I was looking forward to the races but Andy Forrest pointed out the following small print over on Facebook:

(c) be in possession of valid current Competition Race National B Status Licence, as a minimum. Note; MSA General Regulation Q.9.1.2 Any driver competing in a vehicle of 0.34bhp/kg or higher (excluding driver weight) and measured at the driven wheels must be the holder of a Race National A licence, as a minimum.


So how many people in A or Pro have a national A, I would need a bunch of signatures, I havnt done the maths but suspect it might discount people in B as well, seems a strange ruling, anyone know the background?

Updated to day it's an MSA ruling...

Good point it was advertised as being cheap to avoid the cost of doing an ards?

The 340 BHP per tonne is an MSA rule introduced this year. You've probably fallen foul of it already with your smrc debut. Smile So if you want to keep racing you'll need to upgrade, or get a lower powered car.

As David says, you have already raced with your B licence when you shouldn't have been able to. That makes a big statement IMO

Laughing

Stop asking Very Happy

Saying that, its less obvious (harder to police) in SMRC when SLS is based on power to weight.

You could simply turn your boost down for the races, and you'll then come within the ruling - SORTED.

Pretty sure you cant go circuit racing without ARDS.

I agree with Adam Wink

Still need ARDS, though I think there was some discussion of special rate for competitors registered with SLS.

If you have a Speed Nat A, which is what I have, you then do the ARDS test you still can't race if your car is over the 340bhp/t limit so how can you possibly upgrade unless you then have another car just so you can upgrade.

see above...

turn the power down... Neutral

or get a drive in a low(er) power car.

For reference, our Impreza is within the 0.34 rule Smile

And how do you know how far to turn it down and what's to stop someone turning it back up ?

I meant it tongue in cheeck.... and wouldn't consider it cheating if you did up the power as you'd be in the correct class (sls) anyway....

I consider the MSA rule 'daft'
