I know there has been issues in the past over this public forum being abused and posts turning into what has been percieved as badgering. But when questions regarding interpretation of certain rules come up, does anyone from wmrc have a problem with this format being used to get clarification?
it mentions in the rulebook that (in pertaining to race numbers)
* novice - black numbers on a yellow background from 700-900
is this stating that a novices plate number must fall between 700-900?
the reason I'm asking for clarification is in the next section it mentions
4.9 At the end of each racing season, when racers renew their competition licenses, they will also apply for their competition numbers (the number that appears on their number plates) for the upcoming season. Every effort will be made to give each racer the competition number desired. Priority will be given to racers who have already competed

and/or have long established competition numbers. The WMRC will hold the previous season’s competition numbers until the end of February of the new season (when membership renewals are due). 4.10 Priority will be given to keeping all WMRC competition numbers as low as possible (i.e. one or two digits) to keep scoring and bookkeeping simple. Lower numerical competition numbers that are not already renewed or chosen by established competitors will be available on a first come, first served basis on March 1st of each year.
does this mean after march 1st even a novice can apply for a number outside of the 700-900 series?
The reason I ask is I have a grandfather who fought in wwII as a squadron leader for a group of lancasters. In the past I've made an effort to use his squadrons number as my plate in a show of respect and support for those who fought for freedom during that time, as well as to remind him (and me) of how proud I am of the sacrifices that he had to make, and the courage it must have taken to stand up for what he believed in, in otherwords, it has personal meaning.
His squadron number is in the 400's and so that's why I'm asking.
If novices are restricted to 700-900 regardless, I'll just have work my way up in order to qualify for that number.
hope this is an acceptable question.
