Looks like the Mini is staying put in GS for another year. Taken from the latest SCCA Fasttrack...
"Per the SAC, the proposed move of the Mini Cooper S from GS to DS has been withdrawn."

It will be nice to see MiniCS head to DS, and I think with a good driver the SVTF can be a contender. I believe one took 8th? in Topeka, right?
Hell look at a Solstice GXP Z06 in AS, they are seconds faster then others in AS, WTF?!? Let alone over second ahead of other FTD's!

Concur with the good Reverend.
The Cooper S really had no business being in GS. Politics within the SCCA being what they are...
Remember when the WRX was first introduced and it was an HS car!?!?!?!?
Given the shift, I think it is entirely possible to see an SVTF at the National level.

|Klondike||the svt just needs a few good drivers to leave the car in GS class and learn it and i think itll do really good, last year i ran my auto spi with svt springs and dampers, and in sts i usually came in top 10, with a auto 8V! i beat out mustangs and such, within a few tenths of a sec from celicas, and tegras|

I went back through the scca national event archives and it looks like the folks that were running an SVTF back in 03, 04 and 05 were not top drivers, just one time national participants. Without data from top drivers in the SVTF, I think it's hard too say how well the car could do at nationals.
Case in point, the Shelby GT was the car to have in FS this year. It placed both 1st and 18th in FS. The 07 Mustang GT placed 2nd and dead last. The driver certainly makes a difference.
I don't know that the SVTF could ever win GS at nationals, but I think it could be a stronger contender than the results from past years would suggest.
