DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 10, 2002) -- The Grand American Road Racing Association released the final edition of the rules for the Daytona Prototypes, the premier class in the Rolex Sports Car Series in 2003. The final modifications and additions came following the Daytona Prototypes Summit Meeting held in Indianapolis last week.

"We had a very successful meeting with manufacturers and builders last week that allowed us to address the remaining open issues. We were able to solidify the difference between theoretical and practical," Daytona Prototypes Project Manager Mark Raffauf said. "We have now fine tuned the rules to make it easier to design and build car."

The updated rules now incorporate several appendices for listing approved equipment. Appendix A is the Engine Eligibility and Approval List. Appendix B is the Approved Component List, which lists authorized suppliers for transaxles/gearboxes and for side pod structures. Appendix C is the Approved Chassis and Bodywork Constructors. These lists will be updated as new equipment/suppliers/constructors get approved. When the rulebook takes its final printed form at the beginning of the year, the Appendices will be printed separately from the main rule book.
