GNCC Competition Bulletin: Towing Into Pits

Tuesday, June 3, 2008 | 12:00 AM


TO: All Can-Am GNCC Racing Competitors
FROM: GNCC Competition Department
DATE: June 3, 2008
SUBJECT: Outside Assistance and Staff Towing

It is necessary to clarify the policy with regard to the towing of disabled machines back to the pit area during competition. The rule is as follows:

The towing of race vehicles back to the pit area is considered outside assistance.

Racers whose disabled vehicles are towed back to the pit area by staff or otherwise, for any reason, are not eligible to return to the competition that day.

Any laps earned by a racer that returns to competition after receiving a tow back to the pit area will be removed.

If a racer desires to repair their machine and return to the competition, they must decline the offer to tow their vehicle back to the pit area.

This rule does not apply to racers towed only a short distance in order to dislodge the vehicle from a track obstacle (i.e., mud pit, deep rut, ravine, etc.).
