1300 STOCKCAR RULE ANNOUNCEMENT

Added Thursday 31st May 2018

The 1300 Stock Car Association have been reviewing lots of comments about the new car of 64 Mark Whybra which was debuted at Ipswich on Monday.

1300 SCA officials went through the car very thoroughly and as the rules stand at the moment it is legal to them.

However, following a meeting of the association it is not felt that this car is the way we want to see the formula develop. 1300 Stock Cars are currently booming within the 1300 SCA tracks as a whole with some circuits reporting record turnouts and we want to see that trend continue.

Whilst drivers may want to copy what Mark has done for 2018, the association wants to make drivers aware in advance that there will be rules put in place which will make this car illegal in 2019 so anyone building a car doing what he has done will not get much use out of this. Mark is fully aware of the association's stand on this.

Rule changes for 2019 will include a minimum height of what the iron will be allowed to be and also a maximum width that a car can be. These rule changes will enable the formula to stay where it currently is as the 1300 SCA do not believe the formula needs advancing technically at the moment.

The association has made the unusual stance of making this statement about its intended rule changes early as we do not want to see more cars built like this throughout 2018 for their owners to find in the winter that they will be illegal. We feel it is better to let drivers know what we are intending to do and if they decide to build a car like Mark's they will be doing so in the knowledge that it will be illegal for 2019.
