Solo Event #2, June 10th, 2017

Protest: Terrance Pearson protested that Evan Wojtanek had Pilot Sport Cup 2 Tires with a 180 treadwear rating. Evan’s Ford Focus RS was classed in the B Street Class which has a tire minimum of 200 treadwear tires.

2017 SCCA Solo Rules: Section 13.3 Street Category, Tires

“C. Other 1. Any tire which is OE on a car eligible for Street Category may be used on that car in Regional Solo® events. OE tires must meet all requirements of Section 13.3 to be eligible for National Solo® events.”

Solo Steward Ruling: Since the tires are OE, the car was classed in B Street with 180 treadwear tires as a factory option. The Ford Focus RS may run Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with 180 treadwear tires in B Street. No other 180 treadwear tires will be accepted in B Street on the Focus RS.
