What is the reason? What about about SOLO1? I can not remember which one is Autocross. Please set me straight if you can. Do you have a link to this info?WRXhauls said:I was going to be a WRX trade-in to upgrade to STI - but since it looks like the STI will not be allowed to compete in STX (SCCA SOLOII classification), I will be doing something different.
edit for spelling
I'd like to know more about this too.WRXhauls said:I was going to be a WRX trade-in to upgrade to STI - but since it looks like the STI will not be allowed to compete in STX (SCCA SOLOII classification), I will be doing something different.
WRXhauls, would you be willing to "Cut and Paste" some of the thread here for those who don't belong to Yahoo groups? Ha your post was telepathic. You posted the answer before I could ask the favor. 8) Thanks.WRXhauls said:...Go to yahoo groups and check out streettouring. It is a very popular and active group with national level soloII competition. It is also monitored by a couple of the advisory board members that makes suggestions to the official rules committee.
It was not stated as fact - but it was to be a very strong likely hood, that the STI (and EVO) would be treated as a limited production higher performance variant of a car that is already class competitive (same as BMW M3), and specifically excluded due to its potential overdog status.
You bring up a very good point, driver competence. That is the biggest variable in the any of the classes, since the classes are based on vehicle capability not on driver ability.91TB78 said:Even if they put the STi in SPB can't a novice like myself work up to a level where drivers typically found in that category would be found?
Well I know they have plenty of practice AutoX sessions so I am not too worried. Not too mention I would be doing it purely for fun, hobby, sport. I'm not looking at becoming a professional.Anyway, if the STi is classified well the answer to your question is "yes".
