EVENT

Event

Are you organizing “real” car-races?

That depends on what your “real” car races are for you.

If only officiall races like DTM or Formula 1 are “real” car races for you -> NO
Here a race or a racing series is “advertised”, teams “sign up” and participate with their own vehicles, mechanics, equipment, etc..

If, for example, a go-kart race with like-minded people is a “real” race for you -> YES
On our race days you can ride your own wheel-to-wheel races with real (“FIA-approved”) racing cars.

Our events are closed events. The participants use our vehicles and equipment and we provide the necessary staff. No race teams can register and participate in our races with their own vehicles.

Thus, our events are more like a go-kart event with a group of like-minded than an officiall racing-event.

How you make sure, I do not have to race alone?

A championship with six races alone or one on one is not really exciting and a too large number of participants can significantly reduce the driving pleasure.

Therefore, we ensure that our groups have always the optimal size.

To ensure this, our booking process must be slightly different from that of a “normal event”.

  • Choose your desired date from our event list.
  • We confirm your date request with reservation.
  • Your travel plan – We will take you there.
    You can already use our concierge service and book your journey and hotel. Our concierge service will take care that these can be canceled free of charge in the case the event is canceled.
  • As soon as a suitable participant field is together for the desired event, we guarantee your booking.
    If, for once, there is no suitable group, we will cancel your booking at least 60 days before the scheduled date.
Can I use my own drivers equipment?

You can use your own drivers equpment, as long it is compliant with:

  • FIA 8856-2000
Can I bring a companion to the track?

For safety reasons no companions are allowed at the Polar Raceway.

If you wish, we could organize a visit for your companion at the track. So your companions can see you in action.

RACE RULES

Racing

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.

Preamble

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 route 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.

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.

Violations

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.

Alcohol and drugs

Participation in the event under the influence of alcohol or drugs is prohibited. Polar Racing has the right to carry out checks before and during the event and to exclude participants who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
