VALCOURT FUEL TESTING

VALCOURT FUEL TESTING

Postby Flatout » January 29th, 2016, 3:58 pm

The fuel testing procedures will be the same as last year. We will be taking samples of your fuel on Thursday and Friday. These samples will be tested for compliance and kept as sealed samples throughout the weekend. All pro Champ and Pro F500 entrants must have a fuel sample that passes tech taken prior to racing any class. Random sampling as well as post final samples will be taken and compared to the Friday samples. This year if the fuel does not match the Friday sample or if it fails any of the field tests as laid out in the ISR rule book it will result in immediate disqualification. Please read the section of the rule book pertaining to fuel testing. For you that do not have the rule book here is the section pertaining to fuel testing:

FUEL REGULATIONS
NOTICE: It is advisable for all competitors
to have their fuel tested at the event, before
competing.
1. A contestant appealing a fuel
disqualification must bear the expense of
the fuel analysis and handling.
The CPT will require all appeal procedures as outlined in the ISR rule book to be followed plus a
non refundable deposit to cover analysis and handling of fuel sample within 30 minutes of the infraction.

2. Allowed gasoline and lubricants:
a. Only a commercially available pump
gasoline that complies with these rules
is allowed. (The term “pump gasoline”
includes fuels dispensed from service
station pumps and racing fuels that are
commercially available in fuel cans and
drums.) The gasoline may be mixed
with petroleum, vegetable, or synthetic
based lubricants. The use of oils, fuels
(including gasohol), and additives that
provide power-boosting characteristics
are strictly forbidden.
b. Only motor fuel compounded of
standard pump gasoline and an
acceptable lubricant are allowed.
Additives that produce power in excess
of that produced by standard pump
gasoline and petroleum base oil shall
not be permitted. The list of
unacceptable additives includes, but is
not limited to, alcohol, nitrates, and
other oxygen bearing compounds.
c. No competitor or driver’s pit personnel
shall possess power boosting additives
or agents upon the race premises of the
sanctioned event. Violations of this rule
shall subject the violator to severe
disciplinary procedure.
d. Aerosol cans of ether are allowed at
sanctioned races for starting purposes.
No driver will be allowed to carry such
cans on their person or their
snowmobiles during the race.
e. Driver statements as to their fuel
components will be binding and may be
verified by various fuel tests. Drivers
must allow officials to test their fuel at
anytime.
f. In Stock Drag Racing and all Youth
Racing classes, commercially available
gasoline that is reformulated with up to
10% ethanol is allowed.

To all:
It is not as easy as it seems, and until you have been there, appreciate the guys who do it. What happens in tech, takes on a whole new life on the internet. The racers are professional, and the tech guys are professional, sometimes what really goes on behind the scenes is not what the Monday "quarterbacks" think it is.
Carry on Howard. All the best!
