Re: Requests for Base Car list updates here

inspection or Scrutineering. The vehicle shall meet the following basic

.1 A wheelbase of 183 cm (72") or longer; front and rear tracks of 107 cm (42") or wider. The maximum permissible height of competing vehicles is 160 cm (63 inches). Please note that this prohibits most SUVs and pickup trucks from participation in SoloSprint.

The way that this rule has been applied is to the stock height of the vehicle, not the "as used" height.

The MY98-02 Forester is still within the guidelines you've mentioned... It appears I had mis-quoted the information.

External dimensions:
- overall length (mm): 4,450
- overall width (mm): 1,735
- overall height (mm): 1,595
- ground clearance (mm): 191
- wheelbase (mm): 2,525
- front track (mm): 1,471
- rear track (mm): 1,450
- curb to curb turning circle (mm): 11,674

The only time that value doesn't apply is when roof rack crossbars have been installed which bump the height to 1,650mm.
The same thing applied to the 2004 Forester XT which appears to have made it onto your base car list already with the following noted height measurements:
