MA INFORMATIONenjoy the rideA SHORT HISTORY OF MOTORCYCLING AUSTRALIA16In 1928, the Auto CycleCouncil of Australia (ACCA)was formed to represent theinterests of motorcycle clubsand State associations at aNational level. The ACCAwould eventually becomeMotorcycling Australia,the representative bodyfor motorcycle racing inAustralia.But organised motorcyclesport was established manyyears before the ACCA.Speedway racing was thefirst form of motorcyclecompetition to be organisedas a professional sport. John Hoskins has beencredited with presenting Speedway to the world, whenhe conducted the first meetings at the West MaitlandShowgrounds (NSW) in 1923. His efforts laid thefoundation for future Australian successes in WorldChampionships.ACCA held biennial National conferences until 1972,when they became annual affairs. Delegates fromeach State Controlling Body (SCB) participated atthe conferences. These high-level gatherings had theprimary purpose of updating the General CompetitionRules (GCRs) and determining future directions ofthe sport.In 1975, ACCA moved to International recognitionby affiliating with the Fédération Internationale deMotocyclisme (FIM).By the 1980s, motorcycle sport was no longer anamateur business and it was becoming unfeasibleto operate in the traditional way. In 1989, the ACCAestablished a permanent office in Melbourne, staffed bya full-time administrator and assistant. By 1991, a newfull-time National Executive Director was appointed,replacing the administrator. It was clear that theorganisation had to change with the times and providethe professionalism demanded by modern sport.Subsequently, in late 1992, the name MotorcyclingAustralia replaced ACCA to reflect a more modern andprogressive image, and to ensure easy identificationwith motorcycling sport. A new logo was introduced atthe same time, to match the improved image.A full-time National Development Officer was appointedin early 1993, reflecting the growth of the sport and theorganisation’s commitment to support and encouragethat growth. At the 1993 annual conference, therewas an overwhelming vote in favour of change forthe long-term benefit of the sport, including plans forrestructuring the organisation.The following year, at the Annual conference, theCouncil approved a restructuring of the organisation.National Commissions were established andCommissioners appointed for each branch of the sport.Each Commission was responsible for rule changesand the national development of its discipline. SpecialSub-committees, responsible for the business aspect ofthe sport, were also established. In 1998, the NorthernTerritory was formally admitted as a member.At the 2000 Annual conference in Hobart, a newconstitution was adopted which empowered anindependent Board of Directors. Councillors werereduced to one from each State. In the same year aMotorsport Manager was appointed to administerAustralian championships. That role would eventuallybecome that of Sport and Development Manager,merging the duties of National Development Officerand Motorsport Manager into one role. In 2001,Motorcycling Australia appointed a Media Managerand in late 2002, a new role of General Manager wascreated, replacing that of Operations Manager.Motorcycling Australia established its own PublicLiability insurance arm- Motorcycling AustraliaInsurance Limited (MAIL) in 2003 to free the sport fromthe volatility of the public insurance market.Today, the organisation has in excess of 21,000competitors, more than 350 affiliated clubs, and over3000 registered officials.Motorcycling Australia will continue to serve itsmembers and the motorcycle sport community, toensure the healthy future of motorcycle sport.


