RACE DAY PROCEDURES
- At the start of the race day, there will be a mandatory drivers meeting. After the drivers meeting, race registration begins. Once you have paid your registration for the day, there is no refund.
- All vehicles registered to race must have a lap transponder installed. It is your responsibility to ensure that your transponder is in good working order, and is recognised by the lap timing software. If this is your first race, you need to approach the Race Director or the Computer Operator so that they can get your transponder set up. This should be done before the drivers’ meeting and registration. If your transponder is not reading, laps will not be recorded manually. Only laps recorded by the computer will count.
- The track on race days is under the control of the race director. If you are instructed to leave the track, do so as quickly as possible. Practice procedure will be controlled by the Race Director.
- In the event of a race meeting being rained out,the race will be held on the following Sunday. This is at the discretion of the Race Director.
