Snap-on Stars of Karting Announces 2009 Stars Senior National Class
Over the next week, the Snap-on Stars of Karting Series will be releasing their 2009 national championship class structure one by one. Beginning with the Cadet division, Stars of Karting will release class information and rule changes that pertain to those classes. Any person, driver or team with questions in regards to the '09 class structure is asked to contact Stars of Karting via e-mail to Media@StarsOfKarting.com
The Snap-on Stars of Karting Series is pleased to announce a class name change for the TaG Senior division in 2009. TaG Senior will now be known as Stars Senior National and will return to the Snap-on Stars of Karting Series National Championship.
Utilizing the pre 2009 Parilla Leopard motors, two technical changes will also take place for the fast approaching season. The full length CIK approved rear bumper design will be mandatory for the Stars Senior National division in 2009. Keeping up with safety concerns around the world of karting, the CIK rear bumper has proven to help reduce wheel-to-wheel contact. With the addition of the rear protective device, the Stars Senior National class will now have a minimum weight of 370 Lbs.
The age for the Stars Senior National category shall be 15 years of age and older. A driver's actual age as of December 20, 2008 shall establish his/her "competition age" for the 2009 competition year. Drivers under the required minimum age for a category may start the 2009 competition year provided they have met the age requirement for the category they are participating in on or before July 1, 2009.
Once a driver advances to and competes in the next higher age category in any verifiable National karting competition series, tour or race, at any level, from January 1, 2009 through October 31, 2009, he/she must continue to compete at that age category in Snap-on Stars of K arting competition, and may no longer compete at the lower age category under pain of penalty.
Drivers competing in the Stars Senior National category will hold a B level license and will be permitted to compete in other senior level categories that require that same license level with the age restrictions of 15 years of age and older in 2009 Stars of Karting competition.
The Snap-on Stars of Karting Series will continue to announce their 2009 class structure in the coming week. Stay tuned to www.StarsOfKarting.com for up-to-date news and information regarding the 2009 competition season.