2013 MANUAL OF MOTORCYCLE SPORTMOTORCYCLING AUSTRALIA STRUCTUREMotorcycling Australia (MA) is the governing body ofmotorcycle sport in Australia.In any sport, it is essential to have rules regulating itsconduct. This is particularly so in the case of motorcycling,where safety is vital for participants and spectators.This book of rules, referred to as the GCRs, the RuleBook, sometimes ‘The Bible’ and MoMS variously, formsthe basis of a contract between the regulating bodies ofthe sport and those who participate in it, namely licenceholders, promoters and the clubs.Our rules must be fair, they must confer on officials aclearly defined discretion to ensure that they are appliedfairly, and must be observed by all. As the technology ofour sport is constantly changing and developing so mustour rules adapt to change.MA’s core businessMA’s core business is to develop and apply the rules andregulations of the sport and represent you, our 25,000members Australia-wide.MA operates within the framework of local, State andCommonwealth Government legislation and regulationsand is affiliated with the international governing body,Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), basedin Geneva, Switzerland.MA is a Federation with seven voting members,comprising State Controlling Bodies (SCBs) from allStates and Territories except the ACT. These are listedon page 15.MA STRUCTUREMA’s National Council is made up of one delegate fromeach SCB, usually the SCB President. The Council elects4 Directors to the MA Board, which in turn appoints 2independent Directors.MA’s has a full-time National Office in Melbourne as domost of the SCBs around Australia. All are available tohelp keen riders enjoy their sport to the full.ResponsibilitiesIn addition to electing the Board, the MA National Councilis responsible for policy development and strategicdirection.The MA Board is responsible for implementing andreviewing the adopted Strategic Plan, governance andappointing suitable people to join Commissions andCommittees.The CEO is employed to manage the organisation.Commissions are mainly discipline-specific and existto develop recommendations for the management of aparticular area of the sport. They have been establishedacross the spectrum of motorcycle sport, including RoadRacing, Motocross & Supercross, Speedway & Track,Enduro, Moto Trials, Classic Motocross, Historic RoadRacing, Dirt Track, Juniors and Women.To find out more about the Commissions and Commiteessee page 70Administration of the sportMotorcycle sport is administered under the doctrine of“Relevant Controlling Bodies”.The FIM is responsible for international competitions, MAfor Australian Championships and series, and the SCBscontrol state and club competitions. Although each SCBis autonomous and incorporated in its own State, bothMA and SCBs have a mutual reliance for the efficientmanagement of the sport.MA and the SCBs administer all competitions undercommon rules and the SCBs have delegated authorityto licence competitions, venues and control the sport atState/Territory level.Together with their organisational roles, MA and SCBsare concerned with the well-being of riders, officials,venue and track standards, risk management, allaspects of safety, the administration of safe, free and faircompetition in accordance with the principles of naturaljustice and the development of the sport in Australia.ClubsClubs are the smallest, but one of the most importantunits of organistation in our sport.17


MA STRUCTUREenjoy the ride18They often provide the face-to-face contact thatencourages people to join motorcycle sport. They havealso traditionally provided a social aspect which makesour sport, in particular one which attracts people andoften keeps them involved for entire lifetimes.CompetitorsCompetitors are the life-blood of Motorcycling Australia.Without your involvement and enthusiasm, there wouldbe no sport.MA has sought to recognise this vital contribution thatcompetitors bring to motorcycling by creating a MemberBenefits program that competitors can use to reduce thecost of participating in the sport.By arranging discounts on accommodation, car andtruck hire, bike transport, tyres, accessories, protectiveclothing, etc, we hope to encourage new competitorsto join our sport, and older competitors to continue totake part.VolunteersCompetitors, administrators, spectators, sponsors andgovernment authorities are all important elements of thesuccessful running of a sport. One of the most overlookedgroups – volunteers – is of fundamental importance.Volunteers fulfill the majority of roles and responsibilitiesin the function of every day motorcycle sport. The manyorganisations delivering sport and recreation servicesand the volunteers that create and sustain theseorganisations make a vital contribution to the needs ofthe community.Without volunteer support, our sport would not exist. It isalso true that the volunteers receive the least recognitionor reward for their time and effort. Competitors enjoy theexcitement of competition and the opportunity to winprizes; Sponsors receive increased recognition for theirbrand or product; and a professional