If a vehicle’s classification is found to have been incorrect in prior rounds, the vehicle is re-classified AND the registrants Vehicle Declaration contained in his/her Registration Form is found to be incorrect, then Class points gained in those rounds will be forfeited and future points will be allocated to the new Class.
If a vehicle’s classification is found to have been incorrect in prior rounds, the vehicle is re-classified AND the registrants Vehicle Declaration contained in his/her Registration Form is found to be correct, then the Class point scores will be amended to reflect that the vehicle had competed in prior rounds in the reclassified Class and future Class points will be allocated to the new Class.
A registrant once having presented his/her vehicle to scrutineering will be deemed to have participated in the event.

9. Outright Championship
The MRA Annual Awards Presentation will recognise the Outright Champion, 2nd and 3rd, for categories with more than five registered cars that have competed in the class. In the event of a draw for the title of either Outright Champion or Class Winner, the competitor with the most wins will be declared the winner.
The registrant scoring the highest amount of Outright Championship points will be declared Outright Champion.
In the event of a tie, the Outright Champion will be determined by a count back of race wins.
10. Class Championship
Class Championship points means the aggregate of Class points scored during The Championship.
The registrant in each Class scoring the highest amount of Class Championship points will be declared Class Champion of the relevant class.
In the event of a tie, the Class Champion will be determined by a count back of class placings at those Rounds where the tied registrants did all compete If that fails to break the deadlock, then the tied registrant having the lowest aggregate of times at those Rounds where all the tied registrants did compete shall be declared Champion of the relevant Class.
10.1 SuperTT Classes
Classes for SuperTT will be based on engine capacity and tyre types as listed below;
O2S – Over 2L running on Slick tyres
O2T – Over 2L running on treaded tyres
U2S – Under 2L running on Slick tyres
U2T – Under 2L running on treaded tyres
A competitor is able to change classes at any time, however points are not transferable to the new class.
If a competitor changes classes, the points will be automatically applied to the new classes and the total of both class points will not count towards the outright championship.
In the event that a competitor who runs in a slick tyre class runs a treaded tyre, points will still be allocated to the slick class. This is deemed a disadvantage for the competitor to run a treaded tyre in a slick class. This rule allows for consistency, especially when running on a ‘wet’ track.
11. Registrants’ Responsibilities
Registrants undertake to:
Abide by the applicable Championship Rules, including requirements for substitute/changed vehicles.
Display in a prominent position on their cars any promotional sticker(s) provided, and
Conduct themselves in a responsible manner
12. Final determination
In the event that a dispute arises, these rules will be used and the final determination will be made by Motor Racing Australia.
