The checkered flag is displayed at the track entrance to indicate that your session is finished. Its now time for another batch of riders to have some fun.
The solid green flag is usually displayed by the starter to indicate the start of a session. During a session, it is displayed at the end of a caution period or a temporary delay to indicate that the session is restarting.
The solid yellow flag, or caution flag, universally requires riders to slow down due to a hazard on the track. A single stationary flag denotes a hazard off the course. A single waved flag denotes a hazard on the racing surface itself. Please ride with caution in these areas until the flags are no longer shown.
The solid red flag is displayed when conditions are too unsafe to continue the session. Riders must immediately slow down and will be directed to proceed back to pit road or to stop at a specific spot. Riders must raise their hand to indicate that they are slowing down, slow down to first gear, finish their lap and exit the track unless otherwise directed.
Meatball – Uh oh, someone’s been naughty. The meatball flag is used to summon a rider to the pits. It is signal to a rider for disobeying the rules. You must finish your lap and immediately report to the pits for instructions.
Black Flag- Is used when a bike is suffering from a dangerous mechanical failure. Slow down and pull off to the side of the track in safe place. Check your bike for fluid leaks or other problems. If your bike is not ride able, get off the track and wait for assistance. If your bike is still ride able, slowly finish your lap and come into the pits.
The yellow and red striped flag is displayed stationary at local flag stations to indicate that there is something on the track which could reduce grip or cause a motorcycle to lose control – generally oil, coolant, small pieces of debris or sand.
In order for a rider to advance from one group to the next; the rider must pass an on track check out session with a HardNoX instructor. Please email us in advance of your track day to arrange this session.
In order to conduct the “check out session” riders must register and ride in their CURRENT group. This means if you are a Novice rider you must register and ride in Novice. IF you pass your check out; and IF there is room in the next group, THEN you can move up a group in the same day. IF there is NOT room in the next group; you can still ride in your current group, and then register in the next group for the next track day. Same applies for Intermediates wanting to advance to Expert.
If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the event of a sell out of a group, or day; HardNoX will NOT have a wait list, and walk-ups will NOT be accepted. Due to insurance rules we cannot add riders once a group has reached its limit.
