SCCA HS auto-x class
 
Looks like the HS class may get a little tougher for those of us who run in it. Here are some of the cars dropping from GS to HS:

Acura -
RSX (non-s)
TSX

Honda -
Civic SI (99-00 & 02+)

Hyundai -
Tiburon V6 (02+)

Pontiac -
Vibe (all)

Saturn with DOCH (assuming not FI)

Toyota-
Matrix (all)

Mazda-
3 (all)

Nissan-
200sx SE-R (95+)

Some will pose a threat while others not so much. It will also have a lot to do with driver ability.

Yeah, the Coopers will continue to own... What class was the RSX before?

MyBlackST 11-09-2005 02:44 PM

All of those are going from GS to HS as of 1/1/2006. Bust as fas as the regional level...it will add some comp....There was only like 3-5 cars, at most, in HS here before. National level = mini dominate.[?|]

I hope they don't allow the new SI to fall into HS. And I'm surprised to see the Mazda 3 fall down into HS.

Where does the Sentra SE-R/Spec V lie?

Sentra SE-R is going from DS to GS.

Here's the Fastrack info:

Yeah, never really had much problem with the Spec-Vs, I thought that they were mis-classed in DS.

Doubt it, it's pretty much a RSX Type-S (a better one at that).

I doubt it too, but it just is currently placed that way. Wouldn't make any sense to me... or all the autocrosser out there. That's good to see the Spec V's going to GS. That'll hopefully bring in a little more competition here locally.
