2008 Ramer Race Promotions
To better serve our sport,
its competitors and fans, we have created four sets of building rules (Old Iron,
Fair Class, 1980 & Newer, and Mini Van). All rules have been written and will be
enforced with safety as the number one priority. These rules will be used for
different types of vehicles at different shows. The different vehicle classes
are as follows:
Fair Class: Any year car, but no Imperials,
Imperial framed cars or Hearses.
Trucks & Suburban type vehicles: ½ and ¾ ton
allowed. NO 4x4!!
Compact Car: 104” wheel base or less, 4 cylinders,
and front wheel drive.
1980’s & Newer Full Size Car: Must be of a metric
Old Iron: Any year car.
Compact Mini Vans: No mid-size or full size
vehicles allowed (4x4 allowed but must remove front or rear drive shaft)
Not all classes will run at
all events so be sure to check the schedule for the event(s) you are entering.
All rules will be strictly enforced, so please call with any questions. When
calling, please be prepared to offer what class, type, and make of vehicle you
are preparing to build so we can better answer your questions. We want you to
have a fun and safe time at all RRP events and we look forward to creating a new
history for the sport of demolition derby in 2008 and beyond.
