Licence Upgrade Fee: This is the difference between your new licence grade and your current licence. You are required to pay this figure when upgrading any existing current licence. The upgrade fee will be calculated on a pro-rata scale dependent on the expiry date of the upgraded licence.
Priority fee and manual processing charges: It is the policy of MotorSport NZ to process all applications submitted through the MotorSport Online system within three(3) working days of receipt. Should a quicker service be required a priority fee will be charged, this being 50% of relevant fee in addition to the standard fee. Licence applications not submitted via the MotorSport Online system will incur the additional manual processing charge.

Pursuant to Article 48 of the NSC, when a competitor is unable to produce his/her licence then;

  • if the licence is proved to be valid in the MotorSport Online system, the penalty in accordance with Appendix One Schedule P will be applied, or
  • if the licence is proved to be invalid in the MotorSport Online system or the Online System cannot be accessed at the Event, the Steward of the Meeting is required to take from the competitor a completed licence application form (including a medical declaration where applicable), plus the applicable fee for the grade required, plus a priority fee of 50% of the applicable fee for the grade required. In cases where the applicant has a current licence the fee will be refunded by MotorSport NZ, less the 50% priority fee.
The Board may determine the fees or charges payable for any particular event irrespective of the fees notated.
All international events are subject to FIA fees, which are charged to organisations at cost plus a handling fee in addition to any fees or charges assessed by MotorSport NZ. If an organiser anticipates promoting an international event an assessment of these fees should be obtained from MotorSport NZ Inc.
The rally permit relates to a rally involving competition within a maximum of two days (48 hours including documentation and audit scrutineering). Any day or part day after this period carries a further permit fee. Remote safety audits, as described in Appendix Two Schedule A, shall be included as part of the duration of any permit issued, however any such audit shall not count towards the maximum time of the permit.
The Board at its absolute discretion may require a bond to be placed against payment of fees and/or prize-money and against performance of organisers to meet their obligations.

If the protest requires the dismantling and re-assembly of different parts of a car, the protester must pay an additional deposit of:

$500.00 plus GST (or such higher amount as may be determined by the Stewards) if the protest involves a clearly defined part of the car (engine, transmission, steering, braking system, electrical installation, bodywork, etc.), or
$1000.00 plus GST (or such higher amount as may be determined by the Stewards) if the protest involves more than one defined part of the vehicle, or.
Should the protest not be upheld then the reasonable costs of disassembly, inspection and assembly shall be met by the protestor. When these costs are in excess of the deposit, the additional costs are to be borne by the protestor and when there is a lesser cost, a refund may be made.
Publications: From time to time MotorSport NZ will publish schedules containing information or regulations which may incur a production charge.
In addition to the venue licence fee stated MotorSport NZ shall charge the Event organiser the costs of all inspection visits deemed necessary to ensure that the venue is of a standard suitable for a Venue Licence.
The Inspection Deposit is taken to offset costs of processing the application and initial inspections (Refer to Appendix One Schedule Y, Part Two Article 4.1(3) for further details), the initial and any subsequent on-site inspections deemed necessary by MotorSport NZ will be charged by MotorSport NZ. The inspection deposit less inspection costs will be refunded when all inspections are completed. Should expenses incurred exceed the inspection deposit the additional cost will remain the care of the organisation making the application.
Performance Bonds (which cover Safety and Programme Adherence, Event proceeding, Payment of Sporting Fees, Prizes and all costs directly due to member clubs). The Board of MotorSport NZ may at its sole discretion vary the requirements of the foregoing.
MotorSport NZ’s insurers reserve the right to assess MotorSport NZ’s risk factor for all new and temporary venues.
An additional 50% of the original application fee or upgrade fee will be charged when applications under Article 5 (Technical Services) of this Schedule are not completed specifically to the technical requirements of the application.
Technical Service Fees will be applied where additional work or manpower is required on behalf of any application beyond normal processing functions or where any technical inspection takes more than one hour in duration.
National Race with Clubmans class refer to National Race. Clubmans permit fee for Clubmans Class only.
When a Member Club takes out more than one Organising Permit for an event held on the same day at the same location, only the highest Organising Permit Fee will be charged.
