Minutes of Meetings and Decisions

B 1/32 Car standards and policy

The approved changes apply from 1st January 2018, Rejected changes are shown with a grey background

B1 1/32 Sticker front wheel diameter reduced

 For 32 classes that allow "sticker" fronts, the diameter shall be reduced to 12.7 mm diameter.

Handbook amendment

The 14mm minimum shall be replaced by 12.7mm minimum in INTRO 32  body regulations 7.   
In 1/32 classes 2 to 5 (Sports/GT: Saloon : National Club Team Championship Sports/GT: Super Production )      The Minimum front tyre diameter - Rotating tyres 12.7 mm, "Sticker" fronts 14mm shall be replaced by  Minimum front tyre diameter - 12.7 mm

Explanation - This brings the BSCRA rules in line with the rest of the world's rules on sticker front diameter and if passed, along with proposal C1, will reduce confusion about what size wheels are needed along with the need to only have one size of front wheel. However, the proposal will allow the front of the body to be mounted lower, much of the rest of the world has other restrictions on how low the front of the body can be mounted.

B2 Scale colour schemes in F1

Scale colour schemes shall be required in the F1 class at the National Finals.

Handbook amendment

Add to the F1 rules

"For the National Finals Meeting, F1 cars must be in scale colours.  The colour schemes raced on a Grand Prix car since 1st January 1980 (but not necessarily  on that particular  body) must be used. Thus must include the appropriate logos on the sides and engine cover."

B3 1/32 bodies must be at least 2 colours

The body must be painted in at least 2 different colours in all 1/32 classes

Handbook amendment

Add to the rules in all 1/32 classes "The body must be painted in at least 2 different colours"   
(NOTE  this is already a requirement in all 1/24 classes)

B4 1/32 saloon reverts to 2016 bodyshell rules

1/32 saloon shall revert to the 2016 body policy.

Approved body list amendment - The new 1/32 saloon list  will include all the bodyshells on the December 2016 list (for example the CAT Dodge Daytona) and any 1/32 saloon approved for 2017

B5 1/32 Sports/GT to use ISRA bodyshells only

1/32 sports GT bodyshells shall be replaced by the ISRA 1/32 Eurosport bodyshell. The previous version of the ISRA 1/32 Eurosport bodyshell will also be permitted. When a new ISRA 1/32 bodyshell is approved (ISRA approval is updated every 3 years, usually in October), the new shell will become eligible from 1st January after the shell is ISRA approved.
Main and Clubman grade drivers may use bodyshells from the existing BSCRA approved list, but will only be eligible for overall BOC championship points or racing in overall National finals if they are using the "ISRA" shell.
