As posted in the Nationals Guidelines regarding fuel classes ladder main system, ROAR has adopted the IFMAR style of ladder mains for the respective fuel on-road and fuel off-road classes. The qualifying procedures and seeding for the finals will follow the current IFMAR formats for each class.
The Final for the fuel off-road classes will not have ‘sit outs,’ e.g. no drivers qualify directly into the Final. The fastest drivers at the conclusion of qualifying will be seeded into the “A” and “B” semifinals based on their qualifying position, and the finishing order of the semi-finals will determine the driver’s starting position in the Final. The number of drivers in the final will vary according to ROAR’s National Guidelines, and decisions regarding all aspects of the event will be at the discretion of the Race Director.
The Final for fuel on-road events will seed the four fastest drivers, at the conclusion of qualifying, directly into the Final. The remaining positions in the final will be filled based on the results of the “A” and “B” semi-finals, and the finishing order in the semi-finals will determine the remaining drivers and their starting positions in the final
Unlike IFMAR, the number of competitors in a given final may vary depending on various criteria, so the number seeded directly into a fuel on-road main, and the remaining positions to be filled, will vary depending on the total number of entries permitted in the Final.
All aspects of any fuel on-road or off-road event may be changed at the discretion of the ROAR Race Director.
