Parc Ferme

Currently, the rules state that...

2.1.1 Compliance Control

At the end of the race, the DSC Technical Committee can request that all classified motorcycles are placed in a parc-fermé for a period of at least 30 minutes.


Which is fine as long as nobody wants to lodge a protest. However, I think that Parc Ferme should be compulsary after every race, and then we all know where we stand.

If there is no parc ferme, then I can't see how a protest can be made/upheld as anything could happen between the end of the race and 30 mins later when the committee turn up to look at a bike.

What do the rest of you think?

havnt voted as nothing really suits what i would want.

i think one bike chosed out of the hat should be pulled in after each race and as thourough check as possible made. obviously you cant go taking engines apart. but obvious things. dare i say tyres etc.

massively difficult to take apart an engine and check everything but i guess is some lodges a complaint then it could be done between meeting?

So if I protest the whole field after race 1 and get there engines stripped I could be in with a chance of wining race 2, bit like buying a trophy me thinks

So if thats the case, why not just remove the rule altogether?

If there is no Parc Ferme, and someone protests me, then it's tough doo doo in my opinion.

Nobody was stripped this year, and there was no parc ferme, and only one protest?

So it's a joke rule in that case.

Like Dickie says, who is gunna strip an engine down between races - and rebuild it again with £25!!

Also, how many bikes are running hi-comp pistons this year - and who is honestly gunna change them back?

What would happen if somone turned up with £500 and protested the top 20?

Are you telling me that anything would actually happen?

can we not introduce at power limit now seeing as we have split the grid? fairly easy to chuck a bike on a dyno. we know what a standard bike chucks out roughly. add a bit for cans pc's etc and roberts your dads brother. its not fool proof but it stops someone running a hugely superior powered bike.

it quick and very transparent.

still pull one bike in for a cursory check after each race too.
