Yeah good question...it became apparent at Caldicot, that at club meetings at COBRA, pins are allowed? Is this correct?

If not, can I just say that for tyre longevity, and some fun, I do hope that there is a reasonable amount polish floor/slippy if we have to run minispikes or an alternative 50% of each surface would be excellent!

Cheers
Mark

Currently (and I will get this verified by the new committee), that the pins were banned as a club rule (cue Roy). But the intention is to have a mix of hardboard and carpet, if we can, also have some of the gymnasium floor to. The track isn't going to be a touring car track with bumps.

It's funny how some peoples memory is very selective isn't it, we were all at the same discussion yet you still find it hard to remember what was proposed and voted in. Open motors open tyre for all classes.

Is that enough of a "cue".

I know I wasn't there that race meeting when the vote took place. But at AGM the other week it was discussed mentioned it was open motor/open tyre for club championships, but nothing was said for other events the club holds (club days etc).

Now, to me, logic also dictates that they can be also used at other club events, but, Steve has mentioned, perhaps the committee should have a quick chat/email/text to clarify the position 100% as at the moment, it isn't know for sure.

It is clarification of the passing it as a club rule at the 2009 AGM that needs finding out, as in the end, a club rule takes precedence over the champ, once that is done, then we can move on from this subject once and for all.

Craig, I have no idea on the WRCA rules, might be worth asking a committee member

As you quoted an apparent WRCA rule I thought you may have known something no one else does. How can there be any rules if there are no rules?

This lipo bag rule is apparently a BRCA rule which I have heard through a few 3rd party rumours and yet no official notice has been given to the clubs by the BRCA, so how can that be a rule either???? Confused.com

I was informed that it was one of the things laid out at the AGM Craig, but not seen it in writing as yet, same with the BRCA rule, I have been told it is to go in the General Rules section, but as of yet, nowt.

It would go to Vanessa at the moment, but I have not heard anything as of yet.

I will admit, we all know it is coming, but in what form we don't know, I am assuming the worst, which would be it is in General Rules and it will be a commercially available item, but that would also mean that any LiPo cell charged at a meeting must go into a sack, transmitter, receiver, starter box etc. If you hear anything, Craig, let us know?
