Important Note
If it's not in the rules, and does not encompass the spirit of slower, controlled racing with realistic looking cars, consider it illegal. This is called the "Spirit of Competition" Rule. The class is based on slower, equal playing field competition with less traction, minimal aerodynamic aids. The final objective is close, fair, wheel-to-wheel racing for all. All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final.
