By using the AKRA and 206Cup rule packages, the racer will have a clear and accurate set of rules that can be understood and implemented easily each race.
Their series will kickoff on February 27 with following dates of April 23, May 28, June 25, July 23, August 27, September 24 and October 22. Race entry is $55, pit passes are $10 and BMP will offer free parking. The February 27 event will start at 7:30am and will allow racers 3 rounds of practice, a 10-lap heat race and then a 14-lap final race.
