Post by RoyBoy302 » Tue May 12, 2020 3:16 pm

If this is Logged 3E for Prod Touring , then it would surely be IPRA eligible as well ????

Yes / No ????

That would be a "no" Roy (unsurprisingly it fails the height over the rear seat dimension test). Like IP, PT has a number of cars that run but aren't strictly eligible, in this case it doesn't qualify as a Touring Car. But it has gone through the processes of being requested to be approved, been measured, PT has passed this onto MA and MA has approved the inclusion. Much the same process as we go through to get a vehicle added to the approved list. Which if you want to run one in IP is what you would have to do.

Bureaucracy much? How about rule change in IP? If it's run in Prod Touring it allowed it allowed in IP. Or does MA like people jumping through hoops

I don't know about you but I'm not a fan of Utes, Lotuses or Porsches being allowed in IP.

3E is a class for production cars.
Although it is a category 3, it is not specifically a touring car class.

IPRA is specifically a touring car class.

I believe that NSW runs a production touring class, which is just a subset of the full category which is 3E.

What this means for your question is that just because a car ran in 3E, it is not automatically compliant as an IPRA car.
