CLASSIC HOT RODS RULES ND REGS


1 – TYPE AND BODY

Only pre–1976 saloon cars and engines are allowed.

Bodies must be steel. Bonnets, wings, doors, front and rear wheel arches and boot lid may be aluminium or fibreglass, but not Kevlar. Fibreglass “flip fronts” on Minis are allowed. No X-pack arches are allowed on Escorts. No aerofoils or wings may be fitted, with the exception of a small boot lid lip spoiler on Mk1 or Mk2 Escorts.

Panels that are damaged beyond reasonable repair and/or where there is no aftermarket replacement these panels/parts maybe replaced by a fabricated self produced copy made from the same material as the original, same thickness and of the same shape. These replacement panels must be attached in the same way and in their original position.

Door apertures may not be changed or reshaped and the aperture must accept a standard original manufactured panel even though an outer door skin is being used for the door covering.

The body shell sill panel and chassis with floor must be fitted as produced and may not be reduced in depth or length either in fitment or by wear and tear. (Technical Scrutineering will have templates to check the specification/conformity of the body)

The wheel base must be to standard manufactured specification to plus 50mm.

The body must not be cut and lowered, narrowed or shortened.

To determine the most rearward position of the engine, this is defined by a measurement from the V groove of the centre of the lower edge of the front windscreen to the rear of the engine block.

MK1/MK2 Escort 10 inches (229mm)

Ford Anglia 9 inches (229mm)

Vauxhall Chevette 11 inches (279mm)

Austin A40 7 inches (178mm)

For any other models a calculation will be made by the Technical/Inspecting Scrutineer. This calculation will take in to account the wheelbase of the car in relation to the above measurement set and the front and rear axle weight. 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 3



The Technical/Inspecting Scrutineer’s decision will be final and it will then be documented in forthcoming regulations.

Engines must be kept in the centre line of the car from side to side and in original position.

7 – SUSPENSION

Front suspension – the original concept must be retained with the exception of compression struts or brake reaction rod can be added. Front anti roll bars can be replaced, repositioned, mounted differently but must not be used as torsion bar.

Steering box may be replaced with steering rack from an alternative vehicle, power steering is not allowed.

All cars must be fitted with a MacPherson front strut system, given this system was not fitted to this vehicle then the conversion must be carried out professionally using a chassis mounted cross member for the pick-up points to mount the suspension. No space frames allowed.

During 2014 for existing cars already requested to the championship and raced in 2013 an amnesty will be issued to these cars up to November 2014 and not beyond. These cars must be registered to the championship by 31 January 2013 the Technical/Inspector Scrutineer will check the authenticity of the claim before issuing amnesty documentation.

Where wishbones are fitted as standard and amnesty has been issued for 2014these may be replaced to offer an alternative form of adjustment, any replacement component must fit to existing cross member and chassis pickup points. No space framing is permitted to aid fitment.

Shock absorbers – In 2015 there will be a one make shock absorber rule to control cost and performance and any front engine, rear wheel drive car will be required to fit a MacPherson front strut system.

Hillman Imp: The original concept must remain (i.e. independent all round). Replacement suspension arms may be fabricated from tube but must be mounted in the original suspension pick up points. These replacement arms must be mounted using rubber bushes, i.e. no nylon

These tyres may not be cut or altered in any way from that supplied by the manufacturer/supplier. No tyre may be buffed, refaced or trimmed by any mechanical device, tyre warmers, space heaters or similar devices for heating or softening the tyre compound are not permitted at any time. The use of any chemical mixture that is placed in the vicinity of or applied to the tyre that would restructure the compound of the tyre is not permitted.

It is allowed to use hand glove to remove deposited rubber, grit and dirt from the tyres between races. 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 6



A total of five tyres are all that are permitted to be used on race days throughout the event and of those five tyres only one is allowed to be new. The remainder must be selected from those declared at a previous 2014 Classic Hot Rod event and the relevant coding and designated numbers have been recorded on the documented tyre sheets registered to that vehicle and in the driver’s name.

