TECH INSPECTION

All riders are required to go through tech inspection after they’ve completed sign-in processes, paid any necessary fees and received their yellow tech form (1 form per class entered). Tech Inspection is usually located to the rear of sign-up. Please take your bike(s), helmet and the yellow form(s) directly after signing up to tech inspection. We go over the basic motorcycle safety of bike and verify that correct displacement and year of the bike matches the class(es) entered. Helmets are checked for safety as well. Tech inspection must be completed before practice.


MANDATORY RIDERS MEETING


We hold a mandatory riders meeting in the morning of each event following sign-in and tech inspection where we go over track changes, updates, starting procedures, the flags used, laps and answer and rider questions at that time. All riders are required to attend.


PRACTICE & AGGRESSIVE RIDING


Practice is Practice! It is a time to get to know the track, not to race each other. Aggressive riding will not be tolerated.


LIVE SCORING


For the 2020 racing season, we will be using transponders to enhance our scoring system provide by eTimeit.  The staff at www.etimeit.com will be managing the race day registrations and check-in procedures, along with starting line staging and other trackside responsibilities. Some of the benefits in using their services include, but not limited to; live scoring, live lap times, quick and efficient resulting, online series point keeping and the ability to sharing live on personal social media outlets for riders, friends and family.


SCORING


1. The Olympic scoring method is used for each moto:  1 point for first, 2 points for second, 3 points for third, etc. The smallest score wins.


2. Riders must complete at least one full lap to be scored.


3. A non-starter is anyone who does not complete one full lap, following the circuit in its entirety; a DNS receives no points.


4. A non-finisher is anyone who completes one full lap but does not reach half-distance of the race; a DNF receives last-place points plus two positions, to avoid scoring problems.


5. A finisher is anyone who completes at least half the number of laps completed by the class winner in a moto (e.g., three laps of a five-lap moto); points are paid in the order of finish.


6. Each race concludes with the display of the checkered flag, even if a competitor believes the number of laps is not consistent with pre-race instructions.


7. Ties are decided by the finishing position in the last moto.


8. The rider, not the motorcycle, is the entry. A rider may switch to a second eligible motorcycle for the second moto in each class, but the rider MUST notify the sign-up staff at the registration trailer of the change and any new bike number prior to second moto and be sure to transfer his/her transponder accordingly.


9. If there are too many entrants for one moto, a class will be split at random and run as if there were two separate events.  Series points will be awarded as if there were two separate events.


10. PROTESTS: Results will be posted as soon as possible after the finish of a race.  Once posted, there will be a 30-minute review time.  If a rider believes there is an error in scoring, he or she must speak to scoring manager at sign-up or OSSRG Referee within 30 minutes of the provisional results being posted. Unprotested results will stand.  Any discrepancies will be resolved at the track. All results posted on the OSSRG website are considered final and can only be modified under direction of the OSSRG Director.


SERIES POINTS DISTRIBUTION
 

1. Points will be awarded according to each moto finish, without regard to rider’s overall performance for the day.


2. A rider will receive points if he or she is the sole class competitor.


3. A rider who moves up to a higher skill level within a class, will take half their earned points with them. 


4. A rider must score points in at least four out of the five events in 2020 to be eligible for series awards.


5. The following points are awarded for each moto placing:
1=20, 2=16, 3=13, 4=11, 5=10, 6=9, 7=8, 8=7, 9=6, 10=5, 11=4, 12=3, 13=2 & 14=1


6. Year-end scoring ties will be broken as follows:
Year-end scoring ties will be broken by the greatest number of moto wins, then second-place moto finishes, third place, etc. In the event of an absolute tie, the oldest rider wins.


7. If only one moto is run during a Race Day, double points will be awarded.


TROPHIES & AWARDS


We trophy at 33%, which means 1 for every 3 riders get a trophy.


ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY

We have a "Zero or "NO" Tolerance Policy" during any OSSRG racing event when there is a live track. There is to be no consumption of alcohol by anyone who is racing with us on any given race day. Any rider found drinking or under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance will be disqualified immediately and asked to leave the racetrack. This is for the safety and wellbeing of the rider and everyone else around him or her.
