Welcome to the Hyperdrive Teen Champion League
This competition if for 11 to 15 year old’s that are 140cm or above and capable of driving a
Hyperdrive Adult Kart. The eight-week competition will run like a typical Grand Prix over the
course of the first two weeks. This means that each competitor will get to race three heats
per night: a practice, a qualifier, and a race with grid start. Then over the course of the next
six weeks, the 3 heats will be a qualifier, a race with grid start, and a reverse grid start race
or reverse track race. You will race against the same competitors over the eight weeks.
Points will be allocated for each race, both regular, reverse grid, and reverse track.

League Rules
Arrival Time
Please arrive at Hyperdrive at least 30 minutes prior to your first heat. Late drivers
will most likely forfeit their race position on that evening. Charges will still apply.
Race Roster and Announcements
A race time roster will be sent out at before the start of the league competition.
Please add our Facebook Champion League page for all the latest updates.
Kart Numbers
Each racer will have a different kart number each week. There will be several
different karts amongst the eight competitors. There may also be weeks when the
shifter karts are used, this means not everyone will get a go in each kart.
Competitors will use the same kart for all heats on the evening. Kart numbers will
rotate so that everybody drives most karts once.
Official Rule Book Location and Updates
There will be a master copy of the rule book always available at this location here
Practice Heat4
This heat is to get comfortable with the kart you have been assigned for the night.
You will have this kart for the entire Grand Prix. You cannot choose karts or switch
karts.
Qualifying Heat
During the Qualifying heat, try to set the best lap time in your kart. The fastest lap
time will start in pole position for the final race and will receive 1 bonus point. Make
sure to all give each other lots of space during this heat.
Grid Start Race Heat
4 All heats will be 18 laps on the Sprint Track and 8 Laps on the Enduro Track
Page 4 of 9
The race heat will be a grid start race, racing for position. Your start position will be
determined by the qualifying round best lap time. Other Race heats that can be run
over the Champion League are:
Reverse Grid Race Heat, in which your grid position will be determined by the
reverse of your qualifying result.
Reverse Track is just like a normal race heat but, going the opposite direction on the
track, this can be done as a normal or reverse grid race, but only on the Sprint Track.
Lucky dip grid order. The grid order will be determined by a random draw and there
will be no qualifying session.
Rounds can be made up of any combination of practice, qualifying and race heats.
Shifter Kart Rounds
Some rounds may be run in the Shifter Karts. These karts are assigned in weight
order with heaviest picking first and lightest picking last.
Results
Points and results will be posted on the Hyperdrive Facebook page and Instagram
page after each Grand Prix that week.

Track Rules & Penalties
Qualifying Penalties
If a racer is driving slow and does not do everything they can to stay out of the way
(off the racing line) of qualifiers that are on a flying lap, they will be given a one place
penalty.
If a racer does not comply with a track marshal’s instructions, they may be given a
penalty also.
Racing Penalties
There will be 5 and 10 second slowed penalties given for breaking rules. The
penalties will be given out by one of the track referees. All penalties are final.
Penalties will slow your kart down for 5 or 10 seconds, after the 5 or 10 seconds,
your kart will automatically speed back up.
Penalties will be applied in accordance with the rules. Track referees will be as
consistent with penalties as possible.
You must not press the accelerator pedal before the start lights go green.
You must not push another kart into the barriers. If any 2 karts are side by side on
the track, then the kart on the outside of the track or any corner must give space to
the kart on the inside of any corner of at least one kart’s space.
You must not bump another kart on purpose. Small bumps will be allowed, however
any move from a racer that bumps another kart which causes the other kart to lose
traction or spin out will result in a penalty, whether on purpose or accident.
You must not remove items off your person in a way that affects other racers.
Diving into a corner and bumping another kart will result in a penalty. The racer must
hold a position next to the other racer before the corner to be able to utilise the
inside line of the corner.
Page 6 of 9
In all races you must not hit the barriers too hard or push someone into the barriers,
or you will be given a penalty.
We will be especially strict with penalties on the hairpin corner at the end of the
straight outside and the hairpin corner on the inside.
We will be especially strict on the first lap, if you are the main cause of an incident
because you have broken any of these rules, you will get a 10 second penalty.
If you are involved in a crash, it is up to you, the racer, to free the kart of the crash by
utilising the reverse button procedure. A track referee will intervene if they feel it is
necessary. You must give way to other racers whilst passing the crash area.
If your karts are slowed to speed 1 because of a crash, you must not overtake any
karts that are not involved in the crash.
Track referees’ decisions are FINAL. Please do not dispute decisions with track
referees at any time.
You may not receive a penalty as soon as an infraction of the rules has occurred, this
is because track referees may need to confirm which racer was at fault before the
penalty is given. Penalties could happen up to 2 laps after an infraction.
Penalties may be given in three different places on track. On the main straight
outside, after the esses on the inside track, on the straight that leads back inside
from outside.
If you know you have been given a penalty, stick to the side of the track you are
already on.

General Rules
The competition league is designed to be a fun event that anyone who meets the
minimum age and height requirements can compete in. Any competitor or spectator
that does not compete or spectate in the spirit of fun, may be penalised, or asked to
leave the centre. Please do not compete if you feel that you may take the
competition too seriously.
All competitors must be between 11 and 15 years in age, and 140cm or above to
compete.
Track referees’ decisions are FINAL. Please do not dispute decisions with track
referees at any time.

If you are sick or cannot make it to your race for some reason, then you may have
someone else race in your place. The replacement must be registered as a
Hyperdrive customer and they must abide by the rules. It is up to you to provide a
copy of the rules to anyone who may race in your place, and ensure they are aware
of them all.

Any substitute racer will be penalised 4 points, or eight points if they are a past or
present league racer or Hyperdrive staff member. Reserve drivers that race in week
eight will only get 50% of points.
If multiple infractions continue to occur over multiple occasions, a Track Marshal
may place a 1 race suspension on the driver. If further infractions occur this will
increase to 2 weeks, and then If they continue, the competitor may be asked to leave
the League if unable to comply. No refunds will be given, and any costs will still incur.
Hyperdrive will continue to maintain all karts to a very high standard, however,
should a kart breakdown in the middle of a heat, everything will be done to repair or
replace the kart as quickly as possible. However, as breakdowns are a part of real
racing events, no compensation or advantage towards the competition will be given
should this occur. Hyperdrive may offer a free race to use at another time, however.
There are many other fun activities and side events that may occur over the course
of the Champion League, these will be covered either on the first evening of your
league or as the League Progresses.
