International Race Kampenhout GRAND PRIX 2015 – briefing
After your practice run, please stay at least 5 minutes on the track for marshaling your friends… and other competitors J.
Race duration is 5 minutes. Every driver will race 4 qualifying rounds and 3 finals.
Line up beside the rostrum a few minutes before your heat (pass behind the rostrum!). Wait for the “race over” call of the previous heat. First all the drivers come down the stairs before drivers of the following heat go up.
After your heat do not forget to shut off your transmitter and bring it to technical inspection together with your car. Proceed directly to your marshaling position.
Marshals stay on their position until the replacement arrives!
After marshaling you can collect car + transmitter.
Important: make sure your transmitter is recognizably labeled to avoid mistakes when you pick up your transmitter after marshaling.
– round by round, two best results to count
– starting order first round by lottery, then according to results of previous round
– in the first round you can do two laps as warm up to check your transponder by driving over the loop
– the straight is a go slow area during warm up lap and after “race over” call
– starting grid for all finals chosen by pole sitter A final
During qualifying, let the faster drivers go by. No shouting on the rostrum (or elsewhere), be a gentleman at all times.
Marshals have to wear the fluo vests and solid footwear. Marshals are allowed to do a quick fix if needed (refit loose ball cup) whilst still keeping an eye on the other cars on the track.
Don’t drive in the opposite direction.
No drivers or mechanics on track before the “race over” call.
If your car breaks down during a heat, stay on the rostrum until “race over”, bring your car and transmitter to technical inspection and go to your marshaling position before repairing your car.
Lower finals may be run with 11 drivers to avoid an extra final with only a few drivers.
Warning or stop and go 5 seconds in pits at the end of the straight.
Failing to marshal = loss of best result of the day.
Car numbers are to be collected at timekeeping (near rostrum).
Number stickers: one flat on the front windscreen.
Marshaling order on timetable.
Parking and pitting:
Absolutely no race related parking near the playground/kitchen area.
The parking area near the track will be used as pits, so park your car further down in the park to both sides of the outer road. Do remember to keep this outer road free for safety regulations.
On Saturday and Sunday afternoon the entry/exit of the Park might be blocked due to ongoing activities.
Please keep the premises clean, bin bags are available at timekeeping and catering. A skip is placed near the school building.
Enjoy your race!
