VI. RUNNING OF THE EVENT

6.1 Course Familiarization:  Once a driver has completed Registration, they have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Empire Hill Climb Auto Road as long as the Auto Road is open to the public. Any vehicle may be used for this purpose that meets the criteria of the Auto Road when it’s open to the public, including race vehicles, as long as the driver maintains the speed limit of 25 miles per hour and does NOT impede the flow of traffic - failure to maintain the speed limit and/or the stopping of traffic will result in the driver being disqualified from the event.  Be mindful this is a PUBLIC ROAD, with TWO WAY TRAFFIC. 

6.2 Race Day Drivers Meeting:  A mandatory driver’s meeting for all competitors will take place with the Chief Steward prior to Opening Ceremonies in front of the town hall building located on Front Street at 9:00 AM.

6.3 Number of runs:  PAY ATTENTION! BE CONSIDERATE!  The Empire Hill Climb committee is committed to giving everyone the greatest number of runs up the hill as possible during our road closure period.  Expectation with 30 cars is for every competitor to get at least 6 runs up the hill including one practice and five timed runs.  We will continue to run beyond five timed runs until 6:00 PM, with a maximum of 6 timed runs.  If there is still time permitting, free fun runs for any entrant up the hill until 6:00 PM.  The more everyone pays attention, and cooperates during the day, the more runs up the hill everyone will get.

6.4 Scoring:  Each competitor’s single fastest run of the day will be the time scored.  Awards will be given for first place in each class, and fastest run of the day overall. 

6.5 Alcohol & Drugs:  The consumption or use of alcohol and/or drugs by competitors or crew members during the hours of and prior to practice or competition is strictly prohibited. If a competitor or crew member is found to be using any controlled substance during the hours of practice or competition, the team’s entry will be immediately disqualified.

The consumption of alcohol or drugs in the Paddock area by anyone during the hours of practice or competition is strictly prohibited. Failure to abide by this rule will lead to immediate disqualification.
