Round 1 results are finally posted! I gave you guys a few extra days to get registered at sykart.raceoffline.com and thanks to those of you who did.
There are a couple of minor errors in the first round results but I'll make sure to fix them before they affect championships. There were also one or two drivers I could not manually input, so if you are missing from the results please let me know tomorrow during Round 2 and I'll make sure to get you your Round 1 points!
1st night of our 2016 Winter/Spring league went great, thanks to everybody who came out! Results will be posted within a day or two of each race (want to give time for people to voice concerns/complaints/whatever) at sykart.raceoffline.com
If you have time please create a profile for yourself at the site and make sure you're included in all relevant classes. If you cannot do this by Wednesday afternoon I'll add you myself so I can get results posted by Wednesday evening.
The only real hiccup we had last night was with scheduling. Since we were behind schedule with our practice & walk-in races we got a pretty late start for league racing. In the upcoming weeks I'll be sure to try and keep the schedule a bit tighter so everybody can get home at a reasonable hour. The schedule should look something like this:
P3 & GT0 Kart Draw: 7PM
P3 & GT0 Qualifying: 7:05
P3 & GT0 Race: 7:15
P1 & GT2 Kart Draw: 7:45
P1 & GT2 Qualyfying: 7:50
P1 & GT2 Race: 8PM
P2 & GT1 Kart Draw: 8:30
P2 & GT1 Qualifying: 8:35
P2 & GT1 Race: 8:45
It's a rare day when everything goes 100% to plan, but I'll do my best to stick as close to this schedule as possible. For those of you who prefer not to use Facebook I'll also post these updates to the raceoffline page so we can all stay in touch.
Thanks again everybody! Looks like it'll be a fun season!
Format is similar to Fall League of 2015. Go ahead and register!
Fall Leagues are coming up quick! We'll be running a 6 week season running each Wednesday night beginning October 7th at 7pm.
The first week we'll have a drivers meeting to discuss rule changes and general orientation for rookies. Kart selection for Round 1 will be random and starting order will be determined by a 5 lap qualifying session.
One twist this season is that we are going to run 3 different track layouts since our current layout makes passing very difficult. Weeks 1 and 4 will be on the normal layout, 2 and 5 will be run in the reverse direction, and weeks 3 and 6 will be run on a shortened version of the track with a long back straight. We will give our league drivers opportunity to practice on the new layouts during endurance racing the Monday prior to each league race.
If you haven't raced in our league before, registration for the season is $25 and each individual race costs $30. If you prepay the whole season you get the final race free! In order to register please create an account here and either phone in your $25 registration or come to the track to do it in person. The more of you who register early the easier the first night will be for everybody!
If you're uncertain whether you're going to run or not I strongly suggest creating your account here anyway. If you pay the $25 registration but decide not to race in the league we are happy to either refund your money back or roll it into credit here at the track.
Feel free to send any questions you have as messages to this Facebook page, or just give us a call at Sykart. Thanks guys and hope to see you all on the 7th!
One of our customers put together this webpage to help you guys choose your kart for leagues!
This site pulls the top ten lap times for each kart, averages those times, and ranks the karts accordingly. Keep in mind that the karts are worked on extensively on Mondays leading up to league races so the bottom half of the list will not be as weak as they appear. Also this site does not take into account who was driving, how much they weigh, how much traffic was on track, or what time of day/week.
So use this as a starting point to get an idea of what karts you might end up driving and what karts to keep an eye on during practice!
There were some changes on a web-site related to new timing system installed in SyKart. No changes from your prospective, but if something is not working please let me know (use Contact Us form). Also please register ASAP - this will help to update first week's results faster.

Registration is open
This will be a Spring League already. It is going to be exciting.
Go ahead and sign up for the league which starts February 11
Forum didn't quite work out, so I decided to create facebook page. Main issue with the forum was that there was a lot of maintenance required to keep it clean from spammers. Facebook should be free from these issues (hopefully). It also has a better visibility and features.
You can find a link on menu line as well. Go ahead and like it :)
All races were pretty clean tonight and fun to watch. Race results are posted. There are couple new columns on Race Results page.
- CLAvg - average time based only on clean laps - Pit Stop lap, first 2 laps and any outstanding (>25%) laps are excluded from this average time.
- PitLap and PitTime - that when you pitted and what was your lap time on a pit
- CR - Consistency rating (0-100). This tells how consistently you were close to your fast laps.
Qualifying results posted, however you don't find yourself until you register on a web-site (button in top right corner). This is new requirement. Last season registration was optional and John had to manually add non-registered users to each class. This time we want to avoid this as much as possible. Also this is just one time deal. You don't need to do it next league.
