This posting is in response to a previous posting in August 2003 that I made. I stated something which was incorrect, and at at the request of the CARS president I am posting this correction.
Group 5 cars are welcome in Canada as per the CARS rules. Any US competitor competing on an SCCA licence may enter their US Group 5 car in any event in Canada and be elegible for event awards.
To further atone for my error in only stating part of the rule, I am making the following offer. (Good things come in threes)
I will personally pay one third of the entry fee for the first three elegible Group 5 cars that enter the 2004 Galway Cavendish Forest Rally. In addition, I will personally fund a $300 US prize award for a Group 5 class provided there are three legitimate starters in Group 5 for that event.
(This may be a safe offer as there is currently no organizer for the 2004 CGFR, however that is a risk I am willing to take)
Sincerely,
Peter Watt

excellent! i have competed with my Group 5 car in Canada several times and the only hassle i have ever gotten was regarding the turbo restrictor- aways cleared up quickly as long as you can produce the SCCA rule book to prove G5 doesn't run with a restrictor. given the right conditions a fast G5 car can duke it out with the 4wd open class cars. i'm not saying my car can, but some G5 cars out there surely can!

Open class 2wd cars in Canada do not need a restrictor... D5 of rules state that "All open class turbo-charged 4wd vehicles must have a turbocharger air inlet orfice of 34mm or less." it does not say that 2wd cars need a restrictor.
