The Oval Racing Council would like to announce the following amendments to the “Rules of Racing” with regard to the lining up of cars for restarts, and the reinstatement of cars. These amendments are effective immediately, and apply to all formulas.
Cars will be lined up, in preparation for the restart, in the on-track order prevailing prior to the race suspension (yellow flags) or race stoppage (red flags). Any lapped cars in-between those occupying the top six positional places in the race will be sent around the track, in the direction of racing, to the rear of the grid, and will be credited with regaining one lap back in the race. This means that when the race is restarted at least the top six cars will be in positional order on the track without any back-markers in between.
A driver must NOT un-lap themselves unless instructed to by an official. Any driver un-lapping themselves without permission will be liable to exclusion from the restart.
The Steward of the Meeting is empowered to re-instate any driver being, in their opinion, incorrectly taken out of the race during a suspension or stoppage.
