2014 Helmet Info

There has been some discussion about whether IKF will change any helmet rules for 2014.

The following is from the 2013 IKF rules manual and we have confirmation that the 2014 IKF rules will be the same. The following are the helmet specifications that will still be allowed in 2014.

Per IKF HEAD GEAR: Full coverage (full face) helmets designed for competitive motorsports use are mandatory and must comply with one of the following:


Snell Foundation Specifications Legal Until
2005 SA and M 12/20/2015
2005 K 12/20/2015
CMS 2007 (youth helmet) 12/20/2015
CMR 2007 (youth helmet) 12/20/2015
M 2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts only. Not approved for Champ Karts
SA 2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts and Champ Karts
SFI Specifications Legal Until

31.1/2005 12/20/2015
41.1/2005 12/20/2015
24.1/2010 (youth helmet) 12/20/2020

41.1/2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts only. Not approved for Champ Karts


The Helmet rating should be on the inside of the helmet, but sometimes is hard to find. Here is a link for searching for Snell ratings for several helmet models.

Classified Ads

In the past we have had a few intermittent issues with posting ads. This seems to be working now. Just log in and post anything you want to sell that is kart related. I am watching for ads that need to be published on an almost daily basis and will publish your ad when I see it.


Fund Raiser Projects

Special thanks to Dale Smitchger for donating the proceeds of his sprinkler blow-out project to SRK for track improvements. Many SRK members had Dale blow out their sprinklers and he donated the proceeds to the club. This amounted to $480. Thanks again Dale for your hard work

The idea behind this fund raiser was to utilize a skill that can be offered for sale and donate the profits to the club. We have many talented club members who may have skills they can sell to do other fundraising projects. (e.g. Computer Repair, Auto Mechanic, Seamstress, the list could go on and on…) Something to think about……

Ray Smith shared another fundraiser project with the club members at the last club meeting. This project is still in the planning stage and will be at Fastlanes Indoor Kart Racing so you know it will be fun. More details to come so keep an eye on this website.


SRK Bylaws

The SRK Bylaws have been published to the website and are in the Rulebook section.
