The pit lane opens thirty minutes before the start of a race, during which time drivers may drive around the track as much as they like, driving through the pitlane each time around in order to avoid the grid. Drivers must be in their cars and in place on the grid by time the pit lane closes at -15:00; otherwise they must start the race from the pits. Meanwhile, teams may work on their cars on the grid. At -10:00 the grid is cleared of everyone except team mechanics, race marshals, and drivers. A team will generally want to keep its tyres off their cars and heated in their tyre-warmers for as long as possible, but they must be attached to the cars by -3:00. Engines must be running by -1:00; at fifteen seconds to the start all personnel must be clear of the track. Two green lights signify the start of the formation lap, also known as the parade lap, during which drivers must remain in the same order (no passing) except if a car ahead has stopped due to a technical problem, or has had an accident. The cars circle the track once, usually weaving from side to side to warm up their tyres, and form up again in their starting positions on the grid. If, for some reason, a car cannot start the race (engine failure during qualifying or practice, suspension fails, etc), the car can still join the race, but will take a 10-position penalty at the start. For example, if the car qualifies in 3rd, but has to change an engine at any point during the race weekend prior to the actual race, the car will start from 13th position. For strategy's sake, teams will sometimes opt to start a car affected in this way from the pit lane. This means they start at the tail end of the grid; however, they can not only change an engine, but also start the race on a full load of fuel and with fresh tyres. The race is started by five red lights, controlled by FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting. The lights illuminate one at a time, left to right, in one-second intervals, and then go out simultaneously after an interval of between four and seven seconds. When the lights go out, the race begins. Should the start need to be aborted for any reason, all five red lights will come on as normal, but instead of going out, the three orange lights will flash. All engines are stopped and the start resumes from the five minute point. If a single driver raises his hand to indicate that he can't start, the marshall for that row will wave a yellow flag, then after a few seconds, both the red and orange lights will extinguish and the green lights will come on to indicate another formation lap Penalties may be imposed on drivers for numerous offenses, including starting prematurely, speeding in the pitlane, causing an accident, blocking unfairly, or ignoring flags of any color. There are four types of penalty which a driver may incur for violation of on-track rules: * The drive-through penalty requires the driver to enter the pitlane, drive through it while obeying its speed limit, and exit without stopping. * The ten-second (or stop-go) penalty requires the driver to enter the pitlane, stop at his pit for ten seconds, and exit again. Team mechanics may not work on the driver's car at any time while the driver is serving the penalty. * A more extreme penalty may be imposed for more severe infractions: adding ten places to the driver's grid position at the next grand prix, e.g. if he qualified in pole position he would start the race eleventh from the front. * The most severe penalty in common use is a black flag, which may be imposed for ignoring penalties or for technical irregularities of any sort; it signifies that the driver has been disqualified from the race and his results for that race will not count toward the championship. * If the black flag is not considered sufficient for the offense that the driver has committed, they may be banned for a number of races after the event. * The most extreme punishment of all (used for seriously endangering the life of another driver) is to be excluded from the drivers world championship that year. Such cases may, of course, also be taken to court. For the drive-through and stop-go penalties, a driver has three laps from the time his team hears of the penalty to enter the pits; if he does not pit within three laps, he will be black-flagged. If he incurs a penalty within the last five laps of the race, he need not pit at all; instead, twenty-five seconds will be added to his total race time.
The 4 by 100 meters is a sprint relay, where teams of four runners complete a whole lap around the standard outdoor track by completing 100 meters each. In this race, the baton for tagging must be passed within a given set of parameters, in this case, a 20 meter changeover box marked by yellow lines, 10 meters before and after the beginning of each subsequent leg of the race. The outgoing runner is limited to an orange acceleration marker line 10 meters farther back, from which he / she is forbidden to start beyond it.
There are a couple different 4x100 meter relays. In the freestyle relay the rules are a swimmer may swim any legal stroke, and just like any other relay in the exchange the next person's feet may not leave the block until the swimmer finishes. Each swimmer either does 4 lengths(in a 25 meter/yard pool) or 2 lengths(in a 50 meter pool).
The basic rules for a drag race: line up next to each other on a sanctioned drag strip, leave when you're supposed to but NOT before, and drive like hell to get to the other end before the other car does. In ET Bracket Racing, you decide how fast your car will run before you make your first pass, which is called the "dial-in" time. They start the two cars at different times to compensate for dial-in, and the car that runs closest, but not faster than, its dial-in time wins. The cars are started with a Christmas tree, which is so called because of all the lights on it. There are three distances for drag racing: 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile and 1000 feet. Nitro classes run on 1000-foot distances as a "temporary measure" after Scott Kalitta died in 2008.
Nascar allows bump drafting on restrictor plate tracks, no speeding on entrance or exit of pit road, a guy that runs over a hose gets a penalty. Nascar is against drug abuse because that is what happened to Jeremy Mayfield, who was supposed to run a full-time schedule in 2009. In 2010 the drivers wanted everything back in their hands, like making the switch from the wing, back to the spoiler.
There are lots of different rules depending on your event. I am a high jumper, so I will give you some of the basic rules: no jewelry, no more than 10 steps in your approach, must leave the ground off one foot, and (contrary to popular belief) if the bar falls at all as a result of your jump, it is a scratch. The rule used to be if you got off the pad before the bar fell, the jump was good. That is no longer the rule. The bar goes up 2 inches at a time, and everyone gets 3 attempts at each height. If you miss all three, you are out. That goes until one person is left. When there is only one person left, they can raise it by however much they want until they miss 3 times at a height and they are also out. Places go by highest jump, with the total number of attempts as a tiebreaker.
Whichever rules NASCAR decides to enforce.
That will vary depending on the track, the skill of the builders, and the rules used. Some packs allow outside wheels and axles etc and some "just what is in the box". At my son's pack, using a fairly typical track and rules, the times are usually between 2 and 3 seconds.
The rules of posting into a general ledger are simple. Keep track of expenses in one part of the ledger and keep track of credits in another part.
some luge rules are you can not stop in the middle of the track and you can not get off the luge at the end of the race enless your coach tells you to. when you are lugeing you can not sit up you can only put your head up for you can see where you r going. By: Ravenne K.
To ride test track, according to Disney's rules, you have to be at least 40 inches tall.
cannot get off the bike xx
The benfit is that we don't break rules and plus westay on track
You can't go off the track when you're racing, you need your assigned uniform at meets, and you need to stay in your own lane in certain races. You should also have under armor. Track is really fun! And the rules aren't hard at all to follow.
They make sure that everyone follows the rules, and blows an annoying whistle.
With sandpaper. Make sure you DULL the whole ball and not just the track since it is against the rules to dull just the track.
the thrilling ice track sport famed for split-second finishes.
an official who enforces the rules at a football game or a track and field meet
Yes some of them do. My YMCA track has an indoor track that is upstairs. It is not a full size track though.
