Notice to all Quaife intermarque drivers from the scrutineers

Added: 17th July 2014

Doors – the scrutineers were very impressed with the response to our request for improvements to the method of opening passenger side doors from inside. Well done.

Fluid reservoirs under the dash which are inside the cockpit must be completely boxed in or moved to the other side of the bulkhead. (MSA J 5.2.1)

Tyres:
There seems to be a little confusion so just to restate to all that the system is as follows:
You are allowed up to six tyres for each meeting. These must be declared using the tyre form. One of these (two for Lydden in June) can be a 'New' tyre. A 'New' tyre is defined as one that hasn't been declared before this year which means it can actually be a used tyre. If you obtained two brand new tyres for Lydden in June, then they should have been declared at Lydden even if you did not use them at Lydden and you were just 'banking' them for future use. You cannot just buy the 2 new tyres at Lydden and then decide to declare one or both of those newly purchased tyres as 'New' tyres at a subsequent event in addition to the one new tyre allowed for that event. The tyres given as prizes by Avon count towards the allocation of new tyres, as if you have purchased them. The declaration must be made at Scrutineering or no later than going to the assembly area for qualifying. We have a complete summary of your declarations plus the forms have all been retained.

Meeting Report - Snetterton 12/13 July 2014

Added: 17th July 2014

By Shawn Herrington

The Quaife intermarques came to Snetterton with a degree of trepidation. This was due to the two long straights which might have affected reliability. However, in race one every car finished which was very good news read more...

Intermarque, Fluid Inhibiting Mesh - Scrutineer's Clarification

Added: 2nd July 2014

When asking for the installation of mesh what we are looking at is reducing the risk of fluids passing into the cockpit in the event of an accident rupturing oil and water pipes, unions etc.

Something like insect mesh is fine - look for an aperture size of about 1-1.5m - it is readily available on the internet.

This does not affect all cars and only if you have a gap of any size between the engine bay and cockpit do you need to do anything.

This does not affect ventilation slots in the bonnet - these are required to have grilles fitted already as per the Intermarque regulations - 5. (6).1.

On the subject of door fixings we may ask any driver where we have doubts over compliance, to carry out a controlled practice evacuation from the passenger side.

Scrutineer's Notice for Intermarque Drivers

Added: 28th June 2014

Quaife Intermarque drivers are reminded of the requirement to have methods of securing both the drivers and passenger side doors. So that they can be opened both from the inside and outside. Bonnet clips etc are not suitable for use on the passenger doors, especially as you may need to exit the car from that side in an emergency and with marshals not immediately on the scene.

This was publicised over the winter and the Scrutineers have given plenty of time for compliance.

As of Snetterton the Scrutineers will be instructed not to pass any car that does not have both doors capable of being opened from the inside or with unclear or unmarked methods of opening doors (MSA Blue Book Q19.2.5 (b)).

Furthermore, all ventilation slots, raised bonnets etc must have fluid inhibiting mesh fitted to prevent the loss of fluid. Especially as this applies where there is a gap at the bottom of the windscreen where the bulkhead does not directly connect to the screen.

In view of the Brands Hatch incident you will be required to wear wristbands at all times during the Lydden Hill meeting this weekend. These have now been posted FIRST CLASS to everyone who is booked in to race.

Space in the paddock will be at a premium this weekend. NO private cars will be allowed below the welcome hut. Teams must make sure that all their equipment is with their tow vehicle. When you arrive at the circuit please proceed to the welcome hut, where you will be directed to your parking space. Do not ignore the instructions you are given, as you will be asked to move if you are in the wrong area.

Important Notice for ALL Drivers!

Added: 9th June 2014

All drivers please note that it is compulsory to attend a scheduled drivers briefing. Failure to do so may result in a fine of up to £170 see pages 106 and 392 of the MSA blue book.

Competitors are advised to have greater understanding of the MSA's judicial procedures.

With regard to protests and appeals these are detailed in the Blue Book in Section C on pages 71 and 72, with the appropriate fees listed on page 392.

Please especially note C5.3.5.

Post qualifying or post race inspections can only take place where competing cars have been wholly under parc ferme regulations. We only allow the driver and one mechanic per car into the designated area. Neither can touch the car until allowed or requested to do so.

For the Quaife Intermarque drivers please note that data logging is forbidden in your championship technical regulations. See regulation 5 (10).

For the purposes of avoiding any misunderstandings we require that any equipment with datalogging capability - whether separate units or part of integral electronic dashes etc MUST be removed from cars prior to Lydden on June 21st.

Fuel samples have been taken from various cars in all three of our championships.

All have been delivered to the MSA (in two separate batches) to be taken for analysis at one of their independent laboratories and the results are awaited.

This is part of an ongoing fuel testing regime, where we have funding from the MSA to carry out further testing.

Finally, Quaife Intermarque drivers are reminded that no car can be tested at any circuit where there is to be a race within the next 28 days.

A random selection of drivers were breath tested at Brands Hatch yesterday, in accordance with our regulations. All passed OK. This is a procedure which will be repeated at other events.
