A clock with the official time along with a set of flip cards must be installed at the entrance/exit of the Parc Fermé.


At the beginning of each day’s run, the starting signal will be given at the exact time a rider is due to start. Within one minute after the starting signal has been given, the rider must have started his engine at the starting line and crossed another line, 20 metres from the starting line, using the power of the engine.

If a rider is not on the starting line when the signal to start is given, he will not be penalized as long as he brings his motorcycle to the starting line, starts the engine, and crosses the second line within one minute after the signal for his start was given. Riders arriving more than one minute late at the starting line will be penalized 1 minute per begun minute of delay. The minute in which the riders arrive at the start line will be considered as the new start time and before the minute expires, they must observe the start procedure.

Riders more than 60 minutes late coming to the start line will be classified as retired and not allowed to start.


All motorcycles must be started by the kick-start or other starting devices, mechanical or electrical. No assistance is allowed on the starting line. Should the engine stop before the motorcycle has crossed the second line, the rider has to restart it and cross the second line within one minute after the signal to start was given, in order not to be penalized. A rider not crossing the 20 metre line within one minute after his starting signal has been given will be penalized by 60 seconds.

A rider who has been penalized for not starting his engine and crossing the 20 metre line within one minute may then start his motorcycle any way he desires, but must cross the starting line before proceeding on the route.

A rider who does not succeed in starting his machine or whose machine stops in the area between the starting line and the 20 metre line must not return to the starting area. He must push his motorcycle in the driving direction and cross the 20 metre line in order not to hinder other participants.
