									MUDMASTER - SUPPLEMENTARY REGULATIONS

1.     Outline. The Scottish Land Rover Owners Club and the British Armed Forces Motoring
Association, will jointly sponsor a Cross - Country Driving Competition on 31 Oct         1 Nov 09. The
competition will be held at sites across Central Scotland with the aim of developing off-road driving and
map reading skills.

2.      Format. Mudmaster is an MSA CLUBMAN event and will be open to all members of the SLROC
and by invitation to members of clubs affiliated to the ALRC and FBPMCs. Competitors will only be
required to produce a club card for SLROC or one of the invited clubs; no MSA licence is required. It will
take the form of a multi site cross-country trial with elements of navigation using Land Rovers. At each site
competitors will have to complete one of the following: Road Tax Vehicle (RTV) trials, Orienteering,
Autotest or a Regularity test. The emphasis will be on skilled cross-country driving rather than speed and
the rules are detailed at Annex A. A separate BAFMA exercise will run alongside the MSA event, which will
be open to military personnel in military vehicles.

3.      The competitive element will take place only on private land and the route between the sites on
public roads will be left to the participating crews and will be entirely non-competitive. Crews will start at
minute intervals but there will be no time schedule on the public roads. There will be a compulsory 1 hour
lunch halt.

4.     All civilian participants including drivers and all passengers in competing vehicles MUST be Full or
Associate members of an invited club.

12.      Insurance.        All civilian competitors are reminded that they will be required to sign the entry
form to the effect that:

 I acknowledge that I understand the nature and type of the competition and the potential risk inherent with
motor sport and agree to accept that risk. Further, I understand that all persons having any connection
with the promotion and/or organisation and/or conduct of the event are insured against loss or injury
caused through their negligence.

I declare that the use of any vehicle hereby entered will be covered by insurance as required by law, which
is valid for such part of this event as shall take place on roads as defined by law.

For the avoidance of doubt this means that:

        a.       you are aware that you take part at your own risk of injury to yourself and damage to your
                 own vehicle.

        b.       you must ensure that your vehicle is insured for road risks (Classic Reliability Navigational
                 Trial). If your insurance company will not cover this, then you may purchase Lockton
                 Insurance, subject to conditions (See Annex D) for £27.30. You will be required to sign a
                 declaration at signing on to the effect that you can comply with the standard conditions
                 (See Annex D). If you cannot comply with these standard conditions then complete the
                 form at Annex D and send it direct to Locktons.

        c.       the MSA Insurance cover for the event only covers third parties for injury or damage and
                 the organisers for loss or injury through their negligence.

        d.       as a competitor you are encouraged to consider taking out special Personal Accident
                 cover    see attached proposal form from MSA/JLT. If you hold an MSA Competition
                 Licence you receive a basic level of personal accident cover either as a marshall or a
                 competitor. If you hold only a Club Card for an MSA approved club you do not get this very
                 basic personal accident cover.

        e.       you should contact your vehicle insurer if you wish to obtain additional off road competition
                 cover (Good Luck!).

13.     Scrutineering. Vehicles will be checked for general roadworthiness by SLROC scrutineers; in
addition vehicles must comply with the following:

        a.       A second throttle return spring.

        b.       Suitable towing points front and rear (contact Bobby Muir, for info. 01324 557735).

        c.     Navigational Aids including GPS, additional trip meters, laptop computers or average
        speed devices are not permitted.

        d.       Axles fitted with locking differentials are not permitted.

14.     Classification. There will be three classes in the civilian event (crews may only enter under one
category):

        a.       SLROC.

        b.       Police.

        c.       ALRC.

15.     Additional Passengers. The event is open to any Land Rover and crews are to consist of a driver
and a navigator. Additional passengers may be carried so long as on competitive sections they are
secured by approved seat belts, in forward facing seats. Specialist Land Rovers such as Ambulances
and Fire Engines are excluded.

MUDMASTER        SPECIAL REGULATIONS & RULES

1.       General         The British Armed Forces Motoring Association (BAFMA) and The Scottish Land
Rover Owners Club are to co-promote a cross-country Driving Competition, (Mudmaster). It will be held
under the General Regulations of the Motor Sports Association Ltd (incorporating the provisions of the
International Code of the FIA) and the Supplementary Regulations.

2.       Outline.         The event will consist of four disciplines: RTV cross-country Trials, Cross Country
Orienteering, Autotests and Regularity Navigation. These will take place at a number of off road sites on
each day of the competition. Penalty points awarded on each discipline, will be added together to give a
total score for the overall event. The winner will be the crew with the lowest number of penalty points.

3.      Orienteering Format

        a.       The Cross-Country Orienteering will take place at several off-road sites in Central
        Scotland starting and finishing in West Lothian. The competitive element will take place only on
        private land and the route between the sites on public roads will be left to the participating crews
        and will be entirely non-competitive. Crews will have to provide their own maps: OS 1:50,000
        Sheets 56, 57, 64, 65.

        b.      An (OFF) Road Book will be issued at the start containing the Grid References of all the
        sites and may also include detailed maps of each site (alternatively they may be issued at the
        relevant site, on the start line). This will show each off-road route and the l ocation of any RTV trials
        sections. At sites there may also be an RTV Cross country vehicle trial section, which is to be
        completed. There will be no time limit for this test. To qualify as a finisher crews will only have to
        book in and out of each off-road site.

        c.      For the Orienteering Sections, in accordance with section M 5.1.1 and 5.1.2 of the MSA
        Blue Book, the crew will score points by locating the driving between a number of controls on an
        off-road site, which will be pre-plotted on a photocopied map or aerial photo, contained in the
        (OFF) Road Book. Once at the correct location, the letter on the code board found there is to be
        entered on a score-card, which will be provided by the organisers. Orienteering punches may also
        be used. Competitors may dismount from the vehicle to record code boards or use
        orienteering punches. Each off road section will have an overall Bogey Time for completing the
        course, set at a speed not exceeding 10 mph. The penalty for exceeding the Bogey Time will be
        to deduct 1 point for every minute over the Bogey Time. The penalty for missing a code board or
        an orienteering punch, will be to deduct 1 point.

        d.      The general idea is to get the maximum number of code boards or orienteering punches,
        without going over the generous Bogey Time (generous, if you are not lost or stuck in the mud or
        both). The winner of the orienteering will be the crew with the lowest number of penalty points.
        Welcome to the world of BAFMA (British Armed Forces Motoring Association).

