The protested component may be sent to an independent tester at the protester’s expense for review.

It is the driver’s duty to prove his legality, not the tech officials duty to prove the violation. Only the protested component may result in a disqualification during the protest process – no other components will be considered regardless of their legality.

If the component in question on the protester’s car is found to be illegal the car being protested
