    Default Need help re: SCCA Classing Noble and Rossion

    We have been in some discussions with the people in SCCA about getting the cars classed in XP (X-Prepared). This is the class I ran in this weekend at the SCCA ProSolo in El Toro California. I was running against modified supercharged Miata, Supercharged Elise, Rotary powered Sprite, and Sylvia.

    I was told this weekend by someone, that this might all happen favorably for the Noble and Rossion, but they need more letters from other owners. Basically they want to know if there is more than just one person (me) planning on autocrossing the car.

    So, what I need is this. Send an email to seb@scca,org asking that the Noble M12, M400 and Rossion Q1 be classed in XP for SOLO.

    They are considering other cars including the Mosler. We think the Noble and Rossion cars are a perfect fit as minimum weights are around 1700+ pounds and the Noble and Rossion are nearer to 2400+ pounds, but can be driven to a midpack result with stock suspensions as I demonstrated this last weekend.

    Now is when the letter writing becomes crucial.
    Thanks for your help!
    This would give us a very nice place to play in SCCA Solo.

    Is XP SOLO only for Auto Crossing, or is that for class racing otherwise in XP ?

    Default XP classification

    I sent my email to the SEB endorsing the XP classification decision. I agree that it would be a good fit for the car even though we have a bit of a weight disadvantage, we'll make it up with agile horses.
    I really like the fact that XP has prevailed over the Modified classes, It was my opinion nothing good was going to come out of that.

    I look forward to getting the classification done and over with. This will give the cars the legitimacy they deserve. We will earn its respect out on the track!

    I just joined the SCCA and sent them an email letting them know that the reason I was joining was because of this proposal.

    Thank You Randy for organizing this.

    Rep love to everyone that sends a letter. (That includes nonowners and non SCCA members.)

    The nice thing about XP is your car's minimum weight is determined by displacement. A mid-engined 3000cc turbo = 2124 lbs.
