To all VSC Scrutineers and VSC Standard Saloon Owners.
It has been brought to the VSC Technical Committee attention that the 2014 – 2017 VSC Standard Saloon Specification Manual contains the following sentence:
“All electric fuel pumps must be fitted with engine monitoring relay to stop fuel pump running when engine stops.”
The sentence has been added to section 17. FUEL/FUEL TANK in error.
At this time this specification has not been ratified for VSC Standard Saloons and is not to be enforced.
Yours sincerely
Lynne Jenkins
Technical Committee Secretary

No Jerry Cans in VSC Classes Effective 1 August 2016
WHEELS
VSC GOS and Unlimited Sedans, 10mm of wheel stud to be through end of wheel nut if wheel spacer or wheel adaptor used. Effective 1 August 2016
Reason: to make sure full thread of wheel nut is engaged to stop wheels coming out.
Seals -
VSC has blue twist seals similar to SSA/VSCF seals. These will be used as an identifier seal only. They do not indicate the engine or part has been inspected and sealed.
At this point in time the brass VSC is used to identify engines that have been inspected and sealed as complying with class specifications.
The blue twist seal can be fitted to an engine or part at any time without a seal sheet.
They can be left in place for any length of time or removed when necessary, as long as the engine or part is not needed for a technical inspection. (i.e. seal sheet filled in as per policy and procedure)
If the engine or parts need to be inspected at a later date the seal numbers and all information required on the appropriate VSC engine seal form at that time.
At this point in time it is not compulsory to have the twist seal fitted to be able to race.
It may later be compulsory for some or all classes to have the twist seal fitted to be able to race.
