Rookie Orientation

All first time Entrants are considered Rookies until they have succesfully completed their Rookie Run down track 2.

They are identified by the use of a Rookie sticker affixed to their helmet, which remains for the remainder of the event.

No other form of motor-sport will prepare you for the unique surface, procedures, rules and conditions.

There is a special booklet prepared for Rookies and all Rookies are required to read it. Download here [PDF]

ALL NEW ENTRANTS MUST ATTEND THE ROOKIE ORIENTATION on the Sunday afternoon. If you cannot attend this meeting for what ever reason it is up to the entrant to seek out the Race Director and arrange an alternative time. Rookies cannot run until they have attended the Rookies Orientation .

NOTE: Rookies must also undergo an Entrants Orientation which is also on the Sunday afternoon at the Pits prior to Speed Week.
Listen on the UHF radio Ch15 for announcement of the times.

 

Rookie Runs

First thing Monday morning all the rookies will assemble at the Track 2 Start Line with their vehicle, ready to make a pass. The only exception to this will be the Junior Rookies who will be watching and observing what goes on on the Monday and then making their Rookie Run on the Tuesday morning.

Rookies will be observed making their Rookie Run. The Race Director and other officials will be watching to ensure firstly that the Rookie follows the instructions they have been given and secondly that they demonstrate control of their vehicle.

Rookies may be required to make runs at less than full throttle or less than full course length. Successful completion of the license requirements shall include, but not be limited to, starting line procedure, course navigation and shutdown procedure as determined by the Contest Board.
