As a result of discussion of the VMSVC association members some sections of the regulation for the Student Designed Cars have been modified. These changes are in relation to the running of the event and do not impact section 9 and hence any team design or construction using the previous regulations can proceed without interruption. All teams are encouraged to read the newly published regulations so that they understand how the event will be run in October.
