Grades will be combined (D&B and C&A) on the track together. Combined grades will assemble in the start area together and there will be a short time delay between grade starts – faster grade starting first. Riders dropped from their grade shall not join in or interfere with the other grade on the circuit. Riders who have been dropped and are being lapped by their grade may join back in WITH THE MAIN BUNCH BUT MUST NOT CONTEST ANY SPRINTS. At the race managers discretion riders may be pulled from the race.
Faster riders must give way to slower riders and pass to the outside when passing on a corner. The exception to this is in the S bend section where faster riders should pass on the right hand side – The faster group is to warn the slower group to stay left as they approach. There will usually be a rider marshal with D&C grades to assist in this area.

The total accumulated points from each round will be determine the overall ranking for each grade at completion of the series.
