F1 National Rules with the following additional restrictions:
o Ride R1 control tyres. One set for all 3 rounds purchased as part of entry fee.
o Control motor. Motor purchased as part of entry fee.
Cars will be scrutineered at each round.

One set of control tyres will be marked and provided to each entrant. If a tyre / wheel becomes unusable during the competition then another pair may be substituted, at the organisers discretion, but a points penalty will be incurred. The new pair must be provided by the entrant and they must be new in packet (un-opened) with the correct part number and must be marked by the organiser before being used in the event.

Control motors will be marked and may not be opened.
Motors provided at cost.
The control motor is: Thunder Power 21.5 TPM-540A215 and will be available at the discounted price of $82.50
The benefit of this motor is that it is a recognised brand with proven reliability and is expected to be a competitive motor in normal F1 competition after the series. It will be supplied by Metro Hobbies who have confirmed supply will be available.
Entry fee $30 (to cover trophy costs)
+ control motor cost $82.50
If you are ordering control tyres then add $54 for an F104 (total $166.50) or $44 for an FGX (total $156.50).
You may order extra tyres and motors if you wish by paying the appropriate amount. We regret that we are not able to hold additional tyres and motors in stock “just in case” but you may buy extras if you wish. Only one motor and one set of tyres may be used without incurring a penalty (refer to the Tyres section above for how this works). We will have one additional motor on hand so that if a motor fails “out of the box” it will be replaced at no charge.
If you are providing your own tyres they must be new in packet (un-opened) control tyres with the part numbers specified above.
You may not supply your own Thunder Power motor. This is to ensure that all motors are marked and cannot be tampered with in any way.
Entry fee must be pre-paid to allow us to pre-order the motors and tyres.
In addition entrants will pay the normal club race fee from each host track.
