ALRC reg changes –
After a discussion at the ALRC S&ORC meeting held on the 9th July2016 the ALRC Council ratified the following addition (in red) to the Competition Regulations which takes immediate effect.
Towing balls, jaws and pintles used for recovery must be rated as a minimum to the capacity of the vehicle being recovered. E.g. a 3.5Te towing ball fitted to a Freelander is compliant: a 2.25Te combined ball and jaw hitch fitted to a Defender is not compliant. (Clarification 4th July 2015).
All recovery points must have a minimum of a 3mm thick, mild steel spreader plate behind it’s mounting, regardless of its type or location. (Clarification 9th July 2016).
