    Default The Reason I Asked!

    Outboard Drag insurance is included in Stock Outboard's fees. If we started at turn 3 and raced toward turn one, I think there is plenty of room for 800 feet. I thought they raced for 1,000 feet.

    You have a great idea. I suggest you try running this course using MUD ENGINES. Those guys could actually start on the beach and run up the other side for the finish. Nobody would get their feet wet!.

    We shortened the drag course length in Canada to get a better insurance rate. Drag insurance rates are less than Stock Outboard up here.

    Hey Ron, the video mentions a staggered start, but it was lack of knowledge by the TV crew and poor camera angle giving the illusion of staggered start. There is no handicaping at this point.

    I will email you the 2011 rules.

    Actually, here they are:

    2011 OUTBOARD DRAG RULES
    The General Racing Rules will prevail over the Outboard Drag rules in any conflict or
    where a situation is unclear.
    This category is under demonstration status and during this period, rules and regulations
    may be changed or revised at any time prior to or during an event in order to promote
    safety and or fair competition of the sport by the Race Committee.
    RULE 1 • CONTESTANT’S ELIGIBILITY
    (1-1) To be eligible to compete in Drag races sanctioned by the CBF, an individual:
    A. Must be a full racing member of CBF in good standing. This applies to every
    person in a boat during competition or participation.
    B. Must register with CBF National Headquarters, which will provide the member with
    a membership card showing the categories for which he or she is registered.
    C. Must register their equipment with the Race Committee on an entry blank provided
    for this purpose.
    D. Must also belong to a club which is a current member of the CBF.
    RULE 2 • RACE ENTRIES
    (2-1) Filing false or incorrect information on entry blanks shall be sufficient cause for
    suspension of owner and driver for one year from all racing as provided in the Bylaws
    of the Federation. However, serial numbers are unnecessary and will not be
    cause for disqualification.
    (2-2) The driver, by entering the race, guarantees compliance with all rules of the
    organization by crew, equipment and themselves.
    RULE 3 • GENERAL RULES
    (3-1) Any driver who races a motor or hull or outfit which does not meet with
    specifications as quoted in these rules will be disqualified and warned. A second
    disqualification for the use of illegal equipment within a period of six months will
    result in automatic suspension of the driver for a period of six months from the
    date of the second disqualification.
    (3-2) A boat shall be disqualified which takes on fuel, supplies, equipment, or articles
    or material of any description before crossing the finish line without receiving in
    advance the consent of the Race Committee. Such minor repairs will be allowed if the
    participant does not interfere or delay the normal process of the race per the Race
    Committee. Minor repairs include: tightening of loose external nuts and bolts and
    the repair or replacement of propellers, steering system, throttle cable, shift
    cable, engine trim, engine tilt system, engine lift system, ignition system
    components, fuel lines, fuel filters, fuel pumps, carburetor jets, safety switch
    system, electric starting system components, and any other parts not covered by
    post-race inspection or technical rule requirements for that particular class. At
    the option of the race director, any part of the outboard motor may be changed under
    the notification and control of the Motor Inspector.
    (3-3) Owners or drivers are to fasten their assigned number to each side of their boat in
    such a manner that the number is readily visible by the officials. Numbers must
    remain intact throughout the race. Numbers shall be a minimum of 4” tall and of
    contrasting color. Numbers will be between 2 and 999 and will be assigned by CBF.
    Requests for special numbers will be honoured on a first come, first served basis by
    CBF.
    (3-4) Race officials may not use the official videotapes to assist in decision making
    except for starts and finishes. The use of other videotapes is not permissible in an
    appeal.
    (3-5) Drag races will be double elimination. Points will not be awarded unless a minimum
    of three boats start the race.
    RULE 4 • RACE COMMITTEE MANAGEMENT
    (4-1) Failure of the Race Committee, judges or any other official, directly or indirectly
    connected with the handling of a race, to carry out any provision of the rules or
    regulations, shall have no bearing whatsoever on the rights of any contestant or
    upon a contestant’s duty to obey all rules.
    (4-2) Should any boat or owner commit a breach of these rules which is of a minor or
    technical nature and, in the judgment of the Race Committee, has had no direct
    effect on the relative position of the boats at the finish line, said Committee
    shall have power to decide whether or not such boat shall be disqualified. The
    referee shall record a minor infraction on a member’s card whenever the member has
    defied the rule book. After the second such infraction is recorded within a six
