It is the riderís responsibility to know all flagging positions and suggest any changes in position. These suggestions need to be made before racing begins to be considered for that day.

Green Flag Ė Indicates start of race or clear track conditions.

Yellow Flag - A) When held stationary-indicates a potentially dangerous situation on or near the track or a slower moving motorcycle. B) When waved vigorously-indicates a hazard or obstacle on the track, avoidance maneuvers may be necessary. Exercise extreme caution, slow your speed until past the situation. Passing for position under a waving yellow flag is NOT allowed and the offending rider will be assessed a penalty.

Red Flag - STOPS the race immediately. The starter and all corner stations will display a red flag. When riders see a red flag they must signal to riders behind them, slow
15
their machine to a safe and controlled speed and proceed slowly to the pit area. Do not stop on the course unless it is impassable or obviously signaled to do so by course workers. Riders not proceeding cautiously will be penalized.

Black Flag - Indicates a safety violation. The rider in question should pull off of the racing surface as quickly and safely as possible and inspect his/her machine or report to the nearest corner station. Failure to respond may result in disqualification. In most cases, the offending riderís number will be displayed on a board at start/finish.

Black Flag with Orange Dot (Meatball Flag) - The rider must complete the current lap and report immediately to the officials on pit lane. This flag may be used to indicate a jump-start or other grid infraction as well as any other situation where the officials deem it necessary to have a rider brought in to inspect the riderís machine or have a verbal discussion with the rider. In most cases, the offending riderís number will be displayed on a board at start/finish.

Yellow Flag with Red Stripes - Indicates debris on the track surface or a slippery track surface. The corner worker will attempt to point to the debris on the track.

White & Green Crossed Flags - Displayed at start/finish, indicates the halfway point of the race.

White Flag - Displayed at start/finish, indicates one lap remaining in the race.

Checkered Flag - Displayed at start/finish, indicates the end of the race or practice and riders should report back to the paddock after the cool-off lap (if available).

We should share our thoughts on what kind of riding season we each are trying to obtain. Probably similar.

FYI... a CMRA race license must be renewed each year. So, if you don't plan on racing this season... it's kinda pointless to get one.

You can however, take the LSTD course(to get your course completion), and that is good for one year(calendar year). So you could take the LSTD course towards the end of the season, than at the begining of next season get your license.

Doesn't the course include obtaining the license?

No, you have to apply for it after the course.

Or is their something I need to do prior to this event?
