ok this isnt strictly an astronomy question

i have to organise a company race day for work and some clients etc at a local gokart track.

we want to make a bit fair and fun for the people that aren't complete rev heads

so given that every cart is the same( well in theory !) i thought there must be a simple formula to account for the weight difference between drivers and give out a trophy for the best speed to weight ratio

i have had personal experiance with this when some little 50kg punk goes past on the long straight and then cant drive for @#$T when he gets to the corners and holds you up

anyway enough ranting

is there a simple formula to work this out ??
