Races will be started with the 3/4 going first, followed three minutes later by the E/1/2 cats. The onus shall remain with the group being overtaken to stay over to the side of the track, follow Commissaires car and drop back. Anyone using the overtaking group to gain an advantage be that a 3rd or 4th cat rider taking advantage as the E/1/2 group overtakes or indeed an E/1/2 doing the same if the 3/4 group overtake the E/1/2 group will be warned to drop back to their respective race. Continued infringement will ultimately lead to disqualification from the event. If one race overtakes the other and then subsequently slows down the re-overtaking should take place on the opposite side of the track where possible.
