Club Rules

RULE STABILITY:

If a member feels that the rules could be improved, then they may request changes be made. Any such requests must be received at or prior to the September Club meeting, so as to enable publication in the Blower and on the club website. Any changes to the rules will be decided on, or prior to, the final Committee meeting of the calendar year, for application in the next calendar year.

ELIGIBILITY:

For the Club Championship, all members are eligible regardless of age, gender, or period of membership.

A member is eligible to compete in the Junior Championship if they were less than 18 years of age on the 1st of January of the competition year.

A member is eligible to compete in the Rookie Of The Year Championship if they have not yet completed their first full BLCC calendar year of competition on the 1st January of the competition year

EVENTS TO COUNT:

The events included in the Championship, as selected by the Committee, will include all event types run by the Club. For an event to be included, it must be calendared and published in the Blower at least four weeks prior to the event. When an event is rescheduled, this rescheduled event will be included without the need to comply with the four week rule, as long as all entered competitors are notified of the change.

All eligible events will be scored for all competitors.

SCORING:

Points will be allocated in the Club Championship according to position in class for BLCC members, with additional bonus points allocated for Outright positions. Should any two or more drivers finish equal in a class or outright position drivers will be allocated equal points and the next position will not be allocated points.

CLASS POINTS:                      10, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1 …….

OUTRIGHT POINTS:                 5, 3, 1.

For the Club Championship, the lowest scoring event for each competitor will be dropped from the results. This may be a round in which the competitor did not compete. Accordingly an event that is cancelled and not rescheduled may not be used/nominated as the round to be dropped for lowest points.

OfficialsIf a competitor foregoes competing to officiate at one BLCC organised club championship event during a calendar year they are eligible to earn 10 points towards the club championship. The officiated round cannot be a State or National event and is not to be included as part of the rounds to be dropped and it is the Competitors responsibility to notify the Championship point scorer of the Officiating points earned.

The Rookie Of The Year Championship will be as per the Club Championship.

For the Junior Championship, the EIGHT best results will be totaled to give the final score.  Juniors who wish to compete in Speed Events must comply with current CAMS, NSW Sport & Recreation requirements and have Parental consent.

The Motorkhana Championship will include all motorkhana events which were scored as part of the Club Championship.

The Khanacross Championship will include all khanacross events which were scored as part of the Club Championship.

2WD CHAMPIONSHIP

Eligible vehicles are front or rear wheel drive 2WD vehicles competing in Motorkhana & Khanacross events. The Championship will be awarded to the competitor who accumulates the highest number of combined points from the Motorkhana & Khanacross Championships.

Points will be scored as per the results of each Motorkhana and Khanacross event with the competitor finishing with the highest total of points being the 2WD Championship winner.

SPEED EVENTS

For 2014 and forward years all Speed Event Vehicle Types  & classes will be as per
the CAMS current year NSW Supersprint Vehicle Type Regulations as published
and available at the following website:

www.supersprints.com.au/rules-and-regulations

The only variation to these rules is that a CAMS log book is not mandatory for Multi-club events.

TIES

Ties will be decided by comparing the outright bonus points earned by each competitor for all rounds that they competed in. The competitor with the most bonus points will be declared the winner.

If both competitors involved in the tie have equal bonus points, then they will be declared joint winners.

MULTIPLE ENTRIES

A competitor may enter an event multiple times in different vehicles. In this case, the competitor must nominate to the secretary on the day, at the start of the event, in writing and signed and dated, the entry which is to be utilised for the scoring of Championship points. If no such nomination is made, then the lowest scoring entry will be used.

RALLY DRIVER / CO-DRIVER CHAMPIONSHIP

Given that the BLCC only runs two events per year, we need to allow competitors to include events from outside the club. A competitor may nominate results from any level of rally to contribute to their scores in both the drivers and co-drivers championship.

The scale of points will vary according to the level of the event as follows:

Closed to Club or invitation / Rallysprint  20 – 1  ( 20, 19, 18…)

Clubman / Open                                                 25 – 1
AMSAG / State Round                                       50 – 1
National / ARC Round                                       50 – 1
Tarmac Rally.                                                     50 – 1
International                                                       75 – 1

In addition to the above, each competitor will be awarded one point for starting the event.

The Australian Safari, or long distance rallies (e.g. Round Australia events), will be scored under the International scale

The Centre Trek will be scored under the Open scale.
