Finishing

 

J2.20 FINISH LINE: The finish line is a line across the track identifying the point where laps and finishing positions will be recorded.

 

J2.21 FINISH: Should the end of the race signal inadvertently or otherwise be displayed before the leading kart completes the scheduled number of laps, or before the prescribed race time has been completed, the race will nevertheless be deemed to end at the moment the signal is given. Should the end of the race signal be inadvertently delayed, the race will nevertheless be deemed to finish at the correct moment and the Provisional Result will be established accordingly. This Rule takes precedence over race distance/length Rules.

 

J2.22 FINISHER: Is any competitor who is deemed to have started the race (Rule J2.11). The Provisional Result will be based on the order competitors cross the Finish Line and receive the Chequered Flag. Karts must cross the Finish Line and receive the Chequered Flag under their own designed motive power or coast over the Finish Line without manual assistance. Karts which receive the Chequered Flag will be classified ahead of karts which do not receive the Chequered Flag regardless of the number of laps completed by the stationary karts. The Provisional Result will be determined by Rule J3.1. Competitors stopping or withdrawing, will be credited the number of laps completed in the order of crossing the Finish Line. Karts not completing the first lap will be classified as DNF and placed in the order they crossed the Start Line. Karts not completing the first lap will be classified (behind those that did) in the order they crossed the Start Line.

 

J2.23 ENDURO FINISH: When the time is up the Chequered Flag will be given to the leading kart next time it passes the finish line. All finishers on the same lap will be provisionally placed according to their order crossing the finish line. Finishers completing less laps will be provisionally placed according to the number of laps completed.

Should, for any reason, the Chequered Flag be delayed, the race will be deemed to be finished when the prescribed time has elapsed.

 

Provisional Result: The kart provisionally classified in first position is the one which has covered the greatest distance when the Chequered Flag is displayed. The position of the karts on the starting grid is not taken into account.

Karts will be provisionally ordered according to the number of complete laps covered during the duration of the race. For the competitors who have covered the same number of laps, the time when the karts cross the finish line will determine the Provisional Result.
