Competitors will be governed by the most current 2016 SKUSA rule book as posted on the Rulebook page, and well as all supplemental updates posted separately under the RULEBOOK UPDATES section, rule clarifications as described below, and any supplemental rules to be distributed in writing on site. Competitors in the KZ class will also be regulated by the CIK-FIA Rule Book.


SKUSA Membership

All SuperNationals XX competitors must have a current annual SKUSA membership to compete. The cost of an annual membership is $75, is good for a full 12 months, and includes many great benefits. Please see the Membership page for more information. All HONDA drivers (S1, S2, S4, S4 SM) must also be a current member of Honda Racing Line (a free membership program thru HPD) to be eligible for any purses or prizes offered by Honda Performance Development – and this membership must now be renewed annually. Click here for that information: http://hpd.honda.com/racing-line. SKUSA will also have sign up forms at the event.

Race Numbers

You will be assigned your unique and official kart number (and a regional letter designator) when you become an ANNUAL SKUSA member and register for this race. This number/letter combo is required on all 4 sides of your kart for all on-track sessions per SKUSA rule 20.2.2. Please email SKUSA at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to check on your race number if you have not received an email confirmation of your race entry being processed by November 2nd.


Race Number Panels

Please be aware that SKUSA is again making specific number panel colors MANDATORY for ALL CLASSES including KZ at this event. Please see the Race Number Panels page and SKUSA rule 20.2.2 for more info. This is a TECH ITEM. Competitors are responsible for acquiring their own number panels, including any replacements needed on site to remain within compliance throughout the event.

Mandatory Kart Stickers

SKUSA will be providing a set of mandatory sponsor stickers to each driver that must be installed prior to qualifying and kept on their kart for the duration of the event, in order for that driver to be eligible for any and all purses and prizes. These stickers include Supernats XX, VCI Mexico / GP Racing Kart, Las Vegas and 2 SKUSA decals. In addition, all Honda drivers (S1, S2, S4, S4 SM) will have 1 or 2 additional Honda Racing HPD stickers. The S2, Mini Swift, X30 Junior and X30 Senior drivers will be assigned to an initial PRACTICE (P) group, but do not have to place a sticker on the kart. A detailed diagram and additional instructions will accompany the required stickers in each driver registration packet. Extra stickers will be available in Registration for any damaged karts that need replacements.

Race and Practice Tires

Race Tires are marked with serial numbers and bar codes specific to the related entry and are signed out to the participant at the event Tire Desk according to the posted schedule. Race Tires are defined as two (2) sets of Evinco Red M tires (For Mini and Micro Swift, (2) sets of Evinco Blue H tires) purchased from SKUSA as part of the entry process and picked up at the event. For all classes except Swift, the Evinco Red M tire is the spec Race Tire and the only slick that can be used in qualifying, heats, and mains (dry weather). For the Swift classes, the Evinco Blue H tire is the spec Race Tire and the only slick that can be used in qualifying, heats and mains (dry weather).

  • MG-WT (or MG-WZ) RAIN tires are the only spec tires allowed for competition rain sessions (all classes). Competitors are required to purchase 1 set of RAIN tires from SKUSA at time of entry; they can bring their own additional sets of spec RAIN tires, or pre-purchase/pre-order additional from SKUSA. ALL rain tires must have a readable barcode. If a rain race is declared on site, additional instructions will be provided.
  • Tires used in all practice and warm-up sessions must also be the spec tires only, as described above.
  • A total of four (4) front and four (4) rear dry Race Tires may be managed at the discretion of the competitor for qualifying, heats, LCQs, and mains. Should the Race Director declare a wet race, a maximum of TWO sets of spec rain tires may be utilized.
  • The Tire Desk will open and close each day per the published event schedule. Competitors are required to pick up their Race Tires (slicks), rain tires and practice tires purchased from SKUSA during these time periods, and only Race Tires (slicks) received from the Tire Desk and serialized/barcoded for the individual driver are eligible for competition at this event (except in the case of a rain race).
  • Any driver who does not pick up his/her tires according to the schedule will be subject to a 2-position penalty in qualifying.
  • Any tire issues occurring after Tire Desk closure should be reported to the SKUSA Registration desk or SKUSA Tech Director and will be handled on a case by case basis. Per SKUSA rule 20.2.6.4, the bar codes on race tires are mandatory, and may not be defaced or removed; otherwise, disqualification or other penalties will be assessed.
  • Any dispute regarding circumference or other tire measurement must be resolved prior to leaving the tire desk after pickup of event competition tires. No exchanges or replacements will be allowed after the tires leave the area. It is recommended that a tape and marking pen be brought to the tire desk when picking up tires.

Spec Fuel and Oil

For all classes, the spec fuel is VP C12. The spec oil is Motul Kart Grand Prix 2T. Mixing ratio is open spec. Event entry does not include any fuel or oil; fuel and oil will be available for purchase at the event ONLY, and NO fuel is allowed to be brought in by competitors (except a minimal supply of generator fuel).

Practice and Qualifying (All Classes)

See tentative event schedule, and the final schedule to be distributed at the track

KZ Supplementary Rules

We will use current CIK regulations for the class for all engine related specifications with certain exceptions as noted below. That will include exhaust system. Regulations are printed below.

See current CIK Rule Book (article 12) for all engine specifications, and the current SKUSA Rulebook and supplemental rules contained herein for all on-track rules. Note: the SuperNats XX event is not a CIK-FIA championship point’s event for KZ. As such, SKUSA race officials reserve the right to be lenient in rule issue resolutions where safety and/or performance are not impacted.

Exceptions:
  • Article 2.16.4 – “Radiators must be placed above the chassis frame, at a maximum height of 50cm from the ground, at a maximum distance of 55cm ahead of the rear wheels axle…” Due to the potential of extreme heat, the placement and height restrictions will not be enforced by SuperKarts! USA at this event.
  • Article 12, Appendix 1 – “Volume of combustion chamber: 11cc minimum.” SuperKarts! USA uses the same basic process but substitutes Marvel Mystery Oil as the designated fluid. The Spark plug insert will be the USA specification with insert volume of 2.4 cm3/cc. This results in a total volume of 13.4cm3/cc.
  • Due to the dimensions of the EVINCO spec tire, the maximum wheel/tire width is increased from 135mm to 138mm. There is a fuel farm to comply with local fire regulations, but no Parc Ferme.