    month period, that driver shall be disqualified from that heat and all other heats
    of that day’s race. (A minor infraction is any infraction of the rules that does not
    in any way enhance the performance or finish of the boat or jeopardize the safety of
    the event.)
    (4-5) Race Reports: The Drag Referee or Drag Scorer shall report results to CBF Head
    Office with a method bearing a date mark not later than fifteen (15) days after the
    final day of competition in the regatta. Material received after this will not be
    considered as eligible for championship tabulation or record claims unless the Drag
    Racing Representative shall see fit in their judgment to extend the time.
    RULE 5 • DRIVERS’ MEETING
    (5-1) The Referee must choose at least one Drag driver’s representative. In case a driver
    cannot attend a Drivers’ Meeting because of extenuating circumstances, it shall be
    the privilege of the Race Committee to permit the driver to be excused, have a
    private meeting and possibly be subject to a maximum penalty of $100.00.
    (5-2) It will also be the duty of the Race Committee to inform drivers where to congregate
    upon completion of a heat. The Race Committee shall also have a meeting for all
    patrol boat personnel.
    RULE 6 • SUPERVISION-DISCIPLINE
    (6-1) Racing for Drag classes shall be conducted under the supervision of the Outboard
    Racing Commission. The decisions of this Commission shall be final in all matters
    pertaining to the administration and interpretation of the rules for these classes.
    This Commission shall serve as an appeal board for owners, drivers, referees,
    inspectors and race committee.
    (6-2) Should it come to the attention of the Referee or any member of the Outboard Racing
    Commission that any owner, driver, contestant or assistant of these, has violated
    any of these racing rules, which violation in the opinion of said Commissioner is of
    major importance or contrary to the best interests of power boat racing, has acted
    in an unsportsmanlike manner in connection with any racing event or whose conduct is
    unbecoming a gentleman, then the commissioner may disqualify, place on probation or
    suspend the said person or persons. Such probation or suspension shall be considered
    temporary, but in effect until such time as the matter shall have been reviewed by
    the CBF Board of Directors.
    RULE 7 • TRACK
    (7-1) All races shall be a maximum of 800’ in length and consist of at least two lanes.
    (7-2) Lanes shall consist of as a minimum, a start buoy, 1 mid track buoy and finish line
    buoy.
    RULE 8 • BUOYS AND PENALTIES
    (8-1) Contestants who fail to stay within the proper buoys shall be disqualified for that
    run.
    (8-2) Any boat that fouls (damages or dislodges) a buoy, forces another boat to foul a
    buoy or other obstruction, or violates in any other way the rules governing right of
    way shall be penalized by a loss for that round. Participants must stay within
    their lane the entire track or will be disqualified. The Race Committee or Referee
    may, with or without a protest, penalize any boat before the awarding of prizes,
    which has committed a breach of these rules.
    RULE 9 • STARTS
    (9-1) Boats will start idling, in gear, off plane. Boats will stage in pairs according to
    instructions from staging boat. Yellow flag signals next pair to enter commitment
    area (area between staging buoy and starting buoy). The race will be started with
    the white flag or electronic starting device at the Starter’s discretion.
    (9-2) Flags:
    Black: Return to pits or do not leave pits
    White: Start of heat
    Yellow: Move from holding area to staging line
    Green: Inside lane winner
    Red: Outside lane winner
    (9-3) Each heat will be started by the raising or lowering of the white flag, at the
    starter’s discretion. Christmas tree starting light procedures may be used.
    (9-4) PAIRING BRACKETS: Drivers shall draw for their initial bracket positions. If a
    driver draws a bye, they are not required to make a single run.
    (9-5) The following starting procedure is recommended for all races. Both boats must be
    off plane by the staging buoy. The pace boat is the inside lane (established by the
    Referee at the drivers meeting), and must slowly idle towards the starting buoy.
    Both boats must be even prior to reaching the starting buoy or the starting judge
    will determine fault and call a turn-around. The non-pace boat must remain even with
    the pace boat as they approach the starting buoy. Only one fault per boat per
    pairing bracket is allowed before a loss for that heat results. The start judge may
    call a turn-around with no faults given, at his/her discretion. The winning boat in
    a double fault loss is still required to run a single.
    RULE 10 • FINISH
    (10-1) Minimum of one judge is required at the finish line, two are recommended.
    (10-2) The first boat to cross the finish line is the winner of the heat.
    (10-3) A judge may videotape the finish and may review the videotape to make a
    judgment on the finish.
    (10-4) After crossing the finish line a boat shall not interfere with any boat still
    in the race as to affect the time of such boat at the finish and when course layout
