Rotax claiming is coming folks. ECKC (Canada) just announced a claiming rule for Rotax motors effective this season. I would expect the US to follow suit; Canada is typically used as a trial balloon for Rotax rule changes, and the US usually follows the following year. I believe Canada briefly had a claiming rule at one point back when Lance Stroll’s dad was going bananas on his motor program. It will be interesting to watch. I would expect every single PSL motor built by Dan Lambert to get claimed after the first round of ECKC.

Claiming rules aren’t designed to prevent cheating; that’s what tech is for. They are designed to discourage guys from part matching 20 motors to pick up .2 of a hp.
