Classes

The way a Tuesday night runs is broken into two parts. In the first round we run one of the published classes – the rota is in the calendar.

In the second half we run Blue Lane Rules, which simply means, when your name is called to run on the blue lane, you get to dictate what type of cars hit the grid for that one race. Your race. It doesn’t have to be one of the published classes. Just as long as everyone else in the heat has one of the type you call or can borrow one.

Regarding these rules, if in doubt, if this page does not mention it, consider it illegal.
