As per the ISR Rulebook, Full coverage helmets are mandatory. Helmets will be full protective coverage and carry the 2010 Snell Foundation Approval Code. Helmets carrying European Standard ECE 22.05 are also approved.  It is mandatory that the driver’s helmet must be a minimum of seventy five percent (75%) international or blaze orange.

PLEASE REFER TO THE ISR RULE BOOK AVAILABLE ONLINE AT http://www.isrracing.org/ TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING DRIVER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT RULES, ETC.

Please be advised that the following ISR rule regarding snowmobile identification will also be strictly enforced:  The driver’s assigned competitive number must be displayed on both sides of snowmobile hood. The number must be a minimum of six (6) inches high, 3/4 inches wide and be displayed in contrasting colors. Numbers must also be displayed on both sides of tunnel, minimum four (4) inches high. These numbers must be displayed on the snowmobile in a permanent manner before being allowed to race.

This is a mandatory rule, as track personnel need to be able to identify your sled on the track.  Failure to comply could  potentially cost you a paycheque should you win your race but we are unable to verify the number on your sled.  We appreciate you making our jobs easier!

NEW THIS YEAR:   CPTC is proud to be featuring Motorcycle Ice Racing as an exhibition event this year.  There will be two classes offered:  Ice Bike Pro Open and Ice Bike Semi Pro Open, with a maximum of 16 entries per class.  Each driver can only register in one class, not both.  We will be following the CMA rule book for Ice Racing.  Equipment such as proper footwear, helmets (ECE 22-05 or Snell M2010) and chest protectors will be mandatory.  Safety equipment required includes front and rear tire guards, lanyard-type kill switches, and a maximum of 8.5 mm stud height.  Because this is an exhibition event, entry is free and therefore, there will be no prize money pay-out.  The only cost will be $25 per driver for insurance.  If you have any questions about rules, please call or text our tech person, Dave Rand, at 204-223-7227.