This information must be registered with the Technical Inspector/Scrutineer prior to practise and/or racing.

Each tyre has two number brandings one on either side of the tyre. Both the numbers must be entered on the declaration form at the time. When the numbers are unreadable the tyre is eligible to be used and there is no facility to bring in a replacement.

If the car is involved in an accident or incident which causes damage to the tyres it will be at the discretion of the Technical Inspector/Scrutineer as to whether extra tyres may be allocated for use. Additional tyres must be on a like for like basis. On the introduction of these tyres the original tyre will be destroyed by drilling through the side wall. Thereafter it is the responsibility of the driver to remove tyres from the circuit.

At certain championships the promoter of the championship may elect to offer the competitors the option of extra tyres, this decision will be made twenty eight days prior to the event.

Tyre ‘blow off’ (pressure regulation) valves are NOT permitted. This rule applies whether they be of the short or extended type.

The current regulations will be applied in 2014 but in 2015 there will be a single supplier for tyres and implementation of a one new tyre per meeting rule. The tyres will be branded and coded and tyre declaration documentation will be implemented to manage the ruling. This will also apply to wet tyres.

9 – TRACK WIDTH & RIDE HEIGHTS

Track width front and rear must not exceed 69” (1753mm) the measurement is taken from the side wall of the tyre, centre of wheel as it makes contact with the ground. Prior to this check tyre pressures are to be set at 1.4 bars or 20psi and the tyres must be covered with flared wheel arch extensions. Where trailer arches are used these must be gusseted back into the body or rounded off.

The ride height of the car is the clearance of the chassis rails or if there are no chassis rails the floor area between the front and rear tyres.

The ride height is 3 inches (76mm)

This can be checked at any time.

Prior to ride height checks beings carried out tyre pressures can be adjusted to a maximum pressure of 1.4 bar (20psi) in each of the four tyres. Regulation 1 to be applied.

If a wheel and/or tyre is damaged it can be replaced by one of a similar wear and tear prior to checking.

This test is carried out with no driver in the car.

10 – WINDSCREENS & GLASS

No glass is allowed in the window or screen apertures unless it is laminated safety glass, perspex or lexan. If a windscreen is fitted, working wipers and washers must also be fitted. In any case, no glass or similar material which would restrict access to the vehicle may be fitted to the driver’s door.

Perspex or lexan visors are allowed for driver protection.

All other glass must be removed from the outside of the car, and headlamp and all other apertures must be blanked off using aluminium or maximum 18-gauge steel.

An upright metal support must be welded or bolted in position in the windscreen aperture one third of the way along from the driver’s side to prevent loose bonnets or wheels entering the driver’s compartment.

Mirrors: THREE mirrors must be fitted

The only exception to the above is that a passenger seat may be fitted for use by media representatives or similar.

This must still be equipped with a safety harness of the same type as that stipulated for drivers.

Passengers may not be carried in actual competition.

The seat position is determined by its maximum rearward placement in the chassis from the centre of the rear axle tube to the rear of the seat, regulation 1, 5 and 11 are applied.

MK1/MK2 Escort 26 inches (660mm)

Ford Anglia 20 inches (508mm)

Any other vehicles will be evaluated by the Technical/Inspecting Scrutineer who will take in to account, in their decision, the wheel base of the model, the position of the front bulkhead and stature of the driver, submitting the vehicle for inspection.

The driver should decide on the vehicle he wishes to use taking in to account his stature and selecting a model accordingly.

13 – FLOOR

Where costs or supply prohibit obtaining original/replacement parts it is permitted to make up new floor and tunnel in CRGP sheet steel material of a thickness of no less than 0.8mm. Where the chassis rails meet the original floor members these must be retained in their original position.

Where the gearbox and axle areas have been modified the replacement material must be steel and a welded integral part of the body shell.

Spare wheel bowls may be removed and plated over in steel sheet. No floors may be modified to create better air flow or vented to create down force.

Floor may be modified to gain better exhaust clearance. A foot plate must be fitted under the drivers feet of 1.5mm thickness.

