At the end of pit walk, drivers will be called to drivers’ briefings – sedans in the clubrooms and open wheels in front of the pit office/corporate box. Only people required at drivers briefing will be admitted. (e.g. drivers, guardians, officials). All other people will be required to leave the pits.
Teams are reminded not to leave valuables laying around when the pits are cleared. Security and Officials will clear the pits checking all vehicles and transporters. Once the pits are cleared, those with an authorised armband will be readmitted.
This protocol is required to ensure we follow all Speedway Australia Racing Rules and Regulations and limit the liability for any potential insurance claim. Everyone’s assistance will ensure this is an easy process and allow the pit walk to continue in the future.
Children in transporters.
