• Entrants wishing to wear racing clothes, fireproof overalls, helmets, etc., do so at their own risk of being laughed at.
• Downforce wings, spoilers, air dams, etc. are all permitted. They probably won’t do any good, but we will all get a good chuckle out of them.
• Sponsorship logos, racing stickers and car names are all encouraged.
