Spectators

Baja SAE Spectator and Dynamic Event Policy

In 2013, a new Spectator and Dynamic Event Policy went into effect. These policies may affect your strategy for the Endurance event. Please read this notice carefully.

Spectators - If you are watching a dynamic event, then you are a spectator. Only drivers and the event volunteers are allowed on the course during dynamic events. Team members who are watching the event are spectators.

Spectator Areas - Spectators must remain in the designated spectator areas. This includes all team members who are watching the event. If you are not inside a designated spectator area then assume you are in a prohibited area.

Warning - Any spectator found inside a course boundary may be asked to leave the event.

Repairs Only in the Pits/Paddocks - Repairs may only be done in your pit/paddock. No repairs are permitted on any dynamic event course, staging area or the practice track. Do not have tools in, or with, your car.

Hands Only - Any adjustment/repair that requires a tool must be done in your pit.

Dynamic Event Staging: Driver and Escort - Only the driver and one escort are allowed in the dynamic event staging areas. Note - Dynamic event access is dependent on the topography and configuration of individual courses and may be revised. You must follow the restrictions of the event in which you are participating.

Dynamic Courses: Driver Only - Only drivers and course marshals are allowed on the dynamic event courses.

No Work on Course - If your car becomes disabled during a dynamic event - including Endurance - it must be returned to the pits for repairs. No on-course repairs during any event.

Recovery Procedure - (1) Disabled vehicles will be pushed off course by the course marshals. (2) The marshal will notify the recovery crew. (3) Your car will be towed to your pit/paddock as soon as a recovery crew becomes available. Please do not badger the recovery crews; they will work as quickly as practical.
