All cars must comply with S.10.1-10.9.
All cars with engines running on diesel fuel will be subject to a 30% capacity reduction. E.g. 2000cc diesel engines equate to 1400cc and will be eligible for class A1 or B1 according to their classification.
Series Production Cars are defined as cars complying with S.11.1.1, 11.3-5.1, 11.6-8.
Specialist Production Cars are defined as cars complying with S.11.1.2, 11.3-4, 11.5.2-8.
Modified Limited Production Cars are defined as cars complying with S.12.1, 12.3-6.1, 12.6.3-12.9.2.

Sports Libre Cars must comply with S.14 and Racing cars with S.15.
Rally Cars must comply with R.46-49 AND S.14. Included in the latter Category would be Group B cars, any cars without the original engine block of the model entered, and car with a transmission layout not as originally specified for that model, or a Specialist Rally Car without an engine complying with S.12.6.2. They need not be taxed.
The onus of responsibility for the eligibility of vehicles competing in the championship rests with the Entrant/Competitor. In the event of a dispute concerning the compliance of a vehicle to the regulations, the onus will be on the competitor to satisfy the organisers, NOT the organisers to prove compliance.
Event Organisers are urged to use the above class structure.
2. Championship points will be awarded as follows:
First in class (if an ASWMC Registered contender) – 20 points plus 0.01 points for every 0.01 second their time betters that of the second placed finisher up to a maximum of 21 points.
(If there is only one finisher in the class, who is an ASWMC Registered Contender, then 20 points (max) will be awarded)
Second in class, if an ASWMC Registered Contender – 20 points
Remaining contenders in class: 20 points minus 0.01 points for each 0.01sec that their time is greater than that of the second placed finisher.
The minimum score shall be 1 point.
In addition to the above scoring system a bonus for breaking the record for the class at a venue will be awarded by 0.01 for each 0.01 second up to a maximum of 1 point.
Class records will be records set by ASWMC contenders only.
Class points will be based on all entries in the class.
Existing class records will be posted before the start of the season, if no record for a class exists then the record from an equivalent class will apply plus 0.01 second. Similarly any class record that is disproportionately slow will be adjusted accordingly.
3. When registering, contenders MUST nominate, on the Championship Registration Form, the class in which they intend to contest the championship and in which their championship points are to be awarded. Contenders wishing to change class MUST notify the Championship Co-ordinator in writing, by email or by post. Letters must be postmarked not later than the day prior to the event in which the change is to be operative. emails must be sent not later than the day prior to the event in which the change is to be operative. The onus is on the Championship Contender to prove that an email was sent, and received, within the allowed timescale.
Failure to comply with the above may result in loss of championship points.
4. Clubs may vary, amalgamate or subdivide classes at events as they feel necessary, but must provide the Championship Co-ordinator with Entry Lists and Results showing the cars competitors actually drove so as to allocate points correctly, especially in respect of Regulation 2 above. Where there are less than 3 competing in a class, this may be amalgamated and the points based on the amalgamated class.
5. Not more than 2 rounds shall normally be held at any venue using the same course. Venues with more than one course shall be limited to not more than two rounds on any course. This regulation may be waived to maintain the viability of the championship.
