A copy of the rulebook is sent to you with your membership stuff. The membership is a once off $100. The rule book is on the web site for downloading, but I think you need it on paper for it to be usefull.

I reckon you would be in G or H Blown Gas Coupe.
G/BGC.
If the turbo was stock, it would most likley be Production Supercharged.

G 93 thru 122 cid (1.51 to 2.00 L)
H 62 thru 92 cid (1.01 to 1.50 L)

Mick, I've grabbed the info below from the "mad max on the salt thread". A formula was discussed on there a month or so back. see how it goes. The rule book is available on the web site here to down load. It is a 2.8M PDF file, but worth the time. I think your car would be in Gas Coupe, having a non...

Working bee 6/10/2003. Lake Gairdner new camp. Be there.

There will be a working bee at the new camp site on the week of 6/10, which should be a Monday, to wire and plumb the new camp site. We are looking for things like power points, lights and holders, bed frames etc to kit out the new rooms and the showers/toilets.
