ALL NEW CLASS INFO AND REGULATIONS

Basic vehicle

· Must be safe to drive, working brakes, handbrake, engine can be killed quickly by switch or key, no leaky fuel tanks or lines, etc, etc.

· Batteries must be well secured

· You must have a working horn

· A fire extinguisher must be carried, minimum 1.75L, AFFF type and secured well

· Good recovery mounts on the front and rear of the vehicle

· An additional throttle spring must be fitted

· Working harnesses or seatbelts must be fitted

· Battery must be fitted with an isolator switch

· Vehicles do not need to be road legal, but anything unsafe will not pass scrutineering:tongue

Roll cages/roll over protection

Roll cages are not mandatory, but we would prefer if they were fitted especially in the more modified classes.

We have no specific rules on cage design. The MSA and ALRC have excellent guidance or cage design construction and we recommend following their documentation.

It’s expected that you will navigate obstacles and terrain that your vehicle is safe to deal with, so adopt a common sense approach.

The only exception is soft-top vehicles must have some form of roll over protection, in the case of a suzuki SJ the existing body hoop is acceptable, a canvas stick frame on a land rover isn’t. If you need clarification please contact us.

Winch/recovery equipment specific

· Gloves must be worn when handling and operating winches.

· Winch blankets must be used.

· Winch(s) must be fitted with an isolator switch (wired from the battery isolator is acceptable).

· Strops must be used when using tree’s as anchor points.

· Shackles should be rated and of appropriate strength for your vehicle.

· All recovery equipment must be well secured to prevent injury.

· Plasma ropes must be in good condition.

Event specific

· Car number stickers/sponsorship stickers must be displayed on your vehicle for the duration of the challenge series, if removed you will be charged £10 for replacements.

· Marshalls are on site for spectator safety and your safety. If you have any issue with a marshal, please report it to the head marshal. Any abuse of a marshal verbal or physical will not be tolerated.

· Helmets are recommended but optional.

· All drivers must be a Mud Monsters club member, co-drivers do not.

Vehicle Classes

Mud Monsters breaks trucks down into 3 classes on a points system.

Each winch is 1 point

Tyres 35inch or more 1 point (Will be measured from side to side on the day)

Each non factory fit axle differential traction aid (locker, lsd etc) is a 1 point.

Fiddle brakes are 1 point

Class 2 (modified)

2 or less points, this is where most people will fall, front winch and maybe some big tyres or a locker.

Class 3 (Challenge)

3 points or more, where the big boys play, multiple winches, full lockers

Class 4 (Supermod)[/u]

This is a new class, if your vehicle has any of these items you belong in this class:

· tyres bigger than 37inch (Will be measured from side to side on the day)

· rear steer

· portal axles

· hydraulic/pneumatically adjustable suspension

· Full hydraulic steering

At Mud Monsters we run a point system which seems to work well and gives you a good chance to win the prizes which ever class you are in. This works in the way that the higher the class your vehicle falls in the less points you get per punch. this means the super mods need more punches than the modified class to win. We do still break each class down tho for trophies for first, second and third.