Four 50mm diameter holes are to be cut in the floor of the boot if the tank is fitted inside to allow any spillage of petrol to escape. There should also be extra holes anywhere fuel might lay, although the total of holes or slots must not represent more than 20 per cent of the boot floor area.

Hillman Imp: the term “boot” employed here, refers to the front luggage compartment.

14 – FUEL SYSTEM

Tanks are to be fitted in the boot if possible. 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 8



All tank filler caps must have a positive means of fixing to prevent cornering spillage. No rubber push-on caps or similar permitted. Fuel “cells” (such as those manufactured by ATL or JAZ) or so-called “bag tanks” are recommended.

17 – EXHAUSTS

The preferred silencers to be used are either

1. The Simpson Race Exhaust Part No. MS500.

2. Edward Exhaust Spedeworth Part No. EDW21



Any exhaust silencing must be compliant with the environmental permits for the stadium being raced. The 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 9



environmental officer for the stadium has the right to exclude any car/competitor from a race and/or meeting for infringement of the stadium permits. The officer’s decision is final for non-compliance.

The remainder of the exhaust is free, and may come out of the rear or the side of the car. Any part of the exhaust system which passes through the driver’s cockpit must be fully covered by a metal shield.

18 – ROLL CAGES

All tubes must be made of steel (i.e. alloy roll cages are not permitted) and to full FIA specification or as detailed below with a minimum of:

- Two hoops, either running from front to rear or side-to-side.

- One lower bar (recommended).

- One dash cross bar

- Two driver’s side chicken bars (plus connecting bracing).

- Two passenger side chicken bars (plus connecting bracing)

- The roll cage hoop feet must be welded to four 3mm thick plates, 230mm square, welded to the floor, or a piece of tube or box (38mm x 38mm x 2.5mm minimum thickness) connecting front and rear hoop feet, welded to sill or floor. Two separate chicken bars are still required.



If the cage is to be self-built, it must use 32mm (3mm thick) or 38mm (2.5mm thick) tubing.

All joints must be welded over a minimum of 90% of the surface area of the joint.

Spedeworth certificated cages are permitted, built to documented specification.

It is important there are no large gaps between any part of the cage and the body shell. Roll hoops and connecting bars must not be dropped from the roof, and must support the A & B pillars. It is permitted to move the ‘B’ pillar hoop rearwards to protect the driver’s head, though please bear in mind the seat should occupy its original position.

A 3mm hole must be drilled in the roll bars on the nearside front upright approx. 150mm above the floor and facing inwards so that an inspection can be made of the tube thickness and /or certification disc fitted.

Where more than one size of tube is employed in the roll cage, then this will also have to be drilled in an accessible place to determine the thickness.

Any part of the cage which can come into contact with the driver’s body must be suitably padded.

You may strengthen the rear of the turret with 2 bars supported to the roll cage.

Hillman Imp only: The cage may be extended from the dash cross bar to the top of the shock absorber/spring mounts in the “boot” area. The term “boot” employed here, refers to the front luggage compartment. These bars must conform to the same dimensions as the remainder of the cage.

19 – NUMBERS AND SIGNWRITING

The driver’s allocated competition number must be displayed on both sides of the car. It must also be on the roof, with the base of the number at the nearside, or on the boot lid. Alternatively, a roof fin plate may be used. The minimum size of numbering (except fin plates) is 300mm high with 50mm strokes.

Any colour can be used providing that it has a contrasting background. They must have a professional appearance.

The colour scheme/design should be in keeping with that of the original period.

The driver’s name must appear plainly on both sides of the bonnet or roof curvature, or across the sun visor, and all other signwriting must be confined to the sponsor’s, mechanics’ or owner’s name. Professional motif paintings are allowed, however, airbrushing is not allowed or a blend of colour graphics. Advertising stickers or transfers are allowed. Stickers, drawings or wording which may be considered offensive are not allowed – the scrutineer or steward’s decision is final as to what constitutes “offensive”. 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 10



20 – SAFETY EQUIPMENT

• Helmets must be of a minimum standard as directed by British Oval Racing Safety Executive (B.O.R.S.E). These are FIA8860-2004, Snell SA2005, Snell SA2010, SFI Foundation 31.1A, SFI Foundation 31.2A. The E2205 European standard helmet may be used in Fibreglass, Carbon or Tri-Composite form only i.e. NO POLYCARBONATE helmets are allowed. It is important that the helmet fits the driver correctly. Shatterproof goggles/visors must be worn although tinted visors are not advisable. Your helmet must display the current ORCi (ORC10) sticker.

