13. Signals and procedures before the start – The pre- start area is opened 10 min. before
– 5 min. – pre- start closed, engines must be stopped. Changing tires without the permission of the COC is prohibited. – 3 min. – all team members except one (who may help start the engine) leave the start area.
– 1 min. – engines are started, the mechanics who helped start the engine go to the edge of the track.
– 30 sec. – the Safety Car (SC) starts leading the warm-up lap.
– Green flag or green lights – the competitors are heading for the warm-up lap (the flag is shown from the main flag point by the right side of the track).
14. Standing start.
There is one (1) warm-up lap in each class. After returning from the warm-up lap, competitors resume their places on the starting grid without the help of marshals. One team member may help the competitor get in position by giving them instructions with their hands or radio communication from behind the safety wall. Team members must leave the area behind the safety wall after the last competitors have stopped in their positions. The 10 SEC broad is shown to the competitors from the main flag point and the red lights are turned on. The lights go out in 1…5 seconds and the moment they go out is the start signal. Any movement of a car when the red lights are on is considered a false start.
15. Rolling start.
There is one (1) warm-up lap in each class.
The starting procedures until the start of the warm-up lap are the same as for a standing start. During the warm-up lap the SC maintains a speed whereby the distance between the cars remains even (the maximum distance between cars may be five car lengths). Team members must leave the area behind the safety wall after the competitor has gone on the warm-up lap. The SC drives the warm-up lap with the yellow flashing lights turned on (the flashing lights may be replaced with a yellow flag). The SC reduces speed during the last third of the warm-up lap so that the competitors behind it can get in pairs according to their positions on the starting grid. Once everyone is correctly placed, the SC turns off the flashing lights and heads from the track to the pit lane before the last corner, after which the car starting from pole position becomes the master car and maintains the same speed until the red lights are turned off. The yellow flashing lights will come on if the cars are not correctly positioned, the cars go on another warm-up lap following the master car and the start is repeated. Cars are under the control of the starter when the red lights are on, i.e. premature acceleration is considered a false start.
16. The warm-up lap or the start may be postponed due to unforeseeable reasons. The‘Start Delayed’ sign is displayed in case of the warm-up lap and a yellow flashing light is turned on when the red lights are lit during the starting procedure. The starting procedure is repeated from the 5 min signal. In case of every additional warm-up lap the length of the race is reduced by the relevant number of laps/minutes.
17. Safety Car.
A Safety Car (SC) may be used to reduce the speed of the competitors and to guarantee safety as follows: – to eliminate a crash situation or to guarantee that a stopped car can be safely towed from the track;
– to guarantee safety in case of bad weather.
A Safety Car may head to the track at any time on the orders of the COC. Overtaking the SC when its yellow flashing lights are on is prohibited until the relevant permission is given. If the car driving behind the SC is not the race leader, then the competitors are allowed to overtake the SC on the orders of the COC and drive to the end of the line of competitors.
Permission to overtake is given when the green flashing light is turned on or a flag signal is given from the window of the SC.
A new start is given to competitors once the danger has been eliminated. The SC turns off the yellow flashing lights in the first half of the lap to signal this. The SC heads to the pit lane before the end of the lap if this is decided by the COC. The green flag displayed at all FPs is the signal of a new start. The main flag point is the first to show a green flag.
After passing this flag, competitors may accelerate and start racing.
The yellow flashing lights of the SC may be replaced with a yellow flag.
18. Red flag.
The race may be stopped with red flags if so decided by the COC. The main flag point is the first to show a red flag and all other FPs will follow. Competitors must stop competing, reduce their speed and be ready stop when the red flag signal is given.
Cars must be stopped by FP9, where the competitors will wait for the next orders of the marshals (go to start line, pit lane or other others).
