Timekeeping

Lap counting and timing will follow IFMAR General Rules(1.16)

Measurement software uses the spark2. About the spark2, development from the beginning, we have been a suggestion and advice to Mylaps. We know everything about the software.  And also we have been using for many years for Japan Nationals. We are planning the RC Timing to backup. During the race, we use time management software which developed by JMRCA and spark2 at the same time.

Controlled Fuel

Administration and Distribution of Controlled Fuel

○  Administration of Fuel

All fuels in their necessary quantities will be brought in at the venue in 4L production cans as sold in market (and not of unique quality specifically formulated for the event) prior to the event, which will be administered by the organizer.

All fuels then will be repackaged into a total of 60 smaller bottles, and grouped into 10 bottles each to be handed out for pit crews, for drivers of the immediately following heat and for refills.

○  Distribution of Fuel

Drivers are given their own choice of fuels. Fuel bottles will be handed out to pit crews upon entering the pit area (where one-way traffic is enforced) and will be collected by the organizer after the race for refilling.

In case of fuel supply shortage, additional fuels may be brought in in the same administration manner as described in the previous section above under IFMAR’s supervision.
