- Abusive, offensive and unsportsmanlike conduct will result in immediate penalties

being imposed.

- Drivers are cautioned that they are responsible for the actions of their pit crews

- Failure to perform required duties will result in a penalty.

- Drivers and/or pit crews who are unable to marshal due to a disability are required

to nominate an acceptable substitute.

 

BLACK FLAG

- The race director will demand the removal from the track of any car which is found to

be dragging on the track or interfering with other cars like continually de-slotting. The

car may be repaired and returned to the track. If the problem continues the black flag

will be enforced again.

 

PENALTIES

- If required, the race director will apply penalties for rule infractions.

- Penalties may range from warnings to exclusion from the event according to the

severity of the offence.

 

LAP COUNTER

- The “Johnson Racing Systems” computer system incorporates the following unique

features which drivers must be aware of :

- Rider Detection - The system will implement an automatic “track call” if it detects a

lap time shorter than a pre-programmed time delay and the lap is not counted. This

time delay is usually set to 1/10th of a second shorter than the fastest qualifier. Cars,

which cross the lap counter on the wrong lane causing such a “track call”, will be

replaced on the correct lane immediately before the lap counter, thereby eliminating

any gained or lost laps. Drivers should also be aware that the system treats each

bracket as a continuation of the proceeding bracket. Therefore if a car is moved

forward on the track during a lane change it will trigger a short lap “track call” when it

crosses the lap counter. If this should happen then the offending car will not be

credited with the lap and will restart from where it stopped. This is effectively a one

lap penalty for cheating during lane changes.

- Time Factor - At the end of the last bracket for each race all cars must continue until

they cross the lap counter. As each car crosses the lap counter the power on their

lane is shut off by the computer. This eliminates the need to take footage and means

that all positions on the computer are correct at the end of racing. each car is given a

time factor, which is the time from when the bracket expired, to when the car crossed

the lap counter (accurate to 1,000th of a second). Drivers must be aware that the race

does not finish until they all cross the lap counter or a minimum of 10 seconds

expires.

 

TRACK CALLS

- Track Calls will be initiated only in the following circumstances :

- Automatic rider track call.

- Cars off on the main straight or in banked corners.

- Un-marshalable car.

- A marshal has too many cars off to cope with.

- Marshal not in position.

- Fault on track or timing system.

 

DISPUTES and INTERPRETATION of the RULES.

- The race Directors decision is bound and final and there is no appeal on the decision.

 

SMOKING

- In the interest of safety and health there will be no smoking within the raceway at all

times.
