The following rules have been approved by the Rocky Mountain Division Board for the 2005 season.
The rules and regulations for the Spec Miata class shall be as defined by the 2005 GCR. To supplement those rules, on a Rocky Mountain Division Basis only, the following shall apply: 1.0 Any and all issues requiring a unilateral decision amongst the Spec Miata drivers shall be put to vote. The issue shall be managed by the Driverís Advisory Board. 1.1 All votes shall be decided based on a ďSimple Majority VoteĒ of the received votes. The Driverís Advisory Board will assure every reasonable effort is made to provide drivers with notification of each issue via the message board, email, mail, or in person at the track. They will also be responsible for assembling the results and announcing the decision. 2.0 Tire brands and models, allowed to be used in any Rocky Mountain Division sanctioned event, must be chosen from the following list (sizes to remain as defined by the GCR): a. Toyo RA1 b. Hankook Ventus (excludes new Pro Series Version) c. Falken Azenis 3.0 When running independently of all other classes (separate run group), the Spec Miata's will run two qualifying sessions in lieu of a practice session and a qualifying sessions. Starting positions for the first qualifying session will be designated by lottery performed prior to that session (conducted by the members of the Driverís Advisory Board). Positions for the second qualifying session will be based on the results of first qualifying session with fastest time starting first, second fastest second, and subsequent positions in descending order for the remainder of the field. Participating in one or both sessions is optional to the driver's although starting positions for the second session, for drivers not participating in the first session, will be on a first come first serve basis starting behind the first session qualifiers. The fastest times from both sessions combined will dictate starting positions for the race. Note, drivers are strongly encouraged to have back-up timing alternatives, in the form of in-car lap timers or manual timers in the timing shack, for first run qualifying sessions. This can serve as a back-up should timing and scoring not collect times for one or more cars during that session. Driverís also must take the initiative to confirm transponders are on and working for early qualifying runs. 3.1 When accompanied by another class, the format will revert back to practice and qualifying as done in the past. Should the partnering class wish to run under the double qualifying rules of the Spec Miata, then approval must be granted by the Operating Steward for that particular race day. In such case, a track side lottery will be held for 1st session starting qualifying positions. 4.0 Championship, Novice, and Rookie Points Series shall be as defined in the Rocky Mountain Division Supplement 2 as derived and delivered by the 2005 Spec Miata Driverís Advisory Board. 5.0 The Spec Miata group will not participate in any type of motor claim rule for the 2005 season.
