SKUSA Tech Update: Spec Fuel
VP C12 added as legal spec fuel alongside MS98 for shifter classes
New SKUSA/ProKart Challenge Regional Series Rules Regarding Spec Fuel
As announced 2-7-2015 in PKC-CA Driver’s Meeting
We have been reviewing our fuel policy for some time, and we appreciate the input many of you have given us. We have discussed this issue with numerous racers, engine builders and kart teams across the country, and appreciate everyone’s candor and input. As a result of that input, we have decided to implement the following changes to our 2015 Spec Fuel program, effective immediately:
– Drivers in the Stock Honda classes may now choose either VP MS98 or VP C12 as the spec fuel for their use at SKUSA events
– All other classes will continue to use VP MS98 as the exclusive spec fuel at SKUSA events
– Motul 2T Grand Prix will continue to be the spec oil for SKUSA events
Additionally, as a test for the next two California Regional PKC events (Willow Springs and Buttonwillow), SKUSA/PKC will not be selling/providing any fuel. SKUSA/PKC will continue to sell/provide the Motul spec oil in 1 liter bottles for purchase at all events (as well as welcome racers to bring their own, as long as it is spec).
We hope that these program adjustments will be a welcome and successful transition for our racers as well as the kart shops and teams that support our program – especially as fuel is available thru most of these organizations. We also encourage racers to begin making arrangements now to acquire the necessary fuel for their next PKC-CA event.
One very important fuel restriction here will be: Only sealed 5-gallon cans of fuel will be allowed to be brought into each PKC event described above. DUE TO LOCAL FIRE ORDINANCES and insurance restrictions, no 55-gallon drums will be allowed to be brought in.
Other SKUSA Regions may elect to continue to provide fuel at their events, so please consult their posted rules or inquire prior to those events.
SKUSA will continue to be the exclusive supplier of the fuel at the 2015 Pro Tour and SuperNationals events, and no fuel will be allowed to be brought into these events by the competitors or outside sources.
