Minutes of Meetings and Decisions
2017 Proposals -
There is no change to these rules for 2018
E 1/32 Nationals
E1 Area Nats Qualifying Places
The current allocation of Nats places is based on the number of area members in each driver grade. Two alternatives have been proposed. Areas have already been asked to complete their 2018 area rounds by Sunday 11 February 2018 so as to allow competitors more time to make arrangements before the Nats.
Option 1 -
The 1/32nd Nationals be made open to all BSCRA registered British members. In the event of an unmanageable entry size the council may use its discretion to restrict numbers by use of the ranking list or similar means of identifying the most deserving entries on merit.
Section 2.5 Allocation of National Qualifiers to be deleted
Option 2 -
That the place allocation system be changed for the 1/32nd Nationals (Saloon, F1 & Sports). Instead of allocation of places being based on total of members (except reigning champions & BOC qualifiers) it is calculated from the number of members who have competed in at least 1 of the race meetings used to select qualifiers for the Nationals by the second Sunday in February.
Section 2.5 Allocation of National Qualifiers section c
"13 places in each class shall be allocated in as near as possible direct proportion to the Area's membership ........... The remaining places shall be allocated in proportion to the Area's membership eligible for the Main Grade (including master grade drivers) who have not qualified in (a) or (b) above.."
To be replaced by
"The remaining places shall be allocated in proportion to the number of BSCRA members registered in the area who have competed in at least one of the area's qualifying meetings for the current years Nationals by the second Sunday in February.
and not qualified in (a) or (b) above. "
