UPCOMING CHANGES FOR
THE 2013 INEX RULEBOOK
AT THIS TIME, THE INEX INSPECTORS & INEX
COMPETITORS WILL REMAIN USING THE 2012 INEX
THE “CHANGE OVER” DATE FOR THESE RULEBOOK UP- DATES TO GO INTO EFFECT, ALONG WITH THE 2013 INEX RULEBOOK, WILL BE POSTED ON USLEGENDCARS.COM.
All INEX Competitors:
While preparing your car to go to the races, it is important to ensure that it meets all the rules set by the current INEX rulebook. Taking the time to read through your rulebook and making sure that any changes made on your car fit within the guidelines of the rules will save you time & frustration at the track.
At the track, it is the INEX Inspectors duty to verify that your car is within the rules set by the current INEX rulebook. “Debating” if a rule is good or bad with the INEX Inspector at the track is not how the process works. The INEX inspectors are put in place at each INEX sanctioned event to enforce the rules as listed in the current INEX rulebook. If changes need to be made, INEX members may request changes in writing by submitting them to INEX before making those changes. “Approved” changes will only be allowed with a written letter of approval from INEX. Safety equipment is at the top of the list of things that INEX inspectors will check.
Make sure the safety equipment on your car and your driver safety equipment meets the rules in the current INEX rulebook. Things like properly rated helmets, fire suits, gloves, shoes, roll bar padding, safety harness, seats that are bolted in properly, a proper fitting head and neck restraint are all very important to INEX. If you come to an INEX sanctioned event with safety equipment that doesn’t meet the guidelines of the current INEX rulebook, you may not be allowed to participate
in that event.
Again, a quick read through of the current INEX rulebook will save you headaches in the future.
It is also recommended that you check your rulebook any time you make a change on your car
from factory stock, to ensure that the change is permitted by the INEX rules.
