SUBJECT: COMPETITION BULLETIN 2013-2: Amendment to Youth and Amateur Registration Rule
Section E. of the GNCC Racing Amateur Rulebook sets forth the restrictions on riders competing in more than one race per day. GNCC only permits riders to compete in one race per day, but has always allowed racers to compete on ATV’s one day and Bike’s the next. This is where the original “Ironman” title originated. However, other off-road series permit riders to compete in more than one race per day. In the event of a series that co-sanctions with GNCC, riders competing in more than one class in the co-sanctioning series are penalized. This is not the intent of the GNCC rule, and may be a deterrent for co-sanctioning series.
Accordingly, the GNCC Rule with regard to riders competing in more than one race is amended as follows:
1. Riders may only compete in one race per day. Riders who violate this rule will be disqualified from both classes. Provided, that at the final round of the season, Youth riders may compete in two races per day; however, their results in the second race will not be counted. Provided further, that UTV team members may compete in either the AM or PM ATV race, Youth ATV racers may compete in the Bike Micro race, and ATV Micro racers may compete in the Bike Micro race. Provided further, in the event of a co-sanctioned GNCC round, racers challenging points in both the GNCC Series and the co-sanctioning series may compete in more than one race per day upon verification from the co-sanctioning body that the racer is actively challenging points in the co-sanctioned series. Upon approval, racers may receive points toward both classes in the co-sanctioning series, but only one race will count for GNCC points.
This modification will clarify the intent of the GNCC Rule.
