Right now we are under 50 cars - we will have 2 run groups if count goes up


Count is up to 53. How many needed for 2 run groups?


Correction... how many more GTS so GTS gets its own group :P

As the driver of one of the "slower" GTS2 cars, I have to question the logic of throwing slower GTS1 and 2 cars in with the faster (read, much faster) GTS3-5, AI, SU, etc. cars just for the sake of keeping the GTS cars all together. I saw, and experienced numerous close calls at Lime Rock this July between we slower GTS1 and 2 cars and the rest of the Autobahn group. And even though I realize that racing with faster cars is part of the racing experience, having to constantly drive your mirrors for cars closing at speed differentials of as much as 50 mph, frankly makes for a less than enjoyable racing experience.

Personally, I've always liked racing in the Lightning group - more dented-up cars and more closely matched speeds. . .

Just my 2-cents worth (or lack thereof!). OK you fast GTS2 drivers, what's your take on this?

Nationals had everyone in one group with zero issue. Just sayin'.

Just signed up - got the permission from the wifey (life lesson is a divorce always costs more than racing).

Not sure which car I'll have, but I will do my best to make the Glen. Tony Senese, your comment looking at my crispy remains of a race car may end up being spot on :D
