FFCS Racing Rules

Winning is not the only or primary objective – clean racing and camaraderie make winners of everyone.

OUT LAP – no passing during the first lap – may have white or yellow flags displayed.

COOL DOWN LAP – maintain 75 - 90% race speeds to minimize the time between sessions.

START - The driver on pole controls speed approaching start line at pace car speed.  No jumping, wait for green flag.

RESTARTS – VRG does not use a pace car.  During full course yellow, close up to lead car quickly, but safely.

PASSING:

  • Overtaking driver has the primary responsibility for a safe pass.

  • The overtaking driver must be even or slightly ahead at turn-in to pass or receive a point-by.  If not, back out!

  • Do not move back on line until clear of the passed car.

  • No blocking. You may take a defensive line, but no second moves.

  • No “dive bombing”!

  • Use mirrors and point to the side you want to be passed on.

  • Raise your hand to signal entering the pits.

  • Being passed?  Hold your line!

PROPERLY EXECUTED PASS:

WHY "DIVE BOMBING IS DANGEROUS!
