Any Team during the race that feels another Team has breached the the rules will need to post a $50.00 fee to protest. All protest fees will be returned if the protest is upheld. All monies for failed protests will be kept by the ScaleRacing Center.
Any Team who has a concern regarding procedure or legal operation of another Teams car will file a protest. Please do not wait till after the Event ends and Teams leave as this gives the
ScaleRacing Center no chance to prove one way or another if the car or Team have broken the rules.
This Event while serious, as it is an investment of 24 hours of each Teams time, is supposed to be fun and people seeking to ruin that may not be invited back for future Events.
