DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 17, 2002) -- Grand American Road Racing Association has posted provisional rules for the 2003 Rolex Sports Car Series on its website - www.grand-am.com. The provisional rules will become final and go to the printer within the next 60 days.

"We have been working all summer to not just update the rules with the class information, but also to make them easier to use," Director of Competition Dave Watson said. "In the past, there were rules that just kept repeating chapter after chapter. Now we have put those rules in a General Automobile Regulations section."

Rules that are universal to all cars are in the General Regulations section and teams in every class should read that section thoroughly before they study the specific rules for their class. There are also separate sections for the different types of race cars - Daytona Prototypes, SportsRacing Prototypes, GTS and GT.

"In the earlier version of the new Prototype rules we included the regulations for SRP conversions and for the SRPIIs, " Watson added. "This time around we have pulled those cars out and created a separate section. While the SRP conversions will still compete in the same class as the Daytona Prototypes, they will only be eligible for one season and we felt it was best to separate them in the rulebook."

Still to come are the General Sporting Regulations and the rules for the Grand-Am Cup Series. Those sections of the rulebook are expected to be presented on the website within the next 30 days.

"We have basically had everyone in the office get involved in this project to ensure that we are presenting these rules in an easy to read and easy to use format," Grand American President Roger Edmondson noted. "It should be a lot easier for teams and drivers to understand what is legal in a class and what is not."

Additional information about the Rolex Sports Car Series, including the provisional rules, is available online at www.grand-am.com.
