Not sure. There were like 20 different classes, all of which are apparently unique to Porsche club racing.

Every time I see your car it makes me sad I sold my FB. Excellent driving, car seems to grab like a cat on carpet.

Thanks. The grip of these tires is simply amazing! After spending the last six years racing on (literally) the cheapest tires I could find, now I feel like I've been shot out of a cannon. lol.

I bought the car about 8 years ago as a total basket case. Paid way too much for it, and absolutely nothing worked. Found this forum, started learning and fixing and now here I am. My 11 and 13 year old boys would kill me in my sleep if I ever sold it. They don't realize that it will be buried with me when I die....

Thanks Guys! I'll tell you, it sure feels great putting the hurt to guys running so much horsepower while I've only got 1100 cc's of displacement to work with.

I've been determined for years now to prove that a 1st gen can be a potent competitor, so yeah, it feels pretty good. Even my wife is finally starting to "get into it" a bit, cheering at the finish line and such.
