A full set of flags of approximate size (18”sq) must be available for each race day sufficient to cover all flag points on the track.
One set, plus a fire extinguisher and hi-vis vest, will be positioned at each flagging point.
The colour and purpose of the warning flags are as follows:
Yellow flag will be raised when there is an obstruction on the track. Competitors must show a noticeable reduction in speed. No overtaking permitted until after the obstruction has been passed. Disregarding a yellow flag will be regarded as dangerous driving and a black flag will be issued.
Where an obstruction occurs but remains in place for the remainder of the race (eg. a car breaks down and will not start or move) the yellow flag will remain up for three laps once all drivers are familiar with the obstruction.
Yellow and blue
Should the situation worsen the blue flag will be added to the yellow. Extreme caution must be taken and a further reduction in speed noticed. No overtaking permitted until after the obstruction has been passed.
(yellow and blue raised together is one step away from a red flag ).
Racing must not start while this is raised.
If raised during a race then racing must stop immediately. Drivers must stop racing in a safe manner with regard for other race cars and not as to cause a further accident on the track.
This is raised to a driver when a serious racing offence has been committed. When raised the offending competitor must retire from the race immediately.
Flagmen may stop a race should the offending driver ignore the black flag three times or more.
Drivers that receive black flags will be reported to the course marshal and will be noted in race report.
Failure to obey black flag may result in one race day suspension.
A black flag may be issued to a driver in the pits area if the offence occurred in the closing lap(s) of the race and his/her actions warrant it. This may result in exclusion from next race.
A driver that repeatedly or regularly receives a Black Flag may be suspended from racing for the remainder of an event should the club officials deem it warranted.
Any driver receiving a black flag is given 15 penalty points (-15 points in championship also) and loose all the points they have received that day.
Blue flag is to be raised when a faster car is approaching from behind, and not for drivers racing for position.
It may be given to a driver in a noticeably slower car where a faster car is approaching such as in an All In race.
Intentional obstruction of a driver will mean disqualification.
When a blue flag is raised a competitor must hold his/her line.
This will be given to indicate a warning due to a racing incident or misdemeanour and that a repetition will mean a black flag. A driver that receives a white flag will drop a position in the results for that race.
Any driver receiving a black flag is given 9 penalty points (-9 points in championship also)
Black and white flags crossed
This is to indicate a mechanical defect on a competing car. The competitor may continue racing at their own discretion. However a serious fault that could result in damage or injury to another competitor (eg badly leaking fuel) may warrant a black flag.
Red and White flags crossed
This signals that the ambulance is required at an accident immediately
This is used to signal that all is clear to start a race. A Green flag will also be waved by the Start / Finish Marshal to start a race.
This is used to signal the end of a race. On receiving the chequered flag a driver must complete one slowing down lap before retiring to the pits.
