Technical Regulations – A Helping Hand

Our aim is to ensure all cars competing in the 70s Road Sports Championship comply with the Regulations.

It has become apparent recently that many competitors rely on the word of their preparation specialists to confirm the technical specifications of their competition cars, which unfortunately as recent events have shown has not always proved to be accurate.

Eligibility Scrutineer Nigel Edwards has offered to spend time with any 70s competitor (novice or not) to guide them through the HSCC scrutineering process. 

We believe that being able to ensure with confidence that all competing cars are compliant with their correct specification will promote demonstrably fair racing and remove one area of stress from a race weekend 

Following the post race checks at Donington Park the value of being certain that your car complies with our Technical Regulations should be obvious to all. In return for his technical help and support we suggest that all competitors who take advantage of Nigel’s generous offer should at the very least reimburse Nigel’s travelling expenses

When contacting Nigel it would be useful if you were able to tell him whether your car has a current VIF, when the VIF was approved and whether you have made any changes to the specification of you car since the VIF was issued. Download Regulations

Invitation Class

Alfa Romeo, Silverstone Wing
Cars are from the correct era which comply with the spirit of the Championship Regulations but do not possess the correct VehicleI Identification Forms can race with 70s in the Invitation Class

As a Championship we have a robust, well thought out set of regulations to allow road driven sports and GT cars of the 70s era to compete at the best circuits in the UK.

All cars registered for the 70s Road Sports Championship must have a current HSCC Vehicle Identification Form (VIF). No competitor can claim Championship points unless their VIF has been approved by the Registrar.

Cars from the same era which do not have a current VIF may be accepted at the invitation of the HSCC subject to the completion of a Vehicle Detail Form (VDF). The Invitation class is solely to encourage competitors to join the 70s Championship and should not be used as a means to bypass the Regulations to enter a car that has been modified beyond the championship regulations to gain a performance advantage.

The organisers reserve the right to exclude any car they feel does not comply with the intent of the Championship Regulations.

Should the entry list for any event be oversubscribed cars registered for the Championship will take priority over any Invitation entries.
