Grand Bayou Race Series (GBRS)
At No Problem Raceway Park
2002 RULES

Recognizing that Road Racing in South Louisiana at NPR is just beginning, the philosophy of the Grand Bayou Race Series (GBRS) is to provide a safe, fun and sustainable venue for anyone interested in road racing to compete with almost ANY type of car. We call it FASS: fun, affordable, safe and sustainable.

Disclaimer: Racing of any form is dangerous and all competitors/participants assume all risks associated with the racing and related activities. While these rules serve to run an orderly event, it cannot be assumed that participation in this type of event carries no risks. These rules are intended as a guide for the conduct for this sport and are in no way are a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator, or others.

Competitors Can Have a Safe and Sustainable Venue for Road Racing

This race series is based on the philosophy that all participants have spent lots of time and money preparing their cars to race. They want to come out, enjoy their cars and the racing, and go home with them and their car undamaged. They want to return to their families and work to race another day. They and we do not want to increase the risk of bodily harm or vehicle damage by reckless or overly aggressive competitors who are not afraid to damage their own car or the cars of others. By setting the Series up in this manner, we hope to make it something sustainable, where you can come out and do this at your level and continue to race for years to come.

By the use of a penalty of reduced racing privileges for wrecking or damaging your or any other person's car, we believe we will help reduce these risks. At the GBRS, the responsibility for conduct goes to the Race Committee, which has the authority to reduce racing privileges "if a driver does not allow racing room in a corner or drives overly aggressively." The Race Committee will remove any offending driver who is driving over-aggressively, "over his head", or causing other drivers to avoid him to avoid incident. Remember the overall goal for each event is fun, safety and ZERO BENT METAL.

Racing and competition is encouraged but a philosophy of co-existence on the track should prevail. For example, while it is the responsibility of the overtaking driver to execute a safe pass, corner workers will be instructed to report drivers appearing to "block" faster cars from passing. The Blue (Passing) Flag will be displayed to drivers who intentionally impede faster cars and ignoring the Blue Flag will result in a Black Flag being displayed to the offending driver. Very unsafe driving will be sufficient cause for drivers to be immediately excluded from further racing and such drivers may forfeit any entry fee paid.

Penalty for Damage or Bad Conduct by Drivers - the 13/13 Rule

As the primary objective of Grand Bayou Club Racing is fun and safety, there will be penalties for damaging anything, cars or otherwise, or behaving in an unsafe manner as judged by the Race Committee.

The "13/13 Rule" is the cornerstone of running safe races and has been widely adopted across the U.S. It states that "Anyone causing damage to a car while either on the track or in the pits during the event will be placed on probation under the 13/13 Rule. If during the 13-month period following the issuance of the 13/13 probation, the driver is found at fault for another infraction under the 13/13 Rule, the driver will be suspended from participating for 13 months. If a person returns after being suspended for 13 months and causes another incident, they may be refused entry in all future events at the discretion of the Chief Steward.

Incidents - Anyone involved in an incident of any kind for which they are found to be at fault, will be excluded from further racing at that event. In incidents involving car to car contact, the Race Committee will determine any drivers at fault and such drivers will be placed in the 13/13 Probation. (Often, fault in a racing accident is shared because neither driver drove to avoid the incident nor allowed sufficient road to the other driver. Drivers are expected that one may have to alter their line to prevent contact and/or damage.) In an incident, it will be up to the Race Committee to determine fault. Time permitting, statements will be taken from corner workers, other drivers observing the actual incident, and drivers involved before a judgement is reached. After a final decision, there is no appeal process.

Vehicle Eligibility

Any vehicle configured for road racing safety requirements is eligible. All modifications not specifically prohibited below are permitted.

Car preparations necessary before being allowed to participate. These preparations are in addition to the safety requirements.

1. Drivers of cars with non-full windshields will be required to wear full-face helmets with shields down any time they are on track.
2. Driver's window must remain open while on course.
3. Sunroofs must remain completely closed. Open cars must have either a full cage, or a roll bar with the top in place. T-tops or targa type tops must be in place.
4. All cars must run with both windows down.
5. Floor mats must be removed
6. All hubcaps must be removed.
7. Lugnuts must be steel, with engagement at least equal to the diameter of the wheel lug studs. (suggested that studs protrude slightly from any open lug nuts)
8. All oil lines on the pressure side of the oil pump must be thread on connections equal to or better than the factory. No slip-on oil lines to oil coolers.
9. Headrests, either as part of the seat, or separate, are required. The headrest must extend above the midpoint of the back of the helmet on the vertical plane of the seatback with the driver in the driving position.
10. All cars must be equipped with a metal firewall separating the driver compartment from the engine compartment capable of preventing the passage of flame and debris.
11. Drivers of water-cooled cars should use minimal anti-freeze in the cooling systems. In case of overheating or accident, glycol makes the track extremely slippery.
12. Tinting of windows is not recommended.
13. Anyone in the hot pits must wear long pants and a minimum of a short sleeve shirt and shoes with a closed toe.
14. No cars nitrous-equipped or carrying nitrous oxide bottles are permitted on course.

