Have the supp regs been 100% finalised or is it still work in progress?

Club Class:
Modifications to Engine; Transmission/Drive train; Suspension/Brakes; Chassis are free.
Interior maybe removed; a full length dashboard must be retained.
Any vehicle running a lap time of 1:18.000 or below will be placed into Club Class.
Any vehicle classed as Club Class that runs a time faster than a 1:18.000 on the day of competition
will be moved into the appropriate class.
All entries competing in Club Class are only permitted to run tyres on the MGEC Time Attack Approved
Tyre List applicable to their class and below.
(Please refer to http://www.gsr-evo-club.net for further vehicle class regulation information).


I assume that is supposed to be 'Open' Class'?

Looks like Club Class to me; has 'Club Class' written 4 times in that quote! :D

Regulations are now public!

Club/Open rules seem very broad scope to comply to which shouldn't rule anyone out; and I am excited to see the intelligence of competitors to set up to the constraints.

Start stripping some weight or find ways to retard your setup; I think this is going to be an awesome season as always. Get on it :)

Yeah. I understand why you think it should say 'Open' EVO85, but you need to read it a few times to fully understand.
Essentially it means if you present your car as a street entry and go quicker than an 18, you will be moved to club. However, if your car is entered as a club car and you break 18, you will be moved to open or pro, which ever is appropriate.

The club is trying to protect the true street driven cars against potential class domination from 'super cars'.

Who are the tuner sponsors this year?
If you enter under a tuner entry does that get you a shed or do you still have to pay for a shed?

Please make sure that your fire extinguisher is compliant...rules have changed.

See thread here:
viewtopic.php?f=73&t=14192
At today's modern regularity event, about half the field presented non compliant extinguishers. The Stewards gave special dispensation to run under the 2011 regulations for that event - but don't bet on them doing this again.

On the tyre list for street is denotes:

UTQG rating higher than 120

Which tyres fit this bill on the tyre list?

Google advises ad080, federal 595s, what others can ppl recommend that have good feedback at a surface/track like mallala?

Speak to mr povey. SA Motorsport tyres. I believe the hankook rs3's fit the bill.

the federals have about the lowest treadwear rating of that list at 140 (KU36s and AD08s are 180 for example), however you can't really compare treadwear ratings "that" closely as they vary between companies, just the same as profiles and widths do.

RS3 are 140 also! I used the RS3 at Eastern Creek last year and was pleasantly surprised of their grip and wear, with a good window of heat hold prior to loosing their edge. After a full track day they still had the 'Hankook' and 'Flame' details in the tread! So as a high performance daily drive tyre most could likely get 10,000kms out of a set - or a full Time Attack season! :D
