WARNING FLAGS

 

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

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.

 

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.

 

Green flag

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.

 

White flag

Two whites = a Black flag

White flag will be given to indicate a warning due to a racing incident or misdemeanor 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.

 

Black flag

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. A black may result in exclusion from next race/s if deemed to have endangered themselves, a fellow competitor, course marshal or a spectator.

A driver that repeatedly or regularly receives a Black Flag may be suspended.

Any driver receiving a black flag is given -20 championship points for that race

 

 

Blue flag

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. 

 

 

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 (e.g. badly leaking fuel) may warrant a black flag.

 

Red and White flags crossed

This signals that the ambulance is required at an accident immediately

 

 

Chequered flag

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.

 

Last lap sign

This will be displayed at the start of the final lap of a race.
