General Rules

The Rule Book contains all rules regarding racing, technical regulations, competitions etc. These rules are designed to make racing fair for everyone and also to ensure there is some structure to the organised racing the DMCC participate in. These rules have evolved over the years to suit the changes in the way we do things. The Committee did not write these rules, the Members did! All Members are entitled to propose changes each year at the AGM. Like our Constitution, all members agree to abide by these rules when joining the club.

Current Championship Supplementary Regulations

With each Championship we publish a short set of supplementary regulations. This contains a few pointers from the general rules, plus some extra regulations on how we must run each race day. We arent overwriting any rules, but adding information on how the Race Director will run the day. The idea being that everyone knows what they should expect.

Drivers Etiquette

Racing is more fun if people race by the rules. No one likes to get taken out by other drivers. All members are expected to behave in a sporting manner at all times. We have put together this document to help drivers understand what they should be doing at a race meeting. Its useful for both new and experienced drivers alike. It is based on the rules and can be found in the General Rule Book.
