Gates to the venue will open at 7.00am. Signing on will commence at 8.00am in the reception building and scrutiny will take place in the designated area from 8.00am. Please ensure all cars have been cleaned and prepared thoroughly for this event and any race wear should be clean and free from oil/fuel stains. Noise testing may also take place so please ensure vehicles can satisfy the maximum permitted RSA noise regulation of 100 dba for cars and 105 dba for race buggies measured .5 metre from the exhaust end at 4000 rpm cars and 6000 rpm for race buggies. Tests will not be taken prior to 10 am due to noise control at this event but will be be taken at random during the event by scrutineers both stationary and on stage so be advised that test failure will result in exclusion unless satisfactory tests can be concluded after a retest.
The competitors briefing will take place at the reception building at 9.45am and cars should be lined up prior to the briefing and be ready in the pit lanes to start at 10.00 sharp. We have provided a written version of the drivers briefing here and we would like to encourage new competitors to familiar themselves with this standard event briefing however we still insist on full participation for every competitor at every event to satisfy IOPD and our commitments to our insurers as we may inform of additional information relating to each event.
We want also to reinforce notice that any abuse, verbally or otherwise delivered to any of the RSA track marshal’s and event management team will NOT be tolerated and may result in exclusion from this and future events.
Noise is closely monitored at all venues so therefore we can only permit ANY engine to be revved after 10.00am.
An observation lap for each crew will start at 10.10am and the first stage of the planned six/seven will follow immediately after. Competitors best five times will ultimately determine the results.
The prize giving for this event will take place 15 minutes after the last car finishes and everyone is invited to attend although we request that everyone obeys the social distancing governmental guidelines. The final results will be available here, on this website for download by 6.00pm that evening.
