WRX Motorsport 2017

Postby KuRT12 » Sun Nov 06, 2016 3:58 pm

We are excited to announce another fantastic season of Motorsport in 2017. We look forward to welcoming back our previous competitors and are excited for first timers to join our championship.

2017 MOTORSPORT RULES AND CLASS POINTS

Our Motorsport rules and classifications are continually evolving and as such, we have made some minor amendments for this new season. With the introduction of SubiNats, we have also sought to achieve some harmony with the rules of the interstate clubs.

Some of these changes include, but are not limited to;
• In striving to continuously improve competitor safety, we have decided that all Open Class cars must be fitted - as a minimum - with a CAMS Type 2 Safety Cage (half cage) as well as a minimum of a four (4) point Safety Harness in compliance with CAMS Manual Schedule I; in order to compete in the Championship/SubiNats.
• Engine selection and modification level has been expanded to provide more resolution into varying competitor motor configurations.
• The weight saving category has been expanded to provide more clarification/detail around the level of competitor weight saving in each vehicle.
• The Aerodynamics aid section has been expanded to provide more clarification/detail around the level of competitor aerodynamics for each vehicle.
• Some modification points have been scaled back in the class calculator, and class thresholds balanced to suit.
• Random scrutineering will take place during each round of the Championship, comparing competitors' Mod Score sheets to their actual modifications.
• As per last year, all Championship competitors will be required to submit an electronic copy of their "Mod Score" sheet to the Motorsport team at the start of the year, or prior to event, and will only be required to resubmit this when changes have been made to their vehicle. These sheets will be electronically view-able to all financial members of the club and hyperlinked into the class championship table. This provides transparency between competitors, and allows us to scrutineer more efficiently.
• Only the best six rounds for each competitor will be used in the calculation of each class champion.
• Points from all rounds will count toward the overall Club championship.
• The introduction of a Tyre Classification Chart has been implemented in order to clarify for competitors when selecting different tyres, as well as when scrutineering other competitors cars.
• The Federal 595 RS-RR tyre has been moved from “R-Spec” to “Street” in the tyre classification chart for the 2017 season.
