Could use a little poster at the track for this.
Ive always wanted to see a separate 2wd class but I guess theres not enough numbers.
I maybe have an extra vintage car to lend out to help the numbers.

It will be no issue. With WORS allowing it, no since making a big deal aobut it for this event ...ROAR's latest motor rules/approvals has included 550 4-pole and 2-pole for the 4x4 SCT Class, a long with the usual 540 sized motors.

Last chance qualy on Sunday with one main.
