Learning the rules

The ULHRA achieves its safety through more than just boat technology. Improved safety also comes from education and enforcement of the rules. For example, a driver new to ULHRA racing doesn’t just put in some test time, show up, and race. New drivers are quizzed on rules and procedure. They need to have a certain amount of “seat time” to qualify for a race, and are required to run behind the pack of boats in their first race(s) under observation before being given a “green light” to begin racing. Driver education is not only important in improving a driver’s performance, a better driver is a safer driver.

Coming up next: following the rules.
