No Change until 2010....

Motor Sports Council: 9 February 2006


Rallies Committee to reconsider K37 proposals

At yesterday's meeting of the Motor Sports Council (Thursday 9 February), representatives of the MSA Rallies Committee presented their initial findings, following a period of consultation into the proposed revision of rule K37 - the technical regulations for special stage rally cars.

The original proposal had been submitted in an attempt to bring UK regulations closer in line with internationally accepted regulations established by the FIA.

The Committee reported that the extensive and welcomed feedback from the rallying community had confirmed that there is a need for a thorough review of these regulations. However, the original proposals as set out for consultation have not been endorsed by the subsequent feedback and will be reconsidered.

The members of the Motor Sports Council endorsed the principle of moving the sport towards standard production touring cars and low volume specialist production cars.

However, it was agreed that any regulation changes concerning new cars will not be brought into effect any earlier than 2008, while all existing vehicles will remain eligible to compete until at least 1 January 2010.

"We have rigorous and established regulatory procedures," explained Graham Stoker, Chairman of the Motor Sports Council. "The consultation process is the ultimate safeguard that ensures that no regulations make it into the Blue Book without very careful analysis. On this occasion, the Committee went in one direction and the sport itself - those very people that the Committee represents - made its feelings known. That is right and proper and a good example of the process in action."

"We have established that these regulations do need attention," confirmed John Richardson, Chairman of the Rallies Committee, "and we remain committed to moving the sport towards production vehicles, but over a longer timeframe than was at first envisaged.

"We must acknowledge that a number of issues have been raised and on behalf of the Rallies Committee, we would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the debate, but we would also like to apologise for any confusion that may have been caused. We will report back to Council with our proposals in June, after which it will again go out to consultation."
