Hi.
You are referring to two different championships:

1 - ANSI GT championship (unlimited, sort of)
2 - ANSI GT Inline (referred to from rick1776 as North Italian GT-inline)

1 - mostly unlimited as far as tyres and 'commercial' motors are allowed with magnetism and RPM limit. This means, tyres can be glued, trued, treated. Motors can be 'open can', which means mostly Slot.it Boxer 2s, NSR Kings, and MB Gnik are used. In this case, tyres and motors are NOT handed out, they are personal property and are scrutineered as follows: tyres should still carry the brand name and not exceed 13mm width. Motors are checked for RPMs and magnetism, not to exceed a certain threshold.

2 - handed out Slot.it Flat6-R and handed out rear tyres (I don't remember the brand now, may be PRS).
The rules in the North Italian GT-inline do not group cars by brand. Basically, the first 5 teams of each race cannot reuse the same car again (it is a bit more complicated that this but this is the principle). Under these conditions, adding up the points of the best 5 teams for each race, the car which scored more points was the Slot.it's Audi (102), followed closely by Scaleauto's Radical (101) and Toyota (80), Avant's Pescarolo (59) and others.

Pictures taken from Italiaslot.


Race by race, results were as follows:


In eight races, three different brands won, with overall six different models.
15 different models in the top 5, from 7 brands.
My opinion is that there was no clear dominance of a certain car/brand - which actually made things very interesting race after race.

regards
Maurizio

Hi Graham.
True, but the numbers show some crisis in the last years. You are in Italy, know the country, we are more or less divided on anything.

Unfortunately, on the other hand, scratch building is not popular and most races tnd to end up with categories with very similar behaviour.
We will experiment this year in the Slot.it classic championship, opening it up to classic bodies on HRS2, and a special 'time compensated' ranking for heavier cars. Let's see how this works out...
