1. The racing director can make any changes at the track necessary to accommodate track size, car count, time constraints, weather, etc.
2. It is your responsibility to be at the racetrack on time and to have yourself or a representative attend all driver meetings. Any issues or changes discussed at the drivers meeting, applies to all competitors. Arriving late does not release you from compliance.
3. Only one person on the drivers stand at a time during qualifying.
We will setup 10 people at a time. Each driver’s 2 lap qualifying run will
start the first time he/she crosses the scoring loop and ends after the 2nd consecutive lap. The driver will then pull into the pit area and the next driver will begin his/her qualifying run. You have 30 sec from the time you are called to qualify to start your qualifying run or you will be skipped (this includes gas vehicles). If you are skipped you may be allowed a 1 lap qualifying run at the end of the qualifying section if time permits (race directors discretion). At the end of qualifying for the first 10 driver, we will reset the computer and start the next 10. The previous 10 drivers will be expected to corner for the next qualifying session. No exceptions. Losing qualifying position will be the penalty for not corning.
Gas qualifying will follow the same rules as the electric qualifying with the following exception. Each driver’s 4 lap qualifying run will start the first time
he/she crosses the scoring loop and ends after the 4th consecutive lap.
