|Reminder of SKUSA’s Racing Age/Category Regulation|

As we encountered a few inconsistencies last season and have received many calls and emails lately requesting clarification, we’d like to again call your attention to SKUSA rule 15.3 regarding age categories:
“Once a driver competes in the next higher age category in any verifiable karting competition event, at any level, they must continue to compete at that age category in SKUSA-sanctioned events, and may no longer compete in the lower age category.”
Put simply, once a driver runs in a higher age category – and we determine that is the case (even in Club events) – the driver will have to continue to race in this next higher age category.
The only automatic exception to this rule that will be allowed (as posted on 2/12/16) is the one regarding a single Cadet class running at the club level -- combining Micro and Mini Swift drivers, as specifically described HERE.
Another reminder for all classes is that SKUSA considers the ‘competition age’ of the driver to be the age that driver will be as of the LAST day of the competition year.
