View Full Version : What class am I?
Okay, question for the group... Here's my ride:
1995 Mitsu Mirage - stock except rims
1.5L 12V SOHC (93 HP / 92 lb-ft)
2085 lbs without driver
So, what class is this? There was no listing for this type of car (also sold as a Dodge Colt and Eagle Summit - note that they redesigned them in 1993) in the old guide on soloontario.com, which has now been taken down.
Last WOSCA event I was running in B2 but I think I might have been B3? Note that I'm not complaining that "waah the orgs put me in the wrong class" because I said B2 myself... I'm just not sure now that I see the other cars that ran in B2 vs B3.

You are correct in that the colts(non-turbo)from '88-'93 are classed in B2.I would think that should remain,however you car has not been classed and the rules require that you request this from the casc-or solo 2 director.
You should provide your proposed class and back up material such as your cars car specs and comparable cars specs.
I did this exact thing in '99 with regards to my '99 civic SIR,they placed it in BSS with 2 points which I felt was wrong.I provided road and track/car and driver etc specs for my car and an integra GSR which was classed in B1.The GSR beat the the SIR by a small margin in all performance tests,but instead of lowering my class the director at that time that it would be better to bring the GSR even with the SIR instead!
So alot of GSR guys now know it was me that screwed them up along with me.For the record I still don't think the SIR belongs in SS as a starting point.

I'll second that! I also think the WRX is a C1 car, but what are going to do?:confused:
Jay you can mention that you've been running with WOSCA and that we've classed you in B2. Although, now that I see your weight I could see a B1 argument coming.
Well, I assumed I was in B2 since that is where the last gen NA Colts/Mirages were placed... Keep in mind the weight is probably off because my car is an automatic (that figure was for a lighter manual) but not by much. Also the last gen NA could mean a 1.5 SOHC, like mine, or a 1.6 DOHC. I found the old .pdfs on my hard drive and I think unless I get an official classification I should continue to run in B2. (I'll be moving up to SS or Mod soon enough anyway.)

I would suggest that you have your car classed because if you plan on moving up to SS and beyond the # of prep points could jump up and bite you on the ass.It would suck to do 6 points worth of prep only to find your car gets reclassed to B1 with only 4 points allowed and get sent up to SP-exactly what happened with my SIR.(I assumed B1(prior to being classed) and lowered mine than found out it started in BSS with only 2 points-springs are 3!)
Just my .02 cents
For comparison, according to CNAC classes you would be in the same class as:
new mini-cooper (non-S)
Acura integra 86-89
