    VCMC AutoX Cup Supplemental Regulations

    These regulations apply only to VCMC AutoX Cup events in addition to the 2013 Supplemental Regulations (below).

    CLASS GROUPINGS: All cars shall run and compete according to the following groupings:
    • Novice (New members with 3 or fewer autocross events prior to 2013)
    • Open Pax (Open to all competitors from any class; only the first 3 runs count)
    • Stock (SS, AS, BS, CS, DS, ES, FS, GS, HS)
    • Non-Stock 1 (SSP, ASP, BSP, CSP, DSP, ESP, FSP)
    • Non-Stock 2 (SM, SMF, SSM, XP, CP, DP, EP, FP, GP, AM, BM, CM, DM, EM, FM)
    • Non-Stock 3 (STF, STC, STS, STX, STU, STR)
    • Ladies (Open to female competitors from any class)

    Road tire vehicles (RTA, RTF, RTR, and all non ST* cars with road tires) shall compete in the above groups and will have an additional PAX modifier of 0.975 applied to their respective base class PAX.

    SCORING: The fastest official timed runs, plus penalties, will be used for scoring for all groups with the exception of the OPAX group. For the OPAX group, only the first 3 timed runs will count towards the competitor’s results. Times will be indexed using 2013 PAX factors, as published by Rick Ruth at http://home.comcast.net/~paxrtp/rtp2013.html.

    When the road tire multiplier (.975) is used in conjunction with a PAX/RTP Index factor, the multiplier and the index factor will first be multiplied and the resulting number will be the new Index factor for that particular situation.

    EXAMPLE: RTF (HS) car has raw time of 59.300 and HS has a PAX/RTP index factor of .804:
    • .975 x .804 = .7839
    • 59.300 x .7839 = 46.485 final index adjusted time


    AWARDS
    : As described in the event announcement.

    POINTS AND AWARDS: Series standings are determined by a competitors best four (4) of six (6) results. Results are not transferable between run groups. At the end of the series prizes and trophies will be awarded to the top competitors in each group. Points will determine a competitor’s place in their group and be calculated as per section 5.3 (E) of the current CACC Autoslalom Rulebook.

    VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION: It is HIGHLY recommended that all competition vehicles are identified according to section 4.2(B) of the current CACC Autoslalom Rulebook. Numbers conforming to the SCCA National Solo Rules section 3.7 are also acceptable. Vehicle numbers may be a maximum of 3 digits (numbers 1 to 999 are acceptable). However, it is strongly recommended that the primary driver’s number be selected from the range 1 to 99, with the second driver being distinguished by a leading 1. As an example, if car #55 in DSP had two drivers, the second driver would be #155. Only one set of numbers may visible during official timed runs. Shoe polish and masking tape are acceptable forms of identification. Penalties incorrectly assigned due to a lack of proper vehicle identification as described above may be reversed at the discretion of the event chair. It is the responsibility of the competitor to prove that penalties were incorrectly assigned.

    2013 Supplemental Regulations

    Unless otherwise noted, these supplemental regulations will apply to all 2013 VCMC Autoslalom events.

    COMPETITOR ELIGIBILITY: All competitors must possess a valid driver’s license and be at least 16 years of age on the day of the event.

All spectators and competitors under the age of 19 must complete the ASN Canada FIA Minor Participant and Annual Parental Consent Waiver. These forms are available online at http://www.asncanada.com/ and will be available at the event.

    SPEED LIMITS: The off-course speed limit is 15km/h. This applies to all pit, grid and staging areas, as well as any site access roads. Local speed limits are also in effect (50km/h) along Ford Rd. Anyone caught violating these speed limits is subject to IMMEDIATE DISQUALIFICATION AND WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE SITE.

    CHILDREN AND PETS: The pre-grid and course areas are off-limits to small children and animals. Pets must be adequately leashed and under control at all times.

