A rear bumper update for all classes will be an option for the 2012 race season. The full rear bumper will be mandatory on all karts competing with the BKC for the year 2013.
The rear bumper must extend to a point between the middle and outside of the rear tires. This can be accomplished by replacing the rear bumper with one that extends between the center and outside of the rear tires. The new specification can be met by bolting an additional steel bumper to the existing rear bumper or the addition of tubular extensions to the existing rear bumper. The use of any type of extension must be securely mounted and safety wired.
The exact wording of this rule is not yet approved and may be altered by the membership. The final version will be approved at the January meeting.
