Most NO PREP events have the Steel Roof & Rear Quarters Rule...


But... A lot of these same events allow Corvettes as well as other "well known" cars that are said to be composite bodies(I won't mention any names). Anyone know the reasoning for this, or why it's allowed?



I'm guessing name notoriety and crowd draw(money).



If so, that's pretty unfair to your Average Joe. It's already hard enough for regular folk to compete with the Big Boys without them having extra advantages. Plus... it's bullshit lol.


Thanks

I'm pretty sure the steel roof and quarters was to show that the car actually started out as a production vehicle and not built from scratch.
Probably not that much of a weight savings in a fiberglass vrs steel production car since it is just the roof and quarters.

So vettes came with glass bodies. so obviously they they get a slide on the steel rule. But what stops them from having a carbon fiber body now?

Pretty simple rule
If it came from the factory with steel, gotta still be steel
if it came from the factory with carbon, gotta be carbon.

why do you think theres a huge influx in heads up racing of corvettes?

As far as someone cheating with carbon on a steel car, they check for it, and they've yet to be caught.

Sums things up pretty well. A few have been busted for non-stock appearance. Kayla had to do some surgery on her car to get to race.
