Topic: Numbers Format
First off- I did read the rules and I know it clearly states:
"3.J.3 Car Numbers. Numbers must be shown on both sides, and also the hood or roof.
Car numbers must be at least 12 inches tall and clearly readable. Numbers must be
white on black background or vice versa–if you choose another format, you’re just
increasing your chances of failing tech. Cars that show up with incorrect, improperly
formatted, or otherwise hard-to-read numbers will fail tech instantly."
I know it says "must" be white on black background or vice versa" but I have seen that not all Lemons cars that are out there racing are actually following this rule.
Our planned color scheme is two complimentary colors (dark purple & bright yellow) that would make the numbers extremely easy to see if painted with those colors. I have been in charge of RallyCross timing and scoring for the past many many years, so I know the importance of easy to read car numbers (IE: NOT blue painters tape on a blue car). I feel like putting our numbers in a black or white box will really mess with the Mojo-Jo-Jo of our paint design- so is there a way I could get pre-approval or a general consensus if what our numbers look like is ok?
