The Idea- The Fighting Torque event is aimed at "Special" Standard of Modified road going cars. Fighting Torque is only open to road legal, taxed, tested and insured road vehicles. The fitment and use of aids to performance relating to speed or braking that would not be considered sensible for use on the public highway are not allowed. These include the fitment of Nitrous Oxide equipment,, Parachutes, After Market Launch Control ( that produces loud detonations)Jet Engines. Note the use of the word fitment as opposed to non usage or switch off. The organisers will adopt a "common sense" approach to any anomolies. However it must be understand that their decision will be final. Some cars on application or on the organisers insistance may be accepted into an Open Class.
