BODY PROTECTORS

The Committee has been in contact with BC with regard to the compulsory wearing of body protectors and have asked the following question with regard to their ruling:

"Can a club choose to opt out of this rule?

BC replies: As to opting out of the new rule, the position is that the rule will apply at any event run in accordance with BC’s rules. BC cannot force any club to adopt our rules, but our expectation is that affiliated clubs will do so. I am not aware of any clubs opting out.

Furthermore they state that:

“The insurance policy does not specify that all persons on the carriage must wear a body or back protector and the response to the FAQ did not say that not wearing a back protector would be a breach of the condition.”

With these responses in mind the Club has decided that whilst it recommends the use of body protectors, it will not make it compulsory. If BC insists that we must comply with their new ruling then the Club will revisit the rulebook.”

(See Rule 28 with regard to Junior Drivers)
