Topic :   TIMER

MISFITS needs to get serious about fund raising!  We are LONG overdue in obtaining a timer for our events!

Having a suitable timer will allow us to add a number of new and different events to our calendar.   Having an accurate timer will allow us to actually begin a Championship Time Trial series in addition to our Championship Racing Series.  The possibilities are endless, but we need the timer in order to expand!

So we will be working on some fund raising ideas and functions this year in order to try to meet our goal!  Donations are welcome as well as any ideas you may have on how we can raise money to meet this goal.

You can see the equipment we are in need of here:

Numbering will then continue in a second row, with the lowest in the second row being directly behind number 1 and continued sequentially.

Racers releasing their brakes before the count of"1" will be disqualified.  Any racer who witnesses this may raise a dispute at the end of the race.

 

RULE RR-3:       WHEELCHAIR/PUSH STARTS - The ONLY propulsion used to get the cars rolling is gravity upon the release of the brakes.  Racers may ONLY make wheelchair, push or Flintstones starts if their kart will not roll off at the start and they wait for all other moving drivers to pass them completely (the rear of their kart is fully past the front of your kart)before making the wheelchair start. 

Those who make a wheelchair/Push/Flintstones start other wise will be scored in LAST place.  Any racer who witnesses this may (should)raise a dispute at the end of the race.

  

During the race:

 

RULE RR-4:        CONTACT- Normal soapbox rules apply. Rubbing is racing;  Kart/kart contact is allowed but HIGHLY discouraged.  Deliberate, Intentional, Unnecessary kart/kart contact meant to do damage, injury or cost finishing positions is not allowed.

Team tactics are DISHONORABLE and should not be entered into.

RULE RR-9:        STOPPING - When you have crossed the finish line, pull off to the side of the road in a controlled manner.  You pick the side unless instructed otherwise prior to the race ,but do keep it controlled.  There is NO reason to make a quick, sudden stop!  You should allow your car to continue straight scrubbing off speed until you can make a safe pull off.  In this way you do not become an obstruction or a hazard to those cars coming in behind you.

 

 

RULE RR-10:      SHOWOFF SKIDS - No showoff skids!! 

This is grounds for immediate Disqualification or Expulsion

 

RULE RR-11:      FINISH LINE CONES - Do not hit the finish line cones!

Start of the race:

RULE RR-1:        STARTING POSITION - Start position will be determined by card draw.

Drivers will line up across the road.  The number of cars per row will be determined by the OD depending on road conditions.

The person who drew start position # 1 will have preference on which side of the road they would like to start the numbering on.

Numbering will then continue in a second row, with the lowest in the second row being directly behind number 1 and continued sequentially.

Any drivers who missed the Driver’s Meeting will not be allowed to participate.

 

RULE RR-2:        RELEASE OF BRAKES - It is the job of the person who drew the #1 starting position to call the start of the race.  Racers will release their brakes upon hearing "1" in the countdown of "3...2...1" 

Racers releasing their brakes before the count of"1" will be disqualified.  Any racer who witnesses this may raise a dispute at the end of the race.

 

RULE RR-3:       WHEELCHAIR/PUSH STARTS - The ONLY propulsion used to get the cars rolling is gravity upon the release of the brakes.  Racers may ONLY make wheelchair, push or Flintstones starts if their kart will not roll off at the start and they wait for all other moving drivers to pass them completely (the rear of their kart is fully past the front of your kart)before making the wheelchair start. 

Those who make a wheelchair/Push/Flintstones start other wise will be scored in LAST place.  Any racer who witnesses this may (should)raise a dispute at the end of the race.

  

During the race:

 

RULE RR-4:        CONTACT- Normal soapbox rules apply. Rubbing is racing;  Kart/kart contact is allowed but HIGHLY discouraged.  Deliberate, Intentional, Unnecessary kart/kart contact meant to do damage, injury or cost finishing positions is not allowed. 

Driver/kart contact and driver/driver contact is not permissible and is grounds for disqualification if this occurs before all involved karts have crossed the finish line.

Disputes for illegal contact may be opened only by the contacted driver.  There will be a review of video.  Absolute visual proof of contact is required.  So get some cameras!

Team tactics are DISHONORABLE and should not be entered into.

 

RULE RR-5:        PASSING- It is the responsibility of the passing driver to make the pass safely;

it is not the responsibility of the driver being passed to do so graciously.

 

RULE RR-6:     If your car is involved in a crash or leaves the race surface, you MUST get the car back into the race unassisted.

If you receive help or assistance in any way to rejoin the race by spectators, other participants, or any other person, you will be scored as a DNF (non-finisher).  So do NOT allow people to help you rejoin the race if you go off.

 

At the end of the race:

 

RULE RR-7:       FINISHERS - In order to be considered a finisher, you MUST drive your car across the finish.  Any car not capable of driving across the finish will be considered a DNF.

 

RULE RR-8:        FINISHING - You have crossed the finish line (aka 'finished') when the very front of the nose of your kart breaks the vertical plane stretching between the finish line cones or other predetermined finish line.

 

RULE RR-9:        STOPPING - When you have crossed the finish line, pull off to the side of the road in a controlled manner.  You pick the side unless instructed otherwise prior to the race ,but do keep it controlled.  There is NO reason to make a quick, sudden stop!  You should allow your car to continue straight scrubbing off speed until you can make a safe pull off.  In this way you do not become an obstruction or a hazard to those cars coming in behind you.

 

 

RULE RR-10:      SHOWOFF SKIDS - No showoff skids!! 

This is grounds for immediate Disqualification or Expulsion

 

RULE RR-11:      FINISH LINE CONES - Do not hit the finish line cones! 

Disruption of the Finish Line Cone may make it difficult to score other participants.

 

RULE RR-12:      TIE FINISH -Tie/finish order disputes will be reviewed from the finish line cameras if cameras were in use.

In the event of a completely indistinguishable tie, all drivers in the tie dispute will be given the opportunity for a re-run.  That re-run may or may not take place on a different hill or even on a different day depending on the circumstances.
