-All karts will be required to have 4 legible numbers on the kart to be scored. If Scoring determines the numbers are non-legible, the karter will have to change the numbers as to the approval of Scoring before being allowed to participate. If in doubt, check with scorekeepers prior to heats beginning. Having four numbers that are readable by Scorers is a pre-tech requirement. Chrome numbers, red numbers on black or black numbers on red or blue are not permitted. If competitor’s numbers are found not readable by officials, the competitor will be notified and will be required to change them to something that is readable before the problem kart is raced. Approved numbers are mandatory and must be installed before the kart can be approved in pre-tech.
