The blue flag will signal all riders to shut down their engines.

30 seconds later the Referee will extend his arm to signal “10 Seconds” before the start of the race.  At the “10 Seconds” signal, all crew members must step behind the riders.

Between 8 and 10 seconds, the green flag will be thrown, signaling the start of the race.

Riders starting their machines prior to the green flag signal or taking off with the wrong row will be penalized.

Riders missing the start of their class must enter the race course at the Start Line and complete the start chute.

The machine a rider leaves the Start Line with is the official machine of the rider for that event, and may not be switched during the event.

The Rev Limiter course may include trails, footpaths, roads, hills, motocross tracks, or any type of terrain which can be negotiated by a motorcycle or ATV.

The course will be open to inspection Friday after 12pm. Participants are permitted to walk  the course only.

Marking, cutting, tampering with or otherwise changing the course in any manner is strictly prohibited. Course modifications may only be made by an official.

No one, except officials and riders officially entered in the race program, may ride on the race course at any time during the event.

 

E. SCORING:

LiveLaps transponder scoring is the official scoring procedure for Rev Limiter. All riders will be required to have a fully-functioning transponder in order to compete. Transponders will be available for  purchase at Rider Registration.

There will be three checkpoints throughout the race course: one at the Finish Line and two Out-post checkpoints.  Riders must come to a complete stop at the Finish Line checkpoint, but not at the Out-post checkpoints.

Checkpoints will be “No Passing” zones. The section from the Finish Line to the Finish Line checkpoint is a “No Passing” zone.  In addition, checkpoints will be marked with double arrows, indicating riders must stay within the confines of the course markers.

Riders may not be serviced or pitted in the area between the Finish Line and the Finish Line checkpoint or in the area immediately after the Finish Line checkpoint.

Riders must remain on the marked course. The marked course is within 25 feet of race arrows.  However, riders must stay within the confines of the following markers:  double arrows posted on both sides of the trail, ribbons, signs, stakes, hay bales, barrels, motocross track, grass track, etc..

Riders encountering a traffic jam or bottleneck may go more than 25 feet off the course to get around the bottleneck only. However, the rider must re-enter the course as soon as possible, and upon approaching this section the next lap, must ride the original arrowed section if the track is clear. If the original marking devices are knocked down, the rider must stay on the original marked course regardless. A “bottleneck” is a section of the track that becomes impassable for any reason, with the exception of checkpoints.
