Keep racing at all times, progressing to your next flag, except where specified otherwise in the Race rules.
If you are on foot and there is an empty hog available, you must race with it, unless a friendly hog is waiting or approaching to pick you up.
You may not exit a hog anywhere to race on foot, even if you are unable to drive part of the route. A key example is up the ramp to the second flag (first cliff) of Sidewinder.
Tip: Learn to drive the ramp! Make sure your starting approach is in line with the first leg of the ramp. Now try full speed, slightly cutting the corner (it's OK if one wheel is off the ramp). Slow for the bridge. Still having problems? Try it very slow. Keep trying until a teammate's hog comes by, then get in and observe his or her technique!
If there is a hog available do not chase after another hog that is no longer visible.
On Sidewinder while on foot, do not follow an enemy hog into base when there are hogs available outside the base.
On Gephyrophobia while on foot, do not follow an enemy hog into base or to the lower level when there are hogs available outside the base.
When there are no hogs available, you must race on foot. However, once you arrive at the next base, you must check for hogs before proceeding on foot.
On Sidewinder, if you cannot find a hog at a base, you may proceed through the teleporters to the other base and back to the first base before checking again for a spawned hog.
On Danger Canyon, if you spawn at a base with no hogs you may proceed on foot through the tunnels and exit at the place that has your next flag. You may only exit the tunnels at the exit that is closest to your next flag (except where you need to briefly exit and re-enter to proceed to your flag). If your next flag is in the middle, you may proceed there and jump or teleport down to get your flag. Also, you may not nade or fire up at vehicles passing over the flag (see rule 6.5). While in the tunnels you may pick up a rocket launcher only if it is en route to your next flag. However, you may not fire down from above or while jumping down (see rule 6.3).
On Ice Fields, when you respawn you may use the teleporter to proceed to your next flag only if there are no hogs at base. The only exception is if you were in a hog in the lower middle area and were killed. In that case, upon respawning you may proceed through a teleporter to retrieve your hog, even if there are hogs at base.
On Infinity, you may go back and forth to either side of the large structure at red base to check for hogs until one appears (or until a team mate picks you up, or you are able to hijack an enemy hog). You may also do the same at the back of the large structure, using team chat ("Y") to ask for pickup. Don't wait in the near vicinity of the flag—that is camping.
You must race directly and continuously through the flags even if you are on foot. The one exception to this rule is the "Last Lap Defense" rule.
You may not use the bridges on Infinity.
You may purposefully commit suicide, but only if your next flag is at the other base. However, keep in mind that this is rarely your best strategy.
You may stop to pick up a gunner or passenger, and in fact are encouraged to do so as it will often help your team score.
You are allowed to change your route to avoid getting killed.
In Danger Canyon you may drive through the tunnels to get to your next flag.
~ No camping or sniping on Race servers
~ Respect the admins & all players
~ No profanity
~ No team nading/rocketing
Most of the rules are pretty easy to follow, but camping can have different meanings to different people. So here is the rule about camping:
Camping is defined as sitting and waiting in a hog, on foot, etc. for the intent of killing another player. If your life isnt in danger on a Race map you should be driving. If you have to stop to shoot to save your life this isnt considered camping.
