MOTORSPORT RULES 2019

The following rules are to be used as guidelines in evaluating an entrant's eligibility into tarmac events for the Impreza WRX Club Championships.

Motorsport within the club should be safe, fun and in fair spirit. The club rules are used as a guideline to ensure a fair and equitable competition across all classes. The "spirit" of the rules should be adhered to, no matter how serious the Championship seems. Some modifications are difficult to scrutineer on the day (e.g., ECU's) and the club relies on the entrant to be forthright and honest about modifications to their vehicle. Similarly, the modification list is not exhaustive. Many modifications will fall outside those mentioned here and it becomes the responsibility of the entrant to inform the Motorsport Director of these for correct classification. The Motorsport Director reserves the right to randomly subject cars to an examination to determine if they are in the correct class.

The usage of a CAMS compliant Roll Cage and 4 point harness (or better) is strongly recommended in all classes, and is required for all Vehicles in OPEN class as detailed further in Class Specific additional regulations.

The entrant, (owner of the car) is wholly accountable for ensuring that the harness is fitted in accordance with the harness manufacturer’s recommendations and the requirements of Schedule I of the CAMS Manual of Motor Sport, and that the harness date is not expired.

1.    An entrant is eligible to win the Club Championship in one class only per competing year. That is, if you enter Clubman class for first half of year, and then change to sprint class mid-way through you will begin a new club championship tally (e.g. Joe Bloggs (Clubman) – 44 points, Joe Bloggs (Sprint) – 26 points).

2.    The best 6 rounds count towards the competitors Class Championship tally for the year.

3.    In the event of a tied result for Class Champion, a winner will be determined based initially on total points of all rounds (i.e. more than best 6 rounds) followed by a count-back procedure based on number  of 1st’s, 2nd’s, 3rds  etc.

4.    Each car must meet the eligibility criteria of the class in which it competes.

5.    Each entrant is responsible for ensuring they are entered into the correct class.

6.    A Class Calculator (mod sheet) has been provided for assisting with this process. 
The eligibility of modifications outside those listed here will be at the discretion of the Motorsport Director and any appointed representatives.

7.    Completed mod sheets must be submitted to the Motorsport team before entry close on the first event the competitor has entered. In the interests of transparency between competitors, completed sheets will be placed in an online directory accessible only by other financial club members.

8.    Failure to provide the Motorsport team with a completed mod sheet may result in forfeiture of points.

9.    Cars can be randomly checked at any time (including outside of an event) to determine validity of class category entered.

10. We understand that entrants may continue to modify their cars throughout the season. Your points will stay allocated to you in the class you competed in on that day.

11. The "Club Champion" is the entrant (only in the Subaru classes) who accrues the highest number of Championship points in any one class during the year.

12. In the event of a tied result for club champion, a winner will be determined based on a count-back procedure based on number of 1st’s, 2nd’s, 3rds etc. If the count-back process is again unable to decide a winner, then the Club Champion will be determined as the entrant who is in the class with MORE overall competitors.

13. Only financial members (excluding Associate members) of the Impreza WRX club are eligible to win in Street, Clubman, Sprint, Super Sprint and Open “Class Championships” or become “Club Champion”.

14. Points accrued by entrants in the Associate classes are not counted towards the Club Championship.

15. Financial members of the Impreza WRX Club with non-Subaru vehicles are only eligible to win the Associate class.

16. Competitors found to be in blatant contravention of the class rules at an event will be automatically disqualified from the event and may be disqualified from the Championship and/or future rounds. Any appeal to this decision must be submitted to the Motorsport Director within 24 hours of the penalty being handed out and/or the entrant notified. Any subsequent decision shall be purely at the discretion of the Motorsport Director and any appointed representatives. 

17. An entrant may apply for an exception to the rules at any time. This must be submitted to the club Motorsport Director in writing 14 days prior to an event and include all relevant details including vehicle type, modifications, driver history and reasons for wanting exception.

18. Vehicle numbers must be affixed in a manner that they are visible from a distance of 50 metres, and not behind tinted glass.

19. The only vehicle that can run the number 1 is the current Club Champion, all other numbers (other than ones with a leading 0 i.e. 05) are available. Numbers will be allocated on a first come/first served basis.

20. Street Class vehicles are not permitted to run R-Spec tyres. 
        20.1 Refer the Tyre Classifications webpage for clarification

21. Slick tyres can only be run in Open class. This includes Grooved Slicks, Semi Slicks.
