Now I understand. By the way the Alfa Sud ran a "boxer" engine as standard, hence my confusion.


As to tuning in the "Historic Spirit", you really will have a massive spread of variants. You could have Capri's running triple carbs or fuel injection because they did that in the 70's (Group 2), or Escorts with BDA engines. It really does seem that you will have many arguments over what is and what is not period tuning.

However there were some awesome seventies Super Saloons and I think this is what you are aiming at so hopefully some of the posters here will get to see your thread.

I am with Peter on this I think the whole thread has been pretty vague and no disrespect calex but I would be surprised if this series is still going in a year. Basically anything goes especially if it is a hot rod, with little supervisioon its likely that driving standards will match preperation!

Sorry to be blunt but it will have limited appeal on this forum I would imagine!!

Hmm,

I think there might be mileage in a series with a structured set of regs even if they are hot rods but you couldn't call it historic racing. The Super Saloons example is where I'm coming from. Standard silhouette but bigger/seriously modified engines. It could work.

It isn't a problem for us.
We make categories by power.
An Escort with 150hp run with other cars of 150hp
An Escort of more 200hp run with other cars of more 200hp.

3 points are important for us :
- security (for everybody)
- historic spirit (car specs)
- power (to dispatch the car).

With two people in the car and no rollcages I think you are talking about track days, not historic racing, Alex.

Yes, but we weren't sure if you were talking about racing or just a track experience. As I understand it from the posts its a track experience (not racing) with cars grouped into power ranges. Therefore not historic racing.

Thanks, this might actually be better in the Classic Cars forum as it isn't racing.

Good luck with your project Alex.
