Our autocrosses are designed to be friendly competition, not an all-out assault. Competitors should be sportsmanlike in self-classing. While it is possible to prepare a car to the limits of these rules that will soundly trounce more casually prepared cars that is non-sportsmanlike behavior and those competitors who insist on stretching the spirit to win will be asked to reevaluate their self-classing. Likewise, competitors who have modified their cars extensively but without regard to autocross competitiveness, should not be surprised to be bumped into a class with faster cars.