Race Classes and Groups

GBRS presently defines its race classes as outlined below. Race Classes may be combined or divided from time to time into Run Groups depending on the schedule and entries for a particular event. GBRS reserves the right to change the Classes and/or Run Groups to provide safe and fair and fun competition.

A driver may participate in multiple classes. An entry fee will apply for each class.

Bracket Classes and Traditional Car Classes

As the series is being started, there may be insufficient numbers of cars within any one class to allow cars to be segregated by class in the traditional method, i.e. by similar car type or power-to-weight ratio. Initially, the Series may simply split the participating cars into Classes ("brackets") based on lap times recorded during Qualifying without regard to car type - Bracket Road Racing.

Classing cars based on lap times will ensure close, competitive racing without having to heavily modify the car. The Bracket Series also eliminates policing illegal car modifications.

The theory to be followed is simple - with no timing devices allowed and no pit or trackside communication to the driver, participants can race and win as long as they don't break out. If a driver exceeds his "bracket" minimum time, set by the Race Committee, he will NOT SCORE A FINISH nor will he earn Series Points. See Breakout Rules.

As Series participation grows, an evolution to more traditional Run Groups and Classifications may be set up.

Sports-Touring Classes - Bracket Racing

All Sports-Touring cars will fall into Classes ("brackets") based on lap times recorded during qualifying. Drivers may do anything they wish with their cars, run any type of racing tire, shocks, etc. Nitrous is not allowed.

No timing devices on the track or in the car during qualifying and racing, or communication by radio or any other means between anyone trackside during qualifying and racing will be allowed. The only times allowed are those kept by timing and scoring. If it is discovered that times have been kept or radioed in during the race or qualifying, the driver will immediately forfeit whatever position they held and are considered cheating. They will also be placed on the 13/13 list. As this is the only way people can cheat in this type of format, it will be strictly enforced.

The S-T ("bracket") Classes will be set by Race Committee following the Qualifying session on the day of the race based on times recorded. The method for setting Classes will generally be as follows:

Starting with the fastest S-T qualifying time, the Race Committee will formulate Classes based on (1) the number of ST cars, (2) the spread of qualifying times and (3) the principal of trying to maximize the closeness of racing and on-track time. To create logical splits closely grouped qualifying times, the spreads of the Classes will generally be the same. Example: ST A spread 7 seconds, ST B spread 8 seconds, ST C 7 seconds.

No car, which has logged a lap time faster than 1:22.00, will be allowed to race in the S-T Class.

Race Committee may set as many as six Classes (Orange A, Red B, Yellow C, Blue D, Green E. and Purple F) which may run separately or combined into Run Groups, as needed.

Orange Class (ST A) - Fastest Bracket

Composed of the fastest S-T cars, starting with the fastest ST qualifier. The ST A Bracket will be set as follows: the fast time, rounded to the second, one full second below the time recorded. Example: a pole time of 1:25.25 will establish Bracket Minimum Time (BMT) of 1:24.00.

Slower Classes will be assigned and posted based on the number of participants as decided by the Race Committee for the day.

The cars running in the above classes may not record any race lap time less than the establish Bracket Minimum Time (BMT). If they turn a faster time than the BMT, they are considered "Breaking Out" and will not score Series Points. Series Points are only awarded during the feature race.

Posting of S-T Classes and Run Groups

Following the last qualifying session, Race Committee will set Classes (and Run Groups if Classes are combined) which will be posted in the paddock for review by racers.

Between the time of posting of Classes (and Run Groups if Classes are combined), and the set time announced over the pubic address system, but not less than 20 minutes before the start of Heat Races, racers may change the Class they will race in by noting the change on a Class Changes. The Race Committee shall have final approval of any such requested Change. No class shall contain less than 5 cars.

Drivers may Choose a run in different Class ("bracket") after Posting of S-T Classes and Run Groups

Competitors may choose to run in a faster or a slower group than posted. If competitors so choose, they will be grided for the Heat and the Feature races at the back of the chosen class, except that Licensed or Provisional Drivers so choosing shall be grided in front of the Novices.

Break Out Rules

Due to race-day weather and variations in track conditions during the event, the Race Committee shall have the sole discretion over Break Out Rules for any Series or race for which Series Points may be awarded.

