Restarts

 

J2.15 TIME TRIAL RESTART: the field will grid up in a single row in order of the last completed lap prior to the Red Flag and will face the Starter, the Clerk of the Course or the Race Director to take the start for the remainder of the time trial. Karts not recorded on the last completed lap may not restart. A kart failing to take the restart but deemed to have posted a time during the previous part of the time trial will be recorded in the results. Starter motors are the only tools permitted onto the track environs unless otherwise specified.

 

J2.16 REGRID: A Regrid occurs after the Green with Yellow Chevron Flag is shown. Karts will reform the original rolling grid and face the starter. Only karts which were recorded as being starters may join the grid. This procedure will only be used prior to the leader completing the second racing lap.

 

J2.17 RERUN: A rerun will be ordered if a race stoppage occurs prior to the leader completing the second racing lap. The race will be re run in the original grid positions after the karts have returned to the Out Grid via the In Grid. All entered competitors are permitted to start in the rerun. The scheduling of when the rerun takes place will be determined by the Clerk of the Course/Race Director.

 

If a red flag race stoppage occurs prior to the leader completing the second racing lap, all karts MUST be returned to the In Grid. The race is then rescheduled and the race rerun with karts leaving the Out Grid at a time determined by the Clerk of the Course/Race Director.

 

J2.18 DECLARED COMPLETE: If the lead kart has completed at least 75% of the race distance at the completion of the lap prior to the Red Flag the race may be declared complete by the Clerk of Course/Race Director.

 

For shorter races (less than 25 laps) the normal decision would be to declare the race complete. However if there are considerable laps still to complete (in a long final or an enduro) and time permits, it may be better to complete the race. If there is any suspicion that the stoppage was deliberate beyond the 75% point in order to secure a result, then the remainder of the race should be run.

 

J2.19 RESTART: Where a stopped race is neither rerun nor declared complete the field will grid up in a single row in order of the last completed lap prior to the Red Flag and will face the Starter, the Clerk of the Course or the Race Director in close formation and straddle the centre two lines or be in the middle lane to take the start for the remainder of the race (Rule J2.10 and J2.11). Karts not recorded on the last completed lap may not restart. A kart failing to take the restart but deemed to have started the previous start will be recorded in the results. Starter motors are the only tools permitted onto the track environs unless otherwise specified.

 

 

Info

IMPORTANT NOTE : It is extremely important to ensure that after First Aid personnel have responded to an incident, that they are available to respond to another incident when competition resumes. Often after an incident, a competitor may still be being attended to either in a first aid room or the ambulance by the First Aid personnel. In these situations it is essential that competition only resumes/continues with the clear understanding and assurance that the First Aid personnel are available.
