Racing Etiquette Drivers are expected to follow some simple guidelines for racing etiquette. ▪ No abusive language toward Marshalls or other drivers will be tolerated. ▪ No corner-cutting or short-cutting the track. If you accidentally short-cut, wait either for a marshal to return you to the correct part of the track, or wait long enough to ensure that no advantage is gained. This applies even if you accidentally short-cut due to a crash that is not your fault. ▪ No ‘hacking’ other drivers. Intentionally or recklessly crashing into other cars is called hacking. It’s your responsibility to ensure you leave the drivers around you enough space – including not charging into corners and using other cars as brakes! ▪ When being lapped by faster drivers, it’s polite to leave a little space to ensure they can get by within minimal delay. You don’t need to pull off the track or stop – just leave a little room and talk on the driver’s stand. For example, you might say “Go inside on the next corner Bob” and just leave enough room for the driver lapping you to do so. ▪ If you feel aggrieved about an incident on the track, please take it up with the race director. Marshalling Marshalling is part of racing. The task of a Marshall is to upright overturned cars, return crashed vehicles to the racetrack, and separate vehicles that have become locked together. Guidelines for Marshall (all of us) are: ▪ Top two finishers will Marshall the next race. If you fail to Marshall your race result may be cancelled. Repeated failure may result in exclusion from the event. ▪ Your first responsibility as a Marshall is your own safety. Don’t enter the track unless you are certain there are no oncoming vehicles that threaten your safety. This is particularly true if you are marshalling on the straightaways. ▪ Please don’t eat, drink, smoke or film with a cell phone while marshalling. ▪ If multiple vehicles crash, generally try to fix them in the order they crash. ▪ Place vehicles back on track facing the correct direction. ▪ If a driver has the throttle opened, don’t pick up the vehicle. Standing over it, hands in the air, indicates you are waiting for the driver to release the throttle. ▪ Marshalls are not in place to repair broken vehicles. If a vehicle breaks, remove it from the track and pass it around the outside (through other Marshalls) back to the pit area for repairs. Heat race rules: ▪ Each heat race line up grid max is 6 vehicles. If there are 7 - 8 entries the heat race grid will be divided into two group heat events. ▪ Heat races are used to qualify for the mains. This is to determine who qualifies for the “A” main and lower mains. ▪ Each club race event will have two heat races. Special events may have a different format. ▪ Each heat group may compete or there may be a resort for both races utilizing the standard rule package for heat races. Main rules ▪ “A” Main heat is timed or lap event. Lower mains through the B main will be of lower time or laps than the A Main. ▪ Lineup will be based on best finish/time from heat races as determined by the computer system. ▪ There is only one “A” main event per (class) race event.
Vehicle transponder Each vehicle is required to have their own transponder that will work with the MYLAP timing system. These transponders can be found at: https://www.mylaps.com/en. If a transponder fails to work during a heat race that vehicle is awarded last place. If the transponder isn’t fixed; the driver can continue to race but will not be scored. If a transponder fails to work after the first heat race all rules in the above paragraph apply. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure his/her transponder works properly at all times.
Track Suspension Any person/driver that behaves in a manner considered disrespectful towards other drivers or marshals will receive a warning. Continued behavior will result in a suspension for the driver not vehicle of a selected number of races decided by the race director. Any driver that operates their vehicle in manner that is determined to be reckless and/or intentionally running into other vehicles for personal/team gain will receive a warning by the race director and/or lose driver points and/or put on probation. Continued behavior will result in driver suspension determined by race director. Any vehicle caught using equipment outside the rules for that particular class will be disqualified for that race event. Continued practice of this type will result in a suspension from the track. Drivers not following rules of the host track and removed by track owners may not be allowed back to the track. Regardless of suspension or forfeit of season no track entry fees will be returned. Drivers who fail to properly execute their duties as marshals will receive a warning by the race director and put on probation for a period of races determined by the race director. If at any time during this probation period, the same driver has to be told again to fulfill their marshal duties they will be suspended from the track. Vehicle is still eligible to race with another driver.
