could i also be considered in subclass 2??  (B2 or A2)
 
based on 1595cc + says turbo but surely turbo/sc is the same lol
i wouldn't consider being extreme production car or i would have wings and down force etc  and will be on Emarked tires (so not A)
 


Possibly be considered for sub class 2, but given your power to weight outclasses every other car about 75-100bhp per tonne in that class the organisers may move you up come competition time if its deemed you have an unfair advantage - sign up and give it a go!

By the time im in the car the hp per ton will be around 350 hp per ton
Which is not a lot

To be honest chill I just set them at the standard 22/24 cold. One thing I have learnt is that cold tyres have much more grip than you think i would say 80% of full grip is avaliable - its getting your head around the car moving at higher speed that takes some adjustment. Great fun though!
