- There are a few simple rules governing drivers eligibility
in RfA which we
- outline here:
- 1) All drivers receiving money, help, scholarships, or
other assistance will
- wear a (Sponsor) RfA patch in a conspicuous place at
all times when
- competing. It will also be displayed on the race vehicles.
If there is any
- sponsor conflict, we will sit down with all parties to
try and work out a
- solution. Final decisions will rest with the Governing
Board and/or Board of Directors. We also want the drivers to display the
(Sponsor) RfA logo when not competing on clothing, hats, stickers, etc.
- 2) We ask that drivers follow the above rule until one
of the following
- conditions are reached:
- a) Drivers repay all funds received from RfA, interest
- b) Drivers retire from racing. Although we hope these
- drivers will continue wearing the logo and
- supporting the program.
- Although this sounds harsh, it really is a very fair
system. If a driver's
- career fizzles for any reason, he owes the program nothing.
- the driver succeeds in racing, the wearing of our logo
or the repayment of
- funds received, is a small price to pay. All money received
- buying out of the program will go directly back into
the driver's award
- 3) A time limit of three years per series (or a total
of six years in the
- program) has been set; drivers must then move on or get
- If a driver won a RfA scholarship for three years in
F3000, he would have to move on to F1 or IndyCars, and thereby leave the
program. A driver could do one year in Barber Saab, one year in Formula
Atlantic, two years in Formula 3, one year in Formula 3000, and one year
in Indy Lights. He would not be eligible for any more funding (the exception
being emergency funding, which can only be decided by the Board). This
saves the program from professional drivers turning RfA into a career.
- 4) All drivers and participants in RfA will be required
to submit to random drug testing. We realize this infringes on personal
freedom, however, for the sake of the program and sponsors, we must ask
all to agree to this clause. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
- 5) All drivers will be asked to make themselves accessible
to RfA and other
- Racing for programs for a set amount of time each year.
This could include Racing for programs not sponsoring that particular driver.
Drivers will be used for media events, sponsor events, advertising, public
- testing, etc. The amount of time required will be outlined
in the driver
- agreement, and signed by all parties.
- There will be a minimum amount of time expected from
the drivers. Of course, if they want to give more time; fine. The amount
of time required from drivers will be based on amount of funding received
from RfA programs.
