A message from the Zone 8 Staff:

Now that we've got 4 months of 2017 club activities under our belt, it is Rules Proposal Season in Zone 8. If you have been participating in a Zone 8 Autocross, Time Trial, Concours, or Rally, now's your chance to submit rules change proposals for 2018.

The current Zone 8 Rules can be found here:

The Zone 8 Rules Proposal process can be found here:

It is important to include the following in your proposal:

1) Please tell us what the issue or problem is and what rule you believe should be changed to fix it. The most important concepts the Rules Committee needs are: What is going wrong. What is unfair, unsafe or otherwise broken. Who does it effect and how does it affect them. Providing data and analysis of results is always very helpful in supporting your suggestion.

2) If possible, please propose suggestions for changing the rule(s) in question.

3) Describe how the proposed rule changes would fix the problem and/or addresses the situation. In addition to clearly stating what you see is a problem, you must clearly demonstrate how and why your proposal resolves the situation. Please use data and explain your reasoning in a clear and logical manner. Often rule proposals are rejected because the Rules Committee does not understand the author's description of the problem or what the proposal is trying to do or change. Another frequent cause of rejection is when the proposed change doesn't appear to address the issue presented.

Please send your submission to The deadline for submitting proposals is June 30, 2017.
