you and observe your driving craft for 3 laps.

After 3 laps, the senior driver will try to overtake the NAD. Once the NAD are being overtook by the senior drivers, the NAD will have to try their very best to keep as close as possible to the senior drivers and memorizes what is shown by the senior drivers. The senior drivers will have an option to either wait for you or wave goodbye to you and join the other wingers; only if you are unable to catch up. If you can stick close to the senior drivers all the way; Congratulations~ you have learn a lot on the session.

Which means, for Choice 1 session, NAD are only given [b]3 laps attention[/b] and will be given advices from the appointed senior drivers after the session ended. Please bear in mind that, there are many sessions of Chicken Wings, and the 3 laps attention are only given to [b]one session only[/b]. The NAD will [b]pay for their own session[/b].

Choice 2/
The NAD will [b]rent the 2seaterkart[/b] and will also [b]pay for the session[/b]. The appointed senior driver will first driver the kart for 3 laps; showing the NAD the proper racing line. After 3 laps, the NAD and the senior driver will switch places. The senior driver will guide the NAD through the remaining minutes of the session.

For this choice, the NAD will be given full attention for the whole 10 minutes. Advice will be given after the 10 minutes observation. The NAD can go out as many session as they can afford; as long as they pay for the rent of the 2seaterkart.

But the best way to learn even faster is to take it down to the track and learn from the buayas; joining them on the Chicken Wings; trying your very best to tail them or even overtake them.

Restructuring all our karting series

my-kart today is into its 10th year of organising amateur karting series for all enthusiasts like us.

the idea is to make racing affordable & accessible, fun & exciting, safe & professional and sustainable & relevent.

we are proud that the my-kart family has grown over the years, with many great people who above all are passionate about the sport and keen to help each other out.

in order to sustain this idea and philosophy for the next 10 years and more, we need to do a major rethink.

i would like to invite all of you to join us in rethinking the my-kart formula. we need a major refresh, new blood, new ideas and new people. the old folks like me - will need to step aside to give opportunities for others to take ownership of my-kart.

of late, we have seen more my-karters organising events using new and exciting formula - which has proven to be successful.

but we also need to ensure that the many new events do not clash or stretch the same enthusiasts.

we are currently exploring expanding the my-kart product range to focus specifically on the following categories:

1- CADET category
2- ENTRY LEVEL category
3- INTERMEDIATE category
4- ADVANCE category

our friends mike siva, baharin, iskandar and francis have recently introduced the Karting & Racing Development (KRD) series running on cadet karts, 80cc and 125cc (private and rental) karts (usually last Sunday of the month). facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/KRD/277090602349223

likewise, our friends syamsul razmin, zul atfi and hasmi izan are organising the Initial Karting Competizione (IKC) series running on 100cc yamahas at the Plus Speedway circuit (usually second Saturday of the month). facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Initial-Karting-Competizione/1...

In a meeting on 3rd March 2012, the group agreed to combine (streamline) all the above categories into one event (or product) for each category. The effective date of this is to be decided further upon decision on:
1- combining the calendar of events
2- dealing with the points system of more than one series

Subsequent to the above meeting, further discussions were held on 11th March and 14th March. Unfortunately, it was not possible to combine all the events under KRD into the my-kart umbrella. Nevertheless, we will respect KRD's decision on this matter and we wish them all the best in their plans.

The my-kart team (inclusive IKC members Syamsul, Hasmi and Zul Atfi) will be working together to re-introduce the 125cc rentals, as well as expanding the 100cc rentals. So stay tuned.

As such, the revised series streamlining will be as follows:

categoryold seriesold series datesnew my-kart seriesnew series dates
CADETn/an/an/an/a
ENTRY LEVELDRIVERS series K3first saturdayK80first saturday (DRIVERS series calendar)
INTERMEDIATEIKC 100cc Yamahassecond weekendIKC100second weekend (IKC calendar)
ADVANCEDRIVERS series 2012 K1 (150cc*)first saturdayK125 (rental)first saturday (DRIVERS series calendar)

*the 150cc 4-stroke machines will be re-positioned for the INTERMEDIATE series and help expand the options for the new my-kart IKC100 series.

naming of the series are still being refined. feel free to provide ideas.

feel free to discuss.

TEAMS series

This section will contain the reference documents for the new my-kart TEAMS series.

The new TEAMS series is focussed on the following:

1. teamwork, strategy
2. spectator focussed
3. branding focussed

It is envisaged that the TEAMS series will bring in a wider level of interest, publicity and corporate involvement in (amateur) karting.

The following pages will describe the TEAMS series a bit more.

2008 TEAMS series concept (superceded for 2013)

This is a preliminary conceptual document posted in the my-KART Core group to solicit ideas, discussions, and in the end refine the my-KART TEAMS series concept.

Goals of TEAMS series

The TEAMS series aims to be unabashedly commercial in nature.

