Sounds like there was a little drama in the Intermediate Truggy class today. Apparently there's several racers running intermediate with chassis sponsors, I'm confused as to why they would allow this when it states explicitly in the rules that those drivers would have to bump to expert. Anyone have anymore info on this?

You cannot run in Intermediate if any of the following applies.

#1. You have a chassis sponsorship from a manufacturer or distributor. It does not matter what percentage the sponsorship is.
#2. If you race in expert in one class you must race in expert in all classes. Example - you cannot race in expert buggy and intermediate arena truck. If you feel your good enough to run in expert buggy then you will have to run in expert arena truck or if you feel you are good enough for expert arena truck then you must run in expert buggy.

#3. Some racers have picked up sponsors part way through a year because of their performance during the year. As much as we enjoy seeing these people get recognized the Intermediate (sportsman) class is designed for new racers and racers who just want to go have fun. We don’t like to bump a racer to expert part way through the year especially in a points series, [B][B]however if you pickup a chassis sponsor or we find you listed as a team driver on a chassis manufacturers website you WILL be bumped to the next level immediately. This will result in a loss of points from the intermediate class. If you are talented enough to get a sponsor deal from a car manufacturer you need to be in expert. We strongly suggest to the manufacturers that they wait until the season is over to sign these racers.

Hmmm, rules seem pretty clear to me. If I would have spent the hundreds of dollars to attend and raced in the intermediate class I wouldn't be pleased, wonder if the fuel limits are open to interpretation also

I'm not attacking you, I just think that if there are rules in place they should be followed.

I say if you pick up a sponsor you go up a class. Unless you like to sand bag like it seems most are doing in the intermediate class.

It seems rc pro is going down the same road as ROAR make rules as you go racing.
