LeMans Start Procedure
A LeMans start is a standing start in which the competitors are required to run across the track, mount their machines which are held by a member of their team and race. It is an exciting way to start a race and it’s use in any Endurance event is at the discretion of the Race Director.
- Grid order will be determined by category size order: Heavyweight (nearest start/finish line) / Middleweight / Lightweight (furthest from start/finish)
- Teams will be assigned a numbered stall designated on the race control side of the wall (8-10 feet spacing).
- Machines must be angled at 45 degrees to ensure safest possible launch.
- Team personnel assigned to hold the machine will do so unassisted by a rear stand or any other mechanism. Closed shoes are required by the “holder”.
- Engines are not running. It is the duty of the starting rider to start the engine.
- The rider starting the race must be positioned directly across from their team’s assigned stall with boot heel touching the opposite wall.
- The race begins when signaled by the starter. The starting rider “sprints” across the track, mounts their machine, starts the engine and proceeds.
- After the rider has mounted the machine the holder must immediately exit the live track. Push starting a stalled machine is strictly prohibited. The “holder” is NOT allowed to move into the live track to assist the rider in any way. The “holder” simply holds and releases the rider. The rider in control of the machine is responsible for adhering to established grid safety procedures if a stall or other mechanical issue occurs.
