Does the eligible car list of types of 356 make any sense?

I remember the list to be based on the models/years entered. Are you talking about displacement, 1100, 1500 and 1300 for the 356?

Ha OK, now I see your point, apologies for the misunderstanding. The website mentions 1100 in '51,'52 and '53; 1500 in '53, 1300 in '56 and 1500 Speedster in '56. The Porsche only list is rather long, with more than 60 different models. Do you think they missed something?

Not an easy task imo, had a look to the '58 ťdition, wiki source. The RSK Spyder is entered with a 1600 and the RSK with a 1500, finishing 4th and 5th. A 356 is listed in 1961 with a 1600 but its a 356 B Abarth GTL. Looking at the displacement of some Panhard engines, may be this source is not accurate enough…

The 1600ís they list are 4 cams most of which now race with two litre engines
The Speedster and Coupe we raced at LMC had 1600 cc engines.
Most of 356ís in 60ís endurance have 1600 cc engines
I wanted to enter my T 6 that we occasionally race in Pre 63 but donít think itís possible
We may have a car for Mr Bell to drive along with his mate but letís see if they accept entry
Itís nearly impossible to fill entry form without having problems with payment mechanism
Thought they would have sorted it at 6 grand a car!

As to the eligible car list I think a mistake is almost impossible. Those people are serious and experimented and there's more than a tight connection between ACO and PA. Now there's a list a there are lists.
Given the success, the 6 grand could be 8 or 10 it wouldn't change many things…

How/Who decides what's eligible and whats not when none of the FiA Homologation papers existed until 1960? . . .the first 356 on the database is No21, 1960, a 356B @ 1600 (cc) GS ?

How many different Pre A and A's did they make ? ( waits for JR to point me toward a book )

Surely that would constitute a BTCC style ballast penalty ?
