WEBMASTER.
Dont you mean Proclass will can have a 3 digit number beginning with 9.
You said Prolite can have a number beginning with 9, they already start with a 1.
Was that a typo

Mick,
Competitors who never enter a national event are paying $50 for a number.
I hope that Off Road information is not being withheld from non registered competitors just to make the $50 fee good value.
I am quite sure the NSW Advisory panel could incorporate what you suggest in the NSW Championship rules.
There are certain things that work in some states but not in others, so, the states should have some flexability to change what works best in their state.
(Gosh I miss spell check when I am writing to this site!!)

Why can't Your number be followed by the state you'er from.
i.e 14N for NSW, 14V for VIC, 14SA for South Australia, etc, etc.
Just an idea

It works in speedway. And a small N or V in front of the number would surely be less confusing for the average new punter?u

Maurie, there actually paying the fee for an AORC registration, which also gets you a gaurenteed number. Beats me why a lot of people are actually registering and not even competing at AORC events. The idea of using a letter in the number has been considered, but most of the timing systems in use in off road do not have the ability to recognise a letter. The 3 digit 9 numbers will only be used for Pro Class if and when all the 2 digit numbers have been registered for the AORC.

They register to make sure they keep their number no matter where they race. A lot have had their numbers for many years and prefer to keep them rather than take pot luck and have to change it at events they turn up to.