In general, in order for a competitor to be judged as "Breaking Out" during any Race for which Series Points, such competitor must record a race lap time faster than the BMT. Any competitor judged to have Broken Out will be scored DSQ and will not score Series Points for the race.

Rationale behind this type of classification.
1. It is fairer.
2. It is safer.
3. With no technical specifications, it doesn't take a lot of technical expertise.
4. Many drivers are expected to be Novice Drivers and will be much slower than their cars. Drivers who are not experienced will be grouped with like cars/drivers and will always be able to "find a race" rather than looking in their mirrors to avoid much faster drivers in like cars. It allows inexperienced drivers to actually race. Novices can drive and build their racecraft more comfortably, rather than being forced to go faster in order to keep up with similar cars but more experienced drivers.
5. It keeps the racing close. Close racing will make it will easy for fans or spectators to follow who is leading.
6. All drivers will be able to progress faster by close racing The disqualification of drivers who "break out" of their group will prevent sandbagging during qualifying.
7. Drivers will still be able to keep their cars in the classification of other venues that they already race.
8. All types of cars can participate.

No Radio communication or lap timing during the Sports-Touring (Bracket) events

No car competing in any S-T Class may have any timing device, which may be visible to the driver during on-track events, including stopwatches, wristwatches, or Hot Lap timers. Drivers are prohibited from communicating or being communicated to from other persons in order to relay timing information. Anyone found violating these rules will be considered cheating and will be excluded from other activities and results without refund. Data acquisition for set-up purposes is permissible if the driver cannot view any display device for such equipment.

In the initial season, prior to the adoption of required electronic timing equipment (transponders), competitors may be required to time and score races other than their own race. The Race Committee shall announce at the Drivers Meeting at the start of event such requirements as deemed necessary. The race driver may serve in that capacity.

Traditional Race Classes (Non-bracket racing)

At GBRS events there may be traditional classes of cars. While many participants will run in Sports-Touring Cars ("brackets"), GBRS plans the following traditional car Classes depending on the number of participants: Super Production, Vintage V-8, Camaro Mustang Challenge, Open-Wheel or Formula Class, Exhibition Classes, or any other special Class, especially by prior arrangements with GBRS. Examples of guest classes may be Baby Cup cars, Legend cars, or some Challenge or Marque Races.

All such car-specific classes will be run using normal timing and scoring rules, i.e. will not run as bracket classes.

Camaro Mustang Challenge

Series rules will generally conform to NASA Texas Rules, with the following exception shown in bold below. Refer to the following website for rules: www.nasatx.com. AS THE GRAND BAYOU RACES SERIES DOES NOT ALLOW CAR-TO-CAR CONTACT. THIS RULE SHALL SUPERCEDE ANY SUCH RULE(S) PROMULGATED BY N.A.S.A. TEXAS.

Super Production (SP)

All of the fastest cars at the track on Race Day will run in SP, regardless of configuration (other than open-wheel cars). This Class will include SCCA GT-1 and GT-2 cars and may include high performance vintage cars including Can-Am, World Championship of Makes cars, SCCA Shelby Can-AM, Sports 2000, CSR, DSR and other closed-wheel classes. Any car capable of logging a lap time faster than 1:22.00 will run in SP and will not run in the S-T Classes.

Formula or Open-wheel Cars -

When sufficient entries demand, open-wheel cars will be granted a Run Group. Participants desiring to race open-wheel cars should contact Race Organizers as soon as possible to allow sufficient participation to have a separate Run Group. Open wheel cars are not eligible to participate in the Sports Touring classes.

Vintage V-8 1975 or older A production, B production, A Sedan

All Cars must be prepared to SCCA vintage rules 1972 GCR. Tires - DOT legal, 60 Series on 15 x 8 inch wheels. Tires must have full grooves when purchased new and must have grooves of at least 60% of tire at the time of safety inspection (for example, if full tread depth is 12/64", then all grooves must be a minimum of 7/64" at safety inspection).

Run Groups, Classes and Brackets - Multiple Entries, Single Entry Scores Series Points

Drivers may participate with multiple cars or elect to run the same car in multiple Run Groups, but no Competitor shall be permitted to earn Series Points for more than one entry per day. Drivers must make an election as to the entry to earn Series Points prior to any Heat Race. In the event that an election is not made, the FIRST class competed in shall be conclusively deemed to been elected by that driver. It is the responsibility of drivers running multiple cars or run groups to understand the process for electing which entry will score Series Points and to make the election in the manner prescribed by the Race Committee.

