Practice:

Be courteous to other racers and realize that others may need your frequency clip. The following are guidelines to be followed.

Before you start practice, you must have a frequency clip on your radio. If you cannot find a clip and believe yours is missing, notify the race director for verification.

You must drive from the designated drivers stand. If you enter the track area to Marshall your own car, you can drive the car to a safe location, park it, and then return to the designated drivers stand.

Be aware that other racers may be waiting on your frequency clip. Please limit your time on the track to a maximum of two tanks of fuel per session. You may run as long as you want to if you are the only one on your frequency. The Race Director will announce shared frequencies. If the Race Director calls for your frequency, you must respond as soon as possible.

When finished with your practice session, return your frequency clip immediately.

Spectator and Racer Safety:

Any witness to the following safety violations should be reported to the event, Race Director, or Track manager at once

Operating your RC car or truck on the ground outside of the specified and enclosed event track is not permitted. This includes parking lots on the track property, and inside the pit area. The only place an RC car can be driven is on the track. This does not include starting your car on a stand in your pit area.

No unauthorized turn Marshall’s are permitted on the track during an event. Actual racers are the only authorized Marshall’s allowed on the track. Any Volunteer Marshall’s must check in with the Race Director to receive approval to enter the track area.

All Turn Marshall’s are encouraged to wear hand and eye protection while marshalling a race. Hot exhaust, flying dirt, as well as moving parts are only part of the risk. While gloves and goggles are not mandatory at this time, it is strongly encouraged.

No open toe shoes are allowed while marshalling. All Marshall’s must wear a shirt at all times

All radios must remain off at all times other than during your designated race, or when you have a frequency clip attached to your radio. Radios are never to be turned on during a race unless you are a participant in the actual race.