    TIMING AREA(S): Official areas and vehicles are for authorized event personnel only.

    SITE AMENITIES: Fuel, air and helmets may not be readily available at the event site. Competitors must be prepared to make other arrangements should these items be unavailable.

    HELMETS: Helmets are required for all competitors and passengers. Refer to section 3.4(C) of the current CACC Autoslalom rulebook for acceptable helmet standards.

    WORK REQUIREMENT: All competitors must complete their work assignments to be eligible for event and championship points. Failure to complete a work assignment will result in a DNF for all of the competitor’s runs.

    OUT OF GROUP RUNS: Competitors needing to run outside of their assigned run group must inform the Event Chair in writing prior to the day of the event with adequate justification. Out of run groups shall noted on the scoreboard. Competitors running out of group may be subject to protest if a weather change influences results in their favor.

    OUT OF GROUP WORKING: Competitors needing to work outside of their assigned group must notify the Chief of Workers prior to the first affected work group time.

    CAR CLASSIFICATION: Refer to the current SCCA National Solo Rules sections 12 through 18 and Appendix A for vehicle preparation/modification allowances.

    INDEXING: Indexed run times shall be calculated using the 2013 PAX values as published by Rick Ruth at http://home.comcast.net/~paxrtp/rtp2013.html.

    MEMBERSHIP: All competitors must be current VCMC members in good standing.

    NOVICE: A competitor who has participated in 3 or fewer Solosport events as of January 1st of this year shall be deemed a Novice. All competitive, test-and-tune and non-competitive Solosport events and schools count towards Novice status. The Event Chair reserves the right to change a competitor’s Novice status following a review of the competitor’s motorsports history.

    PROTESTS: Protests will be handled as described in the CACC GCR sections 12 and 13. The protest fee shall be $200 payable in cash. The minimum amount retained shall be $100.

    RESPECT THE SITE: Please do not litter. Keep your pit area safe. Any and all fluids removed from a vehicle must be taken with you at the end of the event day. Smoking is not permitted on site.

    RESPECT THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Respect the local residents, we are guests at this site and we must act accordingly. No speeding, burnouts or loud stereos will be tolerated at any time. You will be asked to leave if you do not behave appropriately.

    PASSENGERS: A maximum of 1 passenger is permitted during official timed runs and/or fun runs. Novice drivers may only carry senior drivers as passengers. Passengers must only be carried in the front seat of the vehicle, wear an approved helmet, seatbelt, and have signed the appropriate waiver forms.

    NOISE LEVELS: All vehicles must be muffled with a maximum allowable sound level of 92dB, as measured at 50 feet from the edge of the course. Competitors exceeding this limit will be given one warning, and will be permitted to make modifications to reduce sound. Competitors will be disqualified if they cannot comply with this sound limit. Final judgment of the acceptability of sound levels, regardless of the measured sound level (including, but not limited to tire noise), rests with the Event Chair and designated event officials.

    MULTIPLE DRIVER CARS: Multiple competitors may drive the same vehicle during competition with a maximum of two drivers per car per run heat. Within each heat, the two drivers must alternate their runs. For example, driver 1 will complete a single run and then allow driver 2 to complete a single run, alternating back and forth for all competitition runs. If multiple driver cars are found to be completing all of their competition runs consecutively, this will result in an immediate disqualification of both drivers. It is strongly suggested that dual drivers run in numerical order. For example, between two drivers in one car, driver XX will run before driver 1XX.

    EQUIPMENT AND FACILITY DAMAGE: A flat fee of $150 is to be paid to the VCMC immediately upon contact with ANY equipment (excluding cones) or the facility. This includes, but is not limited to, the timing equipment and cables.

    EXHIBITION DRIVING: Competitors must keep their vehicle under control at all times. No doughnuts, excessive tire smoke, or exhibition driving at any time. Failure to follow these rules will result in IMMEDIATE DISQUALIFICATION.
