and including the mods in your sig, you would be in ST if you ran street tires, and DSP if you ran race rubber

edit, actually the test pipe (ORP) might automatically bump you into DSP. DSP is a tough class, populated by alot of BMWs and alot of the small turbo cars

I'd say ST, but seeing your engine mods in your sig might bump you out to FSP or even SM. Take a look at the downloadable rule book on there's also a quicklook guide in the stickied threads. It's a little out of date but it will give you a good idea.

OP- also a good idea to check out, there should be a link to find your region as well as checking out the rule book.

Biggest piece of advice, show up early and ask questions. The Tech inspector can help you class your car, if needed, and walk the course with somebody who can show you how to visualize the course. In most cases they will have a more experienced person sit shotgun for your first run or two. once again, Ask Questions. The majority of people at these things are more than willing to help new people out. and don't worry about hitting a cone or two, some of our more experienced guys have taken out more than 10 in a run (tho we wanted to kill him after picking them all up, lol). And the most important thing, have fun!
