-All competitors are required to work the event. Qualified replacements may be used as substitutes in worker assignments. However, workers must notify the Chief of Course prior to the substitution. Failure to comply or properly perform assigned duties will result in additional work assignments or disqualification from the event, as executed by the organizers.
-Course workers must be on their feet at all times while cars are competing.
-While on course, all competition vehicles MUST BE identified by a car number and appropriate car class which must be visible from the timing and scoring area. Cars not meeting this requirement will not be scored.
-Upon successfully completing scrutineering inspection, the Scrutineer will provide a mark to be fixed to the exterior of the car for the duration of the event in a place visible to the Starter (upper left corner of the windshield is recommended). Cars must show the Scrutineer’s official mark or they will not be allowed to enter the course.
-Items that fail scrutineering inspection (eg. old helmets) may be impounded, and will be returned after the completion of the event.
-Regardless of the results of the scrutineering inspection, the entrant/owner is fully responsibile for the safety and soundness of the vehicle and equipment, for full and complete disclosure of all modifications, and for properly classifying the vehicle.
-Cars will run in numerical order as determined at the Driver’s Meeting. For cars with two drivers there will be a minimum spacing of 5 minutes or 5 spaces.
-Cars must be presented to the starter in order and prior to starting time or forfeit that run (DNS). Exception: Drivers of cars with mechanical
difficulty shall have 10 minutes after the car is scheduled to start, to present the car at the start line. Grid personnel will verify the mechanical
difficulty, and will refer the request for a mechanical delay to the Chief Steward in cases where the competitor may gain an unfair advantage by delaying a run, for example changing weather conditions.
-Directional pylons (pylons which are laid on their side) are for informational purposes and do not count if hit. Directional pylons placed directly adjacent to a penalty pylon must be obeyed or a DNF will result. Directional pylons not adjacent to a penalty pylon are for informational
purposes only and do not result in a DNF if not followed. If a directional pylon displaces a penalty pylon, the pylon penalty will be assessed.
-A penalty will be assessed for each displaced course entry and exit pylon. The course may be lined on both sides, weather permitting. Crossing a line incurs no penalty.
-All entrants are expected to be responsible for their own garbage. Please clean up before you leave the site.
