- Entrants may bring one vehicle and one trailer or caravan only onto the paddock area. Generators must not be used before 7am and must be switched off by

- Competitors and Traders attending the meeting are asked to bear in mind the following when setting out their pit space: Where tents/canopies are erected
these shall, as far as practicable, be alternated with any parked vehicle, in order that the spread of fi re from one such canopy to an adjacent canopy is
minimised. Where pit spaces are laid out with vehicles in tandem a similar arrangement of parked vehicles and canopies is maintained. For the purpose of
these recommendations a caravan shall be treated as a canopy. The intention of these recommendations is the maintenance of a space of approx. 3 metres
between canopies where it is considered there is a risk of a fi re hazard.
- All entrants are responsible for the members of their supporting team, relatives and friends, for the proper positioning of the vehicles and equipment and
for their proper use of all club facilities. Drivers will be excluded from the meeting if they, or any members of their team, are found damaging crops, any
part of the track or surroundings; breaching these rules, or in any way conducting themselves contrary to a standard reasonably expected such as abusive or

points, will be determined on the calculated grid position for the fi nal. Should there be a tie for fi nal position. If there is a tie for Championship points the
winner will be determined by the highest number of fi nishes. Non-attendance at a round does not prevent that round being dropped, but if a driver is
