Pits / Service
The Pits will be situated on Pinstone Street. The area will be controlled by a Commissaire and one lap out per rider will be allowed up to 5 laps to go for mechanical faults and punctures. The rider involved must report to the ‘Pits Commissaire’ and show them the fault. Please make sure that your gears and wheels are adjusted or tightened properly. In the event of a crash, the riders directly involved may come to the pits and ask the ‘Pits Commissaire’ for a lap out, with up to 5 laps to go. To get to the pits, riders must go around the course in the direction of the race. Any rider observed taking a short cut will be refused a lap out.
ONLY Bona fide Team Vehicles may park at the Pits area and other helpers may bring spares and equipment. (Team Manager’s must present their licence to the Race Technical Director)
