As in past Great Races, the rules provide that we will allow our sponsors to have their logo stickers displayed on both sides of each competing vehicle and support vehicle. We are doing our best to steer them to vendors who provide adhesive stickers that are easily removed without harming your paint job.
Which brings me to the reason for this post. Attached is an “Owner’s Release” that says, you will not hold us responsible for any stickers that are not easily removed. To compete, we will need a signed release from the owner, of each entering vehicle.
If you have a concern that a sticker may harm the finish on your ride, we strongly suggest that you come equipped with magnetic sheet material so the sticker can be placed on a sheet and cut to the outline, before being magnetically applied to the body of the car. Most hobby stores have rolls available for purchase.
If you are the vehicle owner, you can bring this signed form with you to registration. If you are the Driver or Navigator but you are not the vehicle owner, then you need to get the owner to sign this form and bring it with you, or come with authority to sign for the owner.
As in past years, we will be asking you to remove the stickers of those companies that are not current sponsors of this year’s Great Race. The prize money you are vying for is based on their generous contributions.
I can’t tell you how excited we and our sponsors are that you are participating in the Hemmings Motor News 2011 Great Race. Only 39 more days until the Green Flag drops here in Chattanooga.
