CLUBMANS REGISTER 2011
RACING MEMBERS DRIVING AND CONDUCT STANDARDS
CODE OF CONDUCT
In the event of a Registered Competitor’s driving or conduct standards falling below the standards considered by the Driving Standards Officer to be appropriate to the Championship the Championship Representative shall be entitled in his / her discretion to:
Require the Organiser through the Championship Co-ordinator to forthwith suspend the Championship Registration of the relevant competitor in order that the relevant competitor’s conduct be referred by the Championship Co-ordinator to the Championship Stewards for consideration of termination of Championship Registration and / or
In the case of driving standards, issue a ‘yellow card’ warning to the relevant competitor and in conjunction with the Organiser place the relevant competitor under observation of the officials of the meeting in any one or more races prior to referring the matter as above.
The Decision of the Driving Standards Officer (“DSO” is definitive subject to MSA judicial procedures which take precedence but which do not preclude action by the Clubmans Register.
1 You may only MOVE ONCE in front of a car, that is to say you can only move left or right in front of the car, not both. If you are approaching a bend and you do not wish the chasing car to out brake you on the inside going into the bend then you must take a tight line into the bend.
2 PUSHING OR SQUEEZING competitors off the track is strictly forbidden (i.e. reducing the available track width to less than a cars width).
3 OVERLY AGGRESSIVE DRIVING is not acceptable and includes such behaviour as going for gaps that are not there, using other competitors’ cars as physical brakes or would rather cause a serious accident than be prepared to lift off the throttle.
4 If two cars approach a bend together (i.e. side by side), then the car on the racing line cannot chop the corner (i.e. cannot take the racing line). SPACE MUST BE GIVEN TO THE CAR ON THE INSIDE. !! ONCE THE CAR ON THE INSIDE IS HALF WAY ALONG SIDE THEN SPACE MUST BE GIVEN TO THAT CAR. IF YOU ARE THE CAR TRYING TO OVERTAKE AND CANNOT GET HALF WAY ALONGSIDE THEN YOU MUST BACK OUT OF IT. You can go through bends side by side!
CLUBMANS RACES ARE NON CONTACT RACES.
All these measures when put together ensure that we have close, fair, spectacular and most of all enjoyable racing. Being part of a bunch of cars doing battle at each of our races is definitely something to look forward to and it means that driving standards are paramount to keep away the red flags! To help on the driving standards front Clubmans Cup has its own Driving Standards Officer (appointed by the Standing Committee) who oversees driving standards on the track and who can be invoked post-race as follows:
1 If a driver feels that he/she has made a mistake and offers an apology to the other party/ies it should only be proffered if genuine and then accepted as such and all parties should try to resolve the issue amicably there and then.
2 If, however, there is any element of friction then all involved parties must desist from any further direct communication. If felt necessary a formal complaint can be brought to the DSO but such complaint must be brought no sooner than 30 minutes after the end of the race and no more than 1 hour after the end of the race. Any investigation by the Clerk of the Course will take precedence.
3 The DSO has the authority on behalf of the Register to adjudicate on the matter including hearing witnesses and if necessary determining the date and location of any hearing if not at the Event and if the complaint is upheld shall refer the matter to the Championship Representative for action under Championship Regulation 4.2.
4 If a competitor is deemed by the DSO to have brought a complaint in bad faith then the DSO may refer the matter to the Championship Representative for action under Championship Regulation 4.2.
5 If a competitor lodges a formal Protest under MSA General Regulations then the DSO procedure cannot be invoked and the matter will be resolved under the Protest procedure BUT the Club reserves the right in all cases to take action in accordance with the Championship Regulations.
6 Competitors are reminded that they are responsible for the actions of their ‘team’ and any person connected with their Entry at the event. Accordingly competitors must not allow any such person to contribute in any way to direct or indirect confrontation with another competitor. An identical code of conduct is imposed on all competitors whether directly involved or not in an ‘incident’ and who are not a Complainant under the DSO procedure.
