Rules; Each riding team member will be issued with a wrist band after signing on, which will be inspected at pit lane exit. Machines will also have the chassis tagged. All parts except chassis/frame can be changed. When riders enter the pit lane they will be issued with a ‘Clip’. This clip must be transferred to the next team rider and handed to the ‘pit exit marshal’ as well as wrist band checking before they are allowed back on to the circuit. Outside assistance can only be given in the work area. Which includes clean goggles to riders etc. On course repairs can only be carried out by the team rider/s – no outside assistance from others. Machines can be towed back to the pit area by other competitors who have signed on and are competing or officials and never against the direction of the course. That lap will not count for the team of the broken down machine. Once machine is repaired or the other team mate handed the clip the team mate can continue, exiting from the pit lane. Pit lane speed will be WALKING PACE ONLY – there will be speed indicator traps and anyone speeding will have earned the team a one lap penalty. Riders must complete the whole of the pit lane distance to exit back on to the track and NOT cut through from one side to the other. At no time should anyone other than an official open the pit lane fencing or ropes. Only competitors can park inside the pit village area. Each team will be allocated a spacious parking bay inside the pit area. Competitors will be issued with parking passes. Others can camp/park in the adjacent area. This is for safety and security reasons – work with us. Please park in accordance with instructions. Machines stay with the riders/teams after technical control – do not alter or tamper with machine setting ie exhaust. The organisers/promoters (QRA/328 Ltd) reserve the right to alter, abandon, postpone or amend any part/content of the event as they see fit if circumstances make it necessary. Course cutting – we will have marshals located everywhere and spotters nominated amongst you who are riding – their reporting of any course cutting will be taken as red and you will be penalised – quite simply, don’t do it and the event will be even more enjoyable, for us all and will last 8 hours. FINAL INSTRUCTION WILL BE ISSUED WITH YOUR ACCEPTANCE. Course: Undulating Open Fields, Hills, Woodlands, forest roads etc. Approx 8 km + lap. Noise Testing; Noise testing will be taking place. We need to preserve venues not lose them. Silencers will be marked/sealed to confirm checking. NB. Noise testing will continue throughout the event – SO COMPLY. Lap Scoring: ORE Events Transponder timing. This area is taped with Blue and White tape which reminds you to SLOW DOWN THROUGH LAP SCORING to WALKING PACE. Machine numbers must be a minimum of 6”. If they are deemed unsuitable for lap scoring you WILL be asked to replace them so ensure the colours are opposite such as black numbers on white background. Front number boards will be supplied. Numbered event bibs will be supplied and kept as memento. Helmets must be to MINIMUM of ACU silver stamped standard and worn and fastened at all times the machine is moving. Lanyard Cut Out must be connected to the pilot at all times that the machine is under power. Marshals; Marshals are always welcomed and are a much needed part of any event.
