The snack shack will be operational during the race.  There may be other on-site food options – details TBD.

SFRC will provide a MIG welder, air compressor, and other specialty tools for general use.  Don’t assume we’ll have what you need, though!  Please bring your own tools and spares.

Crashed machines must undergo a technical inspection before reentering the race.

Additional rule details will be forwarded to participating teams.
