    Any damage that would make the car illegal, such as the loss of a major part of the body, interior, or a
    car dragging on the track surface must be repaired within 3 laps. You will be black flagged after the 3rd
    lap.(The power will be turned off on your lane).
    Cars will be impounded after qualifying. Cars may not be touched by driver or pit crew until the power
    comes on in warm up.
    Lane change is the driver’s responsibility. No compensation will be given for incorrect changing of lanes.
    The racer must race body & frame presented at tech; all other parts may be changed.

    Race Day Procedures


    Qualifying

    There will be no qualifying for 11 drivers or less. Lane choice will be randomly selected.
    If there are12 or more entries the qualifying order will be randomly selected.
    Qualifying will be for 30 seconds on a lane selected by the race director.
    Overall ranking will be determined by the total laps and sections.
    Ties will be broken by the best lap time and then the order of tech in.
    Any driver who misses their qualifying time will be ranked in last position.

    Race

    Every race will be run as a main starting with the slowest and ending with the fastest. (i.e. C-main runs
    before the B-main, and the B-main runs before the A-main.)
    If there are 12 or less entries a round robin will be run.
    If possible the number of drivers in each main will be equal; if not the mains will be filled from the
    slowest to the fastest (i.e. if there are 13 racers there will be 7 in the B-main and 6 in the A-main).
    There will be a 2 minute warm-up before each main.
    Each driver will race for 2 minutes on each color in 1/32nd production and group 10; 3 minutes in BProduction;
    4 minutes in Open Group 12; and 5 min in 1/24 Eurosport.
    There will be a 1 minute intermission between heats in all races.
    Work may be done on cars at any time during the race, or during the lane change in 1/32nd production,
    Group 10, B-Production, and Open Group 12.
    Work may not be performed during the lane change during 1/24th Eurosport. The only things that may
    be done to the car during the lane change are changing the lane sticker, pushing in body pins (not
    replacing), and straightening the braid (not replacing). Any other work must be done when the power is
    on. A 50 lap penalty will be imposed if anyone is found in violation of this rule.

    Marshaling

    Drivers, at the end of their main, must marshal the next main or whenever called upon. Drivers in the Amain
    must marshal the first main of the race (i.e. – in the event of 3 mains, the A-main driver will
    marshal for the C-main, the C-main will marshal for the B-main, and the B-main will marshal for the Amain.)
    The number of marshals must be the same in each main.
    You will be disqualified for failure to marshal & will forfeit payout & points

    Track Calls

    For an unmarshalable car (i.e. In the middle of the straight in front of the drivers; under a bride or in the
    middle of the track where a marshal cannot reach).
    A car on the floor near the track is NOT a track call. A car on the floor under the track when the marshal
    must climb under the track IS a track call.
    Regardless of the number of cars off in a single corner, it is NOT a track call.
    A warning will be given for the first illegal track call & a 5 lap penalty for each successive call.

    Classification

    After each main, a drivers finishing position will be a result of the sum of the laps completed and the last
    lap sections. The number of laps made can only be a result of the lap counter. No lap correction is made
    for lane jumping (riders) or missed counting due to the cars braid. The race director must check the lap
    counting system if there is a sustained problem. If a problem with the lap counter occurs, then the race
    director must rerun the current segment. If the lap counter fails to operate, the raceway must provide a
    spotter to count laps.

    Any chance the ProSlot or JK mini can setups might be allowed as X12s for open 12? (ceramics of course) B Production for that matter if there is an appropriate arm.
    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing

    We in the Chicago area ISRA/USA group have allowed the PS-FK minimotor in the B-production and JRL classes as alternate motor options to grp-11 and S-16D. No one has run the S16D in years, but we tried the JK Hawk FK/Falcon-7 groups and they have very different braking distances than the "C' cans. The PS-FK works better as an entry level and we score them separately. I support the idea of the mini grp 12 in the puppydog setups as well for open grp 12 class.
