Interesting. No criteria on how classes (If any) will be selected that dont hit 4.0

Seems like a tweaked version of the old and much hated 2.5 rule? They dont actually extinguish the class but any class that doesnt go to the runoffs would seem to be dead man walking to me. So the result is the same but with kinder, gentler wording IMO.

there is no politically good answer. i guess this is as good as any.

always loved the B-Spec class idea, what wonderful timing when it was introduced.

I just wonder what new "spec" class they come up with, and magically doesn't get applied to the min 4.0 participation rule.

Its a good way to kill more participation if that is your goal..:) Since you own a GT3 car again I know you feel the pain..

i dont actually own the gt3 car but i do love the class and hate to see to fall victim to the ebb and flow. GTL and GT3, even GT1 cycle up and down it seems and right now GT3 is in a down cycle. GTL is barely afloat and GT1 doesnt have a lot of slack either..

wait a sec before you say gtl is barely afloat....the numbers don't reflect well yet..seattle and Portland will change that as will the NE..but I get what you are saying..

sad part is the cars are out there and sitting. just like gtl somebody needs to organize getting them out and running. I had planned on both this year but the entry fees don't make sense..

" Given the CRB's initiative to add new SCCA classes that make sense in the motorsports market"

I guess it comes down to an interpretation of what "makes sense" in the motorsports market, and which cars and classes just don't fit into the criteria anymore.
