Cars marking the track through the inappropriate use of additives will be excluded from the meeting. Cars may be scrutineered at any time as directed by the Race Controller. Any car found to be infringing its class rules may be excluded from the meeting and any points scored by its driver that evening will be deleted from the results. The use of reverse is banned for all classes and must be disabled in any ESC fitted with this facility. If using LiPo’s, charging inside a fireproof sack is mandatory inside the hall.
