The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) contends that it is illegal to convert a motor vehicle into a dedicated race vehicle if the emissions system is no longer in its original configuration.
Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act
Here’s the situation: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently considers converting a street car or motorcycle into a race vehicle a violation of the Clean Air Act, and the sale and installation of parts used to convert a vehicle are deemed illegal as well. An amendment to the Clean Air Act, in the form of the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act now pending in Congress, would reverse that EPA position and permanently eliminate any question about the legality of racing conversions.
