Is there still 125mph licensing?

Post by Dr Goggles » Mon Jan 14, 2013 10:12 am

We are going to the SCTA rule book, are we dropping the 125mph license?

Is the GPS track going to have the return road running across the end of it?

125 mph licensing is still happening. Changes to how you get your licence are no 10% under rule must be over the set licence speed but no greater than 10%

125 mph Licence /125-137
150 mph licence /150-165
175 mph licence/175-192
200 mph licence/200-220
250 mph licence/250-275
unlimited licence 300=fast

GPS Track limited to 150mph licence with no return rd running across it

thank you your highness, that's good news on the GPS track, we might put a license pass down there, it just takes us a while to stop and I didn't want to meet anyone returning from the long track. So my 192 run doesn't qualify me for a 200 license? or is that rule new?

Looks like i made a mistake [ must read rule book before putting mouth in action]
DLRA Speed Week.1.M DRIVER LICENSING:
All drivers/riders shall have a current DLRA competition license. These may be obtained by application to
the DLRA office after meeting the requirements listed below. ALL DRIVERS SHALL COMPLETE &
SUBMIT A MEDICAL INFORMATION FORM. A driver under the age of 18 shall have a signed Medical &
Minor Release Form from a parent or guardian before he/she will be allowed to compete.
All new cars/drivers/riders or drivers/riders new to the car/course may be required to make runs at less
than full throttle or less than full course length. Successful completion of the license requirements shall
include, but not be limited to, starting line procedure, course navigation and shutdown procedure as
determined by the Contest Board. ALL NEW DRIVERS/RIDERS SHALL ATTEND A ROOKIE
ORIENTATION MEETING PRIOR TO THEIR FIRST COMPETITION RUN. All rookie drivers will be
limited to 125 MPH on their first run.
The official conducting the meeting will issue a signed rookie sticker. Time and place for the orientation
meeting will be announced at the start of the meet.
Experienced drivers/riders holding licenses in a slower category may qualify for the next faster category
by satisfactorily completing one or more runs at a speed within the minimum and maximum for the next
faster category. Licensing requirements are: a current and valid driver’s license, a DLRA driver’s license,
and timing slip for the next higher category verified by the chief steward or his delegate, after viewing the
licensing run.
For a licensing run to be valid, the starter must be informed that the run is for licensing purposes prior to
leaving the start line. Where appropriate, the licensing run will include a parachute test. Where this
applies, these will be conducted on category D passes and above
The categories are as follows:
Category E Current and valid state driver’s license
Category D 125 to 149 MPH
Category C 150 to 174 MPH
Category B 175 to 199 MPH
Category A 200 to 249 MPH
Category AA 250 to 299 MPH
Unlimited 300 MPH and faster
Drivers/riders upgrading their license(s) are restricted to using the short course for license grades below
175 MPH, (Category C and below). The driver shall need to be within 5% (under or over) of 175 MPH on
the short course before moving to the long course for further license upgrades.
Licenses will be periodically reviewed and reduced one license category for each three years of inactive
competition. Licenses may be obtained at the scrutineering tent during the DLRA Speed Week.
All previos signedlicences are valid

Does this mean the clutch is "fixed" to military standards?

I have often wondered about this. When you do not have a speedo and a tacho would be quite useless with wheel spin and with what gear you are in, how do you estimate your speed within 10% or for that matter 5%? GPS would be fine if you were not vibrating like a dildo on warp factor 3.

the GPS track turns over way quicker, we could do your 125 there.I'm hoping for five days of racing so we can get half a dozen passes or more,that'd be a first..... I'm itchin to get there somethin severe.

GPS solves the what gear, how fast wtf ?stuff they're pretty close.

Yes I have GPS fitted but on a rigid bike I could not read it over 80mph on the Tailem Bend test days, at 110mph I could not see the GPS. Vibrations take over but I will use the piece of string method tied to the handle bars, when it tickles my nose I will be around the mark.

License passes for cars - 125 and 150mph & bikes - 125, 150 and 175mph were all on the GPS track in 2009 / 2010 to minimise the timed track "traffic".

To the best of my understanding, that hasn't changed.

See you there,
Rob
