WHAT DO YOU THINK?
The BoD did not approve a re-write of the rules for the regional F600 class. The new rule set would have changed the class from
its original structure, which was seen as an alternative power train for the F500 class. The BoD feels that there is not enough
differentiation between existing classes and the proposed new class.
The BoD did recognize that the F600 power train may be a viable alternative for F500 sometime in the future. If F600s are built
and raced in sufficient numbers, with F500 style chassis only modified with a longer wheelbase to accept the F600 drive train,
and it is demonstrated that their performance can be adjusted on a par with the F500 cars, a future merger of the classes may be
possible. The CRB plans to submit to a rule set to the BoD for an F600 regional class that is close to the existing F500 rule set.

To help simplify the homologation process for competitors, encourage participation, and be consistent with the system
implemented for CSR and DSR homologations, effective 1/1/12 the following procedures will be added:
•;Any approved Formula Continental homologation will automatically receive a Formula Ford homologation, and vice
•;Any approved Formula Vee homologation will automatically receive a Formula First homologation, and vice versa.
Existing homologation certificates may be updated with the additional class for a $25 processing and shipping fee. Contact

1. #6370 (CRB) Allow alternative/open clutch for Fit engine
At this time, the reported number of failures is minimal and does not indicate a need for an alternate clutch. We will
reconsider this proposal in the future if the reported failure rate increases. Thank you for your input and please help keep
us informed of the known failures.
1. #6349 (Michael Cyphert) Make alt. spec. for Nissan 2. 4 3-valve engine permanent.
The Nissan KA24 3V competitors have had adequate time to convert to an SIR. The SIR will be required as of 1/1/2013.
2. #6385 (Bob Coffin) Reduce Corvair weight to correct 2225 lbs
The engine displacement of this car is among the largest in class. In the GT3 restructuring, this classification was given a
choke restriction rather than SIR because of manifold difficulties. The weight differential compared to cars using SIRs is
