Please take note of this message on Blue Lights on the front of Vehicles.
Please advise both your competitors and your scrutineers that they should only be running white lights on the front of their vehicles as per below.
A blue forward facing light’s effectiveness depends on a variety of factors (location, size, lumens/wattage etc) and although it may seem beneficial and with good intent, General Requirement article 24 (f) doesn’t specify a blue light; the regulation only references the use of a white light.
(6) Each vehicle must have a minimum of a single white forward facing headlamp fitted which comply as a minimum with ADR 46 for a dipped-beam headlamp and which must be illuminated during all competitive sections of the event.
It could be argued that in addition to the white headlamp, a blue light could be installed. However, the general rule of thumb is - if it’s not mentioned within the regulations, then it’s not permitted. ‘If it doesn’t say you can, then you can’t’. If competitors were to start fitting lights of all colours to the front of their vehicles, this may cause unnecessary confusion during competition.
It was raised at Commission level the possibility of permitting the use of a blue forward facing light, however the Commission decided to review the effectiveness of the rearward facing light first.

It is with great sadness that we advise the passing of one of the former landowners of the Milbrodale Mountain Classic.
Errol supported Off Road Racing for many years, generously allowing HVORRA to conduct the Milbrodale Mountain Classic on his property.
He not only volunteered his time assisting HVORRA, he was very actively involved in the Bulga/Milbrodale community.
He was also a member of the Rural Fire Service for over 50 years (Group Captain South - AFSM) attending a vast number of fires and emergencies.
Errol made an impact on every person he made contact with through his infectious smile and generous heart.
We will remember Errol for his sense of humour and happy go lucky way of life.
It is a sad day, we’ve lost a true gentlemen. Our thoughts go to his wife Judy and their family.
Errol's funeral will be held on Thursday 10th January 2019 - 10.30am at All Saints Church, Singleton
Please see below invite for presentation night to be held on 10th Nov at Raymond Terrace Bowling Club.

She was a member of the NSW Off Road Panel as well as organising the point score for the NSWORC. On behalf of all HVORRA members we send our deepest condolences to Sue’s husband Werner, their daughters and family.
