Approved and ratified by the POC Board of Directors, these GCRs are to be used by all competitors in POC Performance Driving Series (PDS), Time Trial and Racing events as a template for car preparation and modification within these rules.
Important note: The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of POC events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. These GCRs shall govern the condition of the POC events, and, by participating in these events, all participants are deemed to have complied with these GCRs. No expressed or implied warranty of safety shall result from publication of, or compliance with, these GCRs. They are solely intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport, and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to participants, spectators, or others.
