Racing Rules Contact As this is a Touring Car series and damage will be turned off to make the series more enjoyable, we will allow minor rubbing and some banging and as long as no one is disadvantaged we will let it go. If someone is forced off the track / into a wall / spun out or caused to lose more than 1 position due to contact then it will be investigated and penalties will be applied as necessary. Pit Entries/Exits When entering and exiting the pit lane, drivers must observe any white line or grassed areas which separate the Entry/Exit of Pit Lane and the race track. 10 Second Penalty will be applied for drivers crossing any white lines or grassed areas when leaving or rejoining the circuit. Corner Cutting Driver must respect the track limits at all times during qualifying and racing. Drivers cutting corners and gaining any positions or a significant amount of time without readdressing during racing while be penalized with either a time penalty or demotion of positions. During Qualifying it is expected that drivers are capable of self policing their corner cutting and if they do gain an advantage, they back off during that lap. Generally, the track limits will be a maximum of 2 wheels on the grass or on the inside of the track. Jump Starts Drivers must be aware that a grid start with false start check will be used at the beginning of race and that if the brakes are not kept on you will receive a 5 second penalty as soon as the race begins.
