Welcome to the Baltic Circuit Racing Championship media accreditation section. We thank you for your interest and coverage of Baltic Circuit Racing Championship.
Please note that: Baltic Circuit Racing Championship exclusively retains (or otherwise has the rights to) all broadcast, cable, video and intellectual property rights emanating or derived from its events, including, without limitation, all images, audio, internet content, streaming video or other mediums, whether now or hereafter created Baltic Circuit Racing Championship property).
Before applying for a media pass for any event, you must have read this rule book in full and ensure that you agree with and will comply with all rules laid out in this document for the event for which you are applying for a media pass for. Any rebroadcast, reproduction or otherwise any use of Baltic Circuit Racing Championship property, including, but not limited to, filmed, videotaped, audio or Internet related material(s) gathered on-site is prohibited without the express written permission of Baltic Circuit Racing Championship in each instance.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS For every event, all media personnel who wish to apply for a media pass for that event must fill out the media entry form for that event. Alongside the entry form for event, the deadline date for entries will also be displayed. In order to be in with a chance of receiving a media pass for that event, you must submit an entry via this form before the deadline date for entries passes.
AGE LIMITATION In order to gain a media pass for event, the person applying for a media pass MUST be at least 18 years of age on the day of the event for which they are applying.
MEDIA BRIEFING Regardless of whether or not you have been present at a media briefing at any previous event, if you have been granted a media pass for any such event, you must be present for media briefing on all days of the event for which you have been granted a media pass, in order to sign on for the event and to hear the full media briefing. The times of any media briefings will be communicated to all media personnel who have been granted a media pass for event in the days running up to the event, via the email address provided by them during the application process. If you are not present for briefing and sign-on at the correct time on each day of a event, you will not be allowed on track for that day. Individual briefing might be held. As soon as we will get your media application we will inform you about the next steps.
HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING Any media personnel who have been granted a media pass for a event MUST wear a high visibility- BRIGHT (green, yellow, pink) vest or jacket at all times when on track.
SAFE STANDING ZONES Although media personnel who are allowed on track for an event will have been granted a media pass for that event, this media pass only allows media personnel to stand in certified safe zones and not in any available trackside area. All available media safe zones will be identified for and communicated to all media personnel during media briefing. During the course of event, the track manager or any member of staff may deem an area previously certified as a media safe zone as no longer safe, and may take steps to remove media personnel from any such areas for the remainder of the event. Any such decision is to be deemed final.
CROSSING THE TRACK At no time during an event can any media personnel cross a live track to move to another certified media safe zone. This is extremely dangerous to not only you, but also potentially to riders, marshals, track staff and spectators. The only time at which any media personnel will be allowed to cross the track will be at the end of the event. However before crossing you must always request permission to cross from the nearest track marshal to you and you are only free to cross after receiving permission from them.
THE USE OF DRONES
For 2023, please clarify with organizer.
ALL BROADCAST, AUDIO AND INTERNET RELATED COVERAGE AND/OR COLLECTION OF MATERIALS, INCLUDING HIGHLIGHTS, IS PERMITTED
DECISION MAKING Although it may seem like common sense to most, the most important thing for all media personnel to be aware of is not to make senseless, stupid or ill-advised decisions. As is always the case, motorsport is dangerous and anything is liable to happen at any moment. Please always ensure you are alert when standing in a trackside media position and that you or your actions are not putting you or any others in harms way. If any media personnel are seen to be behaving in a way that is not fitting for someone in such a position, this may lead to complaints being made from spectators, online viewers or even insurance representatives and may hamper future events for all media personnel. We do ask that you please be aware of this and are aware that you must abide by all rules imposed upon you and that you do not make any senseless decisions at any time.