administrator orPromoter can realise a profit.Volunteers do it for the love of the sport, so weacknowledge the contribution that you make tomotorcycle sport in Australia and greatly appreciate yourtime and effort given.All our volunteers have access to the full range ofMember Benefits at no cost to them. It’s another waythat we recognise volunteers’ cricial contribution to oursuccess.MA and the SCBs conduct courses in Officiating andCoaching and have support services to assist volunteerinvolvement in motorcycle sport.We would encourage anyone interested in becominginvolved in motorcycle sport to contact a club.Australian Riders’ Divisionwww.ard.org.auUntil recently, MA existed solely as the governing body ofmotorcycle sport in Australia.Motorcycling Australia saw the need for a national bodythat could be a resource for all motorcyclists, as a resultthe Australian Riders’ Division (ARD) was created.The Riders’ Division is not only a reason for non-racingmotorcyclists to be a part of Motorcycling Australia. It isalso another reason for members to get on their bikes- toenjoy the ride.There’s more about the Australian Riders’ Division at theback of this book

MEDIA GUIDEenjoy the rideMOTORCYCLING AUSTRALIA MEDIA GUIDE32FOR RIDERS, CLUBS AND PROMOTERSGet your local media involved:Local media such as newspapers and radio stationsare a great place to start to increase coverage of yourefforts as a rider or for an event you are promoting.If you’re just starting out and haven’t done muchpromotion work before, don’t be afraid to ask themedia what information they need and if they haveany advice for you.Remember, if you have any questions aboutmedia/event promotion, your SCB and the MACommunications Department are only a phonecall away.Also consider asking around for someone studyingPublic Relations, Journalism or Marketing andCommunications, who might be interested in helpingout with your promotion as work experience. Contactyour local university or TAFE to see if they run relatedcourses and have some students who may beinterested in helping out. There are many websiteswhere you can advertise work experience placementsto help with your promotion.NEWSPAPERS:Find out if your local newspaper has a separatesports editor (if not speak to the news editor) andtell them about your efforts or event. Ask them ifthey’d be interested in coming out to see you ride orto attend the event, or if they’d like you to send moreinformation through.RADIO:Similarly, when ringing your local radio station ask tospeak to the news producer, or if you are interestedin getting promotion on a particular program (e.g. theSunday afternoon sports program) then ask to speakwith the producer of that program. Again, explainwhat your news is and ask if they would like you tosend them some more information.TELEVISION:If you are approaching a television station ask tospeak with the news desk or someone in sports.As with radio, explain what your news is, includingopportunities to secure action footage or interviewsand ask if they would like you to send them somemore information.If they ask you to send through more information, findout the best way to send this information through tothem – fax, email, hard copy. Most of the time emailwill be preferred; as such the best format to presentthis information is as a press release.PRESS RELEASES:A press release is a short, one page news storythat provides the reader with the: who, what, when,where, and why of the story. This information shouldbe included in the first one – two paragraphs of therelease. It should also include a headline – whichsummarises the story, a date, and contact details at theend of the release for anyone seeking more information.(A downloadable press release template is availablefor you to use from the MA website at www.ma.org.au/media.)In a press release you should;* Write like a reporter writes a news story (read itthrough in your head in a news-reader voice to seeif it works)* Use simple and easy to understand language, asif a 10 year old could read it.* Ensure your writing is short and snappy and get tothe point quickly - one sentence is the equal to oneparagraph in press releases* Answer any questions a journalist may have,make it as easy as possible for them to write thestory.* Present the facts in an ‘inverted pyramid’ styleof writing – the most important information alwaysgoes at the top, that way if only the first two orthree paragraphs are read they still get the mostimportant information.* Proof read, proof read again and have someoneelse proof read your release for you. Check forspelling, grammar and the correct wording.* Include an image.INTERVIEWS:If you are speaking with your local media and they areinterested in interviewing you or someone else in order towrite a story, the following are some of the do’s and don’tsof interviews for TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, andwebsites, as well as pointers on preparation.Preparation:* Be accessible, return all calls within 24 hours andensure you have a professional voicemail messagethat you check regularly.* Think of questions you might be asked andprepare some answers.* Write down key messages you wish to tellthem about so that you stay focused whenanswering questions.* Practice! It might sound stupid, and feel even


