USGT rules with a 17.5 for the outdoor. It's a pretty big class locally.

WGT outdoors ?

Seems like F1 would be a far more relevant class

and no 1/12 stock or Superstock ?

Talk about a complete failure on ROARs part again to understand the trends in Onroad. F1 would have been better then WGT for sure on aspalt. Are they limiting classes and considering what choices they offer because of regional participation? I am trying to wrap my head around the logic.BTW GT10 is the wrong choice if they are already running a 17.5 sedan class. USGT specs would have been better.

Roar typically doesn't make the class decisions, that is usually the track's decision.

The track made it's recommendations and then ROAR said, no, this is what you will run.

Regarding GT10 it is what is most popular for the area. Most people that already run it would not be interested in having to get a 21.5t to run.
17.5t=Racers
GT10=Guys who have fun racing scale looking cars

Also for guys worried about Spec sauce,
1. I don't know how you police it
2. Probably not needed as most anything works about the same, differences are usually how your car feels the first couple laps.
3. I would support it if they implemented it.

I suppose since it's a class that ROAR figures will be predominantly locals and not many out of town guys will travel for, they chose the GT10 power option?

Everyone should already know better than to understand or make sensible logic from a roar decision.... Same things every year.
