The rule book has the Subaru WRX STI (04-17) classified under BS. Sooooo... Im just gonna assume that my 2018 WRX STI is in the same class?

Makes complete sense to me


Yep, you should be fine in BS so long as you haven't made any modifications outside of the street class rules.

Re: Long Beach Grand Prix

See what I mean? 155 viewed and, 1 bothered to say "who cares?". And a number of those viewers are likely board members like me, so it's covered. That being said, we are at the mercy of the lots we rent and don't always have as many choices as we would like. Yep, Rick is correct, we are a...

Re: 5 minutes between runs

I think it boils down to driver and grid person responsibility. Without looking it up, I assume the 5 minute rule is not a required part for local events. The grid person needs to be flexible to send another car/line if necessary to keep event flow going. Drivers need to let the grid person know in...

Re: Can I run Novice? Tire suggestions

Not sure where you're located Earl but in the South Bay many of us use West End Alignment.

If you're in Orange County you could swing by FRSport as well for an alignment as a few of our regulars work there!

Re: CST Tire Treadwear Rules Change

I would second Bob's request to update the tire rating to 100. In my case Toyo RA1's. Being able to run the tires that I will be using on my refreshed NASA spec BMW lets me have seat time at an autocross on the combination that I will be driving on the track. This combination will not be as fast as...

Re: CST Tire Treadwear Rules Change

I see no reason to not allow this, it's a run what you brung class. If they can drive the car "legally" on the streets then why restrict them to a specific treadware. Like Jon mentioned, the current crop of "street legal slicks" don't work nearly as well at autox temperatures as ...

Hi Randy, Just registered for the May 5 practice as I am unsure if I can make Sunday. Registration didn’t ask for the car classification, is it because it’s just practice ? Thanks. Yes, on a practice day we don't keep track of what you are driving. No need to worry about numbers or class lettering....
