Rules Enquiry

Important note to all teams

Please be advised that you are requested to hold any queries you are planning to submit relating to the SES relating to whether you may be wanting to enter a 2019 or a 2020 car this year; or whether you should be using a 2019 or 2020 SES; or any differences between the 2019 and 2020 SES.

At this time we are considering the details of how we will hold the 2020 event in the Covid19 environment. We hope to resolve this, with formal announcements, in the next few weeks, which will clarify some of the aspects of your questions.  In the meantime, please hold your SES questions and then submit or resubmit, as new questions, any issues which may then be present after the detail announcements have been made.   

Subsequent announcements will include directions regarding any SES submissions and how we will administer them. 

Questions which relate specifically to the 2020 Rules or 2020 Addendum, and relate to your vehicle design, which may also have related SES implications, may still be submitted.

Submitting a Rules Enquiry

Before you submit a rules enquiry:

  1. Check the Rules Q&A Document to see if your query has already been answered.  
  2. Ask your Team Leader or Faculty Advisor.  In many cases they will be able to assist you. 
If you still need help, you must submit your query via the formal rules enquiry procedure to the Rules Committee, using the "Ask a Question" link below. 


The Rules Committee may require further information from the team prior to finalising an answer and may also require review of the team’s FMEA for major variations or new concepts.

Response Time

Please allow a minimum of two (2) weeks for a response. The Rules Committee will respond as quickly as possible, however responses to questions presenting new issues, or of unusual complexity, may take more than two weeks.  Please do not send emails as this will only slow down the process.
