There must be no smoking at any time during refueling and engines must be stopped.
We would ask all parents to supervise their children at all times. Failure to do so may end up with you being asked to leave the circuit along with your rider who will no doubt not be happy that they have had their hard earnt points removed because the actions of one of their party.

Some of the circuits will allow you to arrive the night before the meeting and camp over night or at least will know of a local facility that will allow you to camp.

Bike Regulation, Compliance and Checks
Random checks of Bikes for regulation compliance.
There will be random checks on bikes to confirm they comply with the relevant class regulations, as and when we feel appropriate. Also the top 4 finishing riders from finals will be pulled to one side and have their bikes checked on a fairly regular basis. These checks will be carried out in front of and witnessed by all 4 riders. Checks will be carried out which will highlight abnormalities in an engine without the need to strip it. If the bike passes these checks it will be deemed to meet the regulations. However if it fails on any one of these, we will ask the rider to strip their engine so it can be compared to a standard new engine we will have pre dismantled at the meeting. If the rider refuses to cooperate with this or their engine proves to not to be within regulations they will be excluded from the meeting and all their points to date will be removed from the championship table.
If however the engine is stripped and does prove to be within regulations they will be issued with a set of gaskets for their engine free of charge.
Accusations of cheating
If at anytime during the meeting a rider or their team feel another riders engine / bike does not fall within the regulations of the class they are riding in, they are asked to notify either Alan Lord or Martin Arnold. They will then be asked to pay a scrutineering deposit of £50. At the end of the accused riders Final they will be separated from the other riders and informed of the accusation made against them and asked if they agree to strip their engine so that it can be checked. If they refuse to do this or after checking, their engine is proven to not be within regulations they will be excluded from that meeting and their points to date will be removed from the championship table. The £50 deposit will then be returned to the person making the complaint.
However if after stripping the engine it is found to be within regulations the £50 will be paid to the rider to cover the cost of rebuilding.
If an engine is stripped it will be checked for:
Cam lift & duration
Valve cutting / seating
We feel this is the easiest and cheapest way of ensuring as far as possible (within a budget sport) that bikes are as close performance wise as possible.
When you sign the self scrutineering card you will see that you are also agreeing to abide by the above conditions. If you do not wish or do not agree to abide by these conditions we would ask you not to take part in the championship as doing so would not be fair to the other riders.
