unscored pace lap.
2. The pace car is will be positioned at the head of the pack, with emergency lights flashing. When the field
is released, the pace car may begin at a brisk pace, but will be sufficiently slowed before it pulls off the
track to allow orderly grouping of the field. Drivers may not pass the pace car until it pulls off the track
and the pole car will maintain the speed of the pace car before it pulled off track until the green flag. If
the race is not started, another pace lap will be run. The pace car may overtake the field and resume its
function. The front row drivers must not pass the pace car and the pace car may return to its position for
the additional pace lap if there is no start.
3. The Starter shall be safely located where the majority of the drivers in the field can clearly see him as
they approach his position. He shall remain motionless, with the green flag hidden, and no other flags
The Starter will start the race by suddenly and continuously waving the green flag until all cars have
passed the start line if the field is:
a) at a constant slow speed;
b) well bunched and in the staggered grid formation, i.e.the following car’s front axle should not be forward
of the rear axle of the leading car.
c) close enough to the Starter that the majority of the drivers can see the flag.
Racing begins and passing may occur throughout the field when the green flag is displayed.
a) The Starter will abort the start by displaying no flag if the field is not in good order, or if some drivers
have improved their positions by moving out of line or by passing prior to the waving of the green
flag. This advises the drivers to proceed on another pace lap.
b) If a competitor false starts more than twice in a race, he shall be relegated to the rear of the grid for that
