#15730 Non-factory/Non-standard Body Reinforcement Allowance Proposal
In accordance with the recommendation of the SAC, the SEB proposes adding a new paragraph to 13.1, as follows:
“Front bumpers, rear bumpers, body trim pieces and attachment points may be reinforced to prevent or repair
damage from hitting cones.. Reinforcements that are not visible to the exterior of the car are allowed provided
they do not serve any other purpose. Modifications that change the exterior appearance in any way are not
Everyone should read this issue of FASTRACK and comment on issues or they won't know what you think about the proposed changes. Do you really want the C7 Vettes in AS to mess with the Z06 monopoly? Another topic. Only one issue can be addressed on each email.
I bought a 2004 C Street RX8 5 years ago with a few beauty add-ons, a few screens and strakes on the fenders and facia chrome front and rear. Two screens protect the oil coolers. They are also pretty. No one cares outside of Nationals. No one cared at a Tour as I placed out of the trophies. These would make my car illegal per this rule. Where will it go? CSP? End of SCCA involvement unless they make a local call on enforcement of this proposed rule.
I also bought a 2000 C5 Vette last year with German Autobahn inspired, dealer installed Tiger Shark front and rear facias which actually weight slightly more than the stock bolt-on(s). Ekler Corvette still sells these, et al. Also some screens for fender openings, strakes and protection of oil coolers. The rear has a cleaner Euro stock look with a duck bob spoiler. Again no one locally cares about these 175mph aero features other than everyone I've met loves the look. Where will it go? BSP? Whoa, again end of SCCA involvement. Nobody with a bigger than 4 cylinder motor can go to ST where all this stuff is allowed?

No skin off my nose as I'm 69 and have 6 Marquis Clubs to run with twice a month year round in FL. I just have a few good friends still running SCCA stock classes once a month for 6 local events/ year. I can always just show up for free as a guest and visit them.
