Written by Michael Polizzi
Sunday, 23 October 2011
We are a traveling group that run our own rules package and point system at multiple tracks in the western and central NY & Pennsylvania state areas.
The BKC will always do what we can to accommodate racers and there equipment in our class structures. You can see provisions have been made to run the Animal Senior with World Formula Lites/Masters and the Yamaha 4 Hole cans with the World Formula Lites/Masters. Contact us to help us fit you in.
Junior classes run a box stock animal motor package with no alterations allowed. Senior classes run a Briggs World Formula motor, Unmodified as shipped from Briggs and Stratton. All BKC classes run a spec. tire (Burris 55 series) on all karts.
Our goal is to have our competitors learn how to drive and set up there chassis to get the most performance they can out of them. Not learn how to write a bigger check than the next guy!
That said here are the basic classes as proposed for the 2012 rules package.
