Spec Miata / 2018 WCMA AGM - Spec Miata Breakout Minutes
« Last post by ChrisS on October 26, 2018, 04:59:03 PM »
Thanks to all those who contributed.  Below are a slightly more organized version of the notes I took during our breakout session.

Chris



The idea of a Spec Miata committee (SMAC) discussed:
- Representatives in each city to facilitate meeting in person
- Chris Saunders (not present to defend himself) was suggested for Edmonton
- Topics we'd like to tackle this winter:
  - Contingency
  - Marketing
  - New Banners
  - Tire decision Toyo vs. Hoosier
    - hopeful SM8s will address some competitor concerns.
  - marketing plans
  - new website

Mazda Contingency Discussion:
- James volunteered to work with Mazda rep
- less contingency, more series support discussed.  Generally supported.  SMAC input required to determine what this means.

New people questions:
How do the sactioning bodies fit together?
NASA rules or SCCA rules?
Where to find the information I need?
How to connect with the group?

New person perspective:
- More feedback (even without contact)
- More clarity on expectations (passing)
- More continuous learning from stewards.

Steve - will coordinate Gee & Gee spring tire order

Super Miata passing rules discussed.

« Last post by Spec Volcanic on October 22, 2018, 02:51:16 PM »
WCMA Technical Bulletin – 20181022
Helmets – FIA Technical List N⁰ 25

Helmets Recognized to be used without Front Head Restraints
(Applies to limited Ice Racing Classes, Lapping and HPE)
The WCMA will follow FIA Technical List N⁰ 25.
(Snell SA2010, SAH2010 and SA2015 until 31.12.2023 and SA2005 until 31.12.2018)

Helmets Recognized to be used with Front Head Restraints
The WCMA will follow FIA Technical List N⁰ 25 as well as the allow the use of following standards;
Snell SAH2010 until 31.12.2023
Snell SA2015 until 31.12.2023
Snell SA2010 until 31.12.2023, however it is highly recommended that SA2010 are also certified to FIA
8858-2002 or FIA 8858-2010 and the competitors have ensured their helmets are acceptable for use
with FHR

Notes:
FIA updates to FIA Technical List N⁰ 25 or changes in ASN Canada’s position on the subject of testing for
use with FHR may require the WCMA to revisit this topic and as such it highly recommend that
competitors only buy helmets with proof of FHR testing (Snell SAH2010, SA2015, or one of the accepted
FIA standards).

Please see compete review attached
