MOTO PARK AND SERVICE AREA
There is no available motorcycle park; storage will be individual.

SERVICE AREA
Any intervention/repair on the motorcycle will be done only under a waterproof tarpaulin with a minimum size of 200x100cm; In the service area, the organizer will provide competitors with a container for collecting liquids (oil, brake fluid, clutch fluid, antifreeze, etc.). Throwing these liquids at random or in places other than those designated is strictly prohibited; Test rides with motorcycles are not allowed in the service area.

CONTEST NUMBERS
Competition numbers are assigned by the organizer in chronological order of registrations. Competition numbers cannot be changed during the competition. It is forbidden to start each day without the competition numbers given by the organizer attached to the motorcycle. Competitors are not allowed to make their own competition numbers. In case of damage to the competition number, the competitor will request the organizer (competition secretary) to assign another copy of the competition number. Class A: numbers 1-50 Class B: numbers 100-199 Class C: numbers 200-299 Veterans class: numbers 300-350 Girls class: numbers 400-420

START
On the first day, competitors will start in the order of their competition numbers, which will be allocated after registration and payment confirmation. The results of the ranking on day 1 – Prologue will be displayed on the notice board in the Secretariat area. The starting order on the second day of the route will be determined by the final ranking of day 1 – Prologue. The final ranking after day 2 (day 1 time + day 2 time) will represent the starting order for day 3.

REFUELING
Refueling locations will be clearly marked. More information about refueling and refueling points will be presented during the briefing. Refueling with the engine running is mandatory. Smoking is strictly prohibited at refueling points. The organizer will provide competitors with fuel from refueling points, with the following mentions:
• Fuel for day 1 – Prologue is the responsibility and expense of each competitor;
• each competitor will start the second day of the competition with a full tank of fuel at their own expense;
• the organizer will provide, at its own expense, fuel from refueling points up to a maximum of 5 liters of fuel per competitor per day of the competition (excluding the prologue);
• competitors with 2-stroke motorcycles will receive fuel from refueling points mixed with special oil for this purpose, the mixing ratio being 1:50;
• the mixing oil for 2-stroke motorcycles is of the Full Synthetic type;
• the fuel offered by the organizer is RON95 gasoline.

CHECKPOINTS (CP) and other information related to the conduct of the competition
CPs are checkpoints for competitors that will be marked and very well signaled on the route. Each CP will have a minimum of 2 arbitrators. It is mandatory for each competitor to pass through all CPs, and also to stop at CP to be recorded by the arbitrators. It is very important for the safety of each competitor that the organizer knows exactly where on the route the competitor has reached, a thing possible by checking the lists of passage through CPs. Witness markers will also be used for each pilot through CP. We will announce later the chosen version (either a card that will be composted by arbitrators in each CP, or ribbons of different colors attached to the handlebar at the passage through CP, or other variants).

Any irregularity encountered on the route, an injured competitor, or technical problems for a competitor, must be immediately reported to the arbitrators at the first/closest CP. If the accident is more serious, contact the Competition Director immediately via mobile phone, at one of the emergency numbers provided, to provide all the data that will help recover the injured person (approximate location on the route, GPS coordinates if possible, nature and severity of the accident). In case you do not have a signal in that location, provide the data to another competitor (do not leave the injured one alone !!!) who will transmit them from the first point where he will have a signal and will be able to use the mobile phone (usually in higher areas of the route there is a signal, only in valleys it is missing). The time spent to provide assistance will be deducted from the total time at the end of the day. Due to this fact, all competitors are required to have a charged mobile phone with them and from which calls can be made, as long as you are on the route. Also, as a safety measure, each participant is required to have a functional flashlight. Any competitor who reaches CP after the route is closed will no longer be able to continue and must return to the camp on the route indicated by the arbitrators or together with them. Failure to do so leads to disqualification of the competitor.

Checkpoints on the route will be monitored with a LIVE tracking system that will make the race more fair and transparent.

GPS
Garmin GPS devices are mandatory for all competitors in all classes. Any dispute will only be accepted with the attached Garmin GPS recording. Garmin GPS devices can also be rented from the organizer at a price of 25 EUR for the duration of the event. The number of devices is limited, so please contact us as soon as possible at ditrocksrace@gmail.com for a reservation.

ABANDONMENT
In case of abandonment, it is mandatory for the competitor in question to announce this as soon as possible, either by phone or directly to the Competition Director. If not announced and search and rescue actions are undertaken, the cost of these will be borne by the competitor.

CODE OF DISCIPLINE AND ARBITRATION
Sanctions are:
• warning;
• time penalty;
• disqualification for the respective day;
• elimination from the competition.
Sanctions are established by the Competition Director, on the proposal of officials, after prior consultation with the point of view of the athlete in question and any witnesses. The decisions of the Competition Director can be contested in front of the competition jury. In case of elimination from the competition, the participation fee will not be refunded.

DISPUTES
Any disputes must be submitted in writing to the competition secretariat together with the GPS recording of the route within a maximum of 30 minutes from the display of the provisional results. When filing a dispute, the appellant will pay a fee of 130 EUR (equivalent in RON) which will be refunded only if the appeal is accepted.

RANKING
The competition time calculation formula is: prologue qualification time + day 2 time + day 3 time + any penalties = final time. The competitor who completes the entire competition route (day 1, day 2, and day 3), passing correctly through each checkpoint (or missing the maximum allowed number of checkpoints), in the shortest period of time, is the winner of the competition. A winner will be determined for each participation category. In case of events not attributable to the organizer (e.g., adverse weather conditions), the ranking will be established considering the time from the last Timed Check Point (Check Point) through which at least 30% of the total number of competitors have passed.

TIME PENALTIES AND DISQUALIFICATIONS
Day 1 – PROLOGUE
• non-presentation at the prologue entails a penalty of 1 hour.
• non-presentation in the prologue final for those who qualified entails a penalty of 30 minutes. Day 2-3 The following cases are considered missing a checkpoint:
• non-presentation of a competitor at a checkpoint;
• the arrival of a competitor at a checkpoint from a direction other than the normal course of the competition or from the route of another class;
• the departure of a competitor from a checkpoint in a direction other than the course or on the route of another class.
Disqualification of a competitor can occur under the following conditions:
• presence on the competition route before the start of the competition;
• refueling with the engine running;
• smoking in the refueling point;
Not stopping at the checkpoint or at any other point on the route if the official from that checkpoint requests it entails a penalty of 1 hour. Missing/avoiding a checkpoint or any other point on the route if the official from that checkpoint requests it entails a penalty of 2 hours.

PARTICIPANTS’ RESPONSIBILITY
Competitors are required to attach all promotional materials provided by the organizer to their motorcycles. The competition route is entirely outside public roads. On public road sections between the Base and Start, between Finish and Base, and on the connection sections between race stages, competitors will move to respect the provisions of the current Traffic Code. The responsibility for the actions of competitors on these sections of public roads belongs entirely to them. Competitors are asked not to leave their equipment or personal belongings unattended; the organizer assumes no responsibility for them. Each competitor participates in the competition at their own risk. Civil and criminal liability for any damage caused to their own person, other competitors, or any property is exclusively the responsibility of the participants. If necessary, the Organizer reserves the right to modify the competition program.
