NEW DRIVERS – PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US!
Handicap racing in large grids is especially challenging. New drivers should have competed in Classic Trial, have recorded a Pukekohe or Hampton Downs lap time better than 1:35 or proved their competence in some other way, before acceptance into the Series. Drivers who cannot consistently make those times may have their registration cancelled or be adversely handicapped.
A COD is not required for this series (but they are encouraged).
If you are new to the series, you must supply recent photographs of the car, both inside and out, to allow the car's acceptability to be assessed.
All new drivers must have an approved ‘permanent’ race number as the Series handicap system relies on unique car/driver combination numbers. With around 100 members each season and some regulars taking a break, there are usually only a few 1 or 2 digit numbers available so inquiry is essential before numbering the car.
All Series cars must be fitted with a driver’s harness seat belt and safety cages are generally required for acceptance.
Acceptance is at the Convenor's discretion. Preference will be given to rare or unusual cars as we like variety. This is an invitation race series - if your driving is less than gentlemanly or your car not up to scratch, your invitation may be withdrawn.
