I was at the ROAR Nationals at Speedworld.

So, who’s going to run 1/10th GTP modified at the NORRCA Nationals in Vegas?

Default What Killed the 1/10th Pan Class?

I used to race 1/10th pan cars in the Modified class until I had to give up racing back in '92. I'm finally back after all these years, only to find that the TC classes pretty much dominate everything else.

I can see the attraction to the touring cars, especially given the variety of bodies available for them, but what really killed the pan car class? I've heard in some circles that it was because of the motor and battery wars, but PLEASE! If that was the case, Oval would have been dead long ago!

Your right that oval and even TC would be dead with the motor and battery wars.

We have been seem 10th and more in 1/12th pan car are making a small come back.

What we need to do is ever one with a 10th and 12th bring them out. Dust them off and get some lap on the track to show off the cars.

If ever one who still have them dose it. You see more people picking up the cars. I seen a lot of people when we race the cars say what is it. Or better yet when they out there with Mod TC and you betting them with 10th with a stock motor they seam to be very interested in the cars.

We just have to show how much fun the can be. That why you see the class grow again.

It would help if the variety of bodies were still available! Two of my favorite "classic" bodies are no longer produced... First, there was the Legendary Bolink Porshe 962. Next came the Protoform Nissan P35. Luckily, I still have one of each untrimmed and unpainted, but once they're gone, they're gone.

I would guess that my only choice left would be either Andy's (haven't seen Andy's list of available bodies lately), or Hot Bodies. I think the only 1/10th pan body still made by Protoform is the Peugeot 905. I ran that body a long time ago when I was sponsored by Protoform (in the pre Pro-line days). It wasn't bad, but the Nissan was much better.

Two Associated bodies that were decent were the Chevy Intrepid, and the Jaguar XJ-10, although I don't think those are made anymore.

What body(s) are you guys using?

Protoform still makes the P35. It's the one most of us use at SoCal. Proline/Protoform's website sucks.

The key to bringing Pan Car back is to simply get out and run it. Two years ago, when myself and a couple other guys started running them again at SoCal Raceway, we struggled along with 4-6 entries. But, people saw us running them, realized that they are faster than Sedan and cheaper. We're nowhere near as big as Sedan, but in the last 30 weeks, we've have fewer than 12 entries just three times and we're still growing.
