  • 2011-RAT-LSCC-Restrict Driver to Sanctioned Track

    Proposal: Once a driver has begun participating in a Council sanctioned event, that driver and car cannot run on any other venue (including public and private roadways, race tracks, or thoroughfares) without permission of the event's Chief Steward; who shall include in his or her decisioning the reason(s) behind the request and any possible competitive advantage gained through the request as well as attaching any conditions to the request which can include, but not be limited to, length of sit down period between running on non-sanctioned venue and returning to the sanctioned venue.

    Reason: Currently a driver can leave the MC sanctioned venue to warm tires, test changes, etc. without restriction. This negates any advantages available to a driver or car that as access to another venue (track, road, etc.) without permission from the Chief Steward who is in the best postion to determine if an unfair advantage might be had and establish conditions to a request to run on the non-sactioned venue that levels the playing field for the rest of the competitors.

    Could I assume that this would effect only races run at the Autobahn? Preventing a driver from driving his or her car that is street legal from driving it on public roads is a no go as far as I'm concerned. What if they need to get fuel and don't want to pay track prices for that fuel? Preventing a driver from taking their car on the "other" track at AB if that driver is an AB member would be OK, IMO.

      The intent was not to restrict a driver from being able to leave the track and get fuel, parts, etc. At this time, ABCC is likely the only track this would come into play.
