World Formula vs KT100 Superbox; Close Racing in a Combined 2 Stroke and 4 Stroke Class

Check out this race between World Formula and KT100 Superbox (4 hole can) karts. Both karts are run at the same minimum weight. The two different engine packages appear to race well together, with the World Formula kart looking strong. A lot seems to depend on driver and setup. Combining these two classes is an excellent way to promote inclusivity in kart racing and also to increase kart counts. With the number of Superbox KT100 engines and karts floating around on classified sites and in the back of peoples garages and storage units, a combined class at an achievable weight provides a great place to enjoy the sport of kart racing in an affordable and accessible fashion!

F100 Adds Pre-Entry Form to Increase Efficiency and Maximize Track Time for Racers!

The Formula 100 Karting Series is excited to announce the addition of a simple, online and free pre-entry form for our racers. The pre-entry form is designed to provide racers a way to save time on race day. Instead of filling out a form and waiting in line, racers will now be able to fill in their information online, before the event, and have their entry items waiting for them to pick up on race day. Simply fill out the form, head to the track, check in at the registration office upon arrival, pay for your items, and you are all set! Its that easy!

The pre-entry form is not binding, and no payments are taken online before race day, so its a win-win for racers. Racers can claim their spot without any repercussions if something were to come up and they are not able to make the event. F100 does ask that racers not abuse this privilege, and to please follow through on your attendance choices. The F100 pre-entry form is designed for the benefit of our racers, to maximize their track time.

F100 pre-entry opens approximately 4 weeks before the event, and runs until the Wednesday prior to the event. You can find the F100 pre-entry form at the following link:
