Membership of an MNZ affiliated club is compulsory. No proof - no ride.
International competitors wishing to compete in an NZCMRR event must notify the race secretary of their intent to race at least one month before the meeting date so a MNZ permit which allows for international competitors can be issued for the event. International competitors must obtain a Start Permission and FIM International Licence (if applicable) from their motorcycle Federation and have this sent to MNZ prior to the event being held. If an overseas competitor does not have a licence with their motorcycle Federation please contact the race secretary. International competitors must have Insurance which meets the minimum FIM Standards.
In the event of duplicate race numbers then the NZCMRR competitor has the exclusive right of use of that number.
Sign-on and scrutineering is from 7:30am until 9.00am cut-off. Riders briefing at 9:00 am and practice starts at 9.30am.
REGULARITY / TRACK PARADE – Maximum field of 40 bikes on the grid.
The parade is to allow non-racing members, or members with a parade bike the opportunity of 1 practice and 4 sessions on the race track. Entrants can ride either a racing machine which could be loaned for the event by a race entrant, or a suitable road machine. All machines in the parade must be presented for safety inspection, though they need not be fully race prepared. The NZCMRR Race Secretary reserves the right to accept or reject any rider or machine from this event as it sees fit. A minimum of one clearly legible number plate facing forward in the headlamp area is required. The number will be allocated with the parade acceptance form. Leather clothing, back protector, and an approved crash helmet must be worn for safety reasons. Remember that these events are not races and unsuitable riding will result in exclusion. There is no prize for being the fastest, only for having the most consistent lap times. These events will suit any club member who is not competing in race events, or a racer wishing to ride a machine that he has not entered into the races. The parades are run under the general MNZ rules and require a competition licence. Facility to obtain a one event licence is detailed on the payment summary form. Please note that this event is open to solo machines only.
ENTERING & EXITING, PIT LANE
Competitors shall only exit the pits to the circuit under the control of the Pit lane official and via the pit lane exit only. Competitors found to be riding the wrong way up or down Pit Lane may be fined or excluded from the meeting. Entry to the Pit Lane is on the RH side of the last corner before entering onto the front straight; Competitors must move to the far right of the circuit and reduce speed and signal their intentions to leave the track without impeding other competitors in the process. Once committed to entering Pit lane and a competitor has crossed to the inside of the entry blend lines that competitor MUST enter Pit Lane.
Circuit noise regulations as provided for under Rule 10-6d. All machines are to be effectively silenced so as not to exceed 95dB(A) "ride by" measured by the official meter mounted 30m from the track centre line. Machines registering consistently in excess of the limit will be brought to the attention of the officials for action to be taken as follows: Exceeding 95 but not exceeding 98dB(A): On the first offence during the meeting the rider will be warned that this has occurred and instructed to rectify the situation. For second and subsequent infringements the machine will be black flagged from the race or practice without further warning. Exceeding 98dB(A): The machine will be black flagged from the race or practice without warning. If circumstances don’t allow the machine to be black flagged, the competitor may be excluded from the results of that practice or race. During the course of the event the club will endeavour to post lists of machines and their noise readings to assist competitors efforts in complying with these limits.
Prior to the meeting, any entrant will be given a refund on his/her entry fee if for any reason attendance over the weekend is not possible. Notification is required in writing/email to the Race Secretary by 5:00pm the Wednesday prior to the event.
