Displaying competition numbers in normal use is illegal, the rest is just a sticker....

Agree with what Dunx says I did all the rounds last year drove to all the events and back had to put a bit of black tape over my number for driving on the road. If its just for a track car and being trailered it woulnt be a problem.Even better tax/mot the car and enter this years event if SBD hurrys up and pulls his finger out and gets the dates up.

AFAIK driving too and from a MSA event is illegal with door numbers, as Scoobysprint isnt recognised by the MSA (AFAIK?) then you should/could/might get away with it

Might have a wee look around for a definate answer to this one

The same question has been asked on the mini forum and somebody sent off an email to the Polis

Door Numbers - Official Police View - The Mini Forum

Same question was emailed to Lothian and Borders Police in Scotland

Their view is exactly the same


Dear Chris,

Thank you for your email, which has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

I forwarded your question to our Road Policing department, which has confirmed that door numbers are not illegal. Window numbers would only be illegal if the driver's forward or side vision was impaired.

I trust this will be of some assistance to you. If you have any questions about the above or I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me again.

Kind regards,

Gabriella Trybalska
Force Information Unit
Lothian and Borders Police

SECTION 143:

Any means of identifying individual cars during a
competition MUST be removed at the finish of the
event.
which basically goes with what I thought about it

I used to road rally in the 70's, and I doubted much had changed since....
