Due to almost universal acceptance of the Hawk Retro motor (with barely more than 5% using any other motor at the recent R4/9), the closeness of racing recently seen in events utilizing IRRA® rules, the negative perceptions many have of rebuildable motors, and to eliminate any potential and/or future conflicts of interest, the IRRA® BoD has voted to simplify the Approved Motor List as follows:
Effective 4/1/16, at all IRRA® Premier races the only motors permitted in the Can-Am, GTC, Stock Car, Retro Anglewinder, and F1 classes will be: Hawk Retro, F7, and TSR.
Effective 4/1/16, at all IRRA® Premier races the only motor permitted in the Can-Am Plus class will be: Hawk Retro.
Effective 1/1/17, Hawk Retro, F7, and TSR will be the only motors permitted in the IRRA® rules for all classes, except in the Can-Am Plus class, which will be: Hawk Retro only.