For each single day event, after Qualifying, the driver may select which Run Group(s) they will run in. Drivers may desire to compete in more than one Run Group and earn Series Points, but competitors will be required to elect which Run Group will record Series Points in advance of competition. If a competitor has elected to compete in more than one Run Group, and the Race Committee combines such Run Groups, a refund will be issued to such competitor for the additional fee paid. With the approval of the Race Committee, the competitor may elect to move his faster entry to compete in the next fastest Run Group.

Each different class group will require an additional entry fee. The driver may select which group he will be participating in after the morning warmup session. During the day, each group will have the following track times participation. A 10 to 15 minute warm up, a 15 to 20 minute Qualifying Session, a 15 minute Heat Race and a 20 minute Feature Race. Initially, the Heat Race may be run with a practice start, a race to turn 8, a reforming and then a restart on the second lap.

All starts will be rolling starts. The determination of Run Groups and Brackets will be made by the Race Committee based on Qualifying Times recorded by competitors during the Qualifying Race. In the event that a Competitor fails to record a Representative Qualifying Time, the Race Committee may assign the competitor to a Run Group. Any Competitor failing to record a Representative Qualifying Time and being assigned to a Run Group may request to be placed in a faster Run Group if he so elects. The Race Committee shall have the final control over any Run Group assignment and any protest for Breaking.

Race Committee (RC)

The Race Committee shall be comprised of the Chief Steward, the Chief Corner Marshall and up to Three (3) competitors registered for the Series Meeting. Communications between the Race Committee members need not be face-to-face, but may be conducted in any manner deemed appropriate by the RC.

At each race, all licensed drivers will have their name put into a hat. Provisional and Novice drivers are not eligible to participate as part of the Race Committee. During the first ever race, only Provisional drivers will make up the pool from which to choose the Race Committee. Three of those names will be pulled at the beginning of the day. Two alternates will also be drawn. These 3 people will serve as the Race Committee for the day. The 2 alternates will be available should one or 2 of the Race Committee be involved in an incident. Members of the Race Committee may not pass judgment on an incident they are involved in. An alternate must be used. No licensed drivers are excused from serving on the race committee. If they are involved in an incident and finished for the day, they are still required to stay and serve on the committee until the finish of competition for the day.

The duties of the Race Committee shall be to rule on incidents, assigning fault for those incidents and removing people who are judged to be at fault, and assign Classes, BMT and run groups. Even prior to an incident, the race Committee may by unanimous vote remove any racer deemed to be extremely dangerous.

The Race Committee shall use all evidence available to them to make decisions, in-car camera data, corner worker reports, driver statements, and race control reports. Input from other drivers in the same group should be obtained if available. Input from spectators shall be disregarded.

The Race Committee along with the driver(s) involved and any video available must meet at Race Control, immediately following the end of the race. Radio communication is permissible for obtaining corner worker input. If necessary, time may be allowed to pick up incident report forms from the corner station before the next run group begins. If one of the Race Committee is in the next run group, The group will either be held, or that member will interview those involved after the session. (Holding the run group will further instill the importance of everyone driving safely.)

Determinations of Fault in Incidents involving Damage

In incidents involving damage to only one car, that driver will be automatically sanctioned, and the Race Committee only needs to inform the driver. The only incident in which damage may occur and not have a sanction invoked is when a spoiler makes excessive contact with the ground or the racetrack itself, causing damage to the spoiler. In multiple car incidents, all drivers involved will be sanctioned, unless the Race Committee unanimously agrees that less than all drivers were entirely at fault. Similarly, by unanimous agreement, the Race Committee may find a driver in a single car incident not at fault due to situations beyond his/her control. If by unanimous decision, the Race Committee may find a driver sufficiently in violation of Rules in the discretion of the RC, the Race Committee may Santen the driver by excluding the driver from further competition for the day/weekend and/or asking the driver to "put the car on the trailer", or asking the driver to leave the premises.

Cheating

If, in the unanimous opinion of the Race Committee, a driver is found to have used a radio or timing device during any Bracket Class session, the Race Committee must invoke the 13/13 Rule, either as probation for 13 months or a prohibition from racing for 13 months.

As the times may be recorded by random assigning of drivers/crew to cars, there will be no opportunity for protesting if someone receives a break out. If there is a gross discrepancy, the race committee will review it and make a judgment.

Setting S-T Classes and BMT's

Race Committee shall choose the Classes based on a minimum of five participants in a class. Whole second intervals should denote the BMT for each class. In setting Class S-T A, The ST A BMT will be set as follows: the fast time, rounded to the second, one full second below the time recorded, in no case shall the S-T A BMT be less than 1:22.00. Example: a pole time of 1:25.25 will establish Bracket Minimum Time (BMT) of 1:24.00.
