2 Litre Wheel Drive - Unders & Overs

Since the 2 Litre rear wheel drive specification was issued for our meeting on the Sunday of the Saloon Stock Car World Championship weekend, we have received plenty of enquiries from drivers who have something in stock that was listed as not permitted to race at the meeting.  This news has been welcomed by drivers with a rusty Sierra or Marina and the bad news for those drivers with something larger is that we are not changing our minds.  The meeting will still be run to the original specification.  Drivers with slightly less common cars not listed in either column of the original specification are still invited to enquire whether that car can be raced or not – and we will add any extras to the list so that everybody can see exactly what’s going on.

 

However, we don’t get voted as Banger promoter of the year without listening to drivers and so we have decided that our third formula for the Sunday is going to be – 2 Litre Rear Wheel Drive Bangers in the upper section of the ORCi National Banger middle weight range (with some exceptions).  That’s right, two classes of 2 Litre rear wheel drive Bangers that will be run completely separately from start to finish on the day.  The upper class is intended for those cars which were occasionally used in Unlimited Bangers but were either never really much good or no longer any good in the current era.  So cars still routinely used in Unlimited Bangers are still excluded.

 

The underlying rules on which this class is based are as follows:

 

·        All cars to be pre 1990 models

·        All cars must have had an engine option of 2 litre or less in the UK market

·        2 Litre engines with 6 cylinders will be permitted in this class if original to the car

·        16 or 24 valve engines will only be permitted if original to the car

·        Engine swaps must use the Ford pinto or crossflow engine range or Volvo 8 valve

 

As with the smaller class, we present below a table of the more commonly encountered cars that will or won’t be allowed.  Drivers with anything else that they think may be suitable should check with the promotion on 01553 771111 or trackstar@norfolkarena.co.uk
