Rules, Safety, and Racing Etiquette
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
As part of the evolution of this series, we will discuss and point out areas where improvement are needed.
As with any organized sport or event, the safety of participants and spectators is at the top of our list.
Followed swiftly by fairgame, sportsmanship and fun.
In order to enable this to take place we have to establish standards, and rules.
I will start by addressing some things that i think need to be implimented immediately.
Short Tracking. Obviously in fairness can not be permitted.
Question is how to deal with it. Etiquette would suggest that if this happens you wait for those who were ahead of you to pass you..assuming you can not get back in place.
The penalty I suggest is 1st time warning, 2nd time driver looses a lap, 3rd driver looses best qualify time, 4th disqualification.
Each driver is permitted ONE pit person. That person shall NOT leave the pit area during a race except to retrieve a vehicle offtrack.
Pit persons shall not leave the designated pit area to enter onto the track area.
Pit persons may only place the vehicle back onto to pit lane.
Drivers must pit at their designated race time, unless otherwise subsituted at the approval of the race coordinator. (substitution person must be approved by the coordinator as well) It is the drivers responsibility to find a suitable replacement. That subsitute is the responsibility of the original driver, any violations or conduct issues will reflect that driver.
Marshalls are not permitted to repair vehicles. Disabled vehicles must be taken to the nearest out edge of the track as soon as possible.
Only designated marshalls are permitted to handle vehicles on the track during a race. No one else may enter the track to retreive or repair a vehicle.
When marshalling a vehicle it should be returned to the area where it left the racing surface.
These include language, failure to comply with event rules off the track (IE no alcohol, etc), Race etiquette
Includes driving, vehicle operation, or performance that constitutes a hazard to other vehicles in the race, unsportsmanlike driving, intentional hitting of other vehicles, intentional short tracking, intentional corner cutting, and blocking.
IFMAR penalty basically suggest
3 warnings during an event for sportsmanship type violations lead to disqualification.
In relation to pit type violation.
1st warning or stop go penalty
2nd during main disqualification, during qual 1 lap penalty.
Marshalling violations go towards the best qual or main time penalties, up to disqualificatoin.
The rules will be implimented immediately, the penalties are open to discussion.
ROAR, IFMAR or a modification of both can be discussed.
