The over-arching concept is that ISF does not insist everyone as identical cars run to identical races to seek a champion driver. It is not our way. We are design competitions in a fast moving technological space, the regulations of each event set out to describe what needs to be achieved in an environment designed to encourage innovation and lateral thinking.
So each event is slightly different. It is not a ‘one size fits all’ regulatory control structure. ISF encourages adoption, adaptation and improvement of processes and procedures that have been shown to work well, and ISF event organisers pledge themselves to share these ideals.ph here.
