ETPC - Turbo Protection Diesel Engines

Dear All,

Following turbocharger failures, the ETPC has reviewed the safety rules for using turbochargers in Tractorpulling.

This new set of rules is set up in cooperation with turbo specialists and drivers out of all divisions in Pulling.

Please implement these new rules as soon as you can for the 2015 season.

Please try and get this implemented before 1st May 2015, however if it is all not possible then the minimum is that the cross with the stud in the exhaust pipe is built in before 1st May 2015. (MANDATORY).

The complete set of new rules must be implemented before June 1st. (MANDATORY).

Before the first Eurocup all Pro Stock and other involved teams are invited to discuss the new rules during an on-site ETPC-meeting, before the pull starts on Saturday morning in Brande.

Translation by drawings will follow in a few days.

Please note the new set of rules for turbochargers used on engines burning alcohol and other fuels are coming later this week.

On behalf of the ETPC T&S board,
With kind regards,
Peter de Wit.
