Kingdom Stages - Final Instructions

Your start number is on the entry list.

 

The Serious Bit…..

 

Following previous complaints from locals, any competition vehicle seen driving on the road outside the venue immediately prior to or during the event will be going home shortly afterwards NO EXCEPTIONS – do NOT repeat NOT go out to “warm up the tyres/brakes/diffs/whatever” . Crail will be busy this weekend, we don’t need more PR issues please!! Please make sure your driver and service crew are presented with this info too. Thanks.

 

Damage – please note that if you damage fences or any other property you will be liable for the first £350 per incident. We have had

to pay out £1000 for repairs to fencing incurred at the last event, we won’t do it again.

 

Speed limit in the service area – is 10mph – stick to it please.

 

 

The Good Bit…..

 

Thank you for your entry, the response has been extraordinary. With 100 spaces available we never dreamed we would end up with over 110 crews applying to enter. If you find you will be unable to attend, please call the Entries Secretary IMMEDIATELY on 07802

551 297 and we will fill your space. Assuming we can replace you, we guarantee a full refund. Thanks to the reserves for their patience, we will do all we can to get you a run.

 

100 cars + 8 stages is a big challenge in November, so please can all crews do all they can to keep the event running to time. Over the day we may have to make decisions that will help the many but may disappoint a few.

Litter: Black bin liners will be issued with the start pack. Put your rubbish in the bag, and put it in a bin or take it away with you. Especially, do NOT leave empty fuel containers or cans of used oil; take them away with you. Service on a groundsheet, and clear up any spills of oil or other fluids. Competitors are held responsible for the actions of their service crews, and may be penalised, up to and including exclusion.

 

Refuelling : there is a designated refueling area marked on the Service area map

 

Airfield on Friday night: You may stay on the airfield – a charge of £10 will be levied by the landowner for anything left overnight

– that includes groundsheets and cones.

 

Service Crews: Arrival after 08:00am is likely to incur a parking charge by the landowner.

Please note that if you wish to enter the Trophy Rally, you will need to be re-scrutineered, so contact Rally HQ.

 

Out of Bounds Areas: Some areas of the airfield, including all buildings other than in use by rally personnel, are out of bounds.

The Control Tower is a prohibited area to everyone. Any unauthorized people found in these areas will cause the associated crew to be excluded. There are clearly marked spectator areas. Competitors, service crews and spectators must stay off the crops, and must also keep off the bales and fences. Competitors may be penalised for the actions of service crews, friends, etc.

 

Quad Bikes, mopeds, motorcycles, scooters, go-peds, etc. are forbidden in Service Areas, due to irresponsible driving at previous events (see also MSA guidelines), and may not be used to recce the stages. Don’t bring them. Competitors may be penalised for the actions of service crews, friends, etc.

 

 

Lunch: The burger van will give priority to serving marshals before competitors and service crews, especially during the lunch break, so that they can get back to their posts in good time. Please be patient, they have been standing out in the cold while you have

been sitting in your nice cosy car.

 

Missing Details If you left a lot of blank space on your entry form – like co-driver name and address, next of kin name and address and contact details – please take a couple of minutes use the online system to update it if that is how you generated the entry, or send that information to the entries secretary, who may be able to transfer it to your entry form. Email to treasurer@glenrothes- msc.com  or ring 01383 622782 (not after 9pm please). That will save holding up a hundred people behind you in the signing-on queue on Saturday morning.

Entrants, competitors and service crew members should be aware of their own and other people’s safety and well

1. All entrants should have an environmental ground-sheet in place before work commences on the vehicle.

2. All service vehicles should have an environmental spill-kit, for use in the event of liquid spillage. (Competing cars should also carry such a kit.)

3. Fire extinguishers should be readily available at all times when vehicles are to be worked on, particularly in the event of any welding or grinding being carried out and when vehicles are being refuelled.

4. Vehicles should be supported by axle stands, chassis sill stands or ramps, all with recommended base plates, when

raised in the air by trolley or any other types of jack. Engines should not be run when the vehicle is raised on stands. No other work on the car should be attempted, when raising or lowering of the car is taking place.

5. If re-fuelling is permitted in the Service Area, this should be the last operation to be carried out before the vehicles leave. The vehicle should be off any support stands, have all four wheels on the ground, have all other work ceased and have no occupants, when re-fuelling commences. Ideally re-fuelling should be by hand pumping, rather than from hand held containers.

6. Spillage of any liquid should be contained immediately by the crew concerned.

and be kept from any source of ignition.
