    Default Lotus 2-Eleven now approved for SCCA racing in America

    Nick and the guys at Lotus Sport have been working on this for over a year and we have finally done it.

    Now if you want to race your 2-Eleven in the USA you can.

    You will just need to add a couple of bits and Lotus Sport is going to make a kit/checklist of what you need.

    We presented the car at the SCCA race at Buttonwillow on November 15th.


    They had never seen one before and the SCCA asked them to go over it with a fine toothed comb.



    As you can see they made us take the front clam off and spent 3 hours teching the car. (You guys will have it easy as we did the hard part here).

    The SCCA people were all very nice and a great bunch. They were very interested in the car and happy to see it.

    They then gave me a log book and we were off to the races



    We did wash the car Sunday.



    And then i even got a race win on my birthday



    We ran the race in ASR and they have since the race placed the 2-Eleven in ST

    Here is a list of the other cars in ST




    So if you want to go SCCA racing next year get a 2-Eleven ASAP

    Congrats Patrick!

    But wow, that's going to be tough competition in the ST category (I assume ST is the new class above T1?).

    Yes it is. Patrick is going to need to work on recruiting cars and drivers for that class though. It is still in its infancy as a class.

    Where are the rules on what you can or can not do to the cars for ST?

    If it is like T1-T3, which I'm guessing it is, you cannot do anything in the way of modifications beyond safety equipment outlined for the class and what is listed alongside the car make/model/year in the notes section of the GCR (same as that you attached above). The cars are essentially showroom stock with very minimal mods to balance them out (brake ducts and other such mods). Some cars get bigger weight and mod breaks than others.

    EDIT: just realized you said where, so: http://scca.com/documents/Club%20Rul...20GCR/STCS.pdf
