Following round 1 the DSC (driver standards committee) have awarded the following penalties on top of those given by MSNZ on the day:

-15 Points #32
-10 Points #41
-11 Points #52
-10 Points #233

The DSC have also ruled that the above teams cannot use round 1 as their drop round for the season with the Overview committee approving their ruling. I would personally like to thank the DSC for their work as I have seen the vast amount of emails that it took to get to this stage from both within the committee and with fellow competitors.

The technical committee would like to advise that they will be focusing on checking ECU’s over the next couple of rounds. If you are unsure if your computer is the factory item it may be an idea to open your ECU and have a look. Lastly, don’t count out on being put on a dyno at a random time in the next couple of rounds.

Apart from the DSC and tech committee’s work you may have spotted myself checking out all the cars. I was curious as to what level of saftey gear the 2KCUP was at so I went around all the cars and recorded the following result:

7% Were using a standard seat, most with a 5 point harness
21% Were using a racing seat and harness but without a cage.
72% Were using a cage (full/half), race seat and harness.

If your in the market for a cage contact Shores NZ Fabrication Ltd –
