We would like to remind all drivers to park in the correct location to stop congestion in the pit area. Please ensure you arrive together should you wish to be parked together. This applies to allow formulas. 

Drivers Briefing

TBones – Any deliberate hits between the wheels on either side of the car are outlawed. Anyone who in the opinion of the meeting steward is guilty of this will face a minimum of a three month ban with no element of the ban allowed to be suspended. Any driver who in the opinion of the steward does this illegal move at high speed will face a much larger ban. Hits over the wheels are still allowed. Dangerous and/or irresponsible driving as deemed by the Steward will incur a minimum of three months ORCi ban. For avoidance of doubt, length of the straight T-bones is considered dangerous and/or irresponsible driving.

For further guidance, the following examples may also be considered as dangerous and/or irresponsible driving at the discretion of the Steward:

  • Attacking a car which has been stationary for what the Steward determines to be a significant 

length of time.

  • Attacking a car which is clearly already crippled
