Rules for Wagner Park Large Scale (1/5 scale) Competition
These rules are to be used as a guideline during the scheduled events at Wagner Park. They are subject to change as needed.
- Driver’s Meeting – All drivers must attend the drivers’ meeting. Racing rules, any deviations of, and event specific rule and procedures will be covered during this meeting.
- General Behavior – Drivers are responsible for their actions and conduct during the event. Please refrain from use of foul language, chronic arguing, aggression or general poor behavior is not acceptable and ruins the event for other drivers. We have a great group of racers who share their passion for the hobby. Let’s keep our races in that spirit.
- Qualifying Sessions – Qualifying sessions are staggered start format. Cars are brought onto the track before the start of the session for warm-up. The race director will announce the start of qualifying. Your 3 fastest consecutive laps determine your qualifying order and driver points awarded.
- Main Races – B Main races are 15 Minutes in length. Winner is bumped up to the A Main. A Mains are 20 minutes. Cars are brought onto the track before the start of the race for warm-up. The race director will announce drivers to grid in order of qualifying in front of the drivers stand. The pole sitter brings the field around slowly. When the last car passes the start-finish line the race director announces the start of the race and passing for position is permitted.
- Stuck Cars, crashes, etc. – If a car is stuck on track the race director will halt the race. A marshal will free the car to continue the session. If the car is visibly damaged, it is removed from the race circuit. If the car is simply stalled, a marshal may try to restart the car. If it does not fire up immediately, the car is removed from the racing circuit. The driver can then leave the drivers stand, work on the car off track and rejoin the session.
- Racing Etiquette – All drivers are expected to race under control. If you constantly spin out and over drive your car, you may be pulled from the session. If there is a faster driver behind you, simply hold your line and allow that driver to pass. Do not hold up faster drivers. If you are a faster driver, it is expected you pass the car in front of you without contact or pushing the car in front of you. In short, race for position at your level and your car’s level of ability.
- Substitute Drivers – No substitute drivers are allowed to compete for another driver.
- Leaving the Drivers Stand – If your car is stuck and there are insufficient marshals. The driver can leave the driver stand after all cars are stopped on track. If the car is visibly damaged, it is removed from the race circuit. If the car is simply stalled, the driver may try to restart the car. If it does not fire up immediately, the car is removed from the racing circuit. The driver can rejoin the race if his car restarts or is repaired.
- Protests – If you believe something happened in a qualifying session or race which is unfair you can submit a protest to the protest coordinator for resolution.
- Penalties – Rough driving or passing under a Caution (Yellow Flag) or Stop (Red Flag) will incur a ten- second or stop-and-go penalty. A second offense may result in disqualification at the discretion of the Race Director. Failure to obey a Red or Yellow Flag will result in disqualification from the race in which the offense occurred.
- Marshals – All racers are responsible to marshal at least one qualifying session or race. Keep in mind we need one marshal on each corner for each session, 4 marshal totals.

- Walkways – Drivers should use walkways on either side of the track to make their way to the Drivers stand when cars are on track (practicing, qualifying, or racing).
- Entering the racing circuit – No one should be on the racing circuit when cars are on track (practicing, qualifying, or racing). The only time a person should go on track is when the field is stopped.
- Brakes – It is expected your car has full functioning brakes and can stop if necessary. It is the driver’s responsibility to test their brakes before each practice, qualifying session, and race. If your car cannot stop effectively do not bring it on the track.
