    3. Drivers are required to be registered, and to provide the signed Vehicle Technical Self Declaration form to scrutineering (available at http://time-attack.ca/forms/) before being allowed on track.
    4. Drivers/passengers must have the appropriate long sleeved shirts, long pants and socks (Rule 1.2.1).
    5. Only people who have signed the track waiver and have a wristband will be allowed in the paddock area.
    6. Passengers 18 years or older will be allowed during practice and/or lapping after signing a waiver. Minor passengers must be at least 14 years old, and may only ride with parent or guardian with the approval of the organizer and completion of the waiver and parental consent. (Rule 1.7.2) Parental consent is here: http://time-attack.ca/forms/
    7. All cars must be classified before registration is complete. Competitors competing under iPax must classify their car online at http://ccdb.casc.on.ca/ Be sure to bring a printed copy of the approved classification. Raw Time Challenge Competitors should determine the classification of their cars based on the RTC rules found in Section 7 of the Rulebook. You will be asked to specify the class of your car to the registrar, based on the RTC rules. Each iPax competitor shall present upon demand, by any race official or fellow competitor, a copy of their car's classification declaration on paper for inspection (including, if applicable, race weight and dyno declarations). Any competitor who is unable to provide such documentation shall be scored in Modified class at the event in question.
    8. All cars are required to display the designated door cards and windshield banners. (Rule 3.6.1)
    9. Lunch is planned for noon and will be available for purchase for those people who have indicated their intention to do so.
    10. Passing by point by only will be available in the morning sessions.

Passing will always be done on the inside of the track for the subsequent corner. Please see below
    11. Signaled passing will be according to the OTA rulebook section 2.3. Each passing zone will be marked with pylons. Designated passing Zones are:
    Zone 1 – Between Turns 5 and 6 (passing on the left, passed car stays right)
    Zone 2 – Between Turns 10 and 11 (passing on the right, passed car stays left)
    Zone 3 – Between Turns 11 and 12 (passing on the right, passed car stays left)
    Zone 4 – Between Turns 14 and 15 (passing on the right, passed car stays left)
    Zone 5 - Between Turns 15C and 1 (passing on the right, passed car stays left)


    Competition Rules
    There is no passing of competing vehicles during Time-Attack Competition

    12. Timed competition runs are planned for the afternoon only with 2 main groups named Group X and Group Y the composition of which will be made known at the second mandatory drivers’ meeting. It is vitally important that drivers be on the grid and in their cars in the appropriate order as designated by the grid marshals. Late comers to the grid or drivers who are not available for their appropriate time slot may not be allowed to run in that particular session.
    13. Drivers will be released on to the track for their warm up lap at designated intervals and are required to not decrease that interval until they start their first “hot” competition lap. Runs will consist of 1 “warm up” lap, 3 timed competition laps followed by 1 “cool down” lap. The plan is for every competitor to have 3 timed runs.
    14. In any turn, if both inside or outside wheels of the vehicle are simultaneously and clearly on the grass or dirt, you will be deemed “two wheels off” which will incur a time penalty. Course and Flag Marshals are considered judges of fact throughout the event.
    15. To discourage competitors from cutting the curbing and dragging debris on to the track, pylons may be placed off the track surface at certain corners. Competitors who move these pylons will receive a two-wheels-off penalty.
    16. If a competitor's car spins off the track, they are to stay off the track (or move further off the track to a safe location) and are not to return to the pavement until the end of their run group. These competitors are designated as no longer competing and may be passed by competing cars.
    17. If a competitor’s car spins and does not go “two wheels off” he may continue as quickly as possible and not suffer any penalty unless the following car is required to stop or receive a white flag
    18. In the event of a competing car having a mechanical problem during a competition run, the driver should park his car in a safe area well off the surface of the track and wait until the end of the session before attempting to come back to the pits
    19. Failure of a driver to obey marshals’ flags may lead to a time penalty or disqualification at the discretion of the clerk.

    General Points

    20. Competitors are encouraged to volunteer for various duties (registration, grid marshal, timing, etc). If we do not have sufficient volunteers, competitors may be asked to take on a specific duty.
    21. The track will configuration will include turn 13 for Event 3 and exclude Turn 13 for Event 4 at the discretion of the organizers.
    22. The east end of the paddock (closest to the Grand Prix track) will be off limits for camping or pitting and will be demarcated. Drivers without trailers are encouraged to use the west and north sides of the parking lot.
    23. There will be an autoslalom competition run by OMSC in the east end of the parking lot on Sunday June 10
    24. Coffee will be provided at registration
    25. The governing regulations for this event are in the 2018 Ontario Time-Attack rulebook
    26. Additional supplementary regulations may be instituted during the weekend.

          From the timing truck, we would also kindly ask that all competitors put up their windshield banners.

          There were a few competitors without their banners at TMP and I can understand that given they were only handed out the day of.

          At DDT, it can be harder to see the car number due to the angle of the approach to the timing truck so the windshield number becomes super critical.

          Thanks for co-operating!

            If you are only doing morning lapping on that day. will timing still be provided if you already have an RFID tag?

              We will ask you to return the RF tag if you are lapping. Providing timing is part of the full competition fee.

                More stuff:

                Windshield banners and door cards will be available for those who haven't picked up theirs yet.

                Also bring at least one copy of your approved PIP schedule (preferably two)

                Don't forget to do your self check and bring your self check form for the scrutineers.

                Also as a reminder, every effort will be made to keep to the daily schedule. This means don't show up at 8:45 and expect to be welcomed warmly. We don't have a track PA system (other than Stephen's voice) and lapping sessions as well as competition sessions will not be individually announced. It is the driver's responsibility to show up at the grid on time for his/her appropriate sessions.

                Finally, if for some reason it is YOUR car that leaks oil on the track, you are morally required to be involved in the clean up of the oil BEFORE you start working on your car to fix the leak etc.

                  Are competitors required to use the latest door placards and windshield banner or can they use the ones from 2017?

                    I have a box that Stephen Deneka left for me with the decals, I will be at the track Friday evening by 6pm likely; shoot over and see me if you want to get them early to install without the pressure of race day! I have some razor blades as well for trimming the windshield banners..

                            Windshield banner can be reused but door cards should be updated as the sponsors and logos have shifted and changed. Would be good to keep them appeased.

                              No, the one tech sheet works for both days. Assuming you don't make any significant off track excursions, you should only need to be teched once for the weekend.

                              BTW, the weather looks good so at this stage, I would suspect 2 kinks for Saturday and only 1 kink for Sunday. Going straight up the west straight makes the last kink quite interesting. As a faster competitor said to me, it takes "commitment"
