        Signing up onsite is no problem at all - tech closes at 8:30 and we try to get the first car out at 9:00. It will be really great to have you up here again - we have to know how fast we need to drive to keep all the Americans from taking our trophies at the Kumho Super Challenge

              thats what I was asking about. What do you mean by that? I've read and understand both the old CACC DSP classifcations, and the SCCA ones.

              Thanks for the clarrification on the other issues. Damn, no NTC compeition for me I guess.

                By "grandfathering", Jacques means that in order to ease the transition to SCCA car preparation rules, the CACC members voted to keep the traditional CACC SP preparation rules open as an option to competitors in addition to SCCA SP.

                In other words, when you register for an event run by a CACC club (ie. VCMC / UBCSCC / BCMA) you have the option to run under CACC SP or SCCA SP classes - they will be considered separate classes in timing and scoring. This will be in affect for 2005 and 2006.

                  excellent! So if I say I'm in CACC DSP I get to keep my fiberglass hood with getting bumped to mod then. Thats awesome, thanks for the info.

                    so I ran DSP CACC for NCT1.... and I was the only one in my class That kinda sucks, I wonder how many people will be actually competing in DSP CACC.

                    On the bright side, I was fastest in my class

                      DSP is usually pretty competitive. You don't have to worry.

                        But what about the "grandfathered" old CACC ruled DSP. Thats what I ran in, no one else did. What about you? Isn't your carbon hood the only thing putting you into street mod? Thats the only reason I'm going with the old CACC SP classes, I don't want to ditch my fiberglass hood or run in street mod.

                          you'll have more fun in a high-competition class & learn more.

                          Keep it in mind.

                          It's plenty fun to win, but not so much when you're all alone!

                            yeah I know. I'm just getting to the point where I'm starting to be a little competitve in SP though (at least at local practice events). Going into SM with this car means finishing dead last every time . Maybe I'll just pull the hood off and run SCCA DSP for any competition events.
