    You pay at the event, not online. You don't have to register online but it makes your check-in at the event go much quicker for you as well as the event coordinators. SASCA/SPOKES members must be registered online to receive the member discount at the event.

      Common Questions Asked

      What class do I run in?

      Mostly-stock S2000s run in B-Stock or BS. Here are the allowable mods...
      - Any brake pads.
      - Up to 2-way adjustable shocks, you must keep the stock springs and the stock ride height.
      - Can change out the front sway bar only. Cannot modify the rear sway bar.
      - Stock wheels or wheels that have the same diameter and width as stock wheels; offset can be within 5% of stock.
      - Drop-in air filter but you must keep the stock air-box.
      - Must retain stock header and catalytic converter but you can remove or change out the cat-back exhaust.
      - R-Compound tires (ex: Hoosier A6) can be used and size doesn't matter as long as it fits on the stock wheels.
      - If you are running Tire PAX the treadwear must be 140 or greater.

      If you have yours slightly modified for street you can run in Street Touring Roadster or STR. This is the class I run and allowable mods...
      - Any brake pads.
      - Any spring, shock, ride-height height combination.
      - Any front and/or rear sway bar.
      - You can run up to 9" width for wheels.
      - You can run up to 255 width for tires but the treadwear (UTQG) must be 140 or greater.
      - Header, cat, and cat-back can be changed out; you can remove the cat-back completely if you wish.
      - You must retain some form of a catalytic converter be it the stock one or a high-flow cat.
      - You can change out suspension bushings but they must not have any more metal content than OEM ones.
      - Camber joints are allowed.
      - Race seats are allowed but the seat and rail must be at least 18 lbs combined.
      - Harnesses are allowed but ONLY if you have a rollbar to mount them to. Stock roll-hoops don't count and neither do seat-bolt locations.
      - Rollbars are allowed only if you retain the factory interior; you may cut the interior to allow fitment.
      - You can reflash the ECU but must retain the stock unit; rules are being worked on to help out AP1s so stay tuned on that.

      If you have more modifications than the classes above or some that break the rules then you are most likely in B-Street Prepared (BSP) or F-Prepared (FP). If you are running boost you will most likely be in Super Street Mod (SSM) For that I point you to the 2011 SCCA Solo Rulebook @

        Yesterday's event was awesome. We had 117 drivers. Ricky, Adolfo, Jourdan, and myself were there from Centex. We need more of you out there! I think I saw 2 suzuka blue, one yellow, and Jason's black CR (but he doesn't post here I believe)
