Rules change proposals:
Nice work Steven, i think the meatball flag would be a great addition.
Regarding late to gate / gate starts.
If we are to look at a late to gate rule change, I think it should be workable at any track / configuration, Riders do not pass the gate again at Strato for example. Hopefully we soon have potential to race at more than one venue. Imagine 3 or 4 Alberta tracks soon, OMG.
I think riders meetings say that riders need to be stopped at grid one minute after the first bike grids; perhaps gate should close one minute after the first bike leaves gate.
Starts from gate, I have mixed feelings on, my tires went cold the one time i had to gate start so it was not a great experience.
As written, 75 has a typo that could be addressed if left unchanged.
Sort of a change of topic, sorry; but rule 84 is sort of also a late start rule, written specifically for castrol and seems to state or assume someone will be in the hot pits doing inspections. Just saying this rule could also be part of a late to start conversation, particularly if we aim to have all rules work at any track.
off to work on the snowmobile now...
