In order to ensure the risk of accidents, as well as equal opportunities, the organizer pays attention to sufficient breaks between the individual races.
ROUTES AND RACES
Drivers are only allowed to move within the track boundary. If a driver leaves the track unintentionally, he will only remain in the classification if he retracts at the same point. In order to prevent an accident during racing (crashed, lapped drivers, etc.), the track barrier may be left for a short time, there must be no shortening of the distance or a position change relevant to the classification. If there is an advantage, leaving the track is usually considered an attempt at fraud. Failed vehicles must be taken off the track immediately. If a driver retires due to technical problems, the vehicle may be repaired (also by third parties), but only in the paddock or, if necessary, in a pit lane.
An overtaking opportunity must be guaranteed on the entire route. The route should be chosen by the organizer in such a way that it is appropriate for all categories.
Starting from the leading starter, the race time is counted down and then the last 2 or 1 laps are displayed by means of a designated instruction board. Afterwards, the race is finished by waving the black and white checkered flag.
Drivers who have started the race will not be counted in case of retirement.
Excluded or banned starters are not allowed to participate in the races.
IN PARTICULAR, THE FOLLOWING LEADS TO THE EXCLUSION OF THE EVALUATION:
Non-presence at the joint start.
Leaving the track with advantage according to race control, as well as shortening – the intentional obstruction of another participant.
Reckless and accident-prone driving.
Physical violence of the starters or his legal guardians, helpers, team members
Vehicle change only possible with valid acceptance and with approval and notification to race control
Violations in the context of the protest procedure
Vehicles that are too loud or badly damaged
Driving without mandatory protective equipment
Drunk or intoxicated drivers who have gross doubts about the ability to drive
In addition, the organizer/race director may – even without protest – exclude a driver from the classification of the current race if he violates the applicable rules (tender regulations) or defies the instructions of the race management, officials and track marshals.
The race director is entitled to cancel or shorten a race if there are compelling reasons (weather, track condition or accident).
A race can be counted if at least 51% of the race duration has been completed. Again, 100% of the points are estimated.
Protests due to review of a rule violation must be submitted in writing to the race control within the prescribed protest period of 30 minutes after posting the result lists and include a protest fee of 100€. If the protest leader is approved by the race management, the protest fee will be handed over to the protest leader, in case of a negative decision, the protest fee will be forfeited in favor of the PM series. Only drivers or legal guardians who have participated in the same class in the race in question are entitled to protest, the same applies to the defendant.
If the protest is directed against the technology of a vehicle and assembly costs arise, these must be paid in advance by the protest leader or secured against the PM functionaries by pledging, e.g. the identity card. The pledged object used will only be handed over to the protest leader when the costs incurred have been paid in full.
If the dismantling or assembly costs are not paid by 12:00 noon of the following day, the protest proceedings are deemed not to have been opened and the protest fee of 100 € already paid will be forfeited in favour of the PM series.
The vehicle is locked up by a representative of the PM series and subjected to a check on the protest allegation. During this period, none of the vehicles of the same class may be moved elsewhere (within 30 minutes of the start of the protest).
Obviously unfounded protests can be rejected by race control.
A protest against the race control is not permissible.
If the protest was justified, the protest leader will receive the protest fee and all costs incurred. The protest opponent assumes the costs. If a dismantling has been carried out, he receives his vehicle back in the dismantled condition and pays additional compensation of 50 € to the PM series. There are no assembly costs if the protest opponent assembles his vehicle himself.
The dismantling/assembly costs are currently: 150,00 €
If a driver commits a technical rule violation (tampering with the vehicle to gain an advantage) that is found in the protest procedure or if he does not have his vehicle locked up by the PM Race Director on site or resists the investigation, he will be punished with exclusion for this race.
A technical violation automatically deducts the loss of points.
In the case of a non-technical violation of the rules found in the protest procedure, the penalty will be determined by the PM Panel as part of a case-by-case decision. The following may be considered:
SCORING AND PRIZES
