These are the seven basic racing flags which are designed as instant visual notification for drivers and spectators alike. Checkered Flag: The event is over. Finish the lap and proceed to the pits at a slower rate of speed. White Flag: One lap remaining to the conclusion of the race. Green Flag: Displayed at the start of practice or a race and is kept visible as long as the track is clean and clear for competition. Red Flag: Stop immediately! The race has been stopped due to unsafe conditions. Yellow Flag: Commonly known as the "caution flag", is shown when the track is partially blocked by an accident, emergency vehicles or objects on the track. While a yellow flag is in use drivers are to slow down, use caution, hold position and not pass other karts. Black Flag: Finish the lap and return to the pits because of defective equipment or hazardous driving techniques. The black flag in a rolled position indicates a warning to a driver that there may be a problem.
1. The Flag man will have full control of the races subject to the rules. No one will be allowed to personally confront the flag man about a call during the race.

If passing is done before the cone the driver will be sent the back of the line. All karts will run to the outside of the cone. A spinout will not be an automatic yellow flag.
