All cars must be 10 years old or more, ie: registered prior to September 2000
A fire extinguisher (powder or foam, minimum 1kg capacity) must be securely fitted to the floor in the front passenger footwell, or rollcage, and be within easy reach of the driver
A rollcage, race seat and harness can be fitted without being included in the overall vehicle cost
The engines fitted to the cars must remain as the same type and capacity as fitted when new
The original fuel tank, battery position and bodywork must be retained
The battery must have a solid cover securely fitted to ensure the terminals cannot come into contact with anything which could create a short or any further damage
Exhaust systems can be modified but must remain below 105dba, not run inside the car or protrude outside the bodywork
The windscreen must be retained, but side windows can be replaced by polycarbonate / perspex
Interiors can be removed but full dashboards must be retained and have a working speedo, trip & mileometer
All lights and exterior mirrors must be removed, although two rear brake lights must be fitted in the rear window aperture so they are visible by all following cars
Airbags must be disabled or disconnected
There are no restrictions on tyres
No additional nudge / bumper bars are allowed. This is a non contact event
Cars do not need to have an MoT or road tax, but in such cases must be trailered to the event

Cars can be painted, decorated and themed, but any additions must be securely fixed. No additional lights with glass lenses can be fitted
Any car can be purchased by anyone for 500 after the event has finished

If Teams have any queries regarding eligibility (of any car, part, modification etc), they should ask for advice and confirmation from, DaveG, Lee5, Mechell or Darin


Event Timetable:

09:30 – 10:00: Team Registration / Allocation of Team Numbers
10:00 - 10:30: Drivers Briefing & Wristband
10:30 – 11:30: Practice
11:30 – 12:15: Qualifying
12:15 – 13:00: Lunch break
13:00 – 17:00: MLR500
18:00 – Late: Party


The Event:

All team members – drivers and mechanics - must go to the MLR500 marquee to “sign-in” on the day, BEFORE 10am and complete an Indemnity Form and obtain a wristband. Latecomers will be excluded
Only team members with wristbands, marshalls and the event organisers are allowed in the paddock during practice, qualifying and the MLR500 event
All team drivers must attend a driver’s briefing. A driver's wristband will be issued after the briefing
All drivers will be required to keep their arms, legs and hands covered at all times. Race suits are advised.
All drivers must wear a helmet and seat belt (or harness) when in the car
Once briefed there will be a one hour practice session where all drivers must complete a minimum of 3 sighting laps to gain a feel for the car on circuit
All drivers will be given a wristband after they have completed their practice laps. No drivers will be allowed to take part in the MLR500 event without the correct wristbands
The Qualifying session will run one car at a time and will consist of one lap from a standing start. Any driver can be allocated by their team to set the qualifying time.
No passengers will be allowed in the cars
There must be a minimum of SIX driver changes during the event. If a team does not complete the full number of changes they will not be eligible to win the MLR500. These will be recorded by a marshall and it is the teams responsibility to ensure this has been observed and recorded by a marshall
Drivers must drive for a minimum of 15 minutes in the car after each driver change
Speed limit in the pit lane, refuelling area and paddock is 5mph. Any cars considered to be breaking the speed limit will incur a time penalty of 2 minutes which will be taken in the Paddock after the refuelling, driver change, or car repair has been completed
Car engines must be switched off during all driver changes and refuelling
Refuelling must be completed in the refuelling area only. This area will be signed.
Refuelling must be by 20ltr ‘jerry cans’ with the proper spout or funnel to avoid spillage
No fuel pumps are allowed for refuelling
Only the driver is allowed to refuel the car – no other team members are allowed in the refuelling area
Driver changes and car repairs must take place in the team area in the paddock
The MLR500 event, pit lane and paddock will be marshalled throughout the day
No form of car-to-pit radio or telephone communication is allowed


Safety:

This is predominantly a non contact event and will be run with safety as the paramount concern
Although we understand that some cars will come into contact with each other, all drivers are expected to drive to ensure this remains at a minimum
Any drivers seen ‘ramming’ or perpetually hitting other cars will be black flagged and sent to the sin bin for 5 minutes.
If the same car regardless of the driver, is sent to the sin bin 3 times that team will be excluded from taking any further part in the event.
Observe the pitlane and paddock speed limit of 5mph at all times


Trophies:
As soon as the results have been confirmed the trophies will be awarded in the MLR500 marquee to;

The Winning Team
Favourite MLR500 Car


MLR500 Party:

The party will start at approx 18:00 in the MLR500 marquee. There will be a bar open throughout the evening and a great selection of hot and cold food available. The band will be playing several times during the party.


Post Event:

All cars must be removed from the venue after the event – whether on the Saturday night or the Sunday immediately after.
Any personal belongings, rubbish etc must be removed from the venue.


