The rule change process continues to move forward for the 2008 update. Racers input were accepted from 1 June until 1 July. The rules committee has spent many hours as have the Racers Advisor Committee carefully considering the 76 unique change requests submitted by 91 separate individuals.
The changes submitted ranged from simple enhancements to wording to new classification proposals. While all were considered, not all were recommended for adoption by the RAC or the rules committee.
The proposed 2008 rules are now available for comment until 1 September. The items highlighted in green are clarifications that have been issued while those in yellow are new.(http://www.bmwccaclubracing.com/Information/ForTheRacer.aspx)
There were some significant items associated with the SpecE36 class that were suggested. The rules committee has recommended some of the items and has formed a team to further examine changes to the specification. These changes may be introduced at a later date using the mid-year rules change process.
