F100 SoCal Adds Classes for the Briggs LO206 Engine

The Formula 100 Karting Series and F100 SoCal are excited to announce the addition of a new set of classes to the F100 SoCal class lineup! Dubbed the “Formula 206” classes, F100 has added an LO206 Junior and LO206 Senior class to its class structure!

The LO206 Junior class will utilize the stock black slide with a 310 lb minimum weight, while the LO206 Senior class will utilize the stock black slide with a 370 lb minimum weight. Both the Formula 206 LO206 Junior and Senior class will use the MG HZ Red as the spec tire in sizes 4.5 front and 6.0 rear. The full Briggs and Stratton LO206 ruleset, as adopted by the NKA, will be utilized for engine tech.

The addition of the Briggs and Stratton LO206 engine package in the Formula 206 classes is the perfect compliment to the 100cc classes that F100 has built its brand of competitive, inclusive, fun and affordable racing around. The Briggs LO206 engine combines low cost and ease of use with a tightly controlled set of rules to create a level playing field for all racers in order to facilitate grassroots participation in kart racing. The Formula 206 LO206 classes represent another great set of classes within F100 that are perfect for racers of all ages, budgets and experience levels to enjoy the sport of kart racing!

F100 SoCal Round #6 DATE CHANGED TO SATURDAY, AUGUST 27th; September Fun Race Date and Location Announced

After some time off, F100 SoCal is getting ready to hit the track for Round #6 of the 2016 season. Originally scheduled for Sunday, August 21st, due to circumstances outside the control of F100, the race date for F100 SoCal Round #6 has been changed. F100 SoCal Round #6 will now take place on Saturday, August 27th at Calspeed Karting Center in Fontana, CA. The location and the track configuration have not changed. Hopefully, the extra few days will give racers ample time to prepare for the event and allow more racers to take part. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Along with the date change for Round #6, F100 has also planned a non-points, fun race for Sunday, September 11th. F100 racers are invited and encouraged to travel to San Diego, CA to race with other F100 racers and the San Diego Kart Association. F100 will run two classes, both utilizing the FK2 rules (more on this soon). This means that racers with HPV/KPV engines will be able to utilize either a 3 pipe or a 4 pipe, depending on their weight. More information on this fun race will be announced shortly, but please keep this date in mind. F100 can help with kart transportation as well, if needed.

With these two exciting events coming up, as well as remaining points races at Willow Springs and at Grange, F100 SoCal is looking forward to an excellent finish to an exciting 2016 racing season! We look forward to racing with you!
