2.    VEHICLE TYPE AND CLASS

2.1    Vehicle Type

(1)    Each vehicle entered by a competitor in an event in the Supersprint Series must be classified by type according to   Table One below
(“Type”).

(2)    To qualify for classification as a certain Type, the vehicle must meet the criteria specified for that Type.

(3)    Any vehicle that is not manufactured by Alfa Romeo is classified as “Non Alfa” Type with the exception of Alfa Romeo Specials.
This class will have the sub-classes:
a.    Under 2000 cc
b.    Over 2000 cc

(4)    Alfa Romeo Specials

1.     Philosophy: for vehicles developed or fabricated using Alfa Romeo components.

These vehicles may either be:

b.    Alfa Romeo engine/driveline with foreign coachwork, e.g. Ricciardi
2.    This class does not have any sub classes, all vehicles are classed equally.

(5)    To assist interpretation, the intention of Table One is that vehicles
will be classified broadly as follows:

(a)    Type 1:  unmodified, road registered vehicles.
These are road registered vehicles with no modifications.

(b)    Type 2(a): slightly modified road registered vehicles.
These are road registered vehicles that have been slightly modified but not to the extent that overall the modifications are likely to give significant performance improvements.

Type 2(b): modified road registered vehicles.
These are road registered vehicles that have been modified to the extent that overall the modifications are likely to give significant performance improvements.

(c)    Type 3: vehicles modified for racing.  These are vehicles that have been modified for the purpose of improving performance for racing, but are not modified beyond recognition of the original car.

(d)    Type 4: vehicles substantially modified for racing.
These are vehicles that have been substantially modified for the purpose of improving performance for racing with most components of the car modified or substituted.

(e)    Formula 98:  These are road registered front wheel drive vehicles of 2L and 4 cylinder with limited modifications produced from 1998 onwards.

2.    VEHICLE TYPE AND CLASS CONT.

(6)    Despite anything else in these Regulations, a vehicle that does not meet all of the criteria for a Type set out in Table One, may be classified as that Type by the Competition Secretary to             achieve the intent of these Regulations as set out in subregulation 2.1(5).
In any such case, the Competition Secretary may request the competitor to modify the vehicle to achieve performance parity with other vehicles of that Type.

2.2    Vehicle Class

In addition to Type, each vehicle entered by a competitor in an event in the Supersprint Series must be classified into a class as follows (“Class”).

CLASS ENGINE CAPACITY

A   Less than or equal to 1600cc
