Re: Manufacturer's Cup
I may be wrong about needing the lanyard kill requirement. Went to ManCup site and checked the rules again and don't see mention of it there or in the general rules section. To be sure, call Jay at MRE or Dave at Schnitz and confirm. MPS makes them if you end up needing one.
Here's the rules for street ET copied from the site. Good luck, Have fun !
CLASS DESCRIPTION: Street E.T. is open to street legal bikes only. The class is run in an E.T. bracket racing format and is a great class for the novice racer to gain valuable racing experience. Double entering a class will no longer be allowed in any class. A rider can not ride the same, nor a different, bike in one class. Nominal increases to both the entry fees and the purses will be implemented. Specific details of such will be announced upon finalization.
DESIGNATION: The class designation is S/ET. All entrants must display this designation on both sides of their motorcycle by their bike number.
FORMAT: This is a 1/4 mile E.T. bracket class run on a .500 full tree. This is an all run field. All bikes must be 18.99 & quicker.
Maximum dial-in permitted 18.99.

This class will be a points class at all MANUFACTURERS CUP events.
It will be the riders responsibility to monitor his or hers points earnings after every event. All requests for points adjustments must be made in writing within thirty days of the points posting for the event in question on all events EXCEPT the Finals. For the Finals ONLY, all requests for points adjustments, again, must be made in writing and within TEN days of the points being posted. Please understand the Man Cup will strive to keep the points tabulations for all classes accurately and correctly and we do hope by you monitoring your own points earnings that any errors or miscalculations can be corrected in a timely fashion.
The buyback process will be replaced. A more simple and straightforward approach will replace it. ALL first round losers will automatically advance back into the second round. With the completion of the second, and all subsequent elimination rounds thereafter, upon losing, every rider will be out of competition.
The points earnings will change to reflect the updates made to the buyback process. All riders will now earn 21 points for entry, tech, first and second round of elimination rounds regardless of performance. This is up from 11 points awarded for entry and a minimum of 0, with a maximum of 20 additional round points through round two, contingent if a rider bought back or not. Rounds won points will remain unchanged at 10 per round but will begin accrual in the 3rd round and beyond. Winner and runner-up bonus points are also unchanged.
GENERAL: A rider may only run one bike in this class, and that bike may only be entered one time in this class.
