If it's just credit for a start one is looking for and the finishing place is of no real concern, don't forget that any Production legal car/truck can run in PGT - and rentals might even be cheaper.

Just a thought ...

Of course, a strict interpretation of the rules might suggest that a P car cannot be run in PGT since its adjusted engine size is less than 2650, but that hasn't stopped people before... ;-)

You can move yourself up to a higher class, not down. I remember a case where someone from Canada running a Club event in the Northwest decided to run in G5 instead of G2 to better his chance of a class win at the time.

PGT vs P

Adrian is taking the strict constructionist view.

pg 94 (2004) "All other vehicles meeting the eligibility requirements of this section BUT WITH LARGER THAN 2650 CC adjusted will run in the Production GT class." (emphasis mine)

I can't find anywhere that EXPLICITLY authorizes that you can by choice move up in this class. Anyone?

>You can move yourself up to a higher class, not down.

press on,

The example of Gp5 vs Gp2 isn't the same, since there is no bottom limit to Gp5 displacement. Gp2 is a more restrictive subset of Gp5, and therefore a Gp2 car is eligible to run in Gp5.

The P/PGT rules have been as above for many years. The accepted practice seems to be to allow a P car to run as a PGT car, but it certainly could be protested based on the rules.

Of course, none of this helps to find a PGT car to run Rim with...

RE: PGT vs P

Yes, an interesting dialog, but as you say, the need for a car still exists! How 'bout thoughts on expense of towing versus giving the car to a car transporting company?

Cheers - Neil.
