Calendar for 2011 rule changes

Post by Claude Leglise » Tue Jun 01, 2010 3:37 pm

Every year, we have an opportunity to tweak, update and modify our competition rules. The calendar for this year is as follows:
August 10: Deadline to submit rules change proposals
September 1: Proposals published in the Nugget
September 25: Open meeting for comments
October 5: 2011 rules finalized, approved by DEC and ratified by the Board
November 1: Approved revisions published in the Nugget
December 1: Updated rule book available for download on the website.

The Drivers Events Committee (DEC) for the 2011 rules proposals consists of the following individuals:
AX Chair: Joe Lee and Chris Hamilton
TT Chair: Mike Cullinan and Warren Walker
A GGR member chosen by the AX participants: TBD
A GGR member chosen by the TT participants: John Tavernetti
Zone 7 Rep: Sharon Neidel

I will chair the committee in my capacity of Comp Director.

As the "TBD" above indicates, we do not yet have a representative of the Autocross community. The work load is not onerous, but this is an important responsibility. Will a volunteer please stand-up?

Respond here?....

I would like to propose that the wording for section 4.3A be amended and clarified. Some people interpret the section to mean that 2 driver cars in the same run group are allowed. I would like the rule changed (if that is how most currently see it) to clearly state that with 2 driver cars - each participant must drive in a different run group.

here's the current text:

4.3A Autocross
a. Cars shall be gridded in groups.
b. The first driver of a car must run within the assigned run group. Second drivers will have their own group line, and should run before the last driver in the next run group. Each driver will receive only one run per cycle of the grid, except for official reruns and except for instructor drives.

thanks,

Ken,

Thanks for your thoughts. You get to be the first one to suggest something.

I will start a new forum for suggested rule changes, and will transfer your input there.

Grady Carter has volunteered to represent the autocross community at the DEC, so we now have a full house. Thanks Grady.

Let the suggestions roll in.

PAX multiplication factors need to be addressed...Lower classed cars such as AX 16 and AX 15 seem to be disadvantaged currently...or AX1-5 seem to have a distinct advantage currently.
PAX champions are coming from the upper classes just about every year.
thanks :D
