What you need
All equipment is provided at the track, including helmets, gloves, racesuits and go-karts. All you need are comfortable clothes and a pair of shoes/runners suitable for driving. It's not advised to wear your best clothes as they'll probably get dirty! If you have long hair, it will need to be tied up and tucked under your helmet or into your jacket. If we are racing outdoors and it looks like rain, rain gear may be advisable or a change of clothes. As a lot of our racing takes place during the winter months, don't forget to wrap-up warm!
DIT Karting Jackets are optional, a thirst for racing is not.
We're all here to have a good time, and as go-karting is a sport where people can quite easily get injured, there are a few rules in place to ensure that EVERYONE enjoys themselves!
1. For the love of God, listen to the marshals. They're being PAID to ensure your safety, and we don't want to spend hours trying to convince the track owners that the whole club isn't like that one eejit who caused an incident!
2. When the race ends, WAIT in your kart until everyone has stopped. We've seen people do flips by standing up too early, it's not funny (until you know they're ok!). Also see our first point on track relations!
3. Be aware of your surroundings, and respect the racing line. Taking off another driver unnecessarily will result in an immediate black flag.
4. Have a bit of common sense. If you've never been to the track before, or if weather conditions are different, don't go out all guns blazing!
5. If you touch the engine, you're going to have a bad time. Those things are HOT!
6. No dangly stuff - i.e. Hair, jewellery, scarves, etc. Even if you like being strangled, do it on your own time!
7. Karting under the influence? What are you, an idiot?
