Friday 
Training sessions

 Drivers wishing to take part in the Friday training sessions on the 19th of March must purchase a ticket online. (link)

 

Registration / Wristbands

 After your final registration for the race on track, you will receive the necessary wristbands. (If you race for a team, your team manager will have received all documents needed).

 Only with these wristbands you have access to the track on Saturday and Sunday.

 The urgent advice is to complete the registration on Friday the 19th of March. If you really are not able to complete the registration on Friday, you need to inform the organisation via +32 475 27 25 89

 Are you staying overnight at the campsite? Then you must also wear a wristband on Saturday and Sunday. We work with a closed paddock.

 

Registration / Driver badge

 In your competition folder you will find the necessary competition documents, including a time schedule and the inspection form. The inspection form is, in part, already pre-defined for you.

 The driver badge with barcode must be used for collecting tyres, scrutineering, etc.

 

 

Offering a set of training tyres 

If you are participating in the training sessions on Friday 19 the of March, you must present a set of slick training tyres to our staff in the Parc Fermé.

 The timetable shows the exact times of when you can do this. 

You will need to show your drivers badge. Offering a training set for scanning is only possible if you are registered on site. 

This set of tyres may be new or used and does NOT have to be purchased through the organisation.

This set of scanned tyres, must be used during training sessions 3 to 6. In case it rains you can choose to drive with rain tyres. The number of rain tyres on Friday is unlimited and will NOT be scanned.

 The set of tyres you use for session 1 and/or 2 will NOT be scanned either.

 

Transponder 

From practice session 3 onwards it is mandatory to drive with a working transponder. Make sure your transponder is charged properly.

 The results of the training session can be found via a link which will be announced in the briefing.

 

Technical safety scrutineering

 On Friday afternoon, see the time schedule for the exact times, everyone who trains on Friday must report to the Technical Safety Inspection in Parc Fermé.

 Make sure you can present the following:

 

 

Micro and Mini MAX

 The mechanics for Micro and Mini MAX have to mount a new exhaust mat with a clean and dismounted exhaust pipe in the Parc-Fermé in the presence of a Technical Scrutineer. After the new mat has been fitted, the exhaust pipe will be sealed and marked with the driver's start number. The exhaust will then remain in the Parc-Fermé for the duration of the event.

 The cost of this mat has already been included in the entry fee. Each participant in these classes will automatically receive a voucher. This voucher should be handed over to the Technical Scrutineer.

 Drivers, who are unable to complete the Technical Inspection on Friday, have the possibility to do so on Saturday morning. Please refer to the timetable for this.

 

Saturday

 

Warm-Up

During the Warm-Up of Saturday morning, you can only drive with scanned slick tyres. You therefore have the choice to use either the scanned training tyres from Friday or your slick race tyres. 

Rain tyres can only be used when the Race Director decides that a session is WET.

 It is not compulsory to use rain tyres if the session is deemed to be WET.

 Each group will race against each other:  A vs B, A vs C, A vs D, B vs C, B vs D & C vs D.

 

After all the Senior MAX heats have been run, a provisional ranking will be made. Drivers classified in positions 1 to 30 will automatically qualify for the Pre-Final.

 The remaining drivers will compete in a Second Chance heat on Sunday, where the first six from this race will proceed to the Pre-Final.

 

All other classes will take part in three heats as complete grids.

After the heats, the intermediate ranking will be decided, thereby determining the starting grids for the Pre-Finals.
