RACE FORMAT

Wheel to wheel racing with staggered offset start. Each team will run a qualifying lap to determine start order – start order will be fastest qualifying time first and descending from there.

Each driver must complete a specific number of laps designated for their class. Finish order will be determined by the time it takes to complete total laps. In the event, you don’t complete all laps of the race, the total number of laps you have completed at the time of curfew will determine your finish order.

Stock and Modified will race together.  Your start order will be determined by your qualifying times as a whole group. Your finish position will be determined by class.

Stock and modified will race to 6 laps with a 1 hour curfew. If competitors have not finished their 6 laps within the curfew, their last completed lap will be their final lap count to determine finishing position.

Unlimited will race to 13 laps with a 2 hour curfew. If competitors have not finished their 13 laps within the curfew, their last completed lap will be their final lap count to determine finishing position.

*There is no corrected time – timer starts when the first vehicle is live. Qualify well to get the best start position.

*If you fail to attempt a qualifying lap, you will be assessed a 1 lap penalty for Stock and Modified and 2 lap penalty for Unlimited.

RACE COURSE/MAP

The course is approximately 4.5km long and includes a variety of terrain with high speed sections, tight forest sections, jumps, rocks and 2 road crossings.

RULES THAT APPLY TO BOTH ROAD CROSSINGS

***THESE RULES ARE IN PLACE TO MAINTAIN THE QUALITY OF THE DITCHES ON EITHER SIDE OF THE CROSSINGS, AS WELL AS THE ROAD ITSELF. THERE ARE FIBRE OPTIC CABLES BURIED IN THE DITCHES THAT WILL COST $10,000 TO REPAIR IN THE EVENT THEY ARE DAMAGED.***

Racers will have the right of way at the road crossings.

WHEN CROSSING THE ROAD – YOU MUST SLOW DOWN 5 METERS BEFORE THE CROSSING, COAST OVER THE ROAD AND BEGIN ACCELERATING WHEN YOU ARE 5 METERS PAST THE ROAD – THERE WILL BE CONES IN PLACE TO DESIGNATE COASTING ZONE, TAKE NOTE ON THE PARADE LAP.

There will be NO passing at the road crossings.

FOLLOW THE RULES OR YOU WILL BE BLACK FLAGGED AND DISQUALIFIED. THERE WILL BE A MARTIAL/FLAG PERSON AT THE CROSSING.

Map to come.

 

Please line up at the track entrance area 20 minutes before your scheduled start time – refer to map. Be prepared to parade to start area 10 minutes before your race. Racers will be sent out 1 at a time at equal intervals.

*If you are not ready to parade to start area, you will be moved to the back of the start grid.

*Qualifying will be done on a first come first serve basis. Entry fee and waiver forms must be in prior to qualifying. Once waivers are confirmed you may proceed to do your qualifying lap/laps.

*Parade laps will be a quick drive around the course as a group so drivers can familiarize themselves with the route. It is in your best interest to participate in the parade lap as this years course is different and longer than last season.

START ORDER/QUALIFYING

The start order will be determined based on your qualifying time.

We will have an open qualifying for this race which will begin right after the parade laps. Please refer to the map for changes to the qualifying course. Open qualifying means after you complete a qualifying lap, you can line up to run another qualifying lap as long as qualifying is open. We will bypass the rock garden in qualifying but it will be mandatory during the race.

Your best time will be used to determine the start order. If you do not run a qualifying lap, you will start at the back of your field. Qualifying will be done on a first come, first serve basis.

Final start orders will be posted by the track entrance.

*You must hand in payments and waivers before qualifying!
*Tech must be completed before qualifying!

RACE COST/WAIVERS

$200 per vehicle class entry

Race participants (drivers/co-drivers), must be at least 16 years old. Participants under the age of 18 must fill out (along with their parent/guardian) the part of the waiver (emailed upon registration) highlighted in green. Participants over 18 must fill out the part of waiver (emailed upon registration) highlighted in yellow. Failure by all participants to fill out the waiver will result in the participant NOT racing.

