MNZ Rule 6.0 and 14.1b
“If during the practice or the racing a competitor’s machine malfunctions or becomes disabled for any reason the competitor is unable to continue racing, he/she must signal by raising an arm or a leg, to advise following riders. Riders hold their line until it is safe to move as quickly and safely from the track. The machine must be parked as far from the track as possible, and the rider should move to the safest available position”.
Crashes & Breakdowns
In the event of a fall please signal to the nearest marshal point that you are OK by giving a thumbs up.
This is very important and a failure to do so may result in the session being stopped. You must not remount and continue with the session regardless of your own assessment of the fall. If the motorcycle is able to be ridden you may return to the pits at the conclusion of the session by riding only on the grassed area around the circuit but not on the circuit itself.
If possible, get yourself and your bike safely off the track to a faraway point of the track. Marshals may assist you if safely possible. Your bike will be collected when recovery is available to do so safely. If you can come back to the pits by your own means, make sure you see the following people BEFORE going back out on the track.
• Medical Check-see medical team in attendance
• Machine Check- see Craig Ballantyne
• Gear Check- see Brent Bishop
Crews and families who have an injured rider must go to the race Officials. They will be accompanied by a race official to the medical centre when appropriate. Anyone who has been Hospitalised in the last 7 days should check in with the medical team so they know your medical history should they have to deal with you during the event.

If the circuit also has lights to assist in alerting riders of the conditions along with flags, in the event of any confusion or conflict between each method in use the flags are to be considered correct.
There will be a 5- and a 2-minute call-up for riders to process to the dummy grid. Only 1 other masked crew member is allowed on the dummy grid.

Have a Go Groups
