SNF 2013: Critical Updates before Rnd 1

Some important items to highlight as we head towards Round 1 of SNF 2013 this coming weekend, which will also answer a couple of queries that have been put forward these past few weeks:

1: Fire Extinguishers
– now required for 2013. We have not specified any particular specifications, thus at minimum a spray can-type Fire Extinguisher with holder which can be cable-tied to your rollcage is good enough.
– No Fire Extinguisher, No Race bro!

2: NOS update
– Nitrous Oxide is only permitted in SuperStreet category, and Racing Cars Class 1 category.

3:  Competition Numbers
– For those that have registered their numbers and designs with us, please go ahead and produce / prepare them for this coming round

4: Named SNF Championship driver 
– Please decide on your which name will be the Registered Championship driver. This will have an effect on the SNF 1-hour Enduro race which will take place later this year (either Round 3 or Round 4, to be confirmed)
– As mentioned in the regulations, the 2nd Driver for the Enduro must not be a current named SNF Championship driver. Named SNF Championship Drivers from other categories are also not permitted to be the 2nd Driver for another category
– However, a 2nd Driver for a team in one category, may be 2nd Driver for another car team in a different category example 2nd driver for Desmond Yee in SuperStreet, and then 2nd driver for SinghBoy in Special Kei.

5: Fuel Surge Tanks
– Surge Tanks will be permitted from Round 3 onwards.
– However, these will be required to be inspected and certified beforehand to ensure that the quality of material, the design of the tank, the electrical assembly, and the quality and type of hoses used is acceptable. Inspection dates will be published in the following weeks, once we have released the design specifications for this item
– What we can tell you now and what will be incorporated into the Surge Tank ASR Regulations:

Fuel Lines: all lines must be fitted in such a way that any leakage cannot result;
Fuel Pumps: are free except they may not be mounted in Driver compartment. The fuel pumps must shut off when the engine stops running and the fuel pumps may have a by-pass system for start-up;
Isolation: have a bulkhead between any fuel tank and filler and the driver/passenger compartment sufficient to prevent the passage of flame or liquid. Where a fuel tank constitutes part of the bulkhead between the passenger and luggage compartments, an additional bulkhead must be fitted;
Cut-off: These must be equipped with an effective method of stopping fuel supply and operable by the driver when normally seated. This to be combined with or located adjacent to the internal ignition cut-off switch;
Tanks: every effort should be made to isolate fuel tanks and pipes from the driver/passenger compartment. It must be designed in such a way that fuel spillage is minimal in the event of accident damage. Tanks should be located so that they are given maximum protection by the structure of the vehicle. Vents should be designed to avoid spillage if the vehicle becomes inverted.

FUEL SURGE TANK MUST BE ISOLATED FROM THE CABIN WITH A SECONDARY BULKHEAD IF NO BULKHEAD EXISTS.

BMW Club & Friends Vehicle Dynamics Course with Ignition.my

January 12th 2013 saw a total of 15 cars from the BMW Club Malaysia together with a couple of their friends in other cars participate in the Ignition.my course for “Introduction to Vehicle Dynamics & Limit Handling” at Shah Alam Stadium Carpark. It was a mix of all types of cars, and with a lady driver as well (who did very well indeed!).

The weather played its part thankfully, with overcast skies for most of the day up till about past lunchtime. Speaking of which, the 4 barrels of KFC fried chicken went down pretty quick when you have 15 ravishing drivers pumped with adrenalin!

The course introduced the participants to
– Skid Control at 70 km/h
– Braking Avoidance at 70 km/h
– Lane change at 80 km/h
– Staggered Gate Slalom at 80 km/h

And we finished the day with a little Autocross competition as a culmination of all that they observed through the day’s activities.