Please hand in exact race fees (change will NOT be available) in a sealed envelope with your names/race team/vehicle number on the envelope. Along side the envelope, please hand in loose waivers so we can confirm all participants. Entry fee and waiver forms will be collected at registration booth prior to qualifying – registration booth is located near track entrance. Once Waivers are confirmed, you will proceed to track entrance to do your qualifying lap.

If you do NOT hand in waivers or money prior to qualifying, you will be asked to leave the line up and come back with waivers and payment.

TECH INSPECTION

Please find Bill McGibbon, Marek Smid, JP Morin or Joel Demeyre on the evening of Friday October 15th from 6pm to 8pm ONLY in the Greasy Clown Motorsports pit. Please message the Greasy Clown Motorsports team through Facebook if you need to tech on Saturday morning before your race – they will only be available between 8am and 9am. You must pass tech in order to qualify.

*If you received a Conditional Pass (yellow tag), you will need to fix the outstanding tech issue and receive a green tag in order to participate in the next race.

If your conditional pass was due to a missing number plate/shark fin, you WILL be able to race without it but be aware, it is in your best interest in having a shark fin as this is the easiest number plate for lap counters to identify your vehicle – lack of number plate may result in miscount of laps.

PITS

Only tools/fuel/tires/etc. are allowed to be left at your pit. You MUST have your pit set up by 9:00am race day.

More pit information to come.

If you are caught using outside help you will be assessed a 2 lap penalty. Maximum speed while in pit area is 5KM/H

There will be a flagman at the end of pit lane to safely guide you back on course. You must wait for him to give you the green flag before proceeding on course. Failure to follow flagman’s signal will result in 1 lap penalty.

*Refer to map for pit area.

RECOVERY CREW/COURSE OFFICIALS
Recovery crew will be stationed throughout the course. Should you roll over, get stuck, break down, etc. they are there to help you (ie: roll you back on your wheels, pull you out, assist you with tools, change a tire, etc.). Recovery is NOT there to do your work or co-driver duties, they are there to assist if they can in a safe manner.

You are allowed to continue racing after they assist you. There is no penalty for accepting their help.

FLAGS

Green – go
Yellow – CAUTION. Slow down. No passing!
Red – stop until further instructed
Black – exit course for safety violation or other
White – final lap
Checkers – race is over. Safely exit the course and return to your campsite
Flag stations may be set up around the course with checkered and white flag only at the start/finish area.

PENALTIES
If you are assessed a penalty prior to or during the race (outside help, etc.), your penalty laps will be added to your race length meaning, if you are running Stock or Modified and you are assessed a 1 lap penalty, you will now have to complete 7 laps instead of 6 like the rest of the field.

If upon review, it is determined you received an infraction after the race has completed and you receive a 1 lap penalty, the penalty will be taken off your total completed lap meaning if you are running Stock or Modified and you completed 6 laps prior to curfew, your completed laps will be scored as 5.

SPORTMANSHIP

Absolutely no nerfing or bumping other vehicles.

If you are caught by a faster car please pull over when safe to do so and allow them to pass.

If you break down do your best to get off course so others may get around you.

Do not intentionally block the course. Pull to the side to allow others to pass.

MOST IMPORTANTLY – we are racing to have fun! See rule #155!

DRIVERS MEETING

There is no drivers meeting. All race information will be sent to drivers via email and found on this page.

Upon reviewing race details, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us here so we can address your questions.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

CAMPING

Camping is available for $20 per racer for the weekend – to be collected upon arrival. There will be no service sites available this year. If you think you require camping, please indicate when filling out the registration form.

If you are arriving Friday, please arrive after 4:00pm and no later then 11:00pm. Upon arrival, please contact Eugene Horvath to let you in and guide you to the camping area.

If needed, there is an RV pump out outside the gates on the south side of the utility building – you may pump out and drive around the building to exit. Please refer to map for location.

CAR WASH INFO
DO NOT use the wash bays at the Free Flow Auto Spa! The traps/drainage become badly clogged with the clay/mud that comes off the race trucks.

FreeFlow will do their best to supply us with a water truck and fire hose that can be used to wash your race trucks down before you leave. This will be done in one central spot to not contaminate the parking area/pits with loose debris.
