Braking Area Priority: During the course of a race, the vehicle in the left hand lane shall have the right of way when turning off the track on to the return road. In all cases, any vehicle in the right hand lane cutting across the path of a vehicle in the left hand lane shall be subject to disqualification from the event.
Breakage on Track: Any competitor experiencing a breakage whilst on the racing surface or braking area must move to the side of the track as soon as safely possible to minimise oil or fluid spills, or track damage on the racing line.
Breakages: To assist in the seeding of brackets, the Meeting Director must be notified of any breakages or withdrawals no later than 10 minutes after the end of qualifying. Brackets will not be reseeded.
Burnouts: Static burnouts are not permitted. Holding of vehicles during burnouts is strictly prohibited. No crew person may touch the vehicle at any time after the burnout has commenced unless another crewmember or Official is clearly directing the driver to remain stationary. No vehicle is permitted to cross the start line more than once under power during the burnout.
Bye Runs: Bye runs will be allocated in accordance with the appropriate seeding procedure, as instructed by WADDRA.
Competition Numbers: All race vehicles must display their competition class and numbers as required by AASA/WADDRA/ANDRA Regulations.
Class Rules: WADDRA may conduct events with custom class rules where engine size or tyre size will be the deciding factor of which class the competitor will be placed in. Any interfering with this classification (such as modifying sidewall tyre size) the competitor will be disqualified from the event.
Dial Ins: Dial-ins should be clearly marked on both sides of the vehicle, and may not be altered once the vehicle is in the hands of the Starter. Requirements for the dial-in notification will be advised at the Drivers / Riders Briefing.
Drivers / Riders Briefing: A Drivers / Riders Briefing will be held at the Pit Office at the completion of qualifying. Attendance is compulsory.

Consumption of alcoholic liquor by drivers, passengers or pit crew is forbidden prior to the completion of the meeting in accordance with Schedule 3 of the NCRs. All drivers must have a BAC below 0.01 and no illicit drugs in their system.
All competitors and officials are advised that random drug and alcohol testing may take place during the competition.
Any driver, passenger or crewmember being found to be under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs during the event will be excluded from the event, and further penalties may be imposed in accordance with the NCRs.

Parachutes: Where used, braking parachutes must be deployed by no later than the first speed trap. Failure to comply on more than one occasion may result in disqualification.
Public Relations Release: By entering the Event, the Entrant and Driver agree to make themselves available to any reasonable request of the Promoter during the event for any press or media exposure and approve the use of any television footage or still photographs connected with their participation in the event.
Qualifying: All competitors are required to take part in at least one qualifying session. Competitors not completing a qualifying pass may be seeded at the bottom of the field subject to bracket size. The Starter has the authority to allocate lane use during qualifying.
Return Road: Tender vehicles should proceed to the pickup point along the left side of the return road. All crewmembers should be located inside the tender vehicle. Race vehicles have right of way at all times. If the competitor wishes not to use the return road (i.e. low vehicle) it must be pre-organised with officials that they can return back down the racing surface whilst adhering to Braking Area Priority rules, the competitor must complete a U-turn at the end of the track and proceed to the marked exit lane which is next to the timing under their own power.
Scrutineering: All race vehicles must undergo scrutineering prior to their first qualifying pass. All race vehicles presented for scrutineering must be race ready with all items removed from the boot or pick up bed. All documentation and credentials, driving apparel, leathers, helmets, parachutes and other equipment as required by the ANDRA regulations for the class should be available.
Speed Limit: Return road speed limit is 10 KM/H in all areas apart from the racing surface and braking area.
Starting / Staging: All vehicles must self-start and stage under their own power once directed by the Starter. Once a vehicle has moved from its Staging Lane position, it will be deemed to be in the hands of the Starter. If a competitor has failed to stage within 20 seconds of his or her opponent being permitted to do so, that competitor may be disqualified by the Starter.
No prep / Heads Up Staging: These events use the 7 second rule whilst staging, once the stage light is on in one lane, the competitor in the other lane has 7 seconds to enter stage. The competitor who failed to stage, will be automatically disqualified and the person in stage, will be awarded the win and a green light. The starter will instruct both competitors to do their burnouts then when both have completed and are behind the starting beams they will be at the hands of the timing system’s autostart.
The timing system for No Prep classes will be completely automatic, meaning there is no “starter official pressing the start button”. The tree will cycle automatically once conditions are met, meaning when one full stage light is on, the timing computer will give the other lane up to 7 seconds to enter full stage, then the race will start. Failing to enter stage within 7 seconds will automatically disqualify said lane.
‘Heads up pro tree’ means that all three amber lights will come on at once, instead of cycling through each amber light.
Once race start conditions are met, the amber lights will come on all at once (pro tree) between 1 second and 2.5 seconds; then 0.400 of a second later the green light will come on as usual with pro tree, thus making delay boxes inoperable due to the random delay of the amber lights.
Traction Compound: The use of Traction Compound is permitted, with one crewmember only being permitted in the burnout area. All crewmembers will be under the direction of start line Officials at all times. If the event is no prep, no traction compound is permitted to be used at all.
Traction Control: The use of traction control systems are allowed.
Trailers: Open trailers must be parked in the area provided as soon as the vehicle and equipment are unloaded. Fully enclosed workshop style trailers and purpose built ramp trucks/buses will be permitted into the Pit Area at the Organisers` discretion.
Uniforms / Team Presentation: All racing and tender vehicles must be of neat appearance. The Organisers reserve the right to refuse the participation of any vehicle or crewmember deemed to be of unacceptable standard of presentation.
Warm Up Procedure: At any time a vehicle is running in the Pit Area, AASA regulations covering this area must be observed.
Windows: Windows are to be wound up on all sedan type vehicles whilst racing.
