Important Notice to all drivers

Statement from the Oval Racing Council International

With immediate effect, drivers will not be allowed to exit their cars whilst the race circuit is live i.e. under “green” racing conditions. This includes both drivers on the race track whose car has become immobilised and those who retire to the infield who must also remain in their cars with both their safety harness and helmet on. The only exception to this is where a car needs to be vacated in emergency conditions – i.e. fire etc. If a driver is in a car and feels there is a problem which officials may not be aware of which potentially makes staying there unsafe, they should indicate this to an official with the “thumbs down” signal who will then ask race control to suspend the race. It should be noted that in all cases, the primary cause(s) of the suspension/stoppage, shall be excluded for any re-run or re-start.

If a waved yellow caution or red flag race stoppage is instigated, drivers who are already on the centre must remain strapped in and with helmets on. Drivers who are in immobilised cars on other parts of the circuit may exit their cars whilst the race is suspended but must go into a designated area which is considered by the promotion to be the safest place to be whilst the race is live, which may well be off the track completely.

Drivers will be informed of where this area is by means of a driver briefing or driver handout. Drivers who are still unsure of where this area is should ensure they find out where it is before racing by contacting the Clerk of the Course or another senior official.

Please note that the above covers all formulas and race tracks within the ORC.

Important Drivers Notice

As you are aware some years ago, the ORCi introduced a £1 levy as a contribution towards protecting our sport as much as we can from the various forms of litigation and the environmental minefield that exists within the UK. Not only that, professional advice has been and continues to be engaged to ensure we are compliant in all areas including Health & Safety where potential punishments and fines are now extremely worrying and even criminal.

You will have seen many changes within the sport in terms of Health & Safety and environmental awareness and let us assure you, there is still plenty more to undertake to keep us safe. In recent years the sport has seen several costly challenges, Mildenhall, Buxton, Grimley to name but three in recent years with regards noise and coming over the horizon of course is the 'clean air bill'. There are many other necessary costs such as track audits and inspections to be funded.

The sport continues to invest in consultants and specialists to provide guidance and is currently looking at the legitimacy of organising a Parliamentary Working Party similar to speedway to gain representation at the highest levels. There are also increasing insurance costs to protect the sport additional to the promoters event costs, which again have seen a sharp rise due to increases in IP taxation. ORCi also continues to support Fords administratively.

To continue the progress it has become necessary to fix the meeting levy fee for 2017 onwards at a modest £2 with effect from 1st March 2017.  No one likes an increase but let us assure you, it is a small contribution towards your own sport and worth mentioning that oval racing still represents the best value for drivers in all forms of motorsport - it is less than a 'latte'!

We thank you for your support and wish you a successful 2017 season.
