The Production Saloon grade is designed as a budget class and competitors are expected to respect the spirit of these regulations. A minimum of 200 must have been produced by the manufacturer. Any saloon car (sedan, hatchback or liftback) manufactured with seating for at least four occupants is elligible, but is restricted to front or rear wheel drive, right hand drive models only.
Engine must be the same as originally fitted to make, model and year of manufacture, fitted in it’s original position. However, they may be no more than 6 cylinder or twin rotors - no turbochargers or superchargers.
Gearbox must be the same make of car being used, i.e. Ford car - Ford gearbox, mounted to the engine block with OEM bell housing and must bolt into original position.
Cars are to be kept in a tidy condition and appearance at all meetings.
Productions are cheap to build and run, and I believe it is a good class to start out in. I would encourage anyone to have a go, or come and talk to us in the pits during the night, we are all approachable. The Production crews all help each other out if someone breaks down during the night. Your crew will often be helping out another team and vice versa or there will be tool sharing going on.
Gender is not an issue in the Productions class, with all drivers treated equally. When you’re on the track you’re not thinking about whether the driver you’re trying to overtake is male or female.
