RULES FOR THE CHOP TOP CHALLENGE ROAD RALLY
- Your vehicle must be one that was not offered from the factory with a convertible option. The vehicle must have no top and no windshield.
- Full face helmets must be worn by all participants during the road rally. There is an exemption for cruising in whatever destination city we end up in…
- Participants must obey all driving laws (speed limits, road signs, seat belts, proper insurance & registration).
- Participants must not damage or immobilize another teams vehicle outside the limits of the points list. Good sportsmanship is expected by all chop toppers.
- With that being said…don’t expect your car to remain pristine…expect chaos, expect the unexpected, don’t take it personally…
NOT “RULES” BUT SOME FINE SUGGESTIONS:
- It is strongly recommended that you weld the doors shut and have a roll cage in the vehicle. Safety first.
- Warm clothes. The Chop Top is not fun if you are dealing with the effects of hypothermia. Like, seriously warm clothes. (The first year, I thought I was gonna lounge the whole way down in sandals and shorts with a hoodie on and I ended up wearing every piece of clothing I owned.)
- Snow tires might be a good option (March, could be 60, could be -20). Plenty of teams had to stop driving due to a crazy snow storm.
- In-helmet walkie talkies with music capabilities is a must if you want to have any fun. Like seriously essential.
