2015 ROCK ISLAND GRAND PRIX SUPPLEMENTAL RULES

The Rock Island Grand Prix encourages participation by drivers from all sanctioning bodies including CIK, WKA, IKF, SKUSA, IRA, USPKS, NKA and TAG U.S.A. Where there is a conflict in rules, the more lenient rule will be enforced except where a specific rule has been specified.

1. The race steering committee has the power to change, modify or regroup the race program and reduce the number of laps in a race. Any modifications not covered by the rules will be considered illegal.

2. Races will run rain or shine. If the track is declared ?WET? competitors may choose which tires they desire to qualify or race with. Teams will initially be given time to change tires and setup. From that point on, race officials will make ?recommendations? with regards to track conditions, but the decision whether to change or not, and when to change, will be up to the individual race teams. Subsequent breaks to change between wet and dry setups will not be given. If you have questions about the race format, please see Race Director Terry Riggins and his staff.

3. The organizing committee has elected to not put caps on classes at this year's Rock Island Grand Prix. Practice, Heat races and Last Chance Qualifiers will be adjusted as needed based on entries. If there are more than 30 entries in a class, the top 25 after Heat Races will advance to the Final and the remaining entries will compete in a Last Chance Qualifier (PreFinal) for the final five spots in the Final. After August 1, refunds for drivers who withdraw will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and generally refunds will NOT be given. Classes will only be canceled with agreement of all registered drivers.

4. All racers are asked to register by Friday, August 14, 2015. There will be a $25 per entry penalty (i.e. $150 instead of $125) for registrations postmarked after August 14. Racers who enter AFTER 5 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 4, will pay a $100 late fee (i.e. $225 instead of $125).

5. Professionalism: Due to the stature of the event and the number of spectators and media it attracts, the Rock Island Grand Prix expects all race teams to conduct themselves in the most professional manner possible. Uniforms should be clean - they reflect on your team and your sponsors. Consumption of alcohol, foul language, and fighting in the paddock/pit area, scales or on the track will not be tolerated. Smoking in the pit/paddock area is strongly discouraged and forbidden within 50 feet of the fuel truck. Race teams may face penalties up to and including disqualification of the team's driver(s) if these rules are violated. Also please remember the spectators. Engage them in conversation; welcome them into your tent; let the kids see your kart. They may be a future racer or sponsor. Downtown businesses are kind enough to let us use their parking lots for this event. Please treat their property with respect and leave it in the condition it was found. Do not drive on the grass and do not move concrete parking stops. Your entry means you agree to assume responsibility, and pay for any damage left behind . PLEASE NOTE: Any competitors caught cutting pit fence to leave early will be banned from future events.

6. Inspection: Pre-race tech inspection/scrutineering will take place from 2-5 p.m. Friday at the off-site staging area and from 6-8:30 p.m. Friday under the tent on the pre-grid. Racers should bring their kart, all safety apparel, and be prepared to complete the Technical Inspection Passport (provided at pre-race inspection). All drivers who arrive and register Friday prior to 8 p.m. MUST complete pre-tech on Friday evening. Saturday pre-tech will be done only for karts receiving a Late Arrival Pass from Registration. All karts and helmets must pass inspection prior to running. All karts involved in on-track accidents must be reinspected by tech officials/scrutineers. All drivers involved in accidents must be released by medical staff before returning to race.

7. Pre-grid Inspection: On pre-grid, karts may be checked for width, wheel size, fuel, oil & air box sniffed, clutch RPM, tire compliance, 4 visible numbers and final visual safety check. Tires will be marked prior to Heat Races. Use of tire warmers at any time will NOT be allowed.

8. Bodywork: Nose Cones are MANDATORY except in Vintage classes. You can run whatever the various sanctioning bodies allow for sprint racing but full nose cones are allowed in 4-cycle classes only. Side pods MAY extend beyond the wheels.

9. Qualifying: There will be no timed qualifying this year. Drivers will participate in a blind draw at Registration for Heat Race starting positions. Finishing Points and Passing Points will be awarded during Heat Races and combined will determine grid positions for the Sunday Final. Passing points will be determined by the difference between starting and finishing position. Ties in points will first be broken by grid position (lowest) and then by entry date. If a class has more than 30 entries, the top 25 racers will automatically qualify for the Final with the remainder of the class running a last chance qualifier race to qualify for the final 5 starting positions. No purse is paid for qualifying races.

10. Scales: All competitors must weigh-in after the race. No team members are allowed near the kart until after weigh-in. No leaving the scale area or re-weighing. Failure to weigh will result in DQ.

