If it's not in the rules, and does not encompass the spirit of a controlled racing class, consider it illegal. 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.