Please go ahead and register! You registration simplifies John's work since he won't need to add all of you manually, especially if you are not registered on web-site at all.
Also I'm planning to add different driver statistics on web-site and it will work ONLY for REGISTERED users.
Thanks to everybody who participated this season! We saw some great championship battles and some amazing races to watch over the course of the season, nice job keeping it clean (for the most part) and helping our series grow and improve each and every season.
I think I forgot to announce the day/time for this season's awards banquet last night. As usual, we will hold it the Monday following the last race, so April 9th next week. Try and get to Sykart around 6:30 or so for some food and we'll get trophies handed out around 7pm. Also, now is the time to start thinking about teams for the Sykart vs League drivers team endurance race! I'm looking for around 8 or 9 teams of 3. Remember, this race is just for fun! (And to show you how good all of us employees actually are)
Congratulations to those of you who made it into the Round 8 Finale! Every class was extremely hard fought this season, with only P1 having a clear cut final five racers. GT3 actually ended with a tie for 5th place, Bob Brands taking the spot by virtue of the total points tie breaker. GT2 and P2 drivers also had it tough with so many people competing in the class.
Again, congratulations to everybody who made it to Round 8 and good luck next week! I hope those of you who just missed the mark in the regular season will still come and support your fellow racers!
Now that we're done with Round 5 there are a few classes with clear favorites to win and a few that are still very close. If Chris Jeppesen can keep it up in P1 it will be hard for anybody to catch him. Same goes for Greg Gargett and Tony Hana in P2 and GT3. On the other hand, the fight for GT1, GT2 and P3 are up for grabs and it'll be exciting to see who can step up before the double points finale.
Remember to hit up the forum on this site if you have any questions about our league or if you just want to talk some crap to each other!
With Round 3 in the books the points battles are really starting to take shape. The GT2 and P2 battles are especially interesting with so many drivers in the mix. With the new points system we are seeing a more obvious advantage to those drivers who have steady attendance vs those who have missed a week or two. It will be very interesting to see how things shape up in the following weeks!
I thought we had established the rules regarding pit exits, but a few of you guys left the pit exit lane early (or disregarded it entirely). I hope tonight has solidified the fact that the pit exit lane is not an option. Make every effort to follow the lane, whether there is oncoming traffic or not, and you can avoid a black flag!
New Gallery section added to the menu, where you can see pictures from last two seasons. I'll keep posted pictures there. If you have your own pictures of the league feel free to bring them to SyKart on a flash drive/CD/DVD and I'll post them.
Thanks everybody for making Round 1 a great success!! Results are already posted here on raceoffline thanks to Vladimir, check em out and make sure we haven't made any mistakes.
Remember, Round 1 always seems fairly calm and uneventful (despite a few great battles on track!) but Round 2 all the race winners and veterans start in the back while those with bad luck or less experience will start up front so the battles will be intense right from lap 1! Take care to be patient in Round 2 as ill timed pass attempts could result in black flags. Leave room for each other and all will be well :)
A couple notes from Round 1:
-Mike Henderson removed himself from the P1 race because an on track incident aggravated an old injury. He was not disqualified and will start on pole position in Round 2
-Several drivers were warned for excessive contact in Round 1, these could easily become black flag penalties in Round 2 when the races are more closely contested.
We'll be going with the 4 race format. It won't be exactly as posted on Facebook though so make sure you let me know if you want to run in a class other than what I've got you in.
So far the following changes have been made:
Stuart Welker will be starting 3rd in P1
Kevin Fletcher has opted out of P1 and will run P2 instead
Also, P2 will run @ 210Lbs since the 90% of the drivers are around 195-205Lbs and there may not be enough weight to go around if everybody has to weigh up to 220 (depending on what GT class P2 is paired with).
Everybody check out our preliminary grid posted up on Facebook! I think I have everybody in the classes they wanted, though some of you will not be able to run multiple classes. Right now I am leaning toward Option B with 4 races per night. Post up on Facebook if you would rather run Option A with only 3 races!
I need everybody to let me know what class you intend to run so I can finalize the grid for Round 1.
I am playing with the idea of trimming GT2/P2 down to the point where I can just have one run group. This would leave only 8 drivers in GT2 and 7 drivers in P2. The main reason for this is the amount of overlap between GT2/GT3/P2 drivers will make coordinating run groups very difficult.
I will post a preliminary grid for Round 1 by the end of the day.
I think we never had a cental place where we shere our race results, track championships and post multimedia. This web-site suppose to help with all this. It will also provide different statistics and keep the history of past leagues, its heroes and provide information about future events. In addition it will be great place for picture and video sharing.
Have fun and Race Offline!
