I would more than likely be racing in the Prepared or Modified Class under the SCCA rules for the Solo Circuit.
This is definitely for Racing and not just for looks or cred. I'm looking to have fun while still being competitive.
One thing I'll be weighing in on are the cost to Power ratio for doing the Cosworth over a Turbocharged 2.0 or 2.3 if I can find a good one locally. Another reason I want to go this route is to be a little different.
