CCDA 2021 Member update - ROPS changes and new events

22 Apr 2021 5:03 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Dear Members,

After somewhat of a challenging 2020, we enter 2021 with a number of events ahead of us.

We have a carryover of the committee from 2020, this committee shares a great deal of experience and enthusiasm, which puts us in a great place to continue to assist and grow the sport for the benefit of our members during the year ahead. We wish to openly invite anyone that wishes to learn about committee roles to get involved during the year, this might be a great lead in for others to be on the committee for 2022.

One of the big points is that the ROPS review, now complete, has been pushed back for implementation date to 01/01/2022. This allows anyone a great deal of time to adapt old cages to suit the revised spec. This revision requires the following bars (as a minimum) to be added to an old spec car with build date 2020 or older. There are some events in the meantime that may add Supplementary Regulations that require the new specification.

Vertical door spreader bar and at least the lower of the two side intrusion bars, these bars may be either 38 or 44mm spec tube.

Old spec vehicles with twin 4 point cages will need to add rear back stays off the main hoop to the chassis/body prior to the new date also.

Any new vehicles being built, must be built to the full new specification which can be viewed at in the Rules Version 11.1 section 5. Vehicles that have been built to CAMS or AASA spec will have allowances made to be confirmed by end of July.

We are pleased to announce that the Navrun series of events now operates under the CCDA. We look forward to working together with Rudi and his team to provide a great diversity of events for the future.

With a strong focus on making it easier for interstate teams to attend events, along with events being held in multiple states, we are about to roll out a fresh list of interstate scrutineers located in WA, NSW and QLD.

There are a number of events in the pipeline including traditional winch events as well as endurance rally style events through Victoria and New South Wales. A new long course is now in progress plus a new tourer (non caged) event underway. Get ready for it, there’s lots on the go.

We look forward to a prosperous and exciting 2021.


2021 CCDA Committee
