***Latest Information - 1st April 2015***

After further consideration and a close analysis of the performance of the varying capacities of these machines (between 600 and 1000cc) and with consideration to the different venues we have in the championship calendar we have decided to have only one class for the first year of this Championship.

With this decision, engine tuning and over boring of engines is permitted and free but will be limited to the use of a maximum capacity of 1000cc production motorcycle original engine types.

Tyres are as currently permitted in 2015 for RSA/Motorsport Ireland regulations and the fuel type is free.

All machines must have a secure device fitted which can be opened from outside the cab, that prevents the drivers body parts becoming outside the cab structure in the event of a roll over. FIA approved harnesses must be 'in date', a minimum capacity 1 litre fire extinguisher must be fitted inside the cab and in the interests of driver safety, side protection 'nerf type' impact bars to prevent rear wheel frontal contact  with marker tyres and similar objects will be mandatory by round two at Nutts Corner.

Only 'Registered' competitors are eligible to earn championship points for this 2015 RSA Irish Race Buggy Tarmac Championship and registration can be made at a cost of £30 by each competitors second round. All registration fees in full will go towards the prize fund and trophies for the final championship awards and additional sponsored awards will also be presented.

The 2015 Race Buggy Champion will also qualify for free entries for the 2016 RSA Irish Championship worth an estimated £1000!

Non-registered drivers are still welcome to compete at any round but will not be able to earn championship points.

This Championship is open to ALL machines types that satisfy our technical requirements under scrutiny.

Special Information for Nova/Corsa Challenge Cars - Class 1 & 2

Class 1 and Class 2 competitors are advised that we will be conducting detailed random scrutiny at every event from now on to enforce compliance of the class regulations as of October 2012, details of which are available by selecting the appropriate button on the left side of the homepage.

Several championships have now passed since the regulations were updated as a result of competitor requests and we will enforce these regulations in full. We expect serious competitors to comply with these regulations and be advised that we will not permit any non compliant car to compete in either class 1 or 2 until we are satisfied that it concurs to the class regulations.

It is in competitors interest to ensure that cars conform to the RSA regulations and the appropriate bolts are drilled ready for mandatory sealing. Any car found to be unsuitable or unprepared for sealing to comply for the regulations for class 1 or 2 will not be permitted to run in the challenge classes but will be allowed to compete in class 3.
