Rule Changes:

It was deemed that following rule changes will take place. A full rulebook will be available in the coming weeks.

  • Club Championship rounds will be open to non-members. Entry fee for non-members will be at least €5.00 or 50% (which ever is greater) more than members. Points will not be earned by non-members and points cannot be carried forward to the inception of membership. For 2015 this has been altered to include that basic entry fee will be €10 for members (includes 1 class) (+€5 per additional class).
  • The race day schedule will be assessed by the committee and amended where necessary and shall be published and strictly adhered to. (unchanged)

    • Failure to marshal:
      • During heats: demoted to back of grid for final
      • During finals: disqualification from event, no points will be awarded.
      • The only exception shall be that a driver may nominate another person (must also be a club member and is not already supposed to be marshaling) to take their marshal position. This must be communicated to the race director before the start of the heat/final.
    • Delaying the start of a final:
      • A delay of 10 minutes may be called at the start of a final. There may only be one delay per final. The competitor who requests the delay must start from the back of the grid (Position 11 - or position indicated by race director), and their original position must be left empty.

Membership Forms:

We have discussed the feasibility with Dublin City Council for our members to drive their vehicles into the park on Non-race days. This will be permitted on a trial basis and will be subject to you completing page 2 of the membership form. You are asked to comply with all bye-laws related to park set down Dublin City Council. Parking in the park is not a right it is a privilege and should be respected as such. Your vehicle registration will be printed on your membership card and you are asked to have this with you at all times while using the track.

All competitors at all race days will also need to provide there vehicle registration details to race control via per-registration or track side.

The membership form is available at: http://www.orcaireland.ie/index.php/downloads.html
