Race Numbers

Competition Numbers.

No-one owns a number, but we understand how nice it is to have a regular one on your car.

Ultimately the Chief Steward or Race Sectary of the meeting issue the numbers for each event. However the Club tries to allocate numbers to our members to save members money and angst. Most events do not allow triple digit numbers, so that leaves 190+ competition members vying for 99 numbers. We often supply a list of the HTCAV member numbers to promoters of Victorian meetings. In most cases they will give preference to the HTCAV member for those allocated numbers on the list over other entrants. The same rules apply interstate which is why you often end up with a different number when your race interstate.

As stated above we have more competitors than we do numbers. While not all competitive members require numbers, we have used all 99 and we still need to keep allocating more. To have a number allocated & retained you must Be a continous financial member and Use the number at least once every 2 years. These rules still do not guarantee you exclusive usage of a number! They have been devised as way for the committee to make a fair judgement of when we can consider reallocating unused or infrequently used numbers. Other factors that may be considered re the 2 year usage rule are special circumstances that may prevent a member from competing at their intended meetings (e.g. unexpected engine blow ups!)

Our solution to the above conundrum is “a” numbers. What we have begun to do is allocate new members a number that is already in use by another member. So if we have a new member join with a Mustang we would look to use the same number as used on a small car like a Mini or maybe Cortina. e.g. A newly joined has been given #52a (for his GT Falcon) while another retains #52 (for his BDA Escort). At most larger meetings these cars would not  be in the same race, however if they did then orignal holder would use #52 and the new member would have a different number allocated by the event organiser (hopefully 5 or 2 so major change is necessary)! Importantly nobody runs with the “a” on their car.

If you want to ask about a number for your car, please email the the Competition Secretary here!
