Standard Car Class for 2014

Hi all. We announced at the last HRA club meeting that in 2014 we would be introducing a Standard Car Class to our events and here are the series regulations.
The intention of the class is to try and bring a cheaper form of rallying to the club.
We all know that our competition costs are rising and we hope that we may attract members back into our fantastic sport.
We also propose that the class will be made into a series with trophies awarded at year end.
Participants will need to register for the series...please send an email to
"classicstatue AT bigpond.com.au" with  driver and car details.
Please contact Rob Cranston by email or 03 95630977 / 0414560688 if you have questions.
