          6. Survival equipment

          For safety reasons competitors must carry with them on their vehicles the following material:

          • 1 GPS per competitor
          • 1 lighter
          • 1 GSM mobile phone in waterproof packaging (able to phone out and receive calls)  Please ensure phone is fully charged every morning.
               Tips, Carry an external battery unit to ensure you will be able to stay in contact if a time consuming motorcycle breakdown rescue is required and to ensure you can stay in contact with the HQ rescue team.
            Switch of battery consuming apps and ''Social media'' to preserve battery life.  
          • 1 torch (flashlight)
          • 6 smoke rocket-flares or 2 red hand-held smoke flares
          • 1 compass
          • 1 distress mirror
          • 1 Litre of water
          • 1 foil survival blanket
          • 1 wind and waterproof jacket
          • 1 pencil + contact number + first aid form
          • 1 spare spark plug (If not fuel injection)
          • 1 tool set for basic repairing
          • 1 motorcycle tube or repairing set, if no mousse is fitted
          • 1 set of spare batteries for GPS
          • helmet

          The instructions for the various items of safety equipment must be respected and competitors will be tested on their knowledge. A helicopter, off-road vehicles, off-road motorcycles with emergency medical aid-teams, as well as ambulances offers their services to each competitor during the whole event. At previous editions the rescue teams arrived in about 25 minutes at the accident site, but due to different terrain and weather conditions, a maximum intervention time of 2,5 hours can be guaranteed.

          • In the event of a medical evacuation the helicopter rescue cost will have to be covered by competitors. The cost of helicopter flying time is 1300 euro per hour.

          We ask competitors to obtain insurance cover for Medivac flight transportation back to their own country. This insurance cover can often be provided by the Motorcycle governing body (federation) of the country you come from.

          • Controls will be made at the 'Motorcycle security park' & 'off-road start' to ensure that competitors are carrying ALL rescue equipment requested. There is a 30 minute time penalty and a 150 euro fine for failure to carry this essential equipment.

          7. Start and race-course, generally

          • All competitors will get information on the exact starting procedure in the competitor & service crew briefing(s) on Monday 24 July 2017.
          • The starting-grid, the starting list and interval formation will be announced after the competitors briefing on the evening before each race day and on the website and Romaniacs app. 
          • Because of the exposed routing, each competitor must treat contacts with other competitors (overtaking), carefully and respectfully.
            Overtaking within checkpoints flags is not allowed.
          • Checkpoints(CP) are timing points (competitors passage time is recorded) and are clearly indicated on the track.
          • The GPS recorded track of the competitor may be taken in consideration in the resolution of a protest or for judging cases of penalty or disqualification.

          • Technical defect stopped competitor - Motorcycle & competitor rescue
            phone the Red Bull Romaniacs motorcycle rescue team  0040 ??? ??? ???

            Assisting a medically injured competitor
          • Any conspicuous events during the race, regarding the competitors, such as evidently injured competitors, MUST be announced to the Red Bull Romaniacs Rescue team using the phone number(s) 0040 731 270 884 or 0040 751 869 322. 

            In the case of an medically injured competitor, the first competitor who finds an injured competitor 'MUST' HELP

            An injured competitor should never be left alone!!
            If it is not possible to contact the Rescue team due to no phone signal, then the ''First Aid medical assistance form' with all details filled in should be handed to another competitor.  Ask them to phone the Rescue team where phone coverage is available and provide the details on the ''First Aid medical assistance form''.  In general there is GSM signal on most of the peaks and ridges but in some valleys there is no phone coverage.

            Assisting Competitor(s) can hand-in the completed ''First Aid medical assistance form'' immediately after leaving the race track'' at the offroad finish or at the Race Directors Headquarter office on the second floor of the Ramada hotel in Sibiu.

            Competitors who assist a medically injured competitor can be given a ''calculated riding'' time so that their results are not affected by the time taken providing assistance until the Red Bull Romaniacs rescue team arrives.
            The decision on what time to provide back to a competitor(s) who assisted a medically injured competitor is calculated by Race Director/Race Jury.
          • Remember:- it will always be worth helping!

          8. Valuation

          • The organizers publish the “maximum riding time limit” for the next offroad day at the competitors briefing, it includes the mandatory stop time at the Service point and includes time needed if there is ''timed liaison' on the track.
          • The riding time of a competitor is calculated by adding the actual riding time on the track plus given time penalties. (see section 9.00 Rules and penalties)
          • The sum of the total amount of time of each stage (start to finish) is valuated.

          • The winner is the competitor who achieves the lowest riding time.

          • The organizer has the right to disqualify competitors in case of unfair behaviour or in the case of course fouls.
          • If a competitors riding time means they will not reach the finish(maximum riding time) they will be asked to leave the race track at a checkpoint or tank point and directed back to the finish. (the competitor has been timebarred)
          • If a competitor ‘’leaves the race track’’ at a checkpoint before the finish they must follow instructions provided at the checkpoint. The competitor MUST present their motorcycle and dis-mount and hand-in their GPS at the ''Offroad finish GPS FLAG" or at the ''Paddock Finish GPS FLAG" as soon as possible.
          • After 19:00 on ‘’offroad days’’ any competitor who has not handed in their GPS will NOT be allowed to compete the following offroad day.
          •  If the event organiser or Race Director decides that a section of the course has become impassable due to weather conditions, queuing or other factors outside his control, or if the estimated "maximum days riding time" is no longer achievable then the organisation has the right to remove time taken between checkpoints or finish the race earlier and adjust the results accordingly.
          • Our guarantee is that at least 40% of competitors each day will be finishers in the results.

          9. Rules and Penalties

          9.1 At Motorcycle Inspection

          • All Survival equipment must be available for examination.

          Failure to produce working navigation/phone/safety equipment at the motorcycle inspection or at any time when requested by organizing officials during the event will result in time and monetary penalties or disqualification from the competition.

          At the Registration

          • A working GPS must be demonstrated.
          • The mobile phone you will use during the event in the event of an accident or a needed motorcycle rescue must be shown working.
          • It is the responsibility of competitors to provide help to enable their motorcycles and themselves to be recovered from an offroad location where a motorcycle breakdown may occur.
            This recovery should only be performed with the assistance of the Red Bull Romaniacs rescue team to ensure any recovery vehicles are not traveling against the competitor course.
          • Please bring contact name(s) and phone number(s) if you have a rented motorcycle or rented a motorcycle service package.  These details are collected and will be used to contact these companies to assist you and your motorcycle recovery if needed.
          • For an event fee of 50 Euro, paid while registering online for the event or at the ''Rescue team desk'' during event Registration in Sibu we can provide a motorcycle rescue service for this fixed amount, regardless of how long it may take to rescue you and your motorcycle.
