Starting Gate Pick: Rider’s first moto will be assigned in the order of sign-up, and the second moto will be based on first moto finish position.
Official Flags: All flag signals must be obeyed immediately by all riders. Any rider who disregards any flag signal may be penalized or suspended; this is to be decided by Burning Rock race officials.
Green Waved: Start of race
Yellow: NO JUMPING UNDER CAUTION Danger on track, use caution, reduce speed, hold position. Yellow flags mean there is a problem on the track and you should be in control of your machine and look for the problem so you can avoid it. Watch the flaggers to see if they are directing you to one side of the track. Passing is not allowed under the yellow Flag
White: One lap to go to finish
Black: Rider stop and see race official
Red: Stop of race
Blue: Move over, rider trying to pass
Black and White Checkered: Finish, end of race (if there is a flagging issue, example, if rider receives two (2) white flag laps, always keep racing until rider sees the checkered flag, unless a red flag comes out)
Red Cross: If a Red Cross flag is out then there is a problem on the track that is causing a hazard or a rider is receiving assistance. Riders must slow to 5 mph and no passing is allowed through the area where the flag is being displayed. If you exceed 5 mph, pass another rider, or endanger or hit a track worker, EMT, or a downed rider you will be penalized. Penalties vary from a stop and go or being docked positions to disqualification for more serious violations. This rule is to protect you and your fellow riders and will be strictly enforced. Parents of young riders please explain this very carefully to them so they will know what the different flags mean.
CUTTING THE TRACK: If a rider leaves the marked, designated track for any reason they must go back and enter at the point they exited the track, or a point before or they can be penalized a minimum of one position. The worse the infraction the more positions they can be penalized.
UNSPORTSMAN LIKE BEHAVIOR: This includes dirty riding, fighting, use of profanity, obscene gestures etc. Violators can be penalized, including disqualification and being suspended from racing our series. If another rider tries to start a fight do whatever you have to do to get away and notify the Referee immediately. Riders are responsible for the actions of their pit crew and family.
IF YOU do fall down: If you go down on your bike or atv and are not hurt your number one concern is to get off the racetrack. If your bike is in the middle of the track move it before trying to restart it so you will not get hit by another rider or block the race track. Do not wait on the track crew to move your bike or start it for you. Their number one priority is to let the other riders know there is a problem and to keep you from getting hit.
Refund Policy: No cash refund policy for race registration or gate fees once practice has begun. If you are unable to begin practice see registration for a race credit.
Scoring: If rider has a scoring issue, he/she has 15 minutes once the results have been posted to resolve the scoring issue. After 15 minutes, the results will be final at the discretion of Burning Rock race officials.
Restarting Race: There will be no restarts unless it is the opinion of the Burning Rock Race Officials or First Aid Attendants that it will endanger the participants involved or if there is a malfunction in the start gate or some interference as determined by the Burning Rock race officials. If for any reason the race must be stopped, it will be considered completed if over 50 percent of the race has been run.
Practice: Rider must be signed up for the event before going out on the course for practice or rider will be subject to disqualification and/or suspension. All riders must enter the track at the starting-line area and ride in his/her correct practice or rider will be subject to being penalized.
Alcohol Or Drugs: Any racer found consuming alcohol or any drug will not be allowed to compete. Any spectator found consuming excessive amounts of alcohol will be asked to leave the event. If you see a competitor violating this rule please bring it to the staff’s attention so the problem can be addressed before it results in an accident.
Moving Riders Up Or Down In Class: The Burning Rock Race officials have the right to require an individual rider to participate in a class that, in Burning Rock opinion, is equal to the rider’s ability. A rider may be moved up or down in any class by the Burning Rock race officials determined by the rider’s ability and lap times
