Basis of the rules
We apply the regulations of the Finnish Automobile Sports Association AKK for the JOKKIS Everyman’s Race Series. You can download these at https://www.autourheilu.fi/saantokirja/ under the term Jokamiehenluokka. (Finnish language). If you have any questions about the AKK rule book, please feel free to contact us.
Below we have summarized the most important Polar Racing racing rules. These may vary in parts from the AKK rules.
We do not host official racing events – our guests compete for the Polar Racing Championship. Time measurement does not take place.
The starting field
- A maximum of six vehicles may participate in a championship.
- Otherwise, groups of six participants will be formed, each driving a separate championship.
- The groups are determined by our trainers according to the knowledge of the individual participants.
The starting grid
- The starting grid for the first race is drawn by lot. There will be no qualifying.
- The starting grid for the subsequent championship races will be determined in reverse grid mode. The starting grid for the next race is determined by the reverse finish of the last race.
- The starting grid for final races is determined by the championship classification.
Orientation lap and start
- The vehicles are set up in the staging area and go through an introductory round. Afterwards, the race will be released by means of flags.
- If the race is not released, another lap will be driven.
- The car on pole position determines the speed in the formation lap. Overtaking is prohibited during this time.
- The start will be a flying Indianapolis start.
Behaviour on the track
- Leave room – It is forbidden to deliberately push other drivers off the track or endanger them.
- Do not push or jostle – It is forbidden to intentionally ram or turn over other participants.
- Leaving the track – The track may only be left at the pit entrance.
- When the track is blocked – Stop the vehicle immediately and watch for flag signals and announcements.
- After the finish line – Finish the lap slowly and leave the track at the pit entrance.
- In case of accidents or damage – Remain seated in the vehicle and wait for the instructions of the marshals.
- In case of fire – leave the vehicle as quickly as possible and leave the track immediately at the nearest trackside.
Race control as the highest authority
The participant recognizes the race management provided by the organizer as the highest authority for compliance with these rules, whose decisions and instructions must be followed without fail.
In the event of a breach of these regulations, the participant may be excluded in whole or in part from further participation in the event.
