So the other day Club Loose released it’s 2013 rules (PDF below). In short the changes are very minor:
1) Under #1 of Driver Requirements they added that they recommend a SA2010 helmet, but still only require a minimum of SA2005.
2) Under #5 of Lighting and Electrical they added that if an OE key is not used on a car the kill switch not only needs to be accessible from the outside of the car like before, but it also needs to be clearly marked.
3) Under #1 of Body and Glass Club Loose is no longer fighting the battle against ugly drift cars.
4) At the bottom of the document, in the concluding paragraph, they have added that where there was previously no exceptions to any infractions resulting in not being able to participate the officials may now decide that if the infraction is minor and not a safety concern the driver can return to the pits to fix it and be reinspected.
