** Important Information **
The use of tear-offs is allowed at this club under the conditions imposed by the Environmental Plan supplied by the club and kept on file by MNSW. This exemption may be rescinded at any time by MNSW, or any approved track inspector or event Steward who believes the Environmental Plan is not being complied with.
The club is not compelled to allow tear-offs at all events, and will maintain the right to operate events either with our without the exemption at our discretion.
Each club has to submit their own Environmental Plan and may vary from club to club. Please familiarise yourself with Maitland DMCC agreement and conditions.
Several garbage bins and skip bins will be placed throughout the pit area, wash bay and car park area for riders to dispose of used tear-offs. A dedicated bin will be placed at the end of the exit chute for riders to dispose of their tear-offs after each race. Garbage bags will also be available at sign on for participants to secure to their pit area.
Information regarding the exemption of tear-offs and the correct disposal of tear-offs will be outlined in the Supplementary Regulations during the sign on process through Ridernet. All riders, parents and marshals will be reminded during Riders Brief their responsibility of disposing of tear-offs in an appropriate manner and the importance of doing so. There will also be continual announcements throughout the day over the loud speaker to pick up and dispose of any tear-offs that may be lying around the pit area, carpark, wash bay and track. Signs will also be on display and information printed on the reverse of each race order to remind participants of the correct disposal of tear-offs.
Any rider caught deliberately dropping tear-offs in the pit area, carpark and wash bay will be given the chance to dispose of the used tear-off and formally warned. If the participant is seen to be miss using tear-offs again that participant will be banned from using tear-offs at this club and fined $50.
Tear-offs are still banned, however we have been given the opportunity to be able to use tear-offs at this club where roll-offs are not a practical option. To ensure being able to use tear-offs in the future we all need to be responsible for the appropriate disposal of tear-offs by preventing them from contaminating our waterways and negatively impacting our environment. It is important that we take the privilege of use of tear-offs seriously. If we cannot prove to be using tear-offs appropriately the exemption here at Maitland District Motorcycle Club will be revoked and the ban will be enforced in the future.
We thank you in advance for your co-operation. Happy racing…
