I’m sorry some people have taken our stance as some kind of sinister plot against Rotax. It is not.

As I’ve stated before. We are not the only series in the country that doesn’t recognize the seal. The only one is RMC.

TAG USA also does NOT require the seal. AS with WKA.

In a time when cost is a major concern paying to seal a motor to prove it’s legality seems unneccesary. We verify it’s legality after the race at no charge. Maintaining your own engine with out sealing could represent a large savings. If you prefer the work done by others your not limited. I’m sure just freshening an engine at a dealer still costs less than sealing one.

Having said all that. Like I posted before, I generally recognize the seal. But, we still have the right to cut it. The rules are well known before hand.
