I've competed in several Italian championship rounds but not seriously. The rules are strict and complicated but basically your car is scrutineered, then an official motor is randomly taken out of a tray and your motor is exchanged for this in front of you. Then a pair of tyres is taken out of a bag and exchanged for yours. The car then goes into parc ferme, never to be touched by you until the end of the racing. You're not even allowed to touch the car if it de-slots in front of you. The motor remains the property of the club but the tyres are yours to keep. The motors are calibrated beforehand and the slowest and fastest are not put in the tray.

This is a hugely fair way of doing things, in my opinion.

I have a full set of 2011 rules, in Italian, if anyone is interested. I could translate them for you.

Maurizio has far more knowledge than me and I thank him for a clear explanation. I didn't even know there was a Northern Championship!

The Italian championships are VERY healthy and HIGHLY competitive. This is why we have such good manufacturers here and probably why, in turn, it is so healthy and competitive. One promotes the other. Virtually all racing (and rallying) is on Ninco track which also provides a level playing field.
