    Hi all,
    We are planing to run in a few races this year. To start we plan to run the invitational race in Anneau du Rhin in France as we won’t be able to finish the car before.
    How does it work with scrutineering for the invitational races? Will it be done by UK club officials? Is is maybe even a bad idea and we should start with a race in the UK? What are your experiences?

    The “MSA Competition Car Log Book” might be a relevant issue maybe? As I have understood we will get one before the first race (probably before/during scrutineering?)
    Maybe we won’t need one outside the UK? Do we need something similar for France and Belgium?

    It will be the Belgian scrutineers who carry out the checks at their races. They usually manage to find something that does not cause a problem in the UK.
    If it’s the first time the car will have been scrutinised I would try and get it looked at before you go by a set of experienced eyes to ensure that you don’t get caught out.

    Thanks a lot for your reply.
    I inquired at the Belgium Club as well. Fred suggest that as a guest team we shouldn’t worry too much about technical regulations. Safety is obviously very important though. Let’s see. We’ll build the car to our best abilities and try to get it scrutineered as early as possible on the race week-end. Worst case we are based only one hour from the track and can try to fix whatever pops-up.

    Don’t forget that the Belgians usually run to full FIA safety rules, so you’ll need balaclava, vest, long johns, socks etc all in Nomex. You might need a minimum 2l extinguisher, I’ve known a UK 1.75 litre one failed in the past (different series from C1s).. If you work to the safety regs on the http://www.roadbook.be site for the Spa Classic weekend you won’t go far wrong….

    Does anyone have a definitive regulation on roll cage padding needed for Spa? Can’t find anything on the C! site/facebook.
    Just need to know do we need proper FIA padding and if so what precisely needs to be padded?
    Thanks

    Hi Paddy
    It definitely has to be the FIA padding and it needs to be on the cage where the driver can make contact with it.

    OK thanks. Realistically is that just the side upper and lower bars or the front/diagonal as well as shown in the pic? Expensive stuff!
    thanks
