Our rules and regulations are simple and effective, we will cater from standard production out the showroom floor vehicles to fully prepared race cars. All cars will make use of DOT approved road legal tyres. We will run the first portion of the day with qualifying rounds, the final portion of the day will be the class shootouts and an overall top 20 shootout.