2013 MANUAL OF MOTORCYCLE SPORTMOTORCYCLING AUSTRALIA MEDIA GUIDEworse but getting someone to ‘mock’ interviewyou is a great way to practice, as it should bemuch easier talking to a journalist than havinga friend or family member interviewing you!* Dress to suit the situation, always wear yourteam/sponsor/club clothing for interviews andofficial occasions. (And be mindful of visibletattoos and obvious piercings.).* Be Punctual!During the interview:* Find out how much the journalist knows onthe topic, it will change the type of answers youneed to give.* Find out the length of the interview, so youknow how long your answers should be.* Don’t feel like you have to start talkinginstantly, take a slow breath and take your timeto think about the question. Speak slowly; beconfident, clear and to the point.* Don’t feel that you have to keep talking to fillthe silence, if you’ve said all you want to say,stop talking!* Avoid - waffling on and using; ‘um, ah’, ‘yeah,no, yeah’, ‘you know’ and putting ‘but’ andthe end of each sentence. If you’re talking tosomeone from outside the industry, don’t usetechnical industry-specific words.* Never ‘bag’ or talk negatively about others,the interview should be about you, andnever lie.* Keep in mind the facts of the event or yourstory; don’t go off on a tangent. Make sure youknow all the facts about the race, the club, theChampionship, and the event, whatever it isthat they are interviewing you about includingthings not directly related to you.* If you had a bad race, or an event was rainedout, don’t dwell on the negative, look for apositive angle. E.g. if you fell off and DNF’d,rather than talk about how bad it is, talk abouthow you’ve learned from it and will hopefully beable to improve next time.* If you feel yourself loosing it, don’t be afraidto ask them what the question was again, andtake your time to think about an answer.* Use the opportunity to thank sponsors,teammates, parents and any anyone else whohas helped you.MEDIA GUIDEIf television cameras are present:* Don’t look at the camera, instead look at theperson who is talking to you, maintain eyecontact with them and don’t fidget.* Don’t wear sunglasses on camera, however ifthey are sponsor glasses, place them on the topof your head.At the end of an interview:* Thank the journalist for their time.* Ask who else they are interviewing and putthem in touch with other people in the field(even your competition) and ask if there’sanything else you can help them with.* Be a good resource for the journalist about theindustry, not just what directly relates to you;if you help them out they will more likely coveryou or your events.* Journalism is based on trust so don’t burn ajournalist with bad information.It is important to remember that even if you havespent hours writing press releases, made countlessphone calls and have been interviewed by ajournalist, if something more ‘newsworthy’ comesup - it could be a dramatic car crash or somethingseemingly ridiculous like a dog saving a chicken -your story could be dropped and forgotten.This can happen, and is not meant to discourageyou; however it is a reality of promotion and publicrelations. It pays to have thick skin and to persevereno matter how many times your story gets rejected.OTHER PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES:In addition to media coverage there are other waysthat you can increase promotion of an event that youare organising or riding in, which include:* Creating posters and distributing them toshops along your town’s main street to put intheir front window is a great way of increasingthe event’s profile.* Printing flyers to put in mail boxes of people inthe local area.* Visits to local schools with a bike and a rider tohave a chat about what you do and rider safety.This is a great way to get children interested inthe sport and you can take posters and somefree tickets to give away.* Setting up a static display in your localshopping centre (with centre permission) is alsoa great way of getting more people interestedin the event.33


MEDIA GUIDEenjoy the rideMOTORCYCLING AUSTRALIA MEDIA GUIDE34Speak with your SCB or with the MA CommunicationsDepartment for more information about thesepromotional activities.SPONSORSHIP:Sponsorship plays a vital role in the success of oursport, for an event or so you can continue riding in yourchosen discipline.Before approaching sponsors it is important to dosome research and preparation. You should researchpotential sponsors with a similar interest, or sponsorsfrom outside the motorcycling industry who could standto benefit from exposure within it.Preparation:* Create a brief sponsorship proposal. Don’t beput off by the name; it’s just an information packthat sells you! It should include things like:- A letter introducing yourself andexplaining what you want (product orfinancial support) and how it would helpyou. It should also include an explanationof what’s in it for the sponsor – whatyou can offer them in return for theirsponsorship, which is the most importantpart of the proposal. The letter should alsoinclude background information such as:website details, statistics, member numbersof your club and your contact details.Even though you need to put most of thisinformation in, the letter still needs to beshort and sweet one to two pages max!It pays to do several drafts and get a fewpeople to proof read them for you.