Here is a clip out of the unapproved
rulebook that I have a draft of.
Again... this is NOT
1. Full width roll cages are recommended in all Drifting automobiles. Roll cages installed in Drifting automobiles are for driver safety and shall be contained entirely within the driver/passenger compartment. The carpet/padding may be cut around the mounting base plates.
A. The cage need not be removable. It shall be bolted and/or welded to the car.
B. It shall attach to the car in at least than six (6) points, consisting of the basic cage with six (6) points and two optional braces.
C. The forward part of the cage shall be mounted to the floor of the vehicle. In addition, if the two optional braces referred to in 18.2.1.B are utilized they shall be mounted, one on either side, from the forward section of the cage to the firewall or front fender wells (see GCR Section 18.2., Figure 1). No braces shall pass through the front firewall.
This says a 6-point is fine - while an 8-point is recommended. In the email that Mitch from SCCA sent this to me in - he said 8-point is required. So who knows at this point.
This is a snippet about the license issue... again NOT
finalized/approved by Formula D at this time:
All drivers and crewmembers, working in the pits, or other designated high-risk area, must be 18-years, or older, be a current SCCA and SCCA Pro member, and hold a current SCCA Pro Participant I.D. License. Participants 16-18 years old may be admitted upon issuance of a SCCA Pro Minor Participant I.D. License. Minor Participant I.D.â€™s must be issued from the SCCA Pro office, and will not be issued at event registration. The SCCA Pro Participant I. D. will remain the property of SCCA Pro. Privileges may be revoked at any time for non-compliance with this rule book.
There's no way they can expect your entire pit-crew to be a Pro member (if you have to participate in 3 sanctioned SCCA road races)... so there has to be a catch... or another way to get the license.
Ryan stepped to lunch... so I should know shortly what the deal is.
I will know by days end for sure.
