There will be trained medical personnel on-site during the race. There will not be an ambulance on-site unless one is called by the medical team. Corner-workers will be on-site.
Scoring (i.e. counting laps) will likely occur with transponders. We’re working on this detail; most likely you’ll be issued a transponder for use, free of charge. Details to follow.
The snack shack will be operational during the race. There may be other on-site food options – details TBD.
SFRC will provide a MIG welder, air compressor, and other specialty tools for general use. Don’t assume we’ll have what you need, though! Please bring your own tools and spares.
Bikes must be show workmanlike construction. Tech requirements for specific bike types to follow, but are in general more slightly less stringent than most road-racing tech requirements. Bellypans are NOT required.
Gear requirements to follow, but full-face helmets, over-the-ankle boots, gauntlet gloves, and full leathers or textile gear required. Leathers or textiles may be two-piece. Back protectors are strongly recommended.
Bikes must be capable of setting lap times consistent with competitors’ machines – please contact us if you have questions about your bike’s eligibility. (Rule of thumb: no mopeds, step-throughs, etc.)
Teams must have fire extinguisher present in pit.
A race license is not required.
Crashed machines must undergo a technical inspection before reentering the race.
Additional rule details will be forwarded to participating teams.
Available spots will be given to teams on a first-come, first-serve basis. A $100 down payment is required to secure your team’s position on the grid, with the balance due on race day. To check availability or start the reservation process please contact Patrick Leyshock at: [email protected].
