Khanacross Rules 2017

At the February General Meeting of Bathurst Light Car Club the members voted to conduct future BLCC Khanacross events for 2017 using the existing competition guidelines for vehicle specifications. In accordance with that resolution all future Khanacross events for 2017 will be conducted using Schedule A of the current CAMS manual and Group 4H of the Auto Test section of the current CAMS manual as the guidelines/requirements for vehicles to compete at these events. The last Khanacross was conducted under these guidelines and as a compromise competitors were allowed to compete with ineligible vehicles. Any non-conformities were listed in the vehicle logbook and are to be rectified prior to the vehicle being allowed to compete in future Club events. This particular khanacross was conducted as a non-championship point scoring round. Although unfortunate, this was deemed appropriate under the circumstances due to the potential actions of one competitor who did not agree with the Club’s decision. Despite the best intentions of the officials and committee a small minority of competitors repeatedly queried these specifications. In an endeavour to ensure the clubs decision is upheld, the committee unanimously decided to clarify the class regulations through the issue of refined Supplementary Regulations for our future Khancross events to assist with interpretation of requirements. Relative vehicle specifications/requirements are detailed hereunder: SCRUTINY - SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS: Competitors must be a financial member of a CAMS Car Club and produce a current, valid Membership Card and current, valid CAMS Competition Licence at document check.
