When in doubt, shoot the regions Chief Instructor a note ahead of time, and he'll give you a feel for where he thinks you should be classified. If you disagree - you can dialogue with him before the event.

Mid-Atlantic is running 3 or 4 weekends at VIR in 2008 -all full course so you'd have lots of opportunity to excersize your car. Also should be some CMP dates with the Southeast region as well.

When you're ready, the NASA Comp School is the best $300 you'll spend (ever!) on your car. It is truly mind-opening about what it takes to race, and how much you can make the car do that you never thought possible.

I'll be at VIR with my SF car (#111) in February, so hopefully we'll see you there.
Great - thanks for the info! Hopefully I'll see you at VIR

Another quick question - Can I run my car in the NASA race school if it isn't fully caged? I'll be adding an AutoPower 4-point this winter, but that's as far as I plan to go with this particular car.
