The 2017 Sodi World Series (SWS) is an international ranking of the top Sodi rental karts drivers in the world, with championship races held in France the following May. This year, both On Track Karting locations will participate as partner tracks in the SWS Sprint CUP and Junior CUP (On Track Karting’s participation in the Team CUP is still TBD for 2017). Individuals can get more info on the Sodi World Series and sign-up for FREE at sodiwseries.com.
How does it work?
Interested participants must sign-up as an SWS driver at sodiwseries.com and select the appropriate partner track (On Track Karting Brookfield or On Track Karting Wallingford). Throughout the year, On Track Karting will offer SWS races for which registered drivers will earn SWS points. To participate in an SWS race, drivers must first register with On Track Karting for the race, then sign-up as a participant for that particular race on the SWS website (sodiwseries.com). Total points awarded for a particular race are based the total number of participants, and worldwide SWS rankings will be based on each driver’s top ten scores in 2017.
Open to ages 15* and up. Each partner track will offer at least 2 Sprint CUP races per month in 2017: a 100-lap enduro (OTK100) on the second Saturday and a 25-lap Sprint race the last Wednesday (Wallingford) and Thursday (Brookfield) for the top 16 in points for the month in the Wednesday/Thursday night races. Additional Sprint races may be scheduled throughout the year to offer drivers more opportunities to earn SWS points. If our top drivers qualify for the finals in France, On Track Karting will help cover the costs of participating in the SWS Finals (entry fee, airfare, hotel) as follows:
$3,000 for On Track Karting’s top Sprint CUP Driver
$1,000 for On Track Karting’s number 2 Sprint CUP Driver
Winners will be announced/recognized at our awards banquet next January.
*Drivers who turn 15 by the end of 2017 can participate in the Sprint Cup
Open to ages 7 to 14. As in past years, each partner track will offer 8-week race leagues for juniors and junior upgrades in the winter, spring, and fall, but this year each of those league races will earn SWS points.
