I've got a question regarding cone calls.

Sorry about the poor ms paint lol. Those cones on the outside, if say someone understeers into them, are they cone calls? Or are they for track directions as per this (the right side example):

The reason why I ask is because there were a lot of DNF and cone calls when those outside cones were hit, but it seemed out of place for me to mention anything since it was called in by another station that was right next to it.

Pointer or leaner cones (any cone laying down) are for directional purposes only - no cone penalty and no dnf for hitting them. Only cones standing upright can result in a cone penalty or a dnf.

If you hit the pointer, but NOT the upright, generally it would be a DNF. but of course, that's up to the eyes of the course workers. Station leaders who make the call usually have a bit more experience and should know the difference.

Brian is correct in that there's no 2 second penalty or DNF for hitting pointer cones. When a pointer cone is hit in conjunction with missing a gate or some element indicated by standing cones then DNFs are issued. They're not given for hitting pointer cones on their own though.

There should have been a senior driver at that other station who should know this.

Experienced drivers are always welcome at my novice talks if they need more clarification about working on course :D

thanks guys, yeah that's what i thought regarding the pointer cones. in that case, maybe there was something else that happened there that I didn't see.

Thanks to you guys for putting on another awesome event. The UBC community is so chill and open to everyone. I can't wait for the next Slush. I've been trying to learn to only hit the pointer cones but its a higher skill level than I have:) Pip

I think ideally if you are working towards something, you should work towards not hitting any cones... ;)
