manfield 62021

Each team sets their own ride strategy – only one person from each team is allowed on the track at a time. 
Timing transponder is passed from one team member to the next like a baton in a running relay.

Do it solo or get in a team and take turns out on the track.

Our event recognizes the impact that COVID-19 has had on the country and in this case, the events industry.

While the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and transmission in the community is currently low, the event
acknowledges that COVID-19 is still uncontrolled overseas and as such we should not be complacent
given COVID-19 can still spread quickly if it re-emerges.

The Passing Rule

All riders are to keep on the inside line on all parts of the course. Faster riders are to pass on the outside line on all occasions.

Slower riders have the right of way and are not to deviate to make way for faster riders.

Faster riders are to clearly announce that they are coming up on slower riders.

Be aware of riders splitting away from a bunch to enter the transition area and of slower merging riders when leaving the transition area.

Transition

Riders will enter the transition zone through the Slow Down area and dismount on entry to the Transition Zone. Exchanging the transponder will take place in the transition zone and the new rider is to remount the bike only on exit from transition zone.

Entry onto the course proper will only occur when authorised to do so by the marshal. Failure to comply with this rule will see teams penalised.

Overall Results For anybody who can remember their transponder number and if it was one of the transponders from Motorsport Manawatu you have the ability to login and see each actual laptime for your event. Use your transponder number as your login and use the same for your password. Please do not change these as it will mean that no one else will be able to use the system. Please remember to logout when you are finished.  eg team Hotel Coachman uses mm16 for login and password.
