The Tatts Finke Desert Race for bikes is run in accordance with the MA GCR's together with the Supp Regs. Competitors must be familiar with these rules.
Registration, Scrutineering & Prologue
All competitors will be required to attend registration in the week before the race (Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday), scrutineering on Friday afternoon and the Prologue on Saturday - see Supp Regs for details. Race days are Sunday 7th and Monday 8th June.
Self Scrutineering forms will be distributed to competitors in their competitor pack at registration. They must be completed and presented at Scrutineering Night (Friday). A provisional Self Scrutineering Form is available.
Competitors who have opted out of self scrutineering on their entry form can use the demo self scrutineering form as a guide as they will be subject to the same scrutineering requirements by scrutineers. They will also receive a self-scrutineering form in their pack which they should bring to scrutineering but it will be completed and signed off by an official scrutineer.
