    Chapter 13-Flags

    13.1(f)Yellow (waved)

    Relocated to 13.1(g):

    Note to novices: experienced racers, even though not passing,will probably not slow down much until the danger being flagged is actually seen. A racer slowing down abruptly in this situation runs the risk of being hit from behind by another closely following racer.


    13.1(g) Yellow (stationary)

    (added)

    -Marks the zone of “NO PASSING”

    -Note to novices: experienced racers, even though not passing,will probably not slow down much until the danger being flagged is actually seen. A racer slowing down abruptly in this situation runs the risk of being hit from behind by another closely following racer.

    The below section has been removed.
    Chapter 14 Race Points

    Any rider that starts a race (specifically, any rider that makes the starting grid and takes the race start flag) will be assigned a finishing position, and be awarded any associated points for that position regardless of whether they complete the full race or not. This is to differentiate, via points eligibility, between riders who do not finish (DNF) a race and those who do not start.

    If a rider does not start, they are not assigned a finishing position, and they cannot earn points.

    If a rider starts a race, but DNF’s, they will be assigned a finishing position and awarded any associated points for that assigned position according to the points structure.

    Finishing position for DNF’s will be assigned as follows:

    - The first DNF in a race will be shown as the last place finisher for that race.

    - The second DNF of the race will be assigned second last place, and so forth.

    - If two riders DNF at the same time, either individually, or from a collision or other race incident forcing both riders out at the same time, their final result positions will be determined based on their relative track position on the last completed lap.
