New Additional Class Pricing and Incentives for LO206 Racers for F100 SoCal Rd #2; LO206 Jr Class Update

F100 has updated our "additional class entry" pricing. Now F100 Members can register to race in additional class for only $1 (when registering through the F100 pre-entry form)! And for members and non-members who register the day of the race at the track, the additional class entry fee is now only $25. This means that racing in two classes at an F100 promoted event is more affordable than ever!

Please keep in mind, that racing in multiple classes is only available for certain classes. In general, if you need a different engine to race in the additional class then you can race in that class as an additional class. For instance, a racer can race in FK1 Masters and F-206 LO206. However, a racer would not be allowed to race in FK2 and FK1 Masters, as these classes use the same base engines. If you have any questions, please contact F100.


To go along with the new "additional class entry" pricing, F100 and F-206 are offering incentives to F-206 LO206 racers. All racers who are new to F-206 will pay the member pre-entry price for race entry if LO206 is the only class they are registering or, if registering for multiple classes, the LO206 class can be added as an additional class to any Non-Member Entry Fee for only $1. For racers using the F100 pre-entry form, the price discount for non-members is automatic and will be applied at checkout. 


F-206 racers can also utilize the "first time racer discount" to save even more! The "first time racer discount" is an account credit applied to the racers Motorsportreg account after the race to be used towards paying fees for future events. Racers must have a working and active Motorsportreg account to receive the discount credit. Racers must use the appropriate request form after their first race to receive the discount credit. Discount is only available as a credit to be used towards a future F100 event.


We are expecting a solid turnout of LO206 racers, as quite a few racers have expressed interest. Take advantage of these great discounts and incentives and come out and race with F100 and F-206!

F100 and F-206 are also considering the addition of an LO206 Junior class. The class will be added to the April 29th race IF 5 racers pre-enter using the F100 pre-entry process, lined below. The F-206 LO206 Junior class has been added to the pre-entry form, and the member price discount for non-members will be automatically applied at checkout. The LO206 Junior class will utilize the same rules as the LO206 Senior class, except the minimum weight is 310 lbs for the LO206 Junior class, and the ages for class are 12 to 15 years of age. Age exceptions can be made with approval. 
If you have any questions, please contact F100. Please see the SoCal Championship Class Structure at the following link for more information:

ATTENTION: F100 Junior Drivers (Ages 11 to 15)

Due to recent changes in the policies of our event insurance provider, Junior racers at all F100 SoCal Championship events this season will be required to compete in their own separate on track session. This means that Junior and Senior racers cannot and will not be put on the track together in any practice, qualifying or race session (up to individual drivers to ensure compliance). A reminder that Junior aged racers are racers who are approximately 11 years old to 15 years old. 

With this in mind, F100 is looking to see how much interest there is from Junior aged racers for our upcoming March 25th race, as well as for the rest of the 2017 season. If you are or are the parent of a Junior aged racer who is interested in racing with F100 and would like to attend the upcoming F100 event or any F100 events this season, please email F100 at your earliest convenience, and preferably no later than this Thursday, March 26th, to express your interest and to discuss how we can grow Junior racer participation in F100 events.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Information about the Additional Morning Practice groups is located at the bottom of the schedule linked below. PLEASE NOTE, racers may only go on track with their appropriate group, particularly only with racers in the same age group (i.e. Cadet, Junior, Senior). NO INTERMIXING OF AGE GROUPS IS ALLOWED DURING ADDITIONAL MORNING PRACTICE. It is the responsibility of each individual racer to ensure that they are on track with the correct age group and that there is no intermixing of age groups. Please see the following link:


Please see the following link for more information regarding Additional Morning Practice:

Quick Guide: SoCal Championship "Additional Morning Practice"

When F100 first started, F100 offered a unique morning practice session known as "Optional Morning Practice." Racers could show up at the track early and go out on the track for practice before the driver's meeting and before the first official practice session. As F100 grew, optional morning practice went away. But now, morning practice is back! 

Additional Morning Practice is like the old optional morning practice session that diehard and longtime F100 racers remember, with a few minor but very important differences. Additional Morning Practice is optional, so racers can choose to participate or not, with no penalty. It occurs while registration is ongoing, so racers wishing to participate should show up at the track as early as possible. What is different is that Additional Morning Practice is done by group only. This means that there is NO INTERMIXING OF GROUPS, PARTICULARLY AND ESPECIALLY AGE GROUPS, DURING ADDITIONAL MORNING PRACTICE. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. Racers may only go on track with their appropriate group, particularly only with racers in the same age group (i.e. Cadet, Junior, Senior/Masters/Grand Masters).  It is the responsibility of each individual racer to ensure that they are on track with the correct age group and that there is no intermixing of age groups. 

Additional morning practice has sessions for Cadets, 125cc Shifter karts and TaG karts, Level 2 Senior racers and Level 1 Senior/Masters/Grand Masters racers breaking in engines, Level 1 Senior/Masters/Grand Masters racers, and Junior aged racers. That's five (5) separate and distinct Additional Morning Practice groups for racers to enjoy. RACERS MAY GO ON TRACK ONLY WITH THEIR APPROPRIATE GROUP.

With the advent of Additional Morning Practice, F100, F206 and SKC provide even more value to racers looking to have an excellent day at the track!
