Bikers' classics Track behaviour

Track

  • A MANDATORY riders briefing will take place before the first track session.
  • Riders will start in “waves”, following the instructions given by the pit marshals.
  • At the end of each session, the chequered flag will be waved at the pit lane entry. This flag announces the end of the session and the obligation to get back to the pit lane immediately, without deceleration lap.
  • In case of emergency, red lights and waved red flags will be shown all along the circuit. As soon as red lights are on, riders must slow down and get back immediately to the pit lane.
  • During a run, any participant may only stop in the pit lane, never on the track.  To return to the track, he must comply with the instructions of the pit marshals located at the exit of the pit lane.
  • A participant who breaks down or falls on the circuit must wait to be brought back to the paddock by a vehicle of the organiser.  It is strictly forbidden to drive on the circuit in an anti-clockwise direction under penalty of immediate exclusion.
  • The maximum speed allowed in the pit lane is 60 km/h and 10 km/h in the paddocks.  Radar controls will be carried out at various locations. Any participant who does not respect this limit will be fined 50 € for the first offence and will be excluded for the second offence.
  • The organizer reserves the right to exclude any participant who is dangerous due to his behaviour or the condition of his motorbike, without any compensation being paid to this participant.
  • Each participant must comply with the instructions and indications given to him by the organisers and the pit and track marshals. The latter may give instructions or information by means of flags and/or lights.
  • These days are training days and not a race, which excludes any aggression from the drivers. The organisation asks for respect between the participants in all overtaking manoeuvres.  The slowest driver will avoid an unpredictable change of trajectory, the fastest driver being in control of his overtaking with all the necessary safety.

Flags and Lights

YELLOW AND RED STRIPED FLAG AND/OR LIGHTS

Grip in this section of the track may be changed for a reason other than rain. This flag must be presented waved at the post of commissioners for flags.   

YELLOW FLAG AND/OR YELLOW FLASHING LIGHTS

A single yellow flag presented “waved” at the flag marshals’ station, this flag indicates that there is a danger ahead.
Two yellow flags and/or lights (double yellow) at the marshals’ station indicate that there is a significant danger and that the intervention of the marshals and/or the intervention vehicles is necessary without interrupting the session.
Participants must reduce their speed to 60 km/h in this zone and be prepared to stop.  It is forbidden to overtake until a green flag is shown, signalling that the track is clear from this position.

RED FLAG OR RED LIGHTS

End or interruption of runs due to an important event. Participants must immediately return to the paddock in slow motion.

In order to reduce the time of intervention, the safety vehicles will be allowed to turn against the direction of travel under flag and/or red lights.

WHITE FLAG

An intervention vehicle is on the track. Waved at the flag marshal’s post, this flag indicates that the participant will meet the vehicle in the present section of the track.
Overtaking between competitors is forbidden while the white flag is displayed.  Overtaking the intervention vehicle is permitted.
