When there are multiple competitors for one car, at least (5) minutes must elapse between any runs in that vehicle. A single competitor may not register to drive in more than one car or class at a single event.
Numbers: Vehicle numbers are selected at registration. A competitor may usually keep the same number throughout the season. Car number and class must be prominently displayed on both sides of the car on each run. Only one number and class may be displayed at a time.

Penalties: A penalty of (2) seconds will be added to the raw time of a competitor for each pylon knocked over or out of the marked box.