  • bring in more spectators
  • drive more corporate participation (eg sponsorship)
  • bring in more race participants
  • replicatable country wide
  • venue neutral - provided 10 karts in good condition can be made available

Concept in a nutshell

Pits teams against teams throughout a year long racing series. Follows football league-style format.

Description

Each event will feature a two team match. Each team could comprise 5 drivers, and all 5 drivers will race against the 5 drivers from the other team. All drivers will be given points (even for non-finishes) according to final positions. There will be podium bonus points to encourage higher finishing positions. The team that wins will be the one that scores the most aggregate points.

It is expected that around 10 teams will participate for the year long series. Each team will then "compete" a total of 18 times in the year - ie each team will compete with the 9 other teams on separate events, and twice against each opponent team (yeah, like football's home and away matches).

The competition format will be similar to the DRIVERS sprint format - with 2 qualifying races and a final. All 5 drivers from both teams will race together.

Selection of drivers will be key. This shall be done in two steps similar to the NFL franchise selection process:

  1. assign "franchise" team slots to the team principals
  2. each team principal shall select one driver from the existing K3, K2 and K1 pools in order of seeding of Team Principals from the previous season. the process will complete once all teams have 5 drivers and 2 subs. Other drivers not selected (including unseeded drivers, and newcomers) will become free agents available throughout the year.

to make this interesting, each team principal will need to put a full year investment which will go towards the year end championship prize.

i will discuss these following matters later:

  • sponsor arrangements
  • in season driver transfers
I will further develop this document based on your comments.... so please discuss

If you were to download these data onto a spreadsheet and calculate the average, median lap times - both with and without the lap time outliers, you will find the following results:

Based on the above data, we conclude that every 10kg difference in weight (driver & kart) results in approximately 1sec difference in lap time.

Amending this to the 2014 TEAMS series rules (relevant extracts of full rules http://club.my-kart.org/node/3853 below) -

4.0 Team Details
4.1 / Drivers per Team: 3 Drivers
4.2 / Only the TEAM collects points for the full season. The TEAM is considered the same if at least one driver has driven in all of 5 races. The captain may decide to change drivers from one round to another allowing flexibility.
4.3 / Every team is allowed to bring in any sponsors of their own. The side pods of the kart are reserved for the sponsors. The front pods are reserved for my-kart usage.
4.4 / Each driver will drive ONLY ONE (1) time during the entire race.
4.5 / Minimum total team weight: 225kg being the Aggregate Weight of the 3 drivers (Excluding kart)
4.6 / There is no handicap for female drivers or a team with all female drivers.
4.7 / When the team does not meet the Minimum Weight requirements, ballast will be added to the team’s kart. However, the maximum ballast allowed will be 10kg per kart. Therefore, the aggregate driver weights must not be below 195kg (the Allowable Weight) in order to be ballasted for race entry. Underweight teams will be allowed to race, but for each 15kg below the Allowable Weight (or 5kg per driver), the team will be penalised 0.5secs per lap (Shah Alam) each multiplied by the expected duration of the race.
4.8 / The time penalty will be applied by the organisers at the start of the race, meaning the teams with a time penalty will start after the time penalty has been served. For example: if a team's Aggregate Weight is 180kg, it needs to carry 10kg ballasts, AND will be penalised 0.5secs lap time penalty per lap over the expected 80 lap race at Shah Alam. This team will be held for 40secs after the race has started before it can start its own race.

Seek your feedback for the TEAMS series

Thank you all for participating the first #mykart TEAMS series event for 2013.

We believe it was a fairly successful series which garnered a good participation through the 5 races.

roundnumber of teamsnumber of driverscumulative teams
1216321
2236928
3206033
4164837
5154537

Overall we saw a throughput of 95 teams and 285 drivers. A throughput is defined as the number of "seats" taken during the year, ignoring repeat participants.

But looking at the trend it would appear that the participation is tapering off in the last two rounds. We would like to understand why this is so, and what can be done to reverse the trend moving forward if we want to sustain the series.

Thus, we would like to have your feedbacks on what we can do to improve the 2014 series and beyond.

Not just that, we would like more volunteers to help us out.

TEAMS series draft proposal (2013)

For 2013, my-kart will be re-introducing the TEAMS series based on an endurance format.

Goals of TEAMS series (2013)

  • bring more spectators
  • drive more corporate participation (eg sponsorship)
  • bring in more race participants
  • venue neutral - provided sufficient karts in good condition can be made available

Concept in a nutshell

It is similar to The Edge magazine's annual Rat Race, but run annually over a few races in a year. The Teams and brands are the heroes, with a secondary emphasis on drivers. Each race format are endurance formats, rather than short sprint formats.

We expect around 10 teams participating for the year long series. The series duration is spread over a few months with a minimum of 4 races annually.

Each team selects their drivers, but the drivers need not be the same drivers throughout the year except that the team principal who could be one of the drivers should not change.

Each team is encouraged to bring sponsors, team uniforms etc to strengthen the team identity.

Sponsors have the option of sponsoring only the team or the whole series.

A possible consideration is for teams to also allow sponsor for the race equipment on leased basis.
