Announcement 2015-12 CARS Rule Change Proposal for two-week review - Production 2WD and 4WD

Announcement Nº 2015-12
Subject: Rule change proposal for two-week review
Production 2WD and 4WD
Issue Date: December 23, 2015

The rationale for the following rule change proposal is as follows:

At the time of the major rule change initiative for production 2WD and 4WD the intent of the rule changes were to open the rule set up enough to enable competitors to up-date and back-date their competition vehicle within the model and generation. The underlying reason for this was to improve reliability and at the same time reduce costs. Over time competitors and officials alike have encountered scenarios which required additional clarification of the intent of the rules from the Technical Director. In an effort to enhance the clarity of the production rules the Technical Rules Committee has proposed the following changes be made to the rules and the CARS BOD has approved the changes for 2-week review.

Rule change proposal for Rally Community feedback

Rule change rationale:

The technical rules committee has reviewed three separate rule change proposals requesting that DOT tire studs be allowed for use in CARS sanctioned National events in regions which permit the use of street studded tires during the time period in which the event is run. Based on the Technical Rules Committee recommendation the CARS BOD has approved the following rule change for a two-week review. The rule change if adopted will be in place for the start of the 2016 competition season.

Career-capping victory for Grand Master driver Sylvain Vincent and son Simon at Rally of the Tall Pines

Bancroft, ON., November 29, 2015 – Sylvain and son Simon Vincent of Terrebonne, QC., won the Rally of the Tall Pines, the final round of the Canadian Rally Championship. After a long career in the sport and numerous podium finishes, Sylvain had earned the rank of Grand Master though a national victory had eluded the driver for his entire career.  

The team drove a consistent pace, and took over the lead early in the rally after running in second place through the morning stages.
