    I've gotten into arguments with old-guard SCCA rallyists over that. They INSIST "H" is in addition to your regular class. The Rally America rulebooks says otherwise, but they don't want to read. They "know" it.

    I'm with ya, at our first "major" rally, 100 AW 2012, after the repaint, I wanted to run H and was curtly told by a paid member of the RA staff that she might have some stickers around somewhere but it wasn't really a class and I would need G5's. I told her I'd just as soon have the Hs anyway.

    If you look at it, there are more H eligible cars running the rallies around us than there are G5s

    It was most likely Rob Wright.

    And before anyone chides us on the tire choice, I'll quote the RA rules for Historic class.
    And if you read down from the quoted paragraph, you will find that one of the four preparation rules for the class is 11.3.A.2. Wheels and tires are free.

    They are. Because vintage consumables like dampers and tires are much more difficult to obtain than hard parts.

    We are holding our SAAB build to a higher standard.

    Not really.

    What Jeff wanted from the car was a period build. And he wanted to strictly adhere to the period. The fact that it could also be a Historic class entry was a bonus.

    I found that when I was sitting with Mike Whitman is his 510 and trying to read the mechanical Halda a few years ago, that the numbers had gotten smaller (and harder to read) through time.....

    (Kinda like drivers suits do, also)

    Since then, I have had cataract surgery. Does that mean I am no longer period eligible by your standards?

    It was Rob Wright that inspected the cage, just like Mark thought.
    Just contact him and arrange a date, time and location for the inspection.
    He is a very good guy and easy to deal with.

    Hope your build is going well and that we will see you on stage in the future.
