The championship event will be held over 2 days. It will be the big test for the drivers to find 2024’s NZ Champion in each category.


The IORK events are run over 2 days and a couple of days will be set prior for drivers to come and practice.


Qualifying Races

A.      Each driver will race in 6 x 25 laps qualifying races.

B.      During each race you can score qualifying points by finishing as high as you can, finishing first place is worth the most points (64 points), and down to 15th place is worth 32 points. (Please see our points table in Section 8).

C.      After the 6 qualifying races - If there are 2 or more drivers with the same amount of total points on the Points Leader Board, the ranking will be determined in this order. 1. Least amount of penalties. 2. Average podium finish. 3. Average race finish position (highest). 4. Positions gained during racing. 5. 6-lap grudge match based on average time (race Gap)

All of the above will only take place at the end of the qualifying races and prior to the Final championship races.


Finalist Races

After the 6 qualifying races and all finalists are decided there will no longer be points, the final race will be decided on finishing positions, First, Second and Third.


D.      The driver who qualifies top on points gets to pick either their grid position or the kart they would like to race in the final. This option will be given to all the drivers in the order of highest to lowest qualifiers. If you decide to pick your kart a grid draw will be done once all drivers have had their choice. If you decide to pick your grid, again you will have to wait until the other qualifiers have had their choice, then you will get to draw your kart in the order of highest to lowest points qualifier. E.g. Five drivers decide on the top 7 grid positions, and the others pick Karts the next 8 grids will be drawn in points order (highest points back).

Of course, the final is a longer race with more pit stops. The big question will be, is it worth the gamble to get your favourite kart but lose a front grid?

After your 6 qualifying races the top 12 points-scoring drivers in each category will qualify for the IORK final, IORK NZ Championship race, for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in NZ.

The race programme will be confirmed approximately 48 hours prior to the event start date.
