Races are held most club days along with ‘free’ sailing time. The Canterbury Blokart Club runs three race classes. These are Performamce, Modified and Production. Performance blokarts are those that have pods (an aerodynamic shell) and other blokart performance enhancing components such as carbon-fibre mast sections. Production blokarts are the ‘out of the bag’ ready to sail blokart and don’t have pods. Modified blokarts also don’t have pods but can use any other blokart performance enhancing components. The Modified class was established by the Canterbury Blokart Club and is not officially recognised by NZBAI. The Top of the South (Nelson) Blokart Club also race Modified class Blokarts.
