Some General Track Day rules and protocols
|Green – Green means the track is open for speed.|
|Yellow – Incident flag. Someone may have spun on the track. Proceed with caution, no passing allowed until you see a green flag at the next marshalling station. A waving yellow means you are very close to the incident!|
|Blue – Waving blue means there is a faster car behind you. Stay on line and they will get around you. Under no circumstances should you pull off line to allow a faster car to pass.|
|Red Flag. Some complicated has occurred. Slow down as quicky and safley as possible and move to the inside of the track.|
|White flag can mean one of a few different things depending on the organization. At GrandSport this flag will indicate last lap. Some organization use the white flag that there is a safety vehicle on the track.|
|The meatball flag waved or point at you means that something is wrong with your car. Complete the lap and bring the your car in the pits for a consultation with the pit marshall.|
|Changing track conditions or debris on the track. Be aware that the track surface may change.|
|Black – Waved at you – come into the pits to talk with a pit marshall|
|Checkered – Session over. Complete your lap and come into the pits.|
SPINS – Its OK. Most people do a spin now and then! If you spin somewhere on the the track proceed farther off the track and turn around to get a better view of the track and stop and look. Then orient yourself and check the track for traffic. When it is safe pull back onto the track and you must proceed into the pits to talk to an instructor. If you spin three times may be asked to come back another day.
CAR BREAKDOWNS – If your car breaks down out on the track please stay inside the car where you are safe surrounded by lots of metal. It is better to let your car roll off the track onto the grass to a safe place rather than sit on the track. We will see you are stopped and throw a yellow or red flag and come and get you. If you get out of your car you will be done for the day. Exceptions – If your car is on fire get out. Do not try to fight the fire yourself. We will send out a safety truck.