Costs:

2010 entry fees are 295 per team
Tickets for the MLR500 party will be available separately at 5 each
Spectator entry to the event is free


Bookings:

Team entries can be paid via the MLR Shop (http://www.lancerregister.com/store_category.php?id=13), or by calling 0845 12 526237 with a credit card
If a team pulls out after paying the entry fee but there is a team willing to take the place, 70% the entry fee will be refunded AFTER the reserve team has booked. If there is no reserve team waiting the booking fee will be forfeited


Force Majeure:

If the event is unable to go ahead for any reason beyond the Organisers control, and an alternative date cannot be found or agreed as viable, any monies not used to fund the event will be redistributed evenly across the teams.

These rules are subject to change and any changes will be issued via the MLR500 category on the MLR Forum

What are the regs for the helmet allowed for the MLR500?

Can you wear an open face helmet?
Is BS6658 sufficient or does it need a motorsport sticker?

Last years Rosssport car(the car was Mine, Lee (IWANT1) and Ross's) got weight in for scrap, not much left of it really. We had a HKS mushroom filter during the race, when we started stripping it, we found a large amount of dust/gravel inside the inlet flexi, so we think the engine had been running a air/fuel/stone mixture for much of the race, so was probably a 1.7litre engine by the end!!

We do have a new car, which will be revealed in good time!!

NB, we still have the air horns from last year :)

Hey shell,our car has a rear spoiler fitted to it as standard,is it ok to leave it on???

its not a shopping trolley handle like on evos but merely a small rubber affair thats bolted on in 3 places.

im sure it would be unfair of you to make me remove it as it was fitted on standard models and the ammount of downforce i would lose if it were to be removed would give everybody else an unfair advantage:crackup::crackup:

All,

Please be aware of this following revision in the rules:

"The battery must have a solid cover securely fitted to ensure the terminals cannot come into contact with anything which could create a short or any further damage"

Last year, thanks to a slight altercation with another vehicle, Neverneverman's bonnet came into contact with the battery and could have caused a fire - so this rule is to ensure this does not happen.

Thanks :smthumbup

Hi Dave,

Yeah they would be spot on as long as they are secured and can not come off, but can be gotten off just in case we do need to remove the terminal for safety.

The ESC colt and many others had an open exhaust, last year without being excessively loud.
And as such we have just fabricated a similar system for this years car.

Quick question.

Is there a dB limit?

Hi G3orgi3B

The simple answer is yes - there always has been - but it's not superstrictly enforced as it would be say at Brands Hatch. However, Byton Autograss circuit have neighbours like everyone else and have rules they need to abide by for their events, and they ask that the cars taking part in the MLR500 are "sensible" when it come to noise as they cannot risk having any problems which may affect their major events. To my knowledge we've never had any noise issues, but running open exhaust systems isn't going to help - and we certainly can't have 15+ cars all running on track unsilenced or we risk being shut down - and I'm sure no one wants that as it will be the death of the event. :(


might be worth putting that in the regs then, we've now got to build a new system now.

Hi Chris,

We've never needed to before (which is why it wasn't there this year), but now it seems to be needed I have added a line in the Regs. (see below)


Hang on a minute guys with respect

We can't start changing regs now !!!!

Hi Phil,

It's ok - you're not changing them... we are! ;) I'm sure you'd agree that adding a relatively simple amendment in the Regs to ensure the event runs as it always has, isn't a show stopper??


Lee, is this rule change 100% certain?
The ESC colt and many others had an open exhaust, last year without being excessively loud.
And as such we have just fabricated a similar system for this years car.

Yellowvanman,

As I said above, we've never had a noise problem before, but we don't want one now and must respect that any problems we could create will cause repercussions for the Autograss Club - which can't happen - and also mean we wouldn't be invited back to run the event again. So it's really just a clarification rather than a change - common sense has to prevail so I've added the following line in the Regs.


Exhaust systems can be modified but must remain below 105dba, not run inside the car or protrude outside the bodywork


Cheers

Darin

Ok, fully understand. Indeed after measuring the db of last years Colt, we would be quite happy for the db levels to be reduced further to say 100 db :utahere: :D

Scrapped my super hi flow extra 50hp homebuilt system as it was too loud 117dba. so now resorted to our original exhaust which sounds like a hoover :cry:
But did try the car at the weekend and I came too close to another car and it sucked it in and blew it out as dust and fluff. :D

Lol, we still had the cat fitted on our Galant last year, and we had to rev it hard just so everyone knew it was ticking over in scrutineering. :rotz:

So be warned, there is an existing link to not removing the cat and having terminal gearbox failure halfway through the race. :cry:[