- You should also include a record of yourrecent results or successful events thatyou have run, and if possible include somephotographs.- Any positive newspaper clippingsabout you (keep the originals and usephotocopies instead).- In total the proposal should be no longerthan four pages.* Find the right person in an organisationto approach about sponsorship, often theMarketing or Brand Manager or in smallbusinesses it is often the General Manager.* Have reasonable expectations and don’t bediscouraged by rejection, you will be rejectedmore times than you will be accepted.Approaching potential sponsors:* Send through a copy of your proposal – emailor hard copy - and follow up with a phone call theday after. Explain what you are interested in, andoffer to come in and meet them.* Be punctual.* Present yourself well; stand up straight, dressappropriately, speak clearly and don’t havechewing gum in your mouth.* When you first meet them, take off your hat,shake their hand and make eye contact andintroduce yourself.* Sell yourself, what’s in it for them? How canthey get value for their sponsorship of you oryour event?* Have a copy of your materials (see preparationsection) on hand to show them even if you’vealready sent it to them.* Answer any questions they may have andthank them for their time when you head off.Retaining Sponsors:If you are successful in securing sponsorship makesure you keep them informed and up-to-date withyour activities.* Ensure that you service your sponsor andthat you fulfil the terms of your agreement atevents. Don’t do the wrong thing by a sponsor,word travels fast, and you could find yourselfblacklisted.* Following each race/event let the sponsor knowhow it went and keep in contact with them, letthem know of any exciting developments andinclude them in your press release list.* If, unfortunately, something goes wrong, keepyour sponsors informed.* If you receive any media coverage keep arecord of it and send them a copy.* Provide them with a yearly report to show them(in words and pictures) what you’ve done aspart of the agreement, another alternative wouldbe to provide them with a framed picture with amessage of thanks for their support included.* If for some reason a sponsor cannot continueworking with you (it happens), be goodnatured about it, politely ask for a reason, andirrespective of the answer extend them theopportunity to re-establish the relationship infuture if they are interested.


PHILOSOPHY OF GCR’Senjoy the ride36THE GENERAL COMPETITION RULESTHE PHILOSOPHY AND STRUCTURE OF THE GENERAL COMPETITION RULESNo set of Rules can anticipate every issue which may arisein the conduct of a sport, especially one with as wide avariety of disciplines and competing interests as exist inmotorcycling. The philosophy of these Rules is that goodsense, cooperation and a fair and reasonable interpretationof reasonable Rules should be more important than “RuleBook Racing”.In Rule Book Racing, if a situation arises, the answer isto be found by looking up the book, not by the exercise ofindependent judgment. If there’s no answer in the book, anew rule has to be devised to “plug the hole”. Rule BookRacing assumes that Controlling Bodies have little or nointerest in working effectively with competitors, with eachother, or with Promoters to benefit the sport and thosewho participate in it. It also assumes that officials haveno common sense or understanding of the sport. None ofthese ideas is true or fair.These rules confer on the Controlling Bodies and theirrepresentatives and officials discretion in the applicationand interpretation of the Rules. It is intended that discretionwill be exercised, as stated in the very first rule in this bookto ensure that competition is safe, free and fair.Officials are expected to exercise judgment wiselyand fairly, on the understanding that if they do not, theirdecisions, other than those made in the heat of competition,will be subject to review through protest and appeal. Theywill be trained and encouraged to take responsibility fortheir actions, and to work in a way which supports theunderlying philosophy of the Rules.Our rules should reflect the way that the sport is conducted.MA and the State Controlling Bodies (SCBs) have beencareful to ensure that there is a process in place to ensurethat every participant has the opportunity to have their sayin the way these rules are written.We actively seek constructive criticism of these Rulesand encourage participants to work through theirrepresentatives to ensure their relevance.STRUCTURE OF MANUAL OF MOTORCYCLE SPORTThis book is divided into 29 chapters.The first 14 chapters apply to all disciplines of the sport andthe rest to the specific disciplines. There will be a degreeof crossover from the first