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.
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-by.
Being passed? Hold your line!
