This information applies to both our car track days and drifting events. There are two parts to this. Firstly - it's best avoided and frowned upon! Very carefully re-join in the same direction of flow when traffic permits. You need to come into the pits immediately and report to the marshal. If you don't you will be black flagged. We need to check your car is ok before continuing, discuss your error and note your wristband number. If you spin again the car may be excluded from the remainder of the day at the discretion of the Chief instructor. A spinning car puts yourself and others (including the marshall's) at risk. If broken down, stay in your car and put your hand up out the window. The circuit marshal will assume you are going to re-join if you don’t put your hand up. Breakdowns are the most frequent cause of track time loss – don’t let it be you.
The second part is putting one or more wheels off the outer 'limits of the circuit'. I.e beyond the white lines. We have the following system in place which runs hand in hand with MSA regulations:
You are permitted to drive on the track asphalt up to and including the white line, and on the full extent of any kerbs (marked red/white). However you are not permitted to put a wheel beyond the white lines or kerbs. If anyone does not comply, the following actions will be taken by the circuit:
1st infringement Black/white driving standards flag warning
2nd infringement Black flag, report to control tower, final warning without penalty
3rd infringement Black flag, 20 minute track time exclusion
Further infringements Black flag, 20 minute track time exclusion
Decisions by circuit staff will be final and there will be no right of appeal against any penalty or right to review evidence. Furthermore if track limits regulations are abused, especially in a repeated and/or deliberate manner, then MSV reserves the right to exclude both the car and driver individually and MSV will make no refund or compensation.
Please keep it on the black stuff.
