    Grand-Am Rolex Series is running at Laguna Seca Saturday. I thought it might be fun to run a sports car race there also, maybe on Sunday?

    I was thinking of using the Continental Tire Series GS class as a starting point with the following cars:

    2010 Camaro RS
    2007 or 2010 Shelby GT500 Mustang
    2005 or 2008 BMW M3 (not the 2002 M3-GTR - trying to keep purchase price below 50k before upgrades)
    2004, 2005, or 2008 Subaru WRX STI
    2006 Cayman S (997 is permitted in GS class, but trying to maintain 50k credit cap)
    2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe (not HKS coupe)
    2004 Pontiac GTO
    2003 Fairlady Z
    2010 Audi S4
    2009 Dodge Challenger

    Cars built to A 600 (this should put them at about the same performance level as the actual race cars)

    We can also run the ST class

    Looks like the ST class cars (tuned to B 500) could be fun too...

    2007 or 2010 Audi TT
    2010 Acura TSX
    2008 or 2011 BMW Z4
    2005 Chevy Cobalt SS
    2004, 2006, or 2007 Honda Civic
    2010 Kia Forte
    2009 or 2010 Mazdaspeed 3
    2007 or 2010 Mazda MX-5
    2004 Mazda RX-8
    2003 or 2009 Mini Cooper
    2010 Boxter S
    2005 Scion TC
    2005 or 2010 Subaru Legacy
    2006 or 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTi

    In keeping with the spirit of the RULES no engine or drivetrain swaps please.

    Please post if interested. I know this is kind of short notice, so we could kick the race date back a few days if people want time to tune, etc.

    And for those concerned with realistic paint schemes, there are some good Grand-Am/Continental Tires Series contingencies on the storefront. I bought mine. If I'd made my own, I'd share.

    Shouldn't be too bad to swap the original engine back in to build off of.
