This is a wheel-to-wheel "club racing" group. Passing is allowed anywhere and at any time except when track flags prohibit it. All starts will be rolling starts. Car-to-car contact, however, is not acceptable and will be handled using a modified "13/13 Rule". Entrants who run in this group without a transponder, will be considered "run-for-fun" entries they and will not be scored. Please be advised that we will not accept aggressive driving in our events. Any incidents which involve car-to-car contact will be dealt with harshly.
If you have not raced with AROSC-HPD in the reasonably recent past, please contact our Race Director.