    permits, shall move to the outfield and remain until signalled by the flag.
    (10-5) In order to be scored, a boat must be running under its own power at the
    finish.
    RULE 11 • SCORING
    (11-1) Scoring for double elimination shall be by the following methods:
    A. Any driver participating (finishing at least one heat) will receive 25 “show up”
    points.
    B. Each driver will receive 25 points for each heat won.
    C. Each bye run will receive 25 points.
    D. Additional points will be given to first and second place finishers in each class
    as follows:
    First 125 points
    Second 50 points
    (11-2) If any 1st or 2nd place driver is disqualified, the additional points awarded
    to that driver will be reassigned to the next placing legal driver.
    (11-3) Any boat and motor will be allowed to compete in any class in which it
    qualifies according to the rules of that class. The driver will receive points in
    the class in which they run.
    (11-4) National Headquarters will tabulate High Points on a race basis with the
    following procedures:
    A. There must be at least three legal starters of the class to receive High Point
    credits.
    B. There will be a separate High Point record for each class.
    C. Points will be credited to the driver of the boat, as shown on the Official
    Summary Sheet for the class entered, and not to the owner of the boat, if different.
    RULE 12 • PROTESTS AND APPEALS
    (12-1) After competition, drivers shall have the right to protest any violation of
    the rules arising from sanctioned regattas affecting their particular class. If the
    protest concerns eligibility or legality of an entry, the protest must be filed in
    writing with the Referee not later than one hour after the finish of the last heat
    of the class in question or not later than one-half (1/2) hour after the finish of
    the last heat of racing on the day’s schedule, whichever comes last. If the protest
    concerns the eligibility or legality of an entry, the complainant must post a fee,
    in accordance with the category rules.
    (12-2) The Inspector serving on the Race Committee shall be the sole arbiter of boat
    and motor protests. In any case, a $200.00 fee, plus $25.00 per cylinder for a
    powerhead protest, shall be collected from the party protesting another contestant.
    If the boat or motor is found to be in compliance, the protesting party shall lose
    his protest fee which shall be awarded to the protestee. The owner of a boat or
    motor so protested shall present his boat or motor for inspection immediately after
    the race, or when required to by the Referee. In the case of a motor protest, the
    Inspector shall when necessary instruct the owner or driver to dismantle the motor
    completely. The Inspector may impound certain parts to determine their compliance
    with these rules. In case of a boat protest, the Inspector shall measure and request
    the driver or owner to remove certain parts such that the Inspector may ascertain if
    the boat complies with these rules. Any expense required to carry out the protest
    shall all be borne in full by the loser.
    (12-3) Fuel protest fee is $375 (non-refundable). Fee must be paid in cash at the
    time protest is filed. If the fuel test results determine the fuel to be illegal,
    the protested shall bear the entire expense of the fuel test and the protesting
    party shall be reimbursed the protest fee.
    (12-4) In the event of a gross premeditated infraction, the driver and/or owner will
    be disqualified from racing with CBF for one calendar year. Boat driver and/or owner
    loses any accrued points, in all classes, up to and including the infraction date.
    The following are examples of a gross premeditated infraction:
    A. Refusal to tear down during motor inspection under protest.
    B. Not passing motor tech inspection under protest.
    C. Refusal to submit to fuel check (in applicable classes).
    D. Not passing fuel check.
    E. Any direct or implied threat toward any CBF official or participant.
    (12-5) If a boat owner and/or driver is charged with a gross infraction and wishes to
    be reinstated within that calendar year, a $500 CBF Drag Reinstatement Fee may be
    paid by the violator, but points earned prior to and including infraction date
    cannot be reinstated. The reinstatement fee will be divided equally between the
    remaining drivers of that class on the day that the violation occurred. The
    reinstatement fee will be paid to and distributed by the Race Director.
    (12-6) All decisions of the Referee shall be final regarding violation of starting,
    driving and course rules and appeals will be allowable only if suspension is
    involved.
    (12-7) Any contestant who wishes to appeal a disqualification of boat, motor, or
    suspension, may do so by filing with the Referee a written statement accompanied by
    a $100.00 appeal fee. The matter will then be settled by the Outboard Racing
    Commission. If the appeal is upheld, the $100.00 appeal will be refunded. Otherwise,
    it will be utilized to defray general expenses of the Outboard Racing Commission.
    Under no circumstances will an appeal be entertained unless it is filed with the
    Referee within one hour after the conclusion of the day’s final event, or within one
