Whats your location?: Sligo
Region: Western
Modifications: Metro engine
Location: Co. Sligo
Same as IMM ????Rocker Cover Racing

The rules are simple, once you have found a mini rocker cover.
1. This is a fun event: Any person taking it too seriously will be ridiculed and shunned.
2. The judges’ decision is final although bribes are greatly received!
3. Teams are welcome to wear racing suits, fireproof overalls, helmets, goggles etc., but do so at their own risk of being laughed at.

The Cars (the rocker cover variety, not the real things)
4. Cars must be recognisably from a Mini engine and have four wheels.
5. Cars must not have any form of mechanical propulsion or steering, gravity being the only power source.
6. Weight and dimensions (in imperial measures because that’s what Minis were made in):
Length – up to14 inches.
Width – up to 8 inches.
Height – up to 8 inches.
Wheel diameter – up to 5 inches.
Weight – up to 8 pounds.
7. Sponsorship logos, racing stickers and car names are encouraged but no obscenities please.
8. Wings for downforce, spoilers air dams and other appendages are all permitted so long as they fit in the nominated maximum dimensions of the car. They probably won’t do any good but we can all have a good giggle at them.

The Race
9. There will be heats of 2 racers per heat.
10.The racers will start with their front wheels on the start line. The first racer to have its front wheels cross the finish line is the winner. If neither racer makes it to the finish, the one going the furthest distance wins.
11.Any racer crossing a lane marker shall be disqualified. The other racer becomes the winner.
12.Winning racers will advance to the next round until all are eliminated except one which becomes the outright winner.
13.There is no rule 13 (Superstitious, who me?)
14.Any protest must be lodged with the judge who will remind you of rule 1.
15.There are no more rules.
