Rules of Racing
Each governing body has a book of Rules and Regulations.
It is advised that you request these rules at the beginning
of each season. As the years pass, changes are made to these
rule books so it is always advised to keep a current copy
and make sure you are up to date.
The rules for each governing body do vary so be sure make
sure you are up to date with the rules that apply to you.
Here are some basics that you need to know:
