Things to be aware of…


C10.1 Car repairs

C10.1.1 All damage issues and related repair work during racing is at the Judge’s discretion and may be referred to the scrutineering Judges and/or Chair of Judges for a final decision.

C10.1.2 No items can be removed or added to a car during racing, other than CO2 cartridges, except in the case of a repair.

C10.1.3 If the primary race car sustains damage during racing and this damage is ruled to be related to engineering deficiencies and the damage can be repaired using any of the defined replacement components then repairs will be allowed, otherwise the back-up race car will be reverted to immediately and a 5 point penalty will be applied. Any repairs using replacement components that can be safely performed in under 30 seconds will not incur any race penalty points. The 30 seconds will start when the race official places the damaged car on the official repair table. The repaired car must be ready to be raced at the end of the 30 seconds otherwise the back-up race car will be reverted to and the team will incur a 5 point penalty for this race event. This may include but not limited to car body, wings & wheels being damaged as part of racing including damage occurring within the deceleration area.

C10.1.4 Team members will be allowed to make ‘trackside’ repairs to the damaged car as racing continues.

C10.1.5 If the back-up car is damaged and cannot be repaired as per C10.1.3 then the repaired primary car will be reverted to and another 5 point penalty will be applied.

C10.1.6 The judges may choose to suspend racing in order that repairs can be made.

C10.1.7 If the judges rule that damaged sustained was not due to engineering deficiencies, immediate repairs or revert to back-up car will be permitted without penalty.

C10.1.8 No penalty is applied for damage incurred during knock-out racing or a team’s final race of any race event.


C11.1 Submitting a protest

Any protest issues must be submitted by the team manager to an Event Director, who will register this and immediately lodge it with the Chair of Judges. Any protest or appeals submitted after this time may be disregarded. All protests must be lodged in writing via the official protest form available from the Event Directors. The Chair of Judges decision related to any protest is final.

C11.2 Unsuccessful protests

Teams should carefully consider their grounds for submitting a protest or appeal. Any protest or appeal that is unsuccessful, with the Judges initial decision remaining unchanged, will result in the team having a 15 point penalty applied against their total score.


C12.1 Overview

There will be six (6) teams of judges plus officials that form the entire judging panel. Each judging team will have one (1) judge appointed as the Lead Judge. Judges are nominees from ICC’s and other education and industry experts invited by F1 in Schools. All judges sign a ‘declaration’ to ensure there are no conflicts of interest with respect to judges and the teams they are judging.

C12.2 Chair of Judges (National and World Finals only)

This is an independent authority appointed by F1 in Schools who oversees all judging procedures. The Chair of Judges will determine the final judging decision where a protest has been submitted or other judging issue needs resolution. The Chair of Judges will also preside over a meeting of all Lead Judges to ratify the final results along with nominations and winners for relevant awards.
