Question Classing Confusion

The novice group has grown to 15-20 per event and regularly include rowdy cars like s2000s and Lotus. There are only 2 or 3 who run H-Stock around here and I wonder if I should skip novice and just register H-stock? I know, the Minis will be tough.

And do I want to be in the Street Tire Index?

Thanks, nOOb

Don't know how the group you run with handles novice scoring. But the club I run with put all novices in one class and uses the PAX index for scoring. Doing it this way a H-stock car will do pretty good against a novice in a faster car. As they tend to be tougher to drive for some one inexperienced.
I run regular H-stock on r-comps and have done pretty well in Pax.

Keep running and having fun, and remember not to over drive and that trophy will come so enough! Oh , and in my club that first trophy means no more novice class no matter how few events a beginner has run.