11. Numbers: Numbers will be assigned by race officials. Numbers must be visible on all four sides of the kart. Numbers should be at least 5 inches tall with no shadowing, outlining, pin-striping, etc. allowed. Numbers must have a background of contrasting color to numbers on all 4 sides . On-board cameras MUST NOT block number panels. Rear number panels must be fastened so that they do not ?sail? when the kart is in motion. On 4-cycle karts with full bodywork, the front numbers must be flat and SHOULD NOT wrap over the top of the wheel well. Numbers will be a pre-tech item. Race officials may require you to change numbers to avoid duplication. Karts not running assigned numbers can be disqualified.

12. LTO Chassis: Offset, or left-turn-only chassis, are allowed but tech officials can require drivers to make whatever adjustments they deem necessary to the chassis setup to assure safe handling of the kart.

13. Weights: Weights can be either double-nutted or single-nutted and wired or pinned as per IKF and WKA rules. If weights are attached to bumpers then bumpers must also be double-nutted and/or single-nutted and pinned. Weights may be bolted to the inside of bumpers at the discretion of the tech inspector. Any weights or clamping devices outside the dimensions of the kart frame are subject to legal approval of the tech official/scrutineer.

14. Payout: All classes will race for the same payout in 2015 with the exception of 80cc Shifters and Vintage which have a lower entry fee and trophy only. Amount to be paid will be determined by the racers and the number of entries they provide. Classes with 30 or more entries will pay $500 for first, $300 for second, $200 for third, $150 for fourth and $100 for fifth. Classes with 20-29 entries will pay $300 for first, $200 for second, $150 for third and $100 for fourth. Classes with 10-19 entries will pay $250 for first, $150 for second and $100 for third.

If you do not, you will be charged for it.

18. Protests: Protests must be filed IN WRITING WITH THE RACE DIRECTOR within 30 minutes of the posting of race results. Official Results will be posted on the windows of The Argus Building. A $50 Cash Protest Fee must also be paid at the time a protest is filed. If the ruling is in favor of the driver filing the protest, that driver will get the Protest Fee back. In the case of a protest over another driver's engine, there will be a $100 cash protest fee. The protester will receive the Protest Fee back if the engine is found illegal.

GENERAL REGULATIONS

This year the Rock Island Grand Prix will be followingTAG USA Local Option Rules which can be found at tagracing.net or through the link on the Competitors page of the Rock Island Grand Prix website. Rules as of August 1, 2015 will apply. The exception is 80cc shifters which will follow SIRA rules. If there is a conflict with the Supplemental Rules, the Supplemental Rule will be applied.

Ages: In general, ages for senior classes are age 15 and over. Age is determined by the driver?s age on RACE WEEKEND.

Tech: In all classes, after Finals, top 5 finishers will be impounded. Teams should be prepared for teardown and have a crew member ready with tools to assist.

Engine Changes: If a competitor changes an engine after Heat Races, they will start at the back of the grid in the feature.

Starting procedure: Gearbox classes will use double file grid, standing start with one lap warm up. Vintage and TAG classes will have one warm up lap, double file grid and then a rolling start. 4-cycle classes, and Yamaha Can classes, will have no warm up lap and will grid on front straight along both north and south curbs. Standing start.

Drafting: Drafting is permitted during qualifying and competition. Contact between competitors is not permitted. ?Bump? drafting is allowed EXCEPT in shifter, TAG and Vintage classes.

FLAGS

Yellow Flag: Due to the nature of the track at Rock Island, the yellow flag is used in two different ways. A WAVING yellow means there is imminent danger in that corner. Racers should acknowledge, slow and hold their position. A HELD yellow means that potential danger lies in the NEXT corner. Drivers should continue racing until they see a waving yellow.

Red Flag: A race can be ruled official after a red flag if more than half of the laps have been completed. If two red flags occur in the same race, that race can be ruled official regardless of the number of laps completed.

Blue Flag: The blue flag will be shown to racers when they are about to be lapped by faster traffic. It may be shown at the flag stand or by one of the assistant race directors. When a racer receives the blue flag, he/she MUST acknowledge it with a hand signal, hold their racing line, and allow faster traffic to pass. Failure to do so will result in a penalty ranging from loss of position up to disqualification, at the discretion of the race director. If a driver flagrantly disregards the blue flag and fails to hold his/her line, or in the judgment of the race director becomes a problem on the track, they will be immediately black flagged. The faster, overtaking kart should make every effort to choose a racing line that will avoid lapped traffic. Failure to avoid a slower kart, which has acknowledged the blue flag and is holding its racing line, could result in a penalty assessed against the overtaking kart, up to and including disqualification at the discretion of the race director.
