Rules:

The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events.  These rules shall govern the condition of all events, and by participating in these events all participants are deemed to have complied with these rules.  NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATIONS OF, OR COMPLIANCE WITH THESE RULES AND OR REGULATIONS.  They are intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator or official. Oregon Superbikers (OSB) shall be empowered to permit minor deviations from any of the specifications herein or impose any further restrictions that in OSB's opinion do not alter the minimum acceptable requirements.  NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM SUCH ALTERATION OF SPECIFICATION.  Any interpretation or deviation of these rules is left to the discretion of OSB.  Their decision is final.

Rider Eligibility, Requirements and Etiquette:

 

The rider is required to understand the rules and regulations and abide by them at all times as stated below.  Violation of any rule or regulation will be grounds for immediate disqualification or ejection from the race track by race officials.  To be eligible to race each participant must be at least 5 years of age or older (age will be determined based on riders age at the beginning of the race season).  For participants who are under 18 a parent or guardian must sign all required race entry forms and be present at the track at all times.  All participant riders must be a member of the OSB or a member of a recognized mini racing or Supermoto Racing association.  

Championship points will only be accrued by current OSB members.  Riders are responsible for their own medical costs; the promoter does not provide medical coverage.  Each rider is required to have inside their race leathers a completed medical form.  The form can be obtained at the registration table on practice/race day.  Riders must pay all required registration fees and sign waivers prior to practicing or racing.  Check, Cash and Visa are all acceptable forms of payment.  Riders whose checks do not clear forfeit all points for the race day and shall be held responsible for the amount of the bad check plus a $20.00 NSF fee.   

A rider who engages in dangerous behavior at the race track facility will be will be subject to disciplinary action.  Any intentional bumping, crowding, blocking or unsportsmanlike-like conduct will be grounds for disqualification by race officials.  Riders are responsible for the conduct of persons associated with him/her at the race track.  The rider will be held accountable and penalized for their associate’s behavior.

Motorcycle and rider must pass all required technical inspections to practice or race. The race director of OSB may have any motorcycle torn down at his/her discretion.  Bikes found in violation due to illegal class modification will forfeit all points and be ineligible to race until the bike is checked and found to be within compliance.  Riders may substitute a different bike at any time as long as it is legal to run in that class.

If a race is stopped for any reason, it will be considered completed if 75% plus 1 lap of the race has been completed.  Finishing positions will be based on the prior lap.  Any rider causing a red flag will automatically be scored last.  In the event a red flag is thrown and the race is not considered "completed" the rider causing the red flag to come out will be required to grid in last position and all other riders will grid based on their prior laps finishing position.  Riders not able to continue will be scored as a DNF.  

Riders must complete race to be scored .


Riders jumping the start will be moved to the back of the grid.

Riders must signal by raising their left arm when leaving the race track for any reason.  In the event a rider goes down and is able to get back up and safely continue they are eligible to re-enter the race.  If a rider is unable to finish due to a mechanical reason, they should raise an arm to signal they are ok and position themselves and their bike away from the track surface.  If a rider goes down and is seriously injured the race will be stopped.

Three entries are required under the existing class structure to constitute a minimum field for that designated class.  In the event a minimum number of riders (3) are not registered for a given classification of bike, the classification may be combined with another class but scored separate.  This is to be determined at the race director's sole discretion.

Riders  may migrate up bike class from their bikes designated class.  Novices are not allowed to run a mod 50 bike in the 80gp class.  Riders who desire to migrate up more than two bike class may be eligible at the race director's discretion based on rider ability.  It is highly recommended that novices do not compete or practice on 80gp bikes.

Alcohol is not permitted in the pit area at any time during practice or the races.  Illicit drugs are not allowed at any time.  A chemical or CO2 (B/C) fire extinguisher is required in each pit.

Code of Conduct:

OSB expects riders to engage in proper conduct to resolve differences between parties in the spirit of good sportsmanship.  If a conflict between two riders cannot be resolved in that spirit, it is to be brought to the attention of the organizer of OSB by one of the riders involved.  Both (or all) riders involved in the conflict are required to attend a meeting with the organizer.  Involvement by the organizer will automatically put all riders involved on notice that the OSB code of conduct will be adhered to under threat of penalty. 

Problems with a rider's conduct are to be brought to the attention of the organizer of OSB by the affected rider directly involved in the incident.  All parties will conduct themselves in a quiet, professional and courteous manner.  They are to articulate their point without emotion, profanity or creating a scene.  The failure by either party to comply will result in penalties accessed for their conduct during the meeting in concurrence with penalties accessed for their actions on the track.

The organizer will meet with the riders directly involved with the incident only; no other individuals may be present.  If an individual(s) not involved interferes with the meeting, the rider with whom the individual is associated will be penalized regardless of the findings.

Riders who threaten physical violence to any rider, track employee, race organizer, spectator or any other persons may be ejected from the track for that event. Riders who engage in physical violence will be ejected from the track and not allowed to attend future OSB events.  Collective information from the track officials will be gathered on each rider in the incident.  The total tally of incidents involving each rider and the severity of their actions will be considered in the call.  Each party may be penalized by the findings.  Decisions by the officials are final.

If a rider is found to be a danger to other riders on the track they will be warned and/or removed from race events at the discretion of the race director.  There is no appeal of this process.  If a rider is found to be a danger to riders at multiple race events they will not be allowed to participate in the future OSB events.

BIKE CLASSIFICATIONS:     Bikes that fall outside of the race class structure will forfeit any points earned until the bikes are brought back to a legal class status.
