DONNELLSON, Iowa – Questions have been raised about the rule package that has been adopted for the “Break Ice not Hearts 50,” hopefully this new release will clear up some of those questions.
IMCA rules will be used as a base set of rules. Car types that are legal in sport compact rules are legal. Other none performance based rules will not be enforced.
Focus points for the event will include tires no wider than 60 series (no other restrictions) and no variable valve timing. Otherwise if your car’s powerplant falls with the rules the car will be considered legal.
Questions have also been brought up about OEM bodies. Since these are not performance enhancing items the rules pertaining to them will not be enforced. Also, after market radiators will be allowed.
Some of our local cars ran a aftermarket header last year and may not have began work for the 2012 season. Therefore cars that qualified in that regard under the 2011 LCS rulebook will be considered legal for this event.
It is important also to point out that full saftey gear is required including a suitable rollcage as well as basic personal safety equipment. These items will be checked and cars not deemed safe by on site technical personnel will not be allowed to compete.
Again if there are any questions or if there are any doubts about your car being legal please contact Dewain at 309-331-3804 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
