Safety is the primary concern of NOLA Motorsports at all of its sanctioned or affiliated events. Methods of operation, vehicle construction, track facilities, competition, and practices are under constant review to protect all participants, spectators and to reinforce the safety standards of the sport.

Driver Equipment

Spot checks may be made at any time during an event. In the sole discretion of NSKC officials, safety violations will result in a correction requirement and/or a one finishing position penalty.

Equipment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Helmets
  • Gloves
  • Driving Suits
  • Footwear
  • Neck Brace
  • Rib/Chest Protectors
  • Closed toe shoes

Equipment must coincide with 2020 Rule Book specifics. 


Kart racing has certain inherent risks. Each competitor assumes those risks when they participate in an event. While everyone involved including drivers, crew members, officials, promoters, and NMS have taken measures to reduce the risk of serious injury, the risk cannot be eliminated and will always be present at a high level.

NMS reserves the right to cancel, reschedule, or delay a race at its sole discretion, if the safety of competitors, spectators, crew members, or staff are at risk for any reason.


Parental Consent Forms

Parents or legal guardians for any minor that will be in any restricted area must complete the NOLA Motorsports' “Parental Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement”.
