He's being vague but I assume he must be talking about a turbo RX-7. But there are lots of cars with no ST home...including many C5Z06, C6, & C7 Vettes.
Street Touring was revamped several years ago to have only one class for a given car, kinda like Street. There are a few exceptions that are specifically mentioned in Appendix A, but the Street Touring class-hopping ended some time ago.
Funny how my brain converted "Mazda" to "Miata".
Does ST need a full blown set of classes comparable to SP? Yes. Including an ASP equivalent. I think part of the issue is the ST and SP have always been a little too close in mods to have both with 6 or more sub classes. If ST is just SP with street tires, then do we really need both? Maybe ST needs a little more restrictive, or SP needs a little more open allowances?
ST-OP is a terrible name for a class, and Street Touring Ultimate (and Extreme) kind of boxes the SCCA in. What is better/faster than Ultimate or Extreme? Can't use Super, as we already have a STS. Super Duper maybe ;-).
Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge has a Import class, maybe we need a CAM style class to capture those cars as well?
