New Miata

Post by Lehrick Leung » Mon Dec 04, 2017 9:45 pm

Hi All.

Had my first time autocrossing this past Saturday practice. I have a 96 Miata that's completely stock except for a roll bar (X bar) and seats from an NB.
I'm looking at participating in stock novice. Would the bar and seats happen to set me out of stock class?

Thank you for asking. We appreciate people who are considerate of the rules.

Bar: no, as long as it is bolted vs welded in.
Seats, technically yes, but no one is going to care on a local level.
- if you were to one day compete at the national level, with trophy potential, it will matter.

I wouldn't worry about it until way later on. I say just focus on coming to the event and having fun! :thumbup:

Welcome to the club! Did Annant rope you into this like he did to me? I regret nothing, nothing I tell you! :lol:
