At the last NASA Chairman’s meeting car numbers and their design were discussed. Increasingly over the last few years
numbers have been used that do not conform to section 8 of the class rule books. We were advised that if Lap Scorer are not able to read your club identification and numbers due to this, then you may
not be awarded points. This is applicable at any club or meeting. As a reminder section 8 can be viewed here – this is an extract from the class rule books – where all the diagrams can be
viewed. All class rule books can be found electronically here
Please not that the date of pre -season scrutineering has had to change due to unforeseen circumstances. It will now take place on the following weekend. Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th

weather an alternative location will be provided.
