2014: Rules and Regulations


2014 Vehicle Eligibility and Competition Rules

The purpose of the Calgary Vintage Racing Club (CVRC) is to promote the preservation, restoration and competition of Vintage and Historic sports and racing automobiles in the Calgary area of Alberta. The CVRC and its members support a philosophy which encourages authenticity in racing, rallying and other event formats. There are no prizes other than the camaraderie developed between people with common interests and the great joy of driving a well-prepared automobile at speed. It is not necessary to have an eligible vehicle to be a member, merely an interest in vintage and historic sports and racing cars. These rules are intended to be a guideline. Any member, driver or entrant found to be, attempting to be or deliberately acting outside the spirit of Vintage Racing and the purpose of the Calgary Vintage Racing club may be excluded from participating in CVRC events and activities

It is responsible to confirm eligibility of all vehicles presented for competition in the events organized by or sanctioned by CVRC. A request for eligibility of a vehicle may be made in writing through submission of photographs and vehicle data. It may be made at an event by direct presentation of the vehicle to the eligibility committee. Papers describing any period modifications or racing history of the mark of the vehicle which could be queried should be made available. Each approved vehicle will be issued a logbook which is to be presented for a signature at each sanctioned CVRC event Responsibility for authenticity of vehicles, equipment and modifications rests with the person applying for eligibility inspections. The Technical Director will assist in determining the eligibility criteria.
