Updated Pit Rules
DTKC has pit rules on vehicles and trailers in the pits.
Rules that have been in place for a couple of years now but have never been enforced. Events in recent weeks have necessitated DTKC enforcing the following.
Trailers are NOT permitted to be left in the pit area during race meetings. You may enter the pits with your trailer, unload then remove both your vehicle and trailer from the pits. This must be done before 7.30 am on race days, gates will now be locked until the completion of the last race. The only exception to this are Dealer Trailers, whilst allowed to be in the pit area during race meetings they too will be locked in during the race meeting. No vehicle is allowed back into the pits until last kart has left the track.
Exits in case of emergency are through the smaller entry at the southern end and the gate adjacent the canteen on the northern side. An Emergency exit plan will be posted for all to see.
A pit plan and allocation sheet has been put together and is posted at the club for all to see. Allowing visiting competitors to find a vacant bay without claiming an allocated bay. This plan will also allow competitors to move bays if they wish by looking at the plan then requesting to be moved. Preference will be given to current long time bay holders.
