In the event a fellow racer wishes to contest someone's turbocharger, a $750 contesting fee will be required from the contesting party. If this inspection leads to an illegal turbocharger for that class, the racer in question will be removed and the $750 will be returned to the contesting party and the racer at fault will be disqualified from the event. In the event that turbocharger in question is deemed legal, that $750 will be awarded to the racer in question and he will be allowed to return to racing.
Turbocharger size will be verified by one or both of the following methods: (1) By measuring the housing bore at the leading edge of the impeller wheel. The maximum diameter of the housing bore at the leading edge of the impeller wheel may not exceed 2mm more than the maximum allowable turbocharger size permitted in this class. (2) By measuring the impeller inducer wheel where the leading edge of the inducer wheel meets the housing. The wheel/blade contour from the inducer to the exducer must be continuous without steps.
