ORCi NATIONAL BANGER PRESS RELEASE
The ORCi Technical Sub Committees met last week to discuss any rules changes for 2011.
These will be published in due course, however, there is an additional rule that will be implemented this year and will apply from 1st July 2010.
This new rule was based on the findings of four cars that were presented for scrutineering at Crasharama and were ‘overbuilt’ to the current specifications.
The ORCi does not wish to see Bangers with chassis strengthening and additional steel strengthening which goes well beyond the scope of the rule book.
The new rule reads as follows :
If a car is presented for PRE-RACE scrutineering and found to be armoured or strengthened and cannot be corrected on the day, the driver will receive an immediate 12 month ORCi ban. Please note, this includes engine or gearbox suspensions mounts that are over the top and also includes distributor and cam belt guards that cannot be corrected on the day and be re-presented for scrutineering.
If the car is subject of POST-RACE scrutineering checks and fails in any of the above noted areas, the driver will receive an immediate 12 month ORCi ban, irrespective of whether the problem could have been corrected on the day.
Please note that there will be no exceptions. This trend of the overbuilding of cars has to be stamped out immediately.
