Are there going to be any women competing in the 2012 IIC? I looked at the results from 2011 IIC and I didn't see any women's names.

I think possibly the year before or 2010 had a couple.....if your a racer it shouldn't matter what gender you are, the race is a lot of fun and brings a large number of Euro racers that we normally never see race.

I recall hearing at least one woman competing, she wasn't fast but it was asserted to the racers at my local track that she was female. We unanmously denounced the guy telling the story as a liar and braggart.

There was one woman competing in World GT in 2010. I was at the ROAR Carpet Nationals this year and I met one other woman competing there too.

So... why no VTA at IIC? The US VTA rules are rock solid and on-road clubs all around the world are racing VTA (i.e. Australia, Brazil, Philippines and 14 cities across USA).
It's too bad that VTA is not a class at the IIC. I have seen many new racers come into the hobby because of VTA. Out of all the classes in the ROAR Carpet Nationals, VTA was hands-down the most enjoyable class to watch. The realistic looking cars with drivers and authentic paint/numbers makes it so cool to watch.

They need to confirm payment for those that have signed up. Once that is done you should start to see names appear on the site. Sorry, I don't have a time frame.
