Race Two Superbike Penalties Explained by Clerk of Course

Posted:

After four, 15-second penalties were issued in the second Superbike race at Wakefield Park on Saturday, Clerk of Course Trevor Franklin explained as to how these penalties were applied.

‰ÛÏThe four riders that were penalised came down to pit exit after the pit exit had been closed - there is a designated time for pit exit to be open." Franklin explained. ‰ÛÏIt was closed as they arrived after that time, so they are then required to start at the rear of the grid as per our regulations.

‰ÛÏThere were five riders there, one took up his position at the rear of the grid and the other four riders did not take up their positions. Therefore technically they had a jump-start and because of the jump-start, they had a 15-second jump-start penalty issued and added to their race times.

‰ÛÏAs per the Series‰Ûª Supplementary Regulations under ‰Û÷Manner of Starting‰Ûª and it is very black and white in there as to what is required, and it is a mandatory penalty.

‰ÛÏIt is also known and is mentioned in riders briefing every morning ‰ÛÒ both verbally to the riders and the briefing is also available for them to pick up, that pit exit is opened for 45 seconds and is then closed.

‰ÛÏSo it‰Ûªs black and white as far as the rules are concerned, and they specifically say a 15-second penalty applies.‰Û
