The following was included in February's SCCA Fastrack:
"SHOWROOM STOCK C
In the world automobile industry, the auto manufactures have a system to designate the size of the cars they offer â€“ these are known as â€œclassesâ€. The CRB is currently working with a number of manufactures to allow the B-class cars a place to race against one another. The current trend in the industry is that the manufactures want their cars to race against the cars they compete with in the market place.
B-Class cars are 2 to 5 door, front wheel drive cars with engine sizes from 1300 to 1600cc and seating for 4 adults.
The CRB, in an effort to strengthen the numbers in Showroom Stock C, will be adding the B-Spec cars to SSC. In cooperation with the manufacturers, we will allow the cars a â€œlimited-prepâ€ configuration, the basis of which is:
- Complete removal of the interior, except the dash
- Full SCCA spec roll cage
- Shocks, springs and a sway-bar package available only from the manufacturers
- 15 inch x 7 inch aftermarket wheels with a minimum weight of 13 pounds
The following are the targeted cars for B-Spec SSC cars:
- Ford Fiesta
- Honda Fit
- Hyundai Accent
- KIA Rio
- Nissan Versa
- Toyota Yaris
The CRBâ€™s target date for classification of these new cars is the spring of 2011."
