  • The Ace Karts League Cup is a new and improved team racing competition.

    It's a 5-on-5 round-by-round tournament consisting of four groups with six teams in each group. It's you and four friends competing as a team against other teams of five drivers.

    Teams will be split into four groups, each comprising of six teams contesting a five-round season. After five rounds the top two teams from each group will then advance to the knockout stage and be invited to the League Cup Finals Nights where they will compete for a chance to become the league cup champions.

    Race duration will be 20 minutes.

    Race Points:

    First place - 10 points

    Second place - 9 points

    Third place - 8 points

    Fourth place - 7 points

    Fifth place - 6 points

    Sixth place - 5 points

    Seventh place - 4 points

    Eighth place - 3 points

    Ninth place - 2 points

    Tenth place - 1 point

    Race points are then added up to determine which team has won the round.

    The division ladder will be ordered first by number of wins and then by race points.

    The League Cup Driver's Champion

    There will be a separate drivers' points table, with each driver's race points being added to the table at the end of each round. The driver with the most points at the end of the season will be named the League Cup Drivers' Champion.

    In the case of two or more drivers being tied for points at the end of the season, those drivers will compete in a 1 lap "shootout" based on fastest lap time to determine a winner.

    Round results, fixtures, photos, videos, news and championship tables will be updated round-by-round and displayed on the Ace Karts website.

  • Weather and karts

    Kart allocation

    On the night, karts will be randomly allocated by the Head Race Marshal.

    Ace Karts general terms and conditions

    When signing up for an Ace Karts driver's profile you are agreeing to all of our normal terms and conditions, rules and regulations.

    Safety briefing

    All drivers will attend a safety marshal briefing before each race (a safety video and verbal briefing). Drivers will be fully briefed on the rules and regulations and race formats.

    Driving rules

    No Bumping – our karts are serious racing machines capable of speeds up to 75km/h. They are not dodgems. So always give your fellow drivers racing room and respect. Do not bump each other or attempt to run karts off the circuit.

    Use your brakes – brake before the corners. Excessive sliding will mean a black flag and you will be removed from the race. The fastest way around our track is to be smooth - the more you slide, the slower you will go.

    Etiquette

    Safety first. Always have safety in front of your mind - you have a duty to preserve the wellbeing of everyone nearby and the equipment you are using. Do not be reckless.

    Don’t cut drivers off. When jostling for position, it can be tempting to speed into a corner and block your opponent out. If your opponent has a clear path and the intention to follow the normal path (known as the racing line), you may not cut him off and cause him to slow abruptly.

    Back markers

    If you are going to be lapped during a race, you must move to the left-hand side of the track and allow the leaders through. Failure to adhere to the flag or light system will see you disqualified from the race.

    Flags and lights

    Yellow flag/lights – caution. No overtaking allowed and all drivers must slow down and fall in behind each other. Once the yellow lights are off, the race continues as normal.

    Blue flag/lights – a racer is preventing a leader from lapping them. If the driver being lapped does not let the leaders though, they will be shown an "into pits" sign for a 10sec penalty or a straight black flag (disqualified from race).

    Red flag/lights – drivers are required to stop and remain in their karts.

    Black flag – driver is disqualified from the race. The Head Race Marshal and Shift Manager will discuss with the driver the reason for their disqualification.

    Team drivers and substitutes

    Each team must nominate five drivers. However, teams can nominate a substitute if a regular driver isn't able to attend a round. To be eligible to race in the Grand Final, drivers must compete in a minimum of three rounds.

    • Winning team: $1000
    • Fastest lap of the season: $200
    • Drivers champion: $500
