Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

Mark The HSA classes are scored independent of the class the car is run on the day, but - our championship regs were passed back to us last year when they went to approval, because we had classes the had multiple categories. We had to do some work to appease the MSA, which was very galling to see at...

Stuart, i better get polishing the trailer :D :D Peter K. With the new categories from the MSA it is getting more difficult to do this. With a standard road car you can compete without any extra safety gear, but if you modify the car to take it out of the roadgoing class, i.e. fit perspex windows, r...

Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

Right, due to some rule changes by the MSA the imp classes have had to change for 2010 in the H.S.A. Speed Championship. The main change being that we are unable to run class P anymore. The MSA have stipulated all classes must only have cars from one category (i.e. production cars, racing cars etc)...
