Rules for the 2018/2019 season

General


Every driver will get a special ETS T-shirt for their first event of the season. Every driver who participates in 5 or 6 races this season will get a special gift at the season finale.

Practice:
All racers are only permitted to put 1 car on the track during each practice run.  The use of 2 cars per practice run has gotten out of hand and will no longer be allowed.  This goes for all open practice on Thursday as well as all practice on Friday.   This rule is for all classes, all racers and all teams.  Again only 1 car per practice run. If you want to try a different car on your next practice run, that is fine. But only 1 car per run.

Power Supplies:
We have seen the use of small computer power supplies starting to be used by many racers and this cannot be allowed. The insurance we carry for ETS states that the equipment we use must be CE certified and these power supplies are not certified electric components so we cannot allow these.  The danger of using these are to great and we must have concern for everyones safety.
