2019 national vehicle specifications released

The 2019 Australian Human Powered Vehicle Racing Design & Construction Specifications have been released. Changes for 2019 have been kept to a minimum and are mostly clarifying items where there has been some ambiguity. The requirement for guarding on the return side of chain rings has been removed as has the reference to a slalom test at Scrutineering. Item 4.10.9 has been added to clarify the requirements for securing opening panels. 7.1.3 has been been simplified. Item 7.2.5 requiring waterproofing of warning devices has been removed.
