Scrutineer Notes

Information on 1300 Stock Car Bumpers and Promoter Engine Buyback Rule

It has come to the attention of the 1300cc Saloon Stock Car Association that there are cars racing that have Bumpers (either Front or Rear) that are not to 12 inches as in the rulebook. This needs to be rectified as soon as possible. Extensions WILL NOT be accepted. The bumpers must be as written in the rules. Cars that do not have the correct sized Bumpers will not be eligible for Championship events. This is being enforced throughout the Association not just Trackstar.

The full bumper rule is reproduced below;

 

8. FRONT & REAR BUMPERS

 

1.     The bumpers must be constructed of 38x38mm, 40x40mm SHS or 50x25mm RHS iron with a maximum thickness of 5mm & consist of a maximum of 8 equally spaced uprights between the horizontal cross-bars.

2.    The bumper horizontal cross bars must be spaced a minimum of 305mm (measurement taken from the   outside of the horizontal bars) apart top to bottom.

3.     The bumpers may have straight or angled ends.

4.     There should be a maximum of three pieces of iron joining each bumper corner.

5.     A rubbing iron made from 50x25x3mm or 40x40mm RHS iron may be welded to the fence side front bumper upright only. Please ensure that the welding of this rubbing iron has full penetration & the 50mm side of the iron is against the side of the upright.

6.     The flat horizontal bars in the front bumper should have a minimum width of 750mm/29.5”.

7.     Bumpers must not have added steel as strengthening behind the bumper. A gap of approximately 40mm/1½” between the bumper and any other strengthening must exist – this rule applies to all new builds and must be implemented on ALL cars by July 1st 2012. The scrutineer’s decision is final with regards to supports. If the car does not have a rear panel to the floor, the rear bumper must be panelled in with plate of a maximum thickness of 1.2mm.

 

The 1300 Stock Car Association has also instructed all promotions that they must purchase at least one engine in 2016 from a top flight driver. If you are doing well in the points do not be surprised if we purchase your engine under the rule below. Please note that this does not mean that we think you are cheatling if we do! Spedeworth recently purchased the engine of World Champion 129 Will Morphey at the Steve O Dell meeting with no aminosity from any party. We pay £250 for any engine we purchase so if we buy yours make sure you end up in profit! Please note that your engine can also be bought at the end of any meeting by any driver who has the same type of engine fitted. Any driver looking to do this needs to organise it though through the meeting steward and scrutineers.

The engine buyback rule is reproduced below;

 ENGINES

NEW ENGINES

When using any of the following type of engines, any driver with the same type of engine in their car, a car it could be fitted into or promoter can buy your engine at the end of a meeting for £250 minus inlet, carb, distributer, clutch and flywheel (i.e. bare engine).

Restrictor plates will be used to govern competitive performance for all new type cars. 

1250cc – 1350cc Multi-valve / 1351cc - 1400cc 8v or Multi-valve Engines

 

Reminder on helmets and overalls - 31 December 2015

Drivers attention is drawn to the safety rules for all formulas regarding helmets and overalls. At the Christmas meeting drivers in all formulas presented helmets and overalls which are against the rules.

The current helmet ruling is below;

CRASH HELMET

Helmets must be of a minimum standard as directed by British Oval Racing Safety Executive (B.O.R.S.E).  These are FIA8860-2004, FIA8860-2010, Snell SA2005, Snell SA2010, Snell SA2015, SFI Foundation 31.1A, SFI Foundation 31.2A.  The E2205 European standard helmet may be used in Fibreglass, Carbon or Tri-Composite form only i.e. NO POLYCARBONATE helmets are allowed.  It is important that the helmet fits the driver correctly.  Shatterproof goggles/visors must be worn although tinted visors are not advisable. Your helmet must display the current ORCi (ORC15) sticker.

With regard to overalls, several drivers attempted to present overalls which were karting ones or other non fireproof overalls. The current ruling regarding overalls is below;

 

RACING OVERALLS

You must wear Fire retardant, clean, un-torn and brightly coloured Racing Overalls that are made of a fire retardant material and are clearly marked fireproof. Mechanics are also required to wear clean overalls and will not be permitted on to the track without them being on, when instructed to do so.

 

Banger Roll Cage Update - 24 March 2015

 THE ROLL BAR MUST NOT HAVE ANY REAR SUPPORTS but may have extensions no further forward than the B post (see diagram) (this applies to both sides of the car). If used, it is highly recommended that this is bolted through the B post.

 

 

Tyre Update - 10th March 2015

Following numerous queries from drivers regarding the Kingpin Alpine tyre please note these are not allowed to be raced with Trackstar or any other ORC promotion other than Startrax who have adopted this as a local rule.

Any further enquirees can be texted
