Is your car ‘Tough’ enough?

Tough Street - The hunt for New Zealand’s ‘toughest’ streetcar.

A massive addition to the 2013 South Island Champs, 2014 4&Rotary Nationals and 2014 North Island Jamboree is the new ‘Tough Street’ awards category.

This category has been permanently added to the 4&Rotary shows from the 2013 South Island Champs onwards. Mainly due to cater for the trend (in New Zealand and to some extent around the world) towards owning a tidy streetcar. There are so many high level cars out there that fall into this category so we want to pull the best of the best from around the country and find New Zealand’s Tough Street Grand Champion.

SUPERLAP 2016-2017 DRAFT RULES & REGS

NZ Superlap Series

The NZ Superlap Series is a sealed circuit event run over six (6) rounds. It draws a variety of vehicles from unmodified daily-driven cars, through to dedicated time attack racers.

Note: unsafe vehicles and/or drivers may be removed from the event at any time at the discretion of the organisers.

Eligibility & licence requirements

  • All vehicles, drivers and passenger safety gear must conform to Safety Schedule A.
  • Competitors must hold a current civilian drivers licence.
  • Competitors will not require a Motorsport New Zealand competition licence, however a clubsport license and a logbook is highly recommended for anyone participating in more than 2 events.
  • Competitors are not required to have a MSNZ logbook if they have a current road registration and current Warrant of Fitness.
  • All wastegates must be plumbed into the exhaust system (no screamer pipes).

Classes

There are three classes, which aim to be inclusive. If you are unsure of which class you should be entering, or do not see a class suitable for you, contact the series organiser.

Street

Street class is for all road-legal cars on road tyres. Street class will be split between 2WD and 4WD, and have an overall Street King Champion.

Street cars may have:

  • Roll protection (full roll-cages must be MSNZ homologated and present with an Authority Card), aerodynamic modifications, engine modifications including full engine swaps, and weight reduction so long as they are still road legal and comply to Safety Schedule A of the NZ Motorsport Manual.

  • Run on Road tyres or Semi-slick tyres specifically excluding slick type tyres such as:
    • Hand-grooved slicks
    • Dual grooved slicks (Hankook ventus z214, Hoosier Drag Radials etc)

Exhibition cars may have:

  • Roll protection (full roll-cages must be MSNZ homologated and present with an Authority Card), aerodynamic modifications, engine modifications including full engine swaps, and weight reduction so long as they comply to Safety Schedule A of the NZ Motorsport Manual.

Aero

All Superlap Aero must confirm to Schedule A, as do most other motorsports in NZ. Below is a guide to ensure your vehicle sticks to the rules and won’t have and problems with scrutineers on the day. Competitors wishing to make significant aerodynamic modifications should contact the motorsport nz technical department directly.

  1. MAX WIDTH: The maximum width of anything on your vehicle must be within the width of your bodywork.
  2. FRONT: Can be no higher or lower than the wheel rim and can stick out as far as 200mm forward from the ORIGINAL bodywork
  3. REAR: Can be no lower than the wheel rim and can go as high as 100mm above the roofline. Can stick out 400mm behind the ORIGINAL bodywork.
  4. All aero must be firmly fitted and blend in with the surrounding bodywork.

Please note, Scrutineers have the final say on the day. They will generally give you a one time warning if your car does not comply, and will need to be fixed prior to the next meeting. Scrutineers and Organisers have the right to remove any vehicle that fails to meet these criteria, or refuses to fix their Aero problems. It is your responsibilty to ensure the vehicle is within Schedule A prior to attending events. Street cars are further limited by the VIRM and your Warrant Inspector.

Class/Car/Driver Changes

Series points gained throughout the season are allocated to your car. If a car changes hands mid-season the points will stay with that car and the new driver can continue to accrue points (so long as they are entering in the same class).

If a car changes class eligibility during the season (for example, a Street car goes to semi-slick tyres) they will not be able to transfer points to the new class. Points will not be forfeit and the car may elect to switch back to their original class and continue to accrue points.

Dual Drivers/Vehicles

Dual drivers are allowed at rounds, however each driver will need to pay an entry fee. The same goes for one driver wanting to enter more than one vehicle.

Entries and Fees

Individual event entries

Individual round entry fees are $300 (this covers both days where events are held over 2 days). Entries are to be submitted online at www.motorsportentry.com by the Wednesday prior to the event for all rounds, aside from the Highlands and Manfeild rounds which will be entered through the 4 & Rotary online system. Late entries may be accepted on the day, at the discretion of the organiser, for an additional $20 late fee.

Series entries

Discounted earlybird series entries will be available soon, contact the series organiser for more information. Series entries include your entry fee to all 6 rounds, as well as Windscreen Banners, Door numbers and special sponsor deals and discounts throughout the season. Please note, Windscreen Banners and Door Numbers are a requirement for all series competitors.

Event Format

Documentation and Briefing

All drivers are expected to attend the driver’s briefing at the beginning of each round they wish to drive in. Briefing is generally held near the documentation office – each individual round will post a timetable so you know when the session will be held. Timetables will also detail when documentation and scrutineering are available. Late documentation may be available at the discretion of the organiser, but please contact the Superlap series coordinator if you believe you will need to do late documentation.

Track Sessions

Superlap sessions are intended to have at least 5 sessions at 8 minutes long – this is not open pit, and if you return to pits your ability to return to the track is at the discretion of the official manning the pit lane. You do not need to stay on the track for the entire session.

Superlap cars will be grouped by laptimes, rather than classes. This is to ensure your safety and smooth running by being out on track with cars doing similar speeds. Groups may be shuffled over the course of the weekend and this will be communicated (typically via an information board), it is your responsibility to present on time for your correct group.

No practice sessions are scheduled, and no track session is compulsory – it is up to you to utilise the sessions in the most suitable manner for your car.

Superlap shootout

Time permitting, there may be a top 10 shootout session during the event to give competitors the opportunity to have the track to themselves in a “no traffic” situation. The shootout is not guaranteed at every round.

Results & Timing

Timed laps

Official timing is by AMB transponder and the MyLaps system. If you do not have a transponder, you can hire one at the track but these must be returned at the end of the event. We recommend purchasing your own transponder, they pay for themselves after 3 rounds.

The NZ Superlap Series will have AMB timing running for every session. Every lap you complete with your transponder on during the event is counted. Your fastest lap of the event will be your official Superlap time for that round.

Your times from each track session will be available printed in the documentation office, and also on the live race timing smartphone app.

Results & Prizegiving

Round results will be available as soon as possible after the final Superlap track session of the event. Prizegiving will be approximately 30 minutes after the results have been posted. There will be a prizegiving at every round, and Round 6 (Season Finale) will include the series trophy presentation also.

Series points

Points will be allocated for each class, based on the official Superlap time for each car (your fastest timed lap of the event). Points are 75, 67, 60, 54, 49, 45, 42 (then reducing by 3 points for every placing down to 20th). The series winners will be those cars in each class who have the highest number of points over all six (6) rounds.

Final season points are calculated by your top 5 highest scoring rounds. Your lowest scoring round will be dropped.