• Neck braces are recommended.

• Fireproof balaclavas are MANDATORY and must be marked appropriately.

• Fire retardant gloves are MANDATORY and must be marked appropriately.

• A minimum of 3” (75mm) wide safety belts (1.75” (40mm) sub-strap) are mandatory. This must be a full five point buckle release harness (including NASCAR type) with sub-strap and must be fitted and bolted to the floor and/or the roll cage. Shoulder belts with a sternum protection latch are highly recommended. The sub-strap must be used at all times and all belts must connect to the quick release buckle. In the case of NASCAR lever latch buckles it is advisable to fit a secondary means of detent to prevent overall sleeves accidentally unhooking buckles during racing. A small section of Tubegrip elasticated bandage slid over the hooked buckle serves this purpose. Special attention must be paid to the condition of seat belts and fixings once fitted.

An extra bar is to be fitted to roll cage behind driver’s seat approx 4” below shoulder height of driver. Your seat belts may be fixed to this bar. The bar is to be of roll cage material specification.



Following recent research made by leading safety harness manufacturers, new information has been made available with regard to the best way to fit your safety harness, which will further ensure your safety. Please study the diagrams below to ensure your safety harness is fitted correctly. 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 11





• Drivers must wear bright coloured racing overall type clothing of flame retardant Proban or a high specification material and this must be maintained in a clean and tidy condition in view of the public. N.B. If wet weather clothing is used this must be worn IN ADDITION TO and NOT INSTEAD OF the regulation flame retardant overall type of clothing described above.



• A quick release cloth window net must be fitted to the driver’s door window aperture. The netting should have holes not larger than 7.5cm or 3” wide. It should come down level with the steering wheel, and should be flexible and easily removable separate to the movement of the door.



• A 1Kg Dry Powder Gauge Fire Extinguisher is highly recommended and if fitted, this should be in a tube with a spring top and should be within easy reach of the driver. Old type BCF (green) type extinguishers are not allowed. All tow vehicles, must carry a minimum of a 2kg fire extinguisher dry powder or gas, which must be within easy reach of the driver and mechanics at all times, especially when refueling.

21 – RULES OF RACING

Racing is to be strictly non-contact. Minor instances of contact, where deemed to be avoidable or deliberate, will be punishable by fines and meeting bans.

Rolling starts shall be used.

Heats shall be of 15-20 laps duration, finals 20-25 laps, and meetings shall consist of two such heats and one final, all to be agree at the Promoters discretion. The Championship can be of a longer distance.

22 – RECEIVERS

From 1st March 2013, drivers must use the approved receiver communication system.

This system facilitates communication from the Race Steward direct to the driver via an in-ear headphone system.

The concept of this system is to reduce race damage, from two points of view. Firstly, drivers can be warned of stricken cars on the track to avoid crashed or immobilised cars being hit. Secondly, driver conduct can be monitored ‘live’ and drivers warned that they are being watched closely or subject to a penalty.

The approved supplier of the receiver system is Hoosier Tyres, contact number 01293 863 579. The cost of the system is £82, excluding headphones. You may supply your own headphones or purchase ones from Hoosier.

The system must be working at all times whilst you are in your car. If your system is not working for any reason whatsoever prior to the start of a race, then you are not allowed to take part, 2014 Incarace Classic Hot Rod Regulations Page 12



23 – TRANSPONDERS:
The My-Laps race timing system will be in operation for Classic Hot Rods but this will be mandatory from the 2014 season.

Please note that all of the above rules are subject to change in respect of Health & Safety requirements.
