    Oh goody! :)

    First, congrats to all the racers that came out and supported the club. Special thanks to all the volunteers who put the hours in to allow the racers to actually be on track.

    I think we need to formalize Pit Lane access and how it is navigated.

    15.14
    The maximum speed allowed in pit lane is 40 kph. Those competitors who exceed a safe speed for the condition of the pit lane are subject to penalty. This regulation is not subject to protest or appeal.
    Speed limit may be monitored by radar.
    Suggested separation between bikes is 10 bike lengths when entering the track to allow Timing and Scoring to monitor passing vehicles for transponder operation.

    No weaving or wheelies are allowed in the acceleration lane (pit lane).
    All crew members working in the pit area must be clean and fully clothed at all times during any track session. Shirts, long pants and closed-toe footwear are mandatory.
    Crew members shall not sit on the pit wall during any track session.
    A maximum of two (2) people per vehicle shall be permitted access to a designated location for the purpose of signalling during any track session. Signallers may not be at the signalling area until after the start of the session.
    Penalties range from a warning, loss of position, loss of lap(s), loss of fastest lap, disqualification, exclusion from the event, monetary fine not to exceed $1000.

    this one comes from our referee Joseph..
    just a clarification for the definition of a crash

    Chapter 5 (first line, Definition)
    You will be deemed to have crashed if:
    a) both wheels are not on the ground but some other parts are.
    b) you need to get off or from under the fallen bike and pick it up to re-mount.
    c) the bike is upright and rolling but you are not on it.
    d) the handle bar touches the ground.

    Or, like I suggested several years ago: If you have to stand on one side of your motorcycle to pick it up, you've crashed.

    I don't know of anyone strong enough to straddle a motorcycle and pick it up off the ground.
