Little feedback
Remaining on the course: Dave has suggested perhaps need to reword.

Some discussion over the wording.
From Bernie re beadlocks

1. New subsection a) for standard and challenge classes, mechanical beadlocks
must be certified to LVVTA standard.

38.10 delete as duplicates
Modifications to body, Standard class
Remove 7.9
George bought up a contentious issue re body mods but needs more
thought. Needs to go into pending rules. There are inconsistencies in the
classes re body mods
44.1 Subsection d) re spare wheel not required
A vehicle jack and jacking plate needs to be carried. Why still
needs to be there?
Possible we are setting up having completely disabled vehicles
on track that would be difficult to recover if we removed requirement for
jack etc


Dave will reword
Rules for 2012 be approved with changes
Peter Vahry
Moved George that review body modifications for classes and add
to pending changes


Future events

our rules.

Has paid for airfares. The idea is to get rules nation wide accepted
and chance to meet SI competitors.

Organiser Steven Reed
Some changes to rules with rear mounted radiators allowed in Challenge
If ASR run that alters the class dramatically
Cannot be sanctioned as a 4x4 Challenges supported event.
External forces that require access to DoC land to be road legal
may change ideas in future

Rule compliance
