TOPEKA, Kan. (Oct. 13, 2012) – Sports Car Club of America’s Board of Directors approved a proposal to reorganize its Club Racing Touring and Showroom Stock classes for 2013.
First proposed in 2011, with a final revision submitted by the Club Racing Board Oct. 9, the proposal takes the cars competing in six classes – Touring 1-3, Showroom Stock B and C and Super Touring® Over and arranges them into five new classes – Touring 1-4 and B-Spec.
“This reorganization has been a thorough process that has taken more than one year to develop and has included an incredible amount of work by the Club Racing Board and its sub-committee, as well as copious amounts of input from the Touring and Showroom Stock racing community,” SCCA Vice-Chair Lisa Noble said. “This reorganization, including the splitting of B-Spec out into its own class, will provide a solid platform for these classes to flourish for many years.”
2013 New Class Summary
2013 Touring 1 – Includes 2012 Touring 1 cars with performance adjustments and de-tuned STO cars*
