Since there was more interest in this topic, I pulled the messages from the streettouring archives. If I understand correctly, the STAC is the street touring advisory committee that makes recommendations to the SEB (solo e? board) for final decisions.
As for the stock, or SP classes, I haven't heard anything. I believe that if a model sells 1000 units, it is considered as a separate model (ITR exception). See http://www.moutons.org/sccasolo/
for more unofficial classing info.

As I have stated before, these cars will _not_ be allowed in STX.
See earlier posts for details.

As a small portion of the powers that be, my short answer is _NO_.
I would strongly support excluding both for the same reason that
six-cylinder M3's are excluded--they are too fast (or at least are
expected to be) relative to the core of STX. I see the core of STX
as the Integra Type R, the BMW E30 M3, and the Subaru WRX.
Both the Type R and the E30 M3 are factory hot rods. The WRX
is not quite as nimble as the hot rods but has more power. I see
these three as a fair fight. Of course there are others which, if
well prepared and driven, may surprise us--and that's Ok. Like
I said, from the information I have, the STi and EVO VIII would
likely be overdogs and ruin a good thing.
BTW: I am against allowing 2-seater cars into STX now. Whether
they would dominate or not, many people think they might and
that decreases the number of people willing to build a car for STX,
just when it needs to grow into a real class.
