Hi,

Im hoping to enter SLS next year, that is assuming the blue book of regs doesn't make my brain melt first! So far I've worked out im probably allowed a car but after that it gets a bit heavy.

Anyway, went to watch SLS at the weekend and loved it, despite the weathers best efforts. . .

Plan is to get some track time in over this year, work out if my modified road car ( GT4 ST205) can be used in SLS or if I should start again with another one.

Hopefully ill make it to the next couple rounds to spectate and pick up a better idea of what goes on.

Hello and welcome Smile

Basic rule of thumb is if the car is running a stripped out interior it will need a cage (see blue book for cage specifics based on engine CC etc).

Its a fairly accessible entry point to motorsport and the paddock is friendly Very Happy Have a nosey round at the next meeting and chat to the competitors and scrutes Smile

Hello little old lady!


Thanks for advice AK, as far as I can tell if I do anything that takes the car away from showroom spec suspension or engine wise then I have to comply with s12 rules, cage and harnesses mandatory? It would be ideal to chat with anyone taking part if I can get down in july - I bet trying to find someone who isn't busy is the tricky bit!

thats pretty much it... you can change susp but mounting will need to remain the same, i.e no spherical bearing type top mounts if they were rubber bush from the factory.
