Just looking at others who have done it, any sort of "balance of performance" rules will kill you unless all of the cars of also lightweight. In series like PWC where the competition was Camaros and Mustangs, the Exige would be so castrated on the straights it was insane, but, because they'd made up ground on the tight sections, they still did relatively well. They had to work crazy hard for it though and were screwed on anything but a street circuit.
Thanks, I do appreciate al, the thoughts. The WRL has 5 classes, the top two are basically as follows
GPO, pwr to weight greater than 10.4
GP1, pwr to weight no greater than 10.5
The Elise is right on the boarder, they Calc using OEM weight and PWR. A stock Elise with a hardtop is [email protected]
190 which is exactly 10.5. You can then lighten the car almost as much as you want.
After you race you can petition to change class based on overall performance.
We could go almost any route, but why drive a boring car. I would rather race a Lotus and fight for 3rd than something else and try to win.
The real challenge will be to take a NA Elise to the top of the podium against those cars.
