Rules around the Racetrack

A detailed look at the rules applicable, in the order met when in a race.

Please join us for a SSC start of the season get together online. Chris will take us through the rules we are likely to encounter from start to finish of a typical race at Shoreham. It deals with the rules that apply as a competitor goes out to race and proceeds around the course. Chris will be available to ask questions and help clarify any rules queries you may have.
