I don't see why you can't enter it, Brian Collins' old TT was a 3 seater as well so I. Would think it would be ok. Maybe call SCORE and ask to make sure but I'm sure you'll be ok.

Thanks,
Mike

Pistolas truck is also a 3 seater. They are legal depending on the class and OK from Bill.

Call Bill Savage. I believe you have to have written permission by Score Tech, before you can race with 3 seats. My guess is they will want to tech the truck to make sure the roll cage is built to protect the 3rd occupant in the back. Also if the truck has not been Score tagged by Savage that will need to be done before it can race Score too.That would be the time to have it inspected for a 3rd seat. I'm sure Savage will want a few more tubes or gussets in specific places.

Re: are 3 SIT CARS ALLOWED in SCORE?

The short answer is yes,with that said Savage does have some extra requirements !!!! BTW just because a car has 3 seats doesn't mean its legal !!!! For instance when we raced our 7 open truck we had a third seat that we used when we were prerunning. Savage told us we had to make a bunch of cage work to be able to race with 3 people,it became a place to put crap during race's. I know that some guys have 3 seaters that didn't pass Tech for 3 seats so at the first pit the third guy would jump in. If your going to race a mini according to savage its real hard to make them fit and still pass tech......

Our Tundra is a 3 seater. We raced in the stock full class and had 3 people in the truck. Just talk to Savage and let him look at your cage design.

When we built the collins 3 seater score was not the problem it was casey folks that was TOTALLY AGAINST the truck it took some real talking to get him convinced that we were not getting an unfair advantage over the compititon AKA tire,trans,gearset changes in the middle of knowhere with the extra set of hands riding in the truck he hates people that think out of the box. whats the diffrence between this truck and entering a prerunner full of parts to follow the race truck with a total of 4 guys ready to fix the problem? he diden't think ANYONE would EVER think of that or afford to enter 2 TRUCKS yea right.

Get it in writing! Keep the letter handy when you go through tech. We had verbal approval for something many years ago but Bill had 'forgotten' when we were in post race tech and he said we were illegal. He asked if we got it in writing? 'nope' just talked to you on the phone. It took a lot of talking before he recalled the conversation but he admonished us to always get it in writing in the future.

Good luck!

I agree 100%

Our invoice shows the truck was tech'd as a 3 seat vehicle.
