uk time attack car classes

Can anyone explain the class breakdowns a bit more.
The website seems lacking in what sort of mods seperate classes.

Id be looking with a standard engine just a remap, but full weight saving, roll cage fuel tank relocation uprated breaks and suspension for the first year doing this sort of thing. Dont want to be bumped up into a class that requirs the race licence due to weight.

Any info would be apreciated thanks.

Stripping out the interior, polycarb windows, etc would put you into Club 4WD, as would removing/altering the stock fuel tank from it's original location.

Sorry to hijack but what class would a Evo 6 with a full interior/standard seats and no cage but with Ohlins R&T, AP brakes and 550bhp? Also, does anyone know how much the control tyres are in 225/40/18?

Bit of a tricky one really, because in terms of power it sounds like a Club 4WD car, but I'm pretty sure you'd need race seats and a harness to qualify. So probably Clubman Plus as it stands right now.

For a definitive view it's simple enough to email Simon Slade ([email protected]) and he will definitely get back to you.

The best person to give you prices on tyres is Shaun Marriott of Pirelli. His mobile no is 07974153559 (I found that number on a Google search so hopefully ok to pass on publicly).

Its the tyres that limit the lower classes I think because your too limited on choice and the pirellis are an absolute rip off compared to similar tyres from other brands

Do you mean in terms of the number of potential entries? The Pirelli Trofeo is a premium track tyre and probably rated by many top TA teams as the best you can buy in terms of dry weather performance.

Yes, it put me off completely when i priced a set up and they were coming in at just over a grand in the size I needed. I'm not saying there a bad tyre as i've never used them so I can't comment on that but if the lower "budget" classes weren't limited to 1 particular tyre i'm sure there would be alot more entries. Infact, back when the tyre choice was from say list 1a or 1b there were alot more entries. Even when it was R888's it was better

Others have made similar comments, but the reality is that the sponsorship deal that Pirelli has with TA probably helps to keep entry fees lower than they might otherwise be so it's all a balancing act.

The tyres most will use in the road going classes will be the Trofeo R...It's a fantastic tyre in dry and alot quicker than other 1B tyres they are pushing on the door of a slick. If costs is a bother you will get a lot more life out of a Trofeo than most other 1B tyres on the market so won't need to buy as much in a year if doing a season.
Also worth remembering if you enter you do get a decent amount of money off retail price
