DYNAMIC TESTS

Scoring formulas and other guidelines for the dynamic tests will be uploaded in the team accounts.

BRAKE TEST

It’s mandatory for a vehicle to pass the brake test to participate in any of the dynamic events. The vehicle must stop in a straight line after the brake is applied on the vehicle. Each vehicle will be given 2 attempts to pass the brake test. if the vehicle passes the test in first attempt it will not be given any other trials. At the finish line the karts are expected to apply full brakes and the brakes must lock. After locking, rolling of tires (where the brakes are applied) will not be allowed in any circumstances. Skidding of the tires is allowed provided that the vehicle does not deviate more than 30° from the initial course of mo tion otherwise the attempt will be nullified. Note: Vehicle’s speed must be more than 40 kmph while attempting brake test. Brake Test is not having any points, but it is mandatory for a vehicle to pass the test to go for any of the dynamic event.

ACCELERATION TEST

The objective of the acceleration determines the time it takes the vehicle to accelerate along 23m long flat course. During the acceleration test each team may make two (2) attempts with or without different drivers. Scoring will be based on the better of the two attempts.

SKID PAD TEST

The objective of the skid-pad event is to measure the Kart cornering ability on a flat surface while making a constant-radius turn.

SKID PAD LAYOUT

There will be two (2) pairs of concentric circles in a figure of eight pattern. The centres of these circles will be 7.5m apart. The inner circles will be 4 m in diameter, and the outer circles will be 9 m in diameter. The driving path will be the2.5 m path between the inner and outer circles. The vehicles will enter and exit through gates on a 2m wide path that is tangential to the circles where they meet. The line between the centres of the circles defines the start/stop line. A lap is defined as travelling around one (1) of the circles from the start/stop line and returning to the start/stop line. PROCEDURE: The vehicles will enter perpendicular to the figure eight and will have to take two full lap of the figure of eight track. NOTE: Each team may make two (2) attempts may or may not with different drivers. Scoring will be based on the better of the two attempts.

PENALTIES

CONES DOWN OR OUT: A penalty of several seconds will be added to the time forevery cone that is knocked ―down or outǁ (including gate cones). DNF: Vehicles that spin-out can continue as long as they have not gone off course will be classified as DNF. INCORRECTLAPS: Vehicles that donot follow procedure, i.e. run an incorrect number of laps or run the Laps in the wrong sequence will be classified as DNF (Did Not Finish).

AUTOCROSS

The objective of the autocross event is to evaluate the vehicle’s maneuverability and handling qualities on a tight course without the hindrance of competing vehicles. The autocross course will combine the performance features of acceleration, braking, and cornering into one event. PROCEDURE: The vehicle will be staged such that the front wheels are 3 m (19.7 feet) behind the starting line. The timer starts only after the vehicle crosses the start line. There will be no particular order of the vehicles to run each heat. The organizer will determine the allowable windows for each heat and retains the right to adjust for weather or technical delays. NOTE: Each team will get one (1) attempt only.
