2. Introduction Welcome to the ANDRA Rulebook Supplement. This Supplement to the ANDRA 2019/ 2020 Rulebook has been developed by ANDRA to provide a quick and handy reference for Exhibition Classes. ANDRA hope that this is a useful addition for members and welcome any feedback on the publication. In future we hope to include more classes and applicable advertising. To ensure that ANDRA do not pass the costs of this publication onto our members, this supplement will only be distributed in soft format via the ANDRA website. Enjoy your racing!

3. A Note from ANDRA Technical This Rulebook Supplement is divided into two sections; Administration and Class Regulations. For additional regulations please refer to the ANDRA Rulebook. Suggestions for improvement, clarity of rules and error identification are welcomed. If an ANDRA Member claims that there is any ambiguity in these regulations, they shall present their claim in writing (email) to ANDRA Technical, who shall investigate the claim. No claim shall be presented during the running of any event or during the five (5) day period preceding any ANDRA Championship Event. Any claim proving a requirement for a

Any person considering construction or importation of any Jet Powered vehicle must submit the detailed design to ANDRA for consideration and possible approval prior to construction or importation. Where Jet Engines are used, reports on their condition, fitting and associated controls must be provided to ANDRA, after construction, prior to testing at ANDRA facilities. These reports must be obtained in writing from recognised civil or military aviation authorities. No motorcycles or three-wheeled vehicles will be considered in this category Performance; Maximum speed limits are strictly enforced. Dragsters - 320 mph (515 kph) Funny Cars - 305 mph (491 kph) Trucks - 200 mph (322 kph) Class Regulations. Engine; Maximum of one thrust engine permitted for Dragsters and Funny Cars. Use of multiple engines to a maximum of three (3) permitted for trucks providing they adhere to the subsequent rules and specifications and do not exceed 200 mph. Engine attitude must have down thrust, minimum of 1 degree front down angle. No internal modifications permitted. All engines must be run within manufacturer’s maximum allowable rpm % and military power and temperature specifications. ANDRA personnel may check data loggers to verify that these limits are being adhered to during events.

Some engine/ chassis mountings may require “slip joints” to be incorporated to allow for engine growth during operation. A turbine safety “containment shield” must be fitted and is to extend at least 3 inches fore and aft of turbine wheels, shields to be constructed of Steel to a thickness of at least 3/16 inch and be mounted with opening at bottom so as to encompass at least the top 3/4 of engine circumference. Compressor section containment shielding is optional. Combustion chamber shielding for GE J-85 powered Funny Cars, refer to “Driver Location” below.

Engine Mounts; Where OEM engine mounts are used, the portion of the chassis directly behind the driver’s Rollcage will be constructed with a barrier welded to the chassis a minimum of 300 mm from the rearmost point of the driver’s Rollcage at the base and contacting the top of the Rollcage. The barrier will have a 3 mm thick Mild Steel skin welded to the engine side. The barrier will be constructed from the same material, diameter and wall thickness as the chassis. Unsupported tubes longer than 300 mm must be braced to the chassis. The barrier is intended to protect the driver from the engine moving forwards in a frontal impact. Where non-OEM engine mountings are used or exceed OEM they will be approved on a case by case basis, however all mountings and barriers should exist to mitigate against risk of the engine or heat getting into the driver’s compartment in the event of an incident.

Afterburner Tailpipe; Stainless Steel or Inconel is recommended for afterburner tailpipes fitted to jet powered vehicles. A thickness of .060 inch is also recommended to help prevent heat and vibration cracking. For longitudinal butt welds, the seams must be on the bottom. Overlap seam welds are acceptable and should be at the bottom where possible. Placement will be at the discretion of the Technical Inspector or on providing a written report from a civil or military aviation authority.

Safety; The vehicle will be constructed to ensure the maximum safety for the driver, Track Officials and spectators. Turbine Running Safety Guidelines and Emergency Procedures; Starting, running and emergency procedures for jet powered vehicles can vary greatly from one engine manufacturer to the next, however, the general safety principals outlined herein should be adhered to whenever possible. These safety principles should be considered as an appendix to the current ANDRA safety and emergency procedures and the engine manufacturer’s maintenance manual with regards to temperatures, pressures and rpm limits etc. Engine starting procedures are usually outlined in the engine manufacturer’s maintenance and/or service manuals, however when fitted to a Jet Dragster, Funny Car or Truck, these procedures can be difficult to follow as the external engine controls, external plumbing and fuel supply systems will be considerably different. Since engine internal configurations of the many engine types will generally be to the manufacturer’s specifications, the engine manufacturer’s rpm, oil pressure and egt limits should still be observed wherever possible. Firefighting safety crew and equipment must be present during all running of jet powered vehicles. All crew must be well versed in the use of firefighting equipment and procedures. Vehicles will be running Jet-A1, Avgas, Kerosene and/or Diesel fuel; a small amount of gasoline/ petrol is often used for starting purposes on jet powered vehicles.
