ANY DRIVER IN AN ACCIDENT SUFFICIENT TO CAUSE DAMAGE WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM ANY FUTURE EVENT. HE MAY APPEAL HIS EXCLUSION AFTER ONE YEARS TIME FROM THE DATE OF THE INCIDENT. ANY DRIVER DETERMINED TO BE AT FAULT WILL BE REPORTED TO THE VMC INFRACTION LIST.
CAR INSPECTION AND COMPLIANCE: Event entrants will be notified with their event acceptance materials if their car will undergo a close scrutinizing of their vehicle. The areas inspected will include but are not limited to the mechanical systems of the car (engine displacement, correct internal and external components), brake system components, suspension and mounting points, shock type, wheel diameter and width, tire size and type including tread pattern, body modifications and configuration. Cars found to have issues in any of these areas are subject to exclusion from the event. A copy of the inspection form can be found at www.hmsausa.com
RACE PREP SHOPS: If your car is prepared by a shop or professional, be sure they have a copy of these rules. It is important that they understand what YOU want. If you want an oversize engine or modern bits that improve the car beyond the rules, they have the ability to do that. YOU are the one that faces disqualification and we believe they would not, knowingly, put you in that situation.
READ THE RULES. PREPARE YOUR CAR ACCORDINGLY AND ENJOY THE SPIRIT OF THE EVENTS. It makes for better racing!
SUPPLEMENTAL REGULATIONS: It may be necessary for HMSA to issue supplemental regulations for specific events. These supplemental regulations will be distributed to all participants prior to the specific for the corresponding event.
CHEATING: Our rules are simple. They are not exact in many areas as “the spirit of sportsmanship” is the primary focus. The "Statement of Purpose" will take precedence in any rule dispute. If an entrant is found to have contravened the spirit of the rules he will risk disqualification from any further involvement with HMSA. In other words, cheating is not something that will be taken lightly. READ THE RULES.
If you have any questions or suggestions on any of the preceding please call (818) 249-3515 or e-mail the HMSA office at email@example.com.
