12 NATIONALS POLICIES
12.1.1 The National Championship events are the premier ROAR events. They are governed by
the rules contained in this book and by specific rules contained in the Nationals Guidelines.
12.1.2 Only National Championship events confirmed by the ROAR Executive Committee are
allowed to use the term “ROAR Nationals” in their promotional efforts. All advertising must
state “<Year> ROAR <Class> Nationals”. Sponsors or other co-hosts may be referred to
as such, but the event must be clearly billed as the “ROAR Nationals” and cannot be
referred to in conjunction with any sponsor, manufacturer, or another event.
12.1.3 The ROAR Executive Committee must approve any deviations from the National
Guidelines or ROAR Rules. The ROAR National Guidelines are available from the ROAR
Administrator or may be downloaded from the www.roarracing.com
website, and may be
used by any member track wanting to conduct races using the National’s format. National
Policies (in this rulebook) and/or the current year’s ROAR National Guidelines may
supersede other rules in this rulebook.
12.1.4 Site selection: The importance of these events makes site selection critical to their
success. The process begins with each Class Committee’s solicitation for bids. The Class
Committee(s) will select the site and Organizer and submit their recommendations to the
ROAR Executive Committee for final approval. The Organizer must be a current ROAR
club or track with experience in holding large racing events under ROAR rules.
12.1.5 The Executive Committee will meet in the early Fall to make the final site confirmations.
These will be based on the recommendations of the Class Committees.
12.1.6 To provide the widest possible exposure and opportunity to compete, the location of the
individual National events will be rotated as much as possible.
12.1.7 In selecting Nationals sites, the Class Committees must make every effort to avoid having
the same Nationals, or any other Nationals, at the same location two years in a row. ROAR
will try to avoid using the same location on a repetitive basis.
12.1.8 The ROAR Executive Committee will designate the classes and scales that will receive the
National Championship designation. IFMAR world championship classes will be the main
basis for selecting required classes. Other classes or scales may be offered in support of
the event, but will not receive National Championship designation unless pre-approved by
the ROAR Executive Committee.
12.1.9 If it appears that a National event for a specific class has become more of a regional
event, the ROAR Executive Committee may consider the elimination of National
Championship status for that class.
12.1.10 Local procedures and rules that conflict with ROAR rules are not allowed.
12.1.11 The official race results will be made equally available to all media upon request.
