TRACK RULES

Track driving is different to road driving and therefore different rules apply. Greystone GT trackdays are designed to offer you a safe environment in which to enjoy your vehicle to its full potential. In order to achieve this it is essential that all drivers comply with the following rules which will also be provided during the Drivers Briefing on the morning of the events.

  • Overtake only on the left-hand side
  • Overtake only once the car in front has signalled for you to pass. If in doubt, wait until the next safe opportunity

Flag Signals

When you are on track, the safety Marshals will communicate with you by using a selection of flag signals. It is essential that you understand and adhere to these signals as this is the only method by which they can contact you. At some circuits the Marshals will use flashing lights instead of flags.

Yellow Flag

Danger ahead. Slow down and be prepared to stop. No overtaking

Green Flag

Track ahead clear

Blue Flag

A faster car wants to overtake you. When safe, and only on a straight, allow them to pass on your left hand side

Red Flag

The session has been stopped due to an incident. Slow down and be prepared to stop. No overtaking. Return to the pits at the next opportunity

BlaCK Flag

Report to the Senior Instructor. Slow down and return to the pits at the next opportunity

Chequered Flag

End of session. Slow down and return to pits at the next opportunity. The chequered flag will be displayed before lunch and at the end of the day. Please note that circuits tend to show the chequered flag five minutes before the published session finish time as it takes a several minutes for vehicles to return to the pits
