Questions


How do I view photos from recent events?

Normally a news item will be published when results and photographs from an event are available to view on-line. The news item will carry a link to the event page and the photographs are displayed at the bottom of that page.
 
Alternatively you can seek out photographs from any recent event simply by making your own way to the event page via navigating the on-screen menus:
  • Click on the Events tab at the top of the page.
  • Usually this will display forthcoming events so, to find recent events use the EVENT FILTER pop-up that appears at the top right of the Events listing.
  • Use the filter to select the event or events that you wish to see photos from. You can narrow the search by Event Type, Public or member only, the year and the month in a year. In the ‘Year’ field you will need to change ‘Upcoming’ to the year you are looking for.
  • The events list will be filtered and show you events as requested by your own filter choices.
  • Select an event from this list and the photos from that event are at the bottom of the page.
  • Click on an image to enlarge it and then you can scroll through all the posted photos from that event.

THE VINTAGE SPORTS-CAR CLUB
CHILD PROTECTION POLICY STATEMENT
 
 
 
3.1 POLICY STATEMENT
 
The VSCC has in place a Child Protection Policy for the support of its coaches, instructors and volunteers, and will maintain the professionalism and safeguards of good practice, which are associated with our sport.

The policy outlines the following key areas:
  • It recognises the responsibility of all those involved in Motor Sport and associated activities (professional and volunteers) to safeguard and promote the interests and well being of the children and young competitors with whom they are working; 
  • It provides a framework on the recruitment, selection, suitability and deployment of individuals working with young people. 
  • It emphasises the value of working closely in partnership with other coaches, officials, parents, professionals and volunteers to protect children and young competitors from harm and discrimination; 
  • It acknowledges that abuse does take place in sport and that raising awareness and understanding of the main forms of abuse and establishing communication and reporting procedures if abuse is suspected will further safeguard the young drivers, coaches, instructors and all others working within Motor Sport. 
  • The Policy and Guidelines as agreed are seen as a live document, capable of being reviewed and amended according to need on an ongoing basis. For the sake of continuity and consistency, any review period other than that occasioned by changes in the enabling Act(s) should not be less than one year. 
  • The VSCC welcomes any written comments or suggestions regarding the Policy and Guidelines, and their application, at any time.
 
 4.0 CADET AND YOUNG MARSHALS
Following open review and the assessment of the perceived risks, this policy is regarded as ‘best practice’ in dealing with Officials who are aged 17 or under and who attend a MSA permitted motor sport event as a marshal. The policy make a distinction between those aged between their 13th and 16th birthdays and those aged between their 16th and 18th birthdays at the date of the event. A Cadet Marshal (Cadet) is presumed to be any young person acting as a marshal at a MSA permitted motor sport event who is between their 13th and 16th birthdays at the date of the event. No Official who is aged 13 or under will be permitted to sign on.
 
All marshals that are under 18 years of age must be signed on using an under 18 signing‐on form, which must be countersigned by the marshal’s parent or guardian. Should an under 18 signing‐on form not be available at signing‐on, then the parent or guardian must sign next to their entry on the standard signing‐on form.
 
In cases where a parent or guardian is unable to attend the event, the young person may still attend with another adult provided that the adult has written authority from the young person’s parent or guardian to act as a “temporary carer” for the duration of the event. The Under 18 Marshal Consent Form should be used to provide this authority and to delegate medical consent. Note that this form is valid for one named event only, but includes duties performed at multiple locations during that event – marshalling at a number of different events requires a form to be completed for each event. The named temporary carer must counter sign the signing‐on form at the event. The parent/guardian or temporary carer in attendance at the event has the responsibility to ensure the adequate supervision of the young person throughout the event.
 
4.1 Policy for Cadet Marshals (aged between their 13th and 16th birthdays at the date of the event)
Cadet Marshals must be appropriately supervised by a parent/guardian or temporary carer when they are in any area other than a formal spectator area or in an area to which spectators have access.  Cadet Marshals are not to be located in trackside positions at any type of event. Cadets are encouraged to undertake as many roles as practicable as long as they remain in the areas indicated.  Cadet marshals who are aged13, 14 and 15 will be accepted to work only in the Paddock, the Assembly Area, Parc Fermé or any other area which is recognised as not forming part of the race track (i.e. areas where vehicles are moving at less than 10mph and / or under the control of other Officials).
 
4.2  Policy for Young persons aged between their 16th and 18th birthdays at the date of the event
Young person’s aged between their 16th and 18th birthdays may perform the duties as a marshal commensurate with their grade designation and level of experience. Signed on Officials with ages of 16 and 17 will be accepted subject to the following provisions:
 
Young Officials who are aged 16 and 17 will be accepted for work in the same areas as cadet marshals as above, plus, they will be accepted to work at a Marshals Post on the Bank provided that the Official in question NEVER comes forward of the first line of defence (i.e. the Armco Barrier) when competition traffic is on track or circulating.  Further, any Official who is aged 16 and 17 is to be immediately removed by their supervisor from the vicinity of any serious accident to another place of safety.
 
4.3 Responsibility / Permission
 
The Young Official being accepted for duty is conditional upon the individual being under the DIRECT supervision of one of the following at ALL times:
a.                    Parent
b.                   Legal Guardian
c.                   Another person (aged over 21) who is pre-nominated, in writing, by either a. or b. above
d.                   The Official in question receives a valid counter-signature of one of the above at sign-on.
The VSCC will not accept responsibility for any Official aged 17 or under who does comply fully with the above and will not permit such persons to sign-on.   Equally, VSCC Employed Staff are not permitted to accept any form of responsibility ‘in loco parentis’.

