That depends on the race organizer. The rules are whatever they say they are.

Have your equipment all ready. Pay attention to the race schedule. You'll need a pit person. Be sure to go marshal PROMPTLY after your race. HAVE FUN!

1. Not sure about big events, but most club level and series racing you can

2. Same as #1

3. Find a pit man, register, practice, driver meeting, check in, run heat, turn marshall, help pit, run heat, ect.

4. Make sure all batteries are charged, Test radio system, check bearings, tune before you go to the track, then fine tune during practice, keep tires clean, get pit man and marshalling duties worked out

5. At club level yes, not sure about big events
