Racing classes are per the ACU handbook for track racing.  Norwich New Stars has a separate pit area, this has restricted access on race meetings and motorcycles are only able to be started in this area and when authorised to do so. This is by request of the land owners.

Starting Tapes: If a child causes a false start he/she will be cautioned and can join the restart. If he/she then causes a false start a second time in the same heat he/she may be penalised for that heat.

Pegs and other racing incidents: At the discretion of the Clerk of the Course an offender’s number will be written on the board in the pit area as a warning. On a second offence the rider may be penalised. It is the rider’s responsibility to check the board and information given.
