Topgear should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Historic Sports Sedans racing at Mallala Easter Historic meeting

Ive been going to the SA Historic Racing general meetings and they are excited to run a category for Historic Sports Sedans at the Mallala Historic meeting at the end of March!
We had very productive meetings and even surprised myself at the level of interest.
Ive had two people at the meeting ask me to find them cars for the event!

These are a few points that we discussed and came up with,

- It is limited to 24cars

- Historic log books are not required, infact no log books are required at this stage (will explain later)
(to try and promote the category were not pushing for log booked vehicles, we have a preference for vehicles up to 1986 to keep within the guidelines of the GroupU rules)

- The events will be run as "spirited demonstrations" and will only require a 2LS license.
(If it was run as a "race" we can only except log booked vehicles. As it is a historic event and correct log booked vehicles will be hard to find, we can accept many more vehicles as a "spirited demonstration" and basically compete in a similar fashion. Cars will be sent out of pit lane from fastest to slowest, form up on the out lap behind the pace car "hopefully Clem Smiths Charger Sports Sedan". The pace car will pull off coming onto the front straight, then we are released to circulate!)

Obviously in years to come we would like to make it for log booked GroupU cars, but lets get some cars on the track and get the interest going.