    hour of the Referee’s adverse decision, whichever comes later. The decision of the
    Outboard Racing Commission on any appeal shall be final, conclusive and binding on
    all parties and shall not be subject to any further appeal or to any proceedings in
    any court.
    (12-8) A copy of all protests and appeals involving technical requirements of boats
    and motors shall be sent by the Referee immediately to the Chairman of the Outboard
    Racing Commission.
    (12-9) Ten (10) days will be allowed for postmark of evidence and testimony mailed to
    the Commission Chairman from all parties concerned.
    (12-10) The eventual final authority for all protests and appeals is the Outboard
    Racing Commission
    (12-11) If the resolution of an appeal or protest requires the shipment of a part or
    parts to a technical committee, the Referee shall collect an additional $100.00 from
    the person filing the appeal or protest. This money shall be used to defray the
    shipping costs for surface carrier shipment to and from the technical committee and
    any excess amount shall be sent to the Drag Representative of the Outboard Racing
    Commission. The Drag Representative shall send $100.00 to the person who filed the
    appeal or protest, and paid the additional $100.00, if the appeal or protest is
    upheld. Any special handling or shipment will be at the owner’s expense.
    RULE 13 • PRIZES
    (13-1) Cash prizes, merchandise, appearance money and/or trophies may be awarded at
    the sponsors’ discretion.
    (13-2) No trophy, prize or race shall be awarded to any person until all his racing
    and protest fees have been paid.
    (13-3) If a contestant is disqualified, the prizes shall be awarded the next
    contestant on the basis of points awarded to the legal boats in the corrected order
    of finish.
    RULE 14 • SAFETY
    (14-1) Driver Safety Equipment
    A. During any race, every participant must wear a full shell competition helmet.
    Helmets must meet Snell 1985 standards or equivalent or newer. Open face with eye
    protection or full face helmets are permitted. Any colour is permitted. Helmet
    restraints are recommended for all classes.
    B. In all race categories every participant must wear a life jacket (P.F.D.)
    designed for sanctioned racing with leg straps or thigh skirts, and skid collars. A
    jacket with 360 flak protection is recommended.
    C. CBF General Safety Rules for life jackets apply, except that the Drag Category is
    exempt from any color requirements.
    (14-2) No driver shall assume a driving position that requires that they remove both
    hands from the steering wheel.
    (14-3) A suitable arrangement shall be installed capable of closing throttles in case
    of loss of control. An electric “kill” switch shall be installed and shall be
    capable of stopping the engine if the driver is separated from the boat. This switch
    shall also shut off the fuel pump. A kill switch must consist of a line (plug, cap,
    etc. which must attach to the parts inside the hull to facilitate continuous
    operation of the engine) and a tether less than four feet in length with a switch
    activating force less than 30 pounds. All safety switch tethers must be permanently
    attached to the driver by a breakaway device with a pull force greater than the
    switch activating force. All boats with reinforced cockpits will have a positive on,
    positive off ignition shut off switch for the engine, (no momentary switches
    permitted) located on the left (port) outside of the cockpit It will be clearly
    marked “ENGINE SHUTOFF SWITCH”. Boats with reinforced cockpits equipped with
    electric fuel pumps must have a fuel pump shut down switch located adjacent to the
    engine shutoff switch. It will be clearly marked “FUEL SHUTOFF SWITCH”. Those
    switches may be combined into a single makerbreaker style switch if desired.
    (14-4) Engines must be bolted to hulls directly or via jackplate. No adjustment of
    moveable/powered jackplates (transoms) is allowed, and power to powered jackplates
    must be disconnected during competition.
    (14-5) Anyone starting or running any outboard motor over land or dock with the
    propeller, propnut, washer(s), or thrust washer on the lower unit will be
    disqualified.
    (14-6) Pre-race safety inspection: An inspection of each entry must be made by the
    Race Committee, prior to the boat entering the water at every race, to determine
    whether the boat is seaworthy, of safe construction and that all mechanical devices
    for steering, throttle, lifting bridle, etc., are in good and safe working order.
    This inspection doesn’t guarantee the safety or seaworthiness of the boat. Safety is
    the driver’s responsibility, although an inspector can disqualify a driver if
    minimum requirements are not apparent.
    (14-7) Clothing requirements are as follows: long pants and closed toe shoes are
    required; and long sleeved shirts are recommended.
    (14-8) The Outboard Racing Commission can at any time during the year add rules to
    insure the safety of all drivers, crew, and others.
    (14-9) Shiftable propellers are not permitted.
    (14-10) For boats with remote steering, a foot throttle with spring return and
    steering wheel or floor mounted power trim buttons are required.