section to the specific disciplinesand some of the Rules contained in those first chaptersneed to be added to or varied according to the needs of aparticular discipline.We have attempted to make this edition of the book moreuser friendly, reinstating an index and reframing everychapter into a as close to a consistent format as possible.We have also striven to eliminate any ambiguitiesand contradictions.Chapter 1 - Jurisdiction.This chapter states the purposes and principlesunderlying the Rules. The Rules are to be applied fairlyand according to the principles of natural justice. TheseRules are binding not only on competitors but also on allControlling Bodies.There is a list of definitions which may be useful whileusing the rest of the Book.Chapter 2 - Administration.This very important chapter sets out the authority of theControlling Bodies. It identifies and empowers the peopleand the instrumentalities through which the ControllingBodies exercise their authority.MA is a member of the FIM, a federation of the controllingbodies of motorcycle sport throughout the world, and MAis a federation of which the SCBs are members. Thesignificance of this that the FIM would not exist withoutthe cooperation and involvement of its members, and thesame principle applies to MA.SCBs agree to be bound by the decisions of MA as part ofthe agreement they entered into with each other when MAwas formed. The SCBs are, in effect, the owners of MA,and their control over MA is exercised through the Board.The Board has the power under the Articles of Associationof MA to make competition Rules.Rule 2.1.2 is a very important rule which typifies thephilosophy which underpins these Rules. In providingfor the making of agreements, the Rules clear the way forresolving differences among Controlling Bodies and withPromoters, by consultation, discussion and agreementrather than by disputation and resort to a strict andlegalistic approach.The rest of the chapter identifies the roles, responsibilitiesand limits of authority of various key officials.Chapter 3 - LicensingThe primary pupose of having a licencing regime is toensure the safety of competitors.This may be applied through separating less experiencedcompetitiors from ‘old hands’ and, in the case of juniorcompetition, to ensure that all riders obtain the benefitsof a structured coaching process.Licence holders may not compete at a level higher thantheir licence.


2013 MANUAL OF MOTORCYCLE SPORTPHILOSOPHY OF GCR’SThe chapter also sets out the processes by whichcompetitors can obtain a licence, and the means bywhich applicants can appeal against the refusal of alicence or the imposition of a condition on their licence.Chapter 4 - CompetitionsThe intent of this long chapter is to codify presentpractices throughout the sport.Much of the chapter is taken up with establishing themechanisms for running competitions, and imposingthe conditions under which those competions can takeplace.The chapter also deals with breaches of these Rules,and the processes to take place in the event that theRules are breached.Chapter 5 - Offences, Protests and AppealsThe application of fair and natural justice is an inherentcondition of these rules.Where participants wish to protest against the actionsof an official or another participant, these rules ofnatural justice require a mechanism for the fair hearingof their protests, which is established in this chapter.The chapter also sets out the jurisdiction and limits ofpower of the appelate bodies.Chapter 6 - Judicial Committee GuidelinesThis chapter sets out the composition of JudicialCommittees and also provides a commentary on theprocess that the Committee undertakes to adjudicateon the matters brought before them.Chapter 7 - Sporting CommissionsOne of the functions of the Sporting Commissions isto reconcile the competing interests in any discipline.Technology and other changes mean that Commissionsneed to find a balance between ensuring that motorcyclesport is affordable to as many participants as possiblewhile not setting up a rule book circumscribed byanachronisms.Chapters 8 & 9- Accreditation SchemesAll sporting bodies need to ensure that those involvedin the development and control of the sport have thetools they need to do their jobs.The National Accreditation schemes established bythese chapters are an effort to ensure the future ofthe sport through the development and training of itsofficials and coaches.Chapter 10 - Personal Accident InsuranceThe chapter on insurance is a simple summary of thecoverage of MA’s insurance scheme, setting out thebenefits available to participants in the sport.The full details of the Personal AccidentInsurance Scheme are available in the insurancepolicy documents.Chapter 11 - MA Anti-Doping PolicyWhile the use of performance enhancing drugs is notas big an issue in motorcycle sport as in some otherfields, MA recognises the need for a comprehensiveand prescriptive program to ensure that our sport isfree from the use of illicit drugs.Guided by the principals of fair and natural justice andensuring that our sport is safe and fair, this chaptersets out the mechanisms for screening participants,the