Flags & Safety Car: Flag rules for this event can be found in Section 8, Page 25 of the General Competition Rules. Safety Car procedure and rules are laid out in Appendix H, Page 70.
Starting Grid: The starting grid shall be determined by the marshals with possible thought given to the speed of your car, its colour and any other arbitrary bit of information they deem appropriate.
The Start: The start shall be a rolling start behind a pace car. The car on Pole Position, when the pace car has entered the pit lane, shall determine the starting pace until the green flag is displayed from the starter’s bridge indicating the start of the race.
The Race: The race will be a three hour endurance race for sedans. The car with the most laps completed after three hours of racing will be declared the winner.
Pit Stops: Each car will be required to complete two mandatory pit stops during the race, which shall each be a minimum of 5 minutes + your best lap time of that race on that day, as recorded in timing and scoring race logs. Pit stops may not be combined into one stop; there must be at least one complete scoreable lap between pit stops (i.e. two laps from when the car leaves the pits to when it re-enters). Max pit speed 40 km per hour will be enforced. Penalties will be applied for carelessness. Driver changes may take place during a pit stop. The car shall be switched off before the driver exits the vehicle. The next driver shall be properly belted in prior to restarting the car.
Refueling: If refueling is to be done, the car must be switched off, the driver out of the car and a team member standing by with a fire extinguisher while a suited and helmeted crew member fuels the vehicle. No other work can be performed on the car while it is being fueled. Pit lane: no open-toed shoes, or shorts allowed. Only pit crew and drivers and officials are allowed on pit lane.
Alcohol: NO alcoholic beverages may be consumed in the paddock/pit area before the end of the race day program. No driver may consume alcohol 8 hours before competing. Drivers may be asked to submit to a breathalyzer test.
Common Sense: While this is a race, the drivers are requested to use common sense when confronted with a situation that may lead to an accident or damage to a car. Rough driving will be penalized.
