Cars from last year will be allocated a number from last years finishing order). Entrants new to the proxy rally will be allocated numbers in sequential order upon receipt of entry. 13. Tracks and Hosting a Round a) Tracks are to be purpose built single or dual lane rally tracks. Multi lane race tracks with integral rally circuits are acceptable, provided the track is considered 'tight and twisty' and no long straights. Under no circumstances are rounds to be conducted on race circuits. Tracks are to have smooth surfaces. Elevations encouraged but extreme rough track surfaces that disadvantage some brands of car are not welcome. We are looking for a wide variety of makes and models and not a field dominated by one model only. c) The intention is to run the rounds at no longer than at 2 week intervals. Your round should be run by the next week end after the cars have arrived at your track. Forwarding on of the box of cars should be in time to arrive at the next host in plenty of time to run the round. d) Each days driving should be reported back to the forum when completed. e) An official score sheet should be completed and forwarded via e-mail to the director at the conclusion of your round. A template will be forward to you by the director before the commencement of your round. f) The postal addresses of next round host and reimbursement for postage costs will be forwarded to hosts by the series director at the conclusion of your round if required. g) Track owners are to run cars against the clock for a minimum of 8 minutes per round. You can break this up into as many stages as you like, for example, stage 1 on a Friday night, stages 2 and 3 on Saturday night and stage 4 on Sunday afternoon. An additional reputable driver (co driver) may be used to assist in driving at least one stage but must complete a full cycle of cars through that stage. The co- driver must be suitably familiar with the hosts track. Stages can vary in length and direction, just as long as the total time for the fastest cars is approximately 8 minutes. If you are unsure how many laps to run to total 8 minutes of driving - work out the best lap time you expect from a car in this field. Say 6.00 secs. How many laps will the fastest cars have to do be on track for 8 minutes. 8 minutess is 480 seconds so 80 laps total is a fair guess. 14. DISCALIMER Entrants should understand that no responsibility is accepted by the organisers, hosts or participants of the OzRally Proxy Series 20010/11 for the loss and/or damage to your cars or parts/equipment supplied either before, during or after the series is conducted. 15.
