2009 Stewards Proposal #23: Primer paint


Well-known member
This rule removes the requirement that cars not be painted in "primer". Matte and satin colors, as well as true primer paint, are variously popular. We belive that the intention of the rule is that unfinished cars are not acceptable aesthetically, and the suggested changed wording specifies cars that are showing unfinished fiberglass patch and/or body filler are not allowed. While such repairs might be necessary track-side, the rule allows that, and specifies they must be fixed before the next race.