4.      RTV Trials: Normal SLROC (ALRC) rules apply to the RTV Trial.

        (a)     Booking On/Off

        i.        On arrival at the RTV trial section, teams are to report to the Section Start marshal who
        will indicate the route, which must be walked prior to the driving test.
        ii.       At the end of the section the scorecard is to be handed to the finish marshal who will
        record any penalties. It is the driver s responsibility to ensure that his/her card is marked. Failure to
        do so will result in maximum penalties for that section. The marshal s word is final. Protests may
        be presented to the Clerk of the Course (RTV trial).

        (b)     RTV Trial Marking




                                                       4
        i.     RTV (Road Taxed Vehicle) Trials are as the name suggests, designed specifically to be
        non-damaging to the vehicle. The aim is slow but steady dri ving, with careful control of the vehicle.

        ii.     Each section is laid out over difficult terrain with ten pairs of numbered canes, which mark
        the route and determine a competitor s score. Each gate (pair of canes) will be roughly 3 metres
        wide and will be marked with red and white markers, denoting left and right respectively and also
        gate number.

        iii.     Occasionally blank crossed canes may be used to restrict the route and hitting these
        canes incurs a penalty as if the vehicle had stopped at that point on the route.

        iv.     The start gate is number 10 down to 1 for the last gate. To achieve zero penalties a
        competitor must successfully negotiate the course without stopping, touching the canes or
        deviating from the section.

        v.      If any part of the vehicle touches a cane, the competitor s score for that section is the
        number on that cane. As soon as one cane is touched, the driver ceases to compete on that
        section and should clear the course by the shortest means to allow the next competitor to proceed.

        vi.    If a vehicle stops on a section, the penalty given is that on the next pair of canes it is
        approaching, i.e., if the vehicle stops between canes 8 and 7, the score is 7.

        vii.    If one hub of a vehicle passes a line between a pair of canes, the whole vehicle is deemed
        to have passed it, unless the vehicle actually touches that cane.

        (c)      Shunts

        i.      At no time may a vehicle cross its own tracks, except when shunting. Vehicles with a
        wheelbase of 100 or more (i.e. Land Rover 110) may be eligible for one shunt on a section so
        designated.

        ii.     A vehicle shunts by stopping, reversing and then resuming forward motion. Any other stop
        whilst going forwards or backwards incurs the penalty for stopping at that section. Vehicles taking
        a shunt must obser ve the normal rules about striking a cane.

        (d)      Walking the course

        All drivers must walk the section before driving it, however they must start when instructed to do
        so by a marshal. Any unnecessary delay will result in maximum penalties for that section.
        Competitors should ensure that there are always three vehicles ready to go on the start line (one
        after each other).

        (e)      Tie Breaker

        In the event of a tie in the overall scores, furthest cleanest will apply (this does not apply to the
        amount of mud on the vehicle), then engine size and then a mud run will decide the top driver.

        (f)      Mentoring

        As Mudmaster is primarily a training event, any driver may have an expert in the vehicle whilst
        competing, who is any signed on competitor or marshall (not necessarily the navigator).

5.       Autotest: Each crew is required to drive a set course, which may include reversing, which will be
timed to the second. The fastest crew will be awarded zero, as will all crews who are up to 119 seconds
slower. Crews who are slower will be awarded 1 penalty for every whole two minutes slower than the
fastest time. Massive penalties will be awarded for failing to follow the correct route or striking a marker.
Better slow and steady, than fast and wrong!

6.       Regularity: Each crew is required to drive a forest track at a set speed             e.g 15 mph, with
penalties for late or early arrival at intermediate time controls (ITCs), the location of which will be secret. It
will be timed to the nearest minute, with 1 penalty for every 120 seconds early or late; i.e. crews will be




                                                        5
awarded 1 penalty for every whole two minutes early or late. Crews will be booked in on sight and 10
penalties will be awarded to any crew who stop within sight of an ITC.

7.      Safety: All crew members are to wear seat belts during all parts of the event and are to be seated
in forward facing seats only. All personnel are prohibited from smoking whilst completing any competitive
orienteering, regularity, autotest or trials section.

8.      Identification: Each vehicle will be issued with a start number to be displayed on the nearside
corner of the windscreen during the event.

9.     Officials:        Each orienteering, RTV trial, autotest and regularity section will have 1 or more
Marshalls who will be judges of fact (C 11.2).

10.     Clerks of the Course:

        (a)     Orienteering and Regularity: Lt Col DS Urquhart (BAFMA).

        (b)     RTV sections: Alex Lindsay (SLROC).

        (c)     Autotest:        Rupert Leng (SLROC).

        (d)     Regularity:      LCpl N Donald (BAFMA).

11.     Results:         Provisional results for Saturday will be available at 0800hr s on Sunday at the start
of each competitive site. Final results for the whole event will be available at 1300 hrs on Sunday. Timings
are provisional.
