spoiler must be attaxhed to the actual body. (No chassis mounted

or "buggy/truggy" type wing mounts).

3. Tires must

fit under the car's body from overhead view. Adding "fender flairs"

on the body to increase tire coverage is not allowed. No "foam"

tires permitted.

4. Fuel Capacity: All cars can have 1 fuel tnak with a maximum capacity of

150cc.

5. Diffs: Cars must be equiped with standard gear diffs only. No "TCD"

type diffs are permitted.

6. Clutch: No "adjustable" or "slider" type clutches allowed. Only 2, 3, or 4

shoe buggy based systems are allowed.

7: Engine: Cars can use any of the engines from the "Approved" list. All spec

Its excellent that the “GT Spec Class” rules being utilized for the “Byron’s Fuels” event at “Leisure Hours”are solid.

We should all 100% understand & respect tham.

It’s going to be a great summer!

Decided to pull this to the top. Should be an exciting weekend! With the track being closed for Fathers Day this Sunday, a good alternative is the TEAMNITRO club track in Portage IN- http://www.teamnitrorcracing.com This club is also hosting the 3rd leg of the MWS, July 10,11.
The race day this weekend is SATURDAY! Hope to see some LH guys there.

Seeing as my usual pitman can't make this race, 10 min quals would bring back nightmares. The last time I ran 10 minute quals with a volunteer pitman he started squeezing the fuel bottle before he even picked up the car. My car "cried" fuel for half a lap after that stop.
Either way I'll be there for some fun. Sounds like a lot of people are planning on making the trip....a lot of fast guys too.
