Log Cards
This was the first event where we used the Standard Car Challenge Vehicle Log Card which all Rally Competitors must have.
Your Log Card must be kept with your competing vehicle and produced when your vehicle is scrutineered for a Rally event.
It is not required for Autocross.
It is the competitors responsibility to retain and look after the Log Card.
If you change vehicles a new Log Card with be required...please inform me and I will post one out.
The Scrutiny panel have expressed some concern that they are unable to identify a Scrutineer who has inspected a vehicle
on some forms where a Regional Scrutiny has taken place.
They have asked us to publish the following.

“Note:
Scrutiny of these vehicles will be carried out by a scrutineer who’s name appears on the current CAMS Scrutineers list published on the VICRally CAMS website
Scrutiny of the vehicle shall be as per the scrutiny sheet for Road events.
All check boxes must be marked X indicating that the item for inspection has been inspected and complies with current regulations or requirements.
Any item that does not meet current requirements must be corrected before the scrutineer can endorse the vehicle as having NAFF.
The satisfactory presentation of the vehicle and with the endorsement of NAFF, shall be signed and dated by the inspecting scrutineer.
The Scrutineers Cams licence number should also appear on the completed form.
A readable signature shall also appear on the Scrutiny Form.
The HRA will administer the processes involved in the issuing of the card.”
