Time to start a new race group, enough members have GT cars, fast but not fast to compete in sports and not eligable for saloon.
As Stated last night, Moe did not offer any objection to a new class.

Lets start a new group and set the eligable car criteria, we can run it as the evenings first race at 7.30 for those that wish to enter and then fully introduce as the class grows....could open it to Ford GT40

Start at the beginning of the next championship.

I sugggest cars like,
Fly Capri / sideways capri
NSR Audi R8, Porsche 911
Scaleauto Merc & Honda

Could Chris keep this list updated in Mod Mode as suggestions grow please.

we could do that, you would be able to use the avant slot lotus in a group it would be competitive in

Ok. I am going to say no as I want the track time to check the cars over before racing begins.

I can not get there any earlier and the 30-40 minutes of checking they run ok is needed before the main event starts.

I tell you what I had great fun last night running the GT40 round with Chris using several different classics it was close neck and neck FUN!

Moe even said there was classics originally on the timetable but it got stopped because someone used cars with big fat tyres,,,,,,,, if this was limited to "Standard" it could be one of our closest competitions.
