If I have two cars for GT Sprints, that would run in two different classes (e.g. GT2 and GT4), could I alternate between them on different race weekends throughout the season ?

Could I alternate between the two cars on the same weekend if I chose to do so (assuming I sign up as such, pay all the necessary entry fees, etc.) ?

Could I race them both in both classes on the same weekend if the grids were split (e.g. GT1/2, GT3/4/5) ?

Would I accumulate points in both classes too for any or all of the above scenarios ?

Points are points in your classes regardless of car. I for think overall championship carries points from different classes.

If grid was split you would not have time to get into gt4 car at pregrid.

Better to consider getting mustang prepped and approved for Varac and run it in G90

Thanks for the reply Doug, I appreciate it.

After I am done the car may not be VARAC compliant so I want to keep all my options open.

Take care, be happy.

G90 should work for you. Not sure what you could do to it that would not be compliant.

The main thing is for you to be able to run multiple grids in the same day as a Sprint grid your options are VARAC or Challange if they still have a grid in the spring.

Late model non Ford engine perhaps.

How about resurrecting the old Special GT race (only old folks will remember what that is). It was a Formula Libre for sedans for the younger ones information.
No classes, open to any sedan that had run in the Sprints that weekend, for no extra entry fee. No points just fun.

Great idea. I was not around then but it sounds a lot like what they did on last weekend for the free 30 minute race. Almost 60 registered!

I would even suggest a small donation to charity for each entry.

If you had someone bring the car up to the grid for you, and take your other car to the paddock, you may have just enough time!

I suppose if you stopped in the hot pit and jumped wall into second car.

You have to make 3 minute board or start at the back.

Terry, I seem to recall us paying a small fee to run the second class as well. Don't remember the amount in comparison to the main entry fee, but it was certainly very reasonable for the extra track time.

Good to hear from you Ed, it's been awhile. I have no objection to paying for extra track time (I was trying to get it for free), but perhaps it could be used to give back to the marshals in some way, they sure deserve something.

Hey Ed I think that would be a great idea! Maybe a 50/50 draw for the marshals each weekend with the rest going to yearly needs or equipment for them.

Hi Steve,

really looking forward to next year for sure, at my age I have to get as much seat time as possible (as quickly as possible).

I wish you well Steve, be happy.
