I'm certainly of the opinion that "SS" should be the SS of two years ago - or the current SSR. IE, don't split the Corvettes off from the Elises/GT3s. I was dubious about the parity between GT3 and Elise, but John Ma, Jake and a couple of others proved that the Elise can keep up with the GT3.
I waited to write my letter til after Nats. I'm going to write one supporting putting it back to the way it was - Corvette, GT3 & Elise. I still think the Corvette is the car to have MOST of the time - I thought that before I bought my Elise. There will be days where the GT3 has a huge advantage, as will the Elise. That's ok. SS as-it-was was the reason I bought an Elise - big, healthy class. Moving the Corvettes to AS....eh. Did not agree, results suggest I was on the right track.
I don't care if they call it AS or SS; moving Elise/GT3 to AS could open SS up for....dunno, Exiges/GT3RS/R8/???, but I think that moving the Corvette out of AS into SS makes more sense, to make room for stuff in AS.
Either way, though, I was strongly of the opinion that the switch to street tires did not warrant a class change for the Corvette, and my opinion has not changed.
