Kart racing is controlled by a number of different flags. At any race meeting, there will be a number of points around the track designated and manned as flag points. At these points, a yellow or blue flag may be displayed. In addition to these, the Clerks of the Course may also use a variety of different flags. It is extremely important that every competitor is familiar with every flag and obeys them at all times. 

Strict penalties will be imposed for failing to observe or obey the specific instructions of any given flag.