    by the inspector and a report of any violation of rules and regulations submitted as
    early as possible to the Race Committee for action.
    (15-2) Such equipment shall be available for examination previous to the race and if
    found not in compliance with any governing rule or regulation, unsafe, unseaworthy,
    or unmanageable, or if the owner or driver has failed to live up to the rules, the
    Race Committee may rescind the entry. Correction or substitution may be permitted
    if made previous to competing in the race but the start shall not be delayed to
    allow compliance.
    (15-3) Immediately after the finish of a race, contestants shall report with their
    boats and motors to the inspector at such place as designated by the Race Committee.
    The boat and motor shall remain in the custody of the Inspector until dismissed. For
    the purpose of the enforcement of Drag technical rules, the engine and boat shall be
    assumed to have been raced in the same condition in which they appear during post
    race inspection.
    (15-4) The driver shall be responsible for the condition of the motor and hull as
    raced. Errors on the part of the manufacturer, boat builder, mechanic, or previous
    owner shall not excuse noncompliance with the rules.
    (15-5) The Inspectors shall have the power after the finish of any race to order any
    contestant to dismantle his motor for inspection and measurement. Any contestant
    refusing to comply with the orders of the Inspector or Pit Manager may be
    disqualified by the Race Committee.
    (15-6) Each winning boat and motor and such others as may be designated by the Race
    Committee, shall be torn down, inspected, and measured. The Referee may waive

    (15-12) The Referee may record a technical disqualification on a specific member’s
    card whenever:
    A. A driver does not report with his boat to the Inspector after a race for
    inspection.
    B. A driver refuses to dismantle his engine when asked to by the Inspector.
