On behalf of GMC Events Ltd it is our pleasure to supply you with these final instructions for rounds 1 & 2 of the 2014 Enduro21.com ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship, powered by Husqvarna Motorcycles at Canada Heights, Kent. We hope you have a safe, enjoyable and successful weekend.
Each competitor will receive a maximum of five wristbands when signing on. To allow entry into the waiting zone one wristband must be worn by the competitor, and another by the person nominated as mechanic/assistant. The three remaining wristbands will allow free entry into the event for three friends, family, sponsors, or supporters. We kindly request these wristbands are fitted immediately and worn throughout the duration of the event.
** Members of the general public will be among those in attendance. It is a rider’s responsibility to keep his bike safe and secure during the event. Rider’s bikes are left in the paddock area at their own risk.
Any rider that goes off the track (through the tapes) must return to the track in EXACTLY the same place, no matter how much time is lost. This is a matter of safety and fair play.
When in competition please remember the unwritten rule of enduro – if you have been caught by another rider on the special test they may well be faster than you. Please play fairly and let them past. It’s in your best interest.

Leave the M20 or M25 at the Swanley Inter-change (Junction 3 M25) following the brown Brands Hatch chequered flag signs.

Scrutineering: Competitor’s machines will be examined as they enter the waiting area prior to the start of the sighting lap. Numbers must be clearly displayed on all three sides of your bike. Clutch and brake levers must have ball ends and your throttle must be self-returning. Riders of any bikes deemed to be excessively noisy during the sighting lap will be asked to make their bikes quieter – fit new exhaust system, re-pack silencer, etc. Please ensure your helmet has the approved ACU transfer.
Sighting lap: Starts at 9.00am prompt. Please ensure you are in the waiting area prior to 9.00am. The special test will then be open for one sighting lap. This will allow all riders to familiarise themselves with the track. During the sighting lap all riders will be on track together. Be respectful of other riders, it is not a race.
Lap start times: The approximate start time for each lap will be displayed on the event notice board. The organisers will make a paddock announcement prior to the start of each lap. It is the rider’s responsibility to ensure he/she is in the waiting area in good time prior to the start of any given lap.
Waiting zone: Only riders and one designated person per rider are allowed into the waiting area, both must wear the appropriate wristband issued.
Start: Riders will start each special test as they would a test in any other enduro event. From the waiting area you will be directed to the start line where you will await instruction from the starter. Once in position and signalled to do so you are free to start. Riders will start at 20-second intervals. Listen to the instructions of officials and do not delay your start – we need to keep the event moving.
Refuelling: Riders will return to their pit area after each special test. Please refuel your bikes on either an environmental or work mat. If you change engine/gearbox oil take the old oil home with you. Oil drained directly onto the ground, from any bike entered into the event, will result in associated rider(s) being disqualified from the event.
Pressure washing: ACU regulations state that pressure washers are not permitted, unless a suitable bike washing area is specified.
Breakdowns: If a rider breaks down and is unable to complete any given lap he/she will be awarded the time of the slowest rider in class, for that lap, plus two minutes (120 seconds). Riders are free to receive outside assistance (pushing) in order to get bikes back to the pits. While in competition riders will be excluded for accepting outside assistance, in the form of tools or spare parts, anywhere on the track.
Accidents: If you get injured please report it to an event official. First Aid staff will be in attendance. If you pass a fallen/injured rider please report it to an event official as soon as you complete your lap.
Refreshments & Toilets: Toilet facilities and a food van will be on site throughout the weekend.
Smoking: No smoking is permitted within the pit area at any time.
Course Cutting: Trusted event officials and track marshals will be situated around the full length of the course. Any rider reported to the Clerk of the Course for course cutting will be excluded from the event. If you run off the track for any reason you must return to the track in exactly the same place you left it (provided it is safe to do so).
Results: Close to the start/finish of the special test there will be an Michelin Event Notices Tent. The results of each lap will be displayed here. This will ensure all riders know their current position at the start of each lap.
Blue tape restricted speed area: The entire paddock area is considered a ‘blue tape’ area whether marked as such or not. Riders must not exceed walking pace. The penalty for failing to comply is disqualification.
Penalties: Information on all penalties can be found in the Sprint Enduro Championship Regulations
Retirement: If you retire from the event you must inform a race official immediately.
We won’t tolerate: Any aggressive or abusive behaviour. Keep it friendly so everyone can enjoy themselves.
