If your car doesn't have a "Log Book" yet you need to get things going in that direction quickly. All cars must be fully inspected for total compliance with Rally of America rules BEFORE it can appear at any race. You need to contact Rally of America to find an approved scrutineer/inspector in your area. A good scrutineer will go over every sqare inch of the car. Safety will be the name of the game. He will be looking for a road worthy car that complies 100% with the rules. He will focus primarily on safety related issues including cage design, materials, and fabrication, seats and their installation, proper harnesses and installation, fire protection, fuel storage protection, tow hooks and all required safety equipment including but not limited to a proper first aid kit, spill kit, emergency triangles, etc. Waivers are rarely if ever granted. A waiver is usually only given for a non-safety related item and a compliance date will be entered in the log book. Personal safety equipment, race suit, helmet, Han's devise, etc. will be inspected at the rally for up to date certifications along with required proof of auto insurance etc. So make sure your policy meets their minimum coverge requirements before the rally. Don't leave any of the items in the rules un-met and get the race organizers list of entry requirements well before the race otherwise you may make a long trip for nothing.

The rally america rules are available on their web site. Read them beginning to end. By reading the rules you'll determine yourself what class you will be in.
