2012 Rule Book Dry Lakes Racers Australia May 2011 1
DRY LAKES RACERS AUSTRALIA
Presents 2012 Speed Trials Rules (Based on 2011 SCTA Rulebook) NOTICE:
The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. These rules govern all events, and by participating in these events all participants are deemed to have complied with these rules. NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATIONS OF, OR COMPLIANCE WITH, THESE RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS. They are intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator or official. The
 Race Director 
 is empowered to permit minor deviation from any of the specifications herein or impose any further restrictions that in his opinion do not alter the minimum acceptable requirements. NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM SUCH ALTERATION OF SPECIFICATIONS. Any interpretation or deviation of these rules is left to the discretion of the officials. Their decision is final. Although a participant’s vehicle meets all safety and technical regulations, the vehicle may not  be allowed to compete due to environmental or course conditions or other considerations. All decisions of the
 Race Director 
 and the Contest Board are final. All regulations are subject to change without notice; in the event of change, all prior inspections and classifications are nullified. Any request for deviation from any rule contained in this rule  book shall be submitted, in writing, to the Contest Board no less than 45 days prior to a meet.
The rule change process is an ongoing one. Any active DLRA member may submit a request for a rule change or clarification at any time by obtaining the proper form on-line at www.dlra.org.au or the registration tent at an event. The form shall be completely filled out and shall be submitted by Australia Post or emailed to info@dlra.org.au. The forms will be routed through the appropriate technical chair and committees for comment. When all appropriate research is completed, issues will be put on the agenda for discussion at the next scheduled meeting (usually in May/June of each year). Submissions received after 1
st
 May of any year will not be considered until the next year’s agenda
