CONCORD, N.C. – The World Karting Association Board of Directors recently voted to approve Raceceiver one-way radio usage for Junior classes at this December 27-29 WKA / Tri-State Dirt World Championships at Daytona International Speedway.
The Raceceiver one-way radios will be mandatory for all Junior divisions, comprising Junior 1, Junior 2 and Junior 3.
Raceceiver radios will not be mandatory for FCKL junior champ classes.
Raceceiver representatives will be on hand at Daytona and will be set up in close proximity to the grid. Competitors may rent a Raceceiver for the weekend, including ear buds, which the competitor may keep at weekend’s end, for only $20.
For competitors interested in purchasing a Raceceiver radio for future use, a special WKA Daytona price will be offered. Normal retail is approximately $120, however, the WKA Daytona special price will be less.
Junior competitors will not be allowed on the track without a working Raceceiver radio. Officials are confident this rule will shorten race time and allow the event to be completely in a timely fashion.
Dirt series throughout the Southeast already have implemented mandatory usage of Raceceiver radios with good results.
