BKC to CES Class Conversion Table

The following table is the conversion for BKC classes to the CES classes you'll see on their daily schedule. Sorry, no Kid Karts at Blackhawk Farms. The classes are listed in the order they appear in the BKC rulebook. Race numbers are provided from the CES daily schedule as of 05/14/2013 and are tentative and subject to change. The CES website will have the most current information, though we will attempt to post the latest updates as soon as possible.

Important note regarding rain points: Per rule 5.1.3.1 in the BKC rulebook, all rain points for events not held at Briggs & Stratton Raceway Park must be purchased in person. Do not call the track, you must register with Bingo Emmons or Chris Burke. If CES continues to hold a race in the rain, all Badger Kart Club entrants will be awarded rain points. You may race with CES if you like, but there will be no penalty for not doing so.

Race Procedures

  • Race lineups will be determined by registration order. First to register gets the first position, etc.
  • Starts will be LeMans-style standing starts.
  • Races will be of the timed, enduro type. The checkered flag is displayed after time has elapsed, not after a specified number of laps.
  • Brake tethers are required for all classes as a safety device in case your primary brake rod or cable fails. You can use a throttle cable attached to your brake pedal and master cylinder. Click here to download instructions for attaching a tether to your kart.
  • Important safety notice: unlike Briggs & Stratton Raceway Park, Blackhawk Farms has corners where you cannot see the exit from corner entry. Because of this and the higher speeds associated with enduro racing, it is important to look at the flag stands for yellow flags. If a corner worker has displayed a yellow flag, be prepared for a kart to be directly in the racing line.
