How AROC Supports Competition
People have been racing Alfa Romeos since they first rolled out of the factory. AROC supports this tradition by providing a set of safety and competition guidelines for all chapters as well as insurance for these events. This takes the guesswork out of holding a competition event and helps to relieve the often overwhelming costs incurred for insurance.
To this end, available for download on this page, you will find the national code for all moving car events, as well as the other documents necessary for those events. Contained in it are event participant vehicle classification and safety guidelines for the individual car owner/driver as well as for the event host chapter. The purpose of this code is twofold:
- To maintain an acceptable level of safety during moving car events. Any time you get behind the wheel of a car there is going to be some risk. With the proper precautions and safety gear in place those risks can be minimized and you can be relatively confident this won’t be the last time you get to drive your baby.
- The second purpose of the code is to group you with other cars having the same speed potential. Driver’s skill is up to you, but you won’t have to put your stock spider up against a fire breathing tube frame dedicated racecar.
The base/modification points system allows you to determine which class you should compete in and helps the event organizers form run groups. The first time you classify your car can be a little daunting, but once you get the hang of it you will find the system is simple to use and very logical.
I hope to see you and your Alfa out on the street, track, or parking lot some time soon!!
