    I am currently running A 97 Type R in T2 in the NWR and after a season I have decided that the prep rules are a little too restrictive for my liking. There had been talk of the SCCA modifying the rules to allow the SVWC cars a place to run besides their race series without crushing the T1/T2 cars. I have an e-mail from the SCCA that it will not happen after all and so I was wondering if I would be allowed to run in ITE? What are the rules for ITE? Could I prep my car to SVWC rules and run in ITE? Could I go further? Does every Region have an ITE class?

    Thanks for any help!!

    The Southeast Division had ITE but it is scheduled to be dropped in 2001 due to lack of participation. We do have SPO (2.0 and over) and SPU (under 2.0). These classes are specifically provided by SEDiv to give pro series cars such as World Challenge, Trans-AM and Motorola Cup a place to run in Regional events. Basically if you have a car that doesn't fit any other class...SPO/U is your place in SEDiv!

    Good luck in 2001 SCCAForums Image

    The ITE class from what I have seen is for any car that doesnt fit a class. I ran a mustang in ITE last year(NER region) and had a blast.

    ITE is a catch all class, but is accepted and fairly well subsribed in the CenDiv. I have flagged up to a dozen at Mid Ohio and multiple car counts are popular at Nelson's Ledges as well. I think the key requirement is that you have the rulebook of the series the car was initially prepared for at tech, and the car can't be too out of hand [Say, no Trans Am cars or Grand Am GT-3 porsches].

    If you want to race, watch the race flyers to see if the class is listed.

    Thanks everyone for your input! It is nice to receive some rational answers unlike some other boards that I frequent. I believe that the NWR also has SPO/SPU so I will look into that further.

    FYI - In 2000 NWR did adopt the same ITE
    class and rules as have been used in Ore
    Region for the past several years. It
    remains to be seen if NWR will continue to
    support the ITE class however. I asked
    Joan Manley to keep it alive. You may want
    to do the same ASAP. I hear the meeting
    covering classes for 2001 may be history
    though.

    As for the exact rules I suggest you go here. [url="http://www.slowrider-racing.org/iteclass.htm"]http://www.slowrider-racing.org/iteclass.htm[/URL]

    We are expecting several more cars in Ore
    Region in 2001. There were apx 6 to 8
    ITE cars last year. The more the merrier
    I say.

    let me know if you have any questions.
