Hope springs eternal - SCI will work again and Camber will get beat! (It looks like it will be easier to win against Cameron! )

I think that an NSR Corvette (as an example) will give many entrants an excellent foundation to work from, and sometimes less "tuning" is more, but for others that are willing to do more testing and experimentation, I am confident that there will be other options.

I mentioned it more than once that I have limited experience with these cars, however I have heard that the following cars are all quick: (just to mention a few)

NSR Corvette
NSR BMW
ScaleAuto Corvette
Sideways Lambo - and many of us have experience with tuning the Sideways Group 5 cars
Black Arrow Ferrari
Area 71 Ferrari
and a special secret that I can only share with Sport Racer (other please look away...) Flyslot Porsche!

Kidding aside, it will still come down to Tyres, Tires, Tyres, attention to detail and the right gearing and weight compromise!

Merry Christmas to all those that celebrate the Season!

Chris

One note that I will ensure to clarify is that if any of the top 16 does not return, then it does NOT mean that position 17 or 18 etc move up, it only means that there are more openings for new entrants - hope this is clear as mud!

Could you tell me when you expect to open registration? I would like to enter as a new entrant, or at least try and qualify for one of the spots. Brian/Duke7777

Hi Brian,

It will be great to have you in the event!

I am waiting for the next round (#4) of the current series to end, and see how the upgrade to SCI will impact our ability to post. I will start a new and updated GT3 page within the next couple of weeks (early February).

Chris