testing of samples and the consequences of beingoutside of the internationally recognised WADA code.Chapter 12 - All DisciplinesOne of the most important aspects of interpretationof these Rules is that they are permissive rather thanprohibitive. In other words, in almost all cases, theRules describe the things that may be done rather thanthe things that may not.This chapter contains the Rules which apply to alldisciplines. Any rule in one of the discipline specificchapters will, unless otherwise stated, be in addition tothe provisions of Chapter 12. So Chapter 12 and therelevant discipline chapters operate side by side.For the purposes of these Rules, the age of Juniorcompetitors is now taken as on January 1 each year.Full details are found at GCR 12.16.0.1Competitors over the age of 16 years may not competein a junior competition, subject to GCR 12.16.0.1,and a person who is under 16 may not compete in asenior competition.Chapter 13 - Australian ChampionshipsThese Rules prescribe the allocation, categories andlisting of Australian Championships.Chapters 14 to 28 - Discipline Specific ChaptersAs far as possible, the discipline specific chaptersfollow a common format as follows:1. Protective clothing 2. Frames and parts3. Engines 4. Fuel5. Classes 6. Competition rulesAppendicesThese include MA’s Occupational Health and SafetyPolicy and Environmental Sustainability Policy, both ofwhich can be found in Appendix 5 & 6 towards the rearof this Manual.37


RULES AND MAKING RULE CHANGESenjoy the rideRULES AND MAKING RULE CHANGESRules change from one year to the next, beforethey appear in the next edition of the Manual ofMotorcycle Sport.Ever wondered how this happens?Feedback on current rules is sent through to therelevant Commissions, either through one of theCommissioners themselves, the Commission Chair orthe Manager – Commissions and Committees at MA.Rules are sometimes altered to make the competitioneasier or fairer, sometimes to reflect new technologyor equipment that has become availlable. Sometimesrules are altered so that their meaning is made clearer.Your feedback is encouraged and is always welcomewith regards to the rules.We would like to know about any ways you think wecan make the sport better for our competitors.To put forward a suggested rule amendment or ruleinclusion, see the Rule Amendment or Inclusion Formon page 41.If the relevant Commission decides to pursue this rulefeedback further, it will open the issue up to the SCBsand to the general public for comment and discussion.Depending on the input, the Commission will then eitherscrap the proposal or make an official recommendationwith the wording of change put forward through theManager – Commissions and Committees.The suggested rule change is then added onto theagenda of the following Board meeting by the Manager– Commissions and Committees.The MA Board will then decide to accept or reject theproposed rule change.If rejected, this will be reflected in the Board Minutes,and Board Report – the later which will becomeavailable for public viewing at the MA Reports sectionof the MA website - www.ma.org.auIf accepted, the rule will be appear in bold as anamended rule in the Manual of Motorcycle Sport for thefollowing year.Rules which have been deleted from the previousManual will appear as crossed out.IMMEDIATE RULE CHANGESWhat happens when rules are required to be changedwith immediate effect?There are times – especially at the start of the year,where a rule will need amending or clarification withimmediate impact on the current MoMS. When thisoccurs the same process as above will take place,however, after the Board’s decision, a number of otherthings will occur.Initially, the Manager – Commissions and Committeesis informed that the appropriate rule has been amendedand passes this information onto the CommunicationsManager. The Communications Manager will thencreate a Media Release to inform the public of therule change.Once created, the release gets sent via the Manager– Commissions and Committees, to the relevantCommission Chair / Commissioners so that theycan review the wording of the release before it ismade public. Changes to the release at this pointcan still be made, with Commissioners to suggestappropriate amendments.Once approved through the Commission, the MediaRelease can then be sent to the motorcycling publicvia email. This release will also be posted immediatelyonto the MA website.Further to this, a one-page Rule Change InformationBulletin will be sent out to SCB’s, to on-send to affiliatedclubs. This will be done via a standard Rule Changetemplate, so that the club can post this information ontheir own relevant bulletin boards. The InformationBulletins will also be posted onto the MA website. Anexample of the Rule Change Information Bulletin canbe found on the next page.Clubs will have the right to respond and givefeedback regarding the rule change via the usualmeans of communication – sending written feedbackto a Commission via the Manager – Commissionsand Committees.All rule changes, clarifications, news and informationbulletins will be available under the Rules section of theMA website.38