I have read and understand the consent process requirements above and agree to the above named young person acting as a volunteer official on this event. Furthermore, where applicable, I agree that the above named adult may act as temporary carer (as referred to in the MSA Under 18 Marshal Policies) for the duration of the event.
 
If it becomes necessary for the above named young person to receive medical treatment, and I cannot be contacted to authorise this, I hereby give my general consent to any necessary medical treatment and, where applicable, authorise the temporary carer to sign any document required by the hospital authorities.
 
Note: The medical profession takes the view that the parent/guardian consent to medical treatment cannot be delegated. This is explicit in The Children’s Act 1989. Thus, medical consent forms have no legal status and a doctor or nurse insisting on the consent of a parent/guardian to a particular treatment has the right to do so. However, it can be a comfort to medical staff to have general consent in advance from parents/guardians or to have a temporary carer on hand able to sign forms required by medical authorities.

I would like to compete in VSCC events. How do I start?

Click HERE to visit our Join In pages, which include our comprehensive guide to competing with the Club. The guide includes information on the equipment and licences required for each Motorsport discipline on offer with the VSCC.

You can find the FIA publication, A Driver's Guide to Safe Motor Sport HERE http://www.fiainstitute.com/publications/D ocuments/drivers-guide.pdf

How do I enter VSCC events?

Entering online is the fastest and easiest method to enter a VSCC event. Over 75% of our event entries are made online. To enter online you must have registered a credit or debit card with the Club Office (please call 01608 644777 Ext 2 to register your card) and know the Buff Form number of the car you intend to enter (this must be up-to-date and in the car's current owner's name).

You can access the Online Entry System from either the Events List page (HERE) or from each individual Event page. On clicking 'Enter Event' next to the relevant VSCC event, you will be given the option to download the Entry Form and Supplementary Regulations or to enter online. Click the latter and simply follow the on screen instructions.

If you choose to download and print off hard-copy, simply complete the Entry Form in its entirety, which can then be posted, faxed or emailed back to the Office with relevant payment.

Alternatively you can send the Competitions Department a stamped addressed envelope with the event name in the top left corner and we will happily send you the Entry Form and Supplementary Regulations once they become available. You can do this in advance for all of our events.

How do I know if my entry has been received/accepted?

If you enter online you will receive an acknowledgment of your entry almost straight away by email to your registered email address. If you sent your entry form to the Office you will receive an acknowledgement by post within 7 days.

Your entry acknowledgement will advise if your entry status is CONFIRMED or PENDING. The Regulations for each event will stipulate the percentage of the maximum entry which is allocated on a first come first served basis. If you are in this percentage your entry is CONFIRMED, which means you are guaranetted an entry for the event. If you are in the final number of entries and your confirmation email or card advises a PENDING status, this means that shoudl the event become over subscribed you will be subject to the VSCC selection process. 

Entries are selected as soon as possible after the closing date and acceptance of entry is confirmed by receipt of Competitors' Instructions (by Post for ticketed events such as Race Meetings or by Email for non-ticketed events such as Trials).

If an event is oversubscribed, Rejections may need to be made - these will always be made by post at the earliest opportunity. For full details of the VSCC selection process, please click HERE.

Where can I find the timetable for a forthcoming event?

If you are competing or marshalling at an event the detailed timetable will be included in your Competitors' or Marshals' Instructions which are sent approximately ten days prior to the event taking place. Approximate timings will be published in the Club’s Newsletter in the months leading up to the event. Each individual Event page on the website will be updated with the timetable and latest information as it becomes available so check these pages regularly.

Race meetings all follow a similar format with practice sessions in the morning from 9am, a lunch break of an hour followed by the races in the afternoon from 1pm. Similarly, Sprints and Hill Climbs will commence from 9am with two practice runs per competitor in Class order before lunch, followed by two Competitive Runs in the afternoon. These times are a guide and may be slightly different depending on the circuit/venue or event programme.

Other than the track action, what else is there to do at public events?

Unlike at other major motor sport events, paddock access is included in the admission price with the VSCC and here you can get up close and personal to the competing cars and drivers. Our competitors, providing they aren’t working on their car, are always happy to chat to spectators about their prized possessions and the history they may have.

At all of our public events there are trade stands to explore and barter for a bargain. The stands vary from car parts and racing accessories to motoring books and photographs. At a number of public events we group spectators cars together in period groups, Pre-war, modern classics etc. These can be a spectacle in themselves and always worth a wander round to spot those rare beauties that are seldom seen other than at VSCC events. And at all the Race and Speed venues have good catering and bar facilities to satisfy hungry and thirsty mouths of all ages.

The VSCC Club Display can be found in the paddock at public events. Here you can chat to Club Directors and volunteers about anything to do with the Club. You can also view, try-on or purchase our extensive range of Club Regalia.

At all of our public events we produce and comprehensive event programme which is on sale from the Club Display and from roaming Sellers. The content includes the full race programme listing the cars and drivers by number, which races they are in and the race details; editorial features on some of the competing cars and drivers, forthcoming events, a list of the trade stands at the event and whole lot more.

When are results published?

Results are published as soon as possible after an event weekend, usuall by midday on the following Monday. Complete Results can be downloaded (PDF) from each individual Event page by clicking on the Results tab or alternatively contact the Competition Department and we will be happy to email/post you a copy.
 
For all Speed events (Sprints and Hill Climbs), Trials, Rallies and Driving Tests, results will remain Provisional for 7 days following publication, during which time competitors are within their rights to raise any queries with the Secretary of the Meeting. At the end of this period, Results are made Final and cannot be changed.
 
At a Race Meeting, results remain Provisional for 30 minutes following the conclusion of each race, when a competitor can approach the event’s Clerk of the Course with any objection. The results for each race then become Final and a complete set of results are made available to download from this webpage as soon as possible.
