Updates as of July 6th, 2014

  • The tires are still a major concern this year as we are unable to get any better tires in the quantity we need soon enough
  • Teams are always encouraged to research and consider different options to making your tires last longer as in: foam filling, liquid hardening rubber filling, running on higher pressures.   (The committee doesn't know what the right answer is to make these tires last longer but wants teams to know that the tires seem to be of much lower quality than the past years.)

2014 - St. Labre 200 Rules
2014-07-03

Rules as of July 3rd, 2014.

Download 2014-Rules-StLabre200.pdf

Things to note:

  • Qualifying Laps:  All certified carts will lineup at the end of the pit area.  Carts will be let on the track in a staggered fashion so as to let the time keepers be able to time two carts at a time.  As one cart leaves the track another will be let on the track.  Once you leave the track your qualifying attempt is complete.  Carts may do as many laps as they want but they must keep in mind they only have the fuel that is left to start the race.
  • Boundary Marker Penalty:  Hitting boundary markers are cause for marshalls to send a cart to the 15 second penalty box.  This year much of the track will be marked out with plastic foldable pipes so as to be less dangerous than tires.  Barriers will still be in place after the boundary markers but a gap between the markers and the primary barrier will be in place.
  • Race Start:  This year we are honored to have olympian gold medalist Jocelyne Laroque to start the race.   Jocelyne will lead all the carts with her pace cart and leave the track through the pit area.  There shall be no passing of any carts while the pace cart is on the track and until your cart has passed the start/finish line.

We are soooooo proud to have, for the first time, an olympian honorary guest.  Jocelyne Larocque, who was the first to score a goal, for the Canadian women's hockey team, in the 2014 Sochi Olympics.  She will launch the race in her own go-cart, followed by all the 14 go-karts carrying the Canadian Flag in honor of her. 

Thank you to Digital Ghost for the great work on this video.
