Much could be added to these specifications,
but it is not the idea to create hardships, arguments or policing but to
create a sport and hobby that will pay and that will last. Your cooperation
will make this possible. It is the intention to keep the cars as
near stock as possible to allow everyone an equal chance, not only to win but
to also stay in the game. IF YOU DO NOT QUALIFY, PLEASE DO NOT EMBARRAS
YOURSELF OR OTHERS BY TRYING TO GET BY. For the above reasoning
there will be no contesting procedure but if the majority of the drivers and
owners or management feel that a car is outlaw or is jeopardizing the show,
it will be necessary for that car’s owner to validate his car and / or driver
before being allowed to return to competition. The management reserved
the right to bar any car at any time.
