Do you think the proposed Historic rules revisions are an improvement over the current 2004 rules?

Please respond with nitpicks to the thread.

Tho I love the proposal, my nit....

(edit to eliminate brainfart, add 'displacement' in key locations)

...is the incorporation of 4WD and supercharging. I don't want to exclude 4WD &/or supercharging, I'd want to separate them.

Unless you intent to make this a demonstration class (no points, no trophies)(?).

Why not separate into H1 and H2 classes? The difference would be H1 is 2WD N/A, H2 is 4WD, G5-like displacement, and/or supercharged.

If the entered point/trophy Historic class is too small, you get dumped/bumped into the appropriate non-historic class (Production or G2 from H1, PGT, G5, or Open from H2).

This all assumes that more than two historic cars show up for a rally. I wouldn't mind coming in second to a Stratos.

Don't forget that the Mazda GTX will be 25 years old soon....

RE: Tho I love the proposal, my nit....

There aren't enough entrants now to require seperating the cars by capacity or drive type.

If we get 5 or 10 cars at an event we could look into that.

So that was a deliberate part of the proposal.

And there's no way my Cortina could keep up with a BDG Escort either. I think H should be a big umbrella class for "cool old cars". It is less about competition than it is about showing up and getting people excited.

Stratos ok as is....

...is the incorporation of 4WD and supercharging. I don't want to exclude 4WD &/or supercharging (God, I'd love to see a Stratos on stage),

- Stratos had neither; No 4WD, no SC....just an healty Ferrari Dino V6 (and some RallyCross cars had Ferrari 308GTS V8)

Ooops!...Brainfart alert! RE: Stratos ok as is....

You're right...

I was thinking displacement, too (hence the G5 reference), just didn't write it originally...going back to edit now...


And, Glenn, I agree that, unless a few more historics show up, there's no point in splitting them up. Just wishful thinking provisions for that <smirk> eventuality....
