Riders may be chosen by the use of ride by sound tests or at random by the Clerk of the Course.
Should a machine become excessively noisy during a practice or racing session in the opinion of the Clerk of the Course, a board displaying “Noise” together with the offender’s number shall be shown to the rider in question at an appropriate place on the circuit. Once passing the board the rider has two laps in which to enter the work area and effect repairs. i.e. the rider may only pass the board on two occasions.

Any rider refusing to have an engine measured or failing the test will result in the loss of all British Championship points.

The organisers and timekeepers will take no responsibility for the results of riders who fail to fit a transponder or charged transponder to their machine.
