See here for the Sports Rules that apply for bets placed before: 31-10-2023

Motor Sport

General

The following rules include reasons for voiding bets.

If there is a presentation ceremony, bets will be settled in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony.

If there is no presentation ceremony, bets will be settled in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body immediately after the event.

The above applies regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).

If a bet is placed after the relevant result or outcome is known, then the bet will be void.

Abandonments, Cancellations and Postponements

If a race is abandoned, postponed or cancelled, all bets will be void unless the race is completed within 24 hours of the original scheduled ‘off’ time.

Formula 1

All drivers who complete 90% of the race laps are deemed as classified finishers in line with the official FIA classification. However, all drivers are given a ranking, and for the purpose of match and positional betting, this ranking shall apply.

The start of the race is deemed to be the signal to start the warm-up lap. All drivers are in play from this point on.

From the formation of any race market, bets are considered to be non-driver no bet. Any bets on drivers who fail to take part in the race for any reason other than non-qualification shall be deemed void.

In the event of a driver switching race teams during race week or a driver not originally listed entering the field, all bets taken prior to these changes being factored into the betting will be re-settled at the correct odds taking into account the team/car change.

Race Match and Group Betting

The driver who finishes in the highest position is deemed the winner.

Formula 1 Championship and Constructors Championship

The drivers' and constructors' championship titles are awarded to the driver and constructor who score the most points over the course of the season. In the case of a dead heat for a championship place, then the driver or constructor with the higher number of superior race results will be awarded the place.

Qualification Betting

Bets will be settled as the fastest lap posted during the third qualifying session (Q3). If Q3 does not take place, bets will be settled if the grid is formed based on times from Q1 or Q2. All bets will be void if the grid for the main race or for Sprint Qualifying (where such format is used) is formed based on any other criteria. With respect to all bets on qualifying, either outright or match betting, the official times as recorded by the FIA will apply for the settlement of bets. Drivers must start the first phase of qualifying for bets to stand. Any subsequent penalties or demotions imposed shall be disregarded.

Sprint Qualifying Markets

All race bets are settled on the official FIA classification immediately after the sprint qualifying session, with subsequent disqualifications or penalties disregarded. The race must be run within 24 hours of the scheduled ‘off’ time for bets to stand.

NASCAR, IndyCar and Cart Racing

Outright Race Betting

The 'field' includes any driver who is not listed in the outright odds. Any drivers who fail to qualify for the race will be deemed as non-runners. The race must be run within 24 hours of the scheduled ‘off’ time for bets to stand. The official NASCAR/IndyCar winner of the race will be settled as the winner for betting purposes, this includes all races which are halted prematurely.

Driver Match-Ups

If one driver fails to complete the race, the other driver will be deemed the winner. Where both drivers fail to complete the race, the number of laps completed will determine the winner. If both drivers fail to complete on the same lap, the official placings as assigned by the controlling authority will determine the result. Both drivers must start the race for bets to stand. In the event of a replacement driver, all bets are void.

Moto GP, World Superbikes and British Superbikes

Qualification Betting

Riders must start qualifying for qualifying bets to stand. Subsequent penalties or demotions will not affect bet settlement.

Qualifying Head-to-Head

Both riders must take part in qualifying, and at least one of them must complete a qualifying lap for bets to stand.

Race Head-to-Head

Both riders must start for bets to stand. If both riders fail to complete the race, the rider completing more laps will be deemed the winner, if both riders have completed the same number of laps, bets will be void. Subsequent penalties or demotions will not affect bet settlement.

Speedway

Individual Meeting Betting

In the event of an abandoned match, all bets will be void unless the running of the remainder of the match would not have affected the result.

Individual Heat Winner

All four quoted riders must start the specified heat. Otherwise, bets are void.

Head-to-Head Markets

Both riders must start at least one race for bets to stand. Bets will be void if a meeting is abandoned unless the result has already been decided beyond dispute. The winner shall be determined by whichever rider has gained the most points after the normal heat stages of any meeting, the only exception to this will be if both riders reach the final, in which case finishing position in the final itself will decide the winner.

Any bonus points earned by a rider will not count towards their total and will be deducted prior to the winner being decided for settlement purposes.

 

The Sportsbook General Rules will apply for any category of bets or markets not referred to in these Specific Sports Rules.
