It would be appreciated if ALL off Road Competitors could look at the following to see if you comply, as it will make the Job easier for Officials working at our Events in 2017.
1. ROOF NUMBER; The Roof Number GR 30 (General Requirements For Off Road Vehicles)
All numbers must be displayed in horizontal format, be at least 150mm in height, with at least 19mm stroke width, with a 25 mm space between each number, and be black in colour on a white background. (Please note this is not all of Rule GR30)
2. NSW Off Road Generic Supplementary Regulations; 16; Eligibility 16.1, Last Sentence.
A small contrasting colour, forward facing racing number, at least 70mm high, must be fitted. This is to assist Marshals during line up.
If competitors could stand back and have a look at this number which should be either on the windscreen if applicable or on the area above/ or below where a windscreen would be on vehicles without a windscreen, preferably on the Navigator/or left hand side of the vehicle and see if you think it is clear and distinctive for reading.
Our officials do the best they can and it would certainly help if Competitors could assist Event organisers with these matters/issues by complying with the rules.
3. Reminder for Competitors on the rules for refueling cars.
Off Road Standing Regulations; 4.8
Refuelling; The following regulations apply to any operation that involves refuelling and/or the removal/opening of a fuel filler cap.
