    Default Does anyone have interest in Running ITEZ in the SE??

    I am trying to bring a few of my crapcan teamates to SCCA and are trying to run the ITEZ class.
    I am going to register for the Daytona race in ITO or EZ depending on other inputs and where the tech guys want us. ( I know... they want us at home.. )
    Please call me if you have interest in ITEZ in the near future.
    Thanks, MM

    Looks like some are running ITO and a few in SPU. Talked to Dana and he said that we have too many classes and no room for another.
    How would we get ITO renamed to ITEZ to better fit the rest of the east coast?
    Or fit IT EZ into ITO.

    CFR has no place to run the Chumpcars that are basically IT cars with parts missing. My car has no rear hatch, thus wont fit ITS, no cell so no SPU, No V8 so not ITO.
    Result is; not running this race.

    Dont bother trying to run any Chumper in CFR that does not fit another class. if the car has a fuel cell they should fit in SPU , but without a cell they have not been allowed.

    The Florida region has been more receptive as has the Atlanta region, with IT level fuel tanks.
    I have 2 teamates that may try to run the SCCA school in their car . weĺl see what happens. Maybe they can just run NASA without the hassle.

    FWIW, we are adding IT-EZ to the Barber Race on Labor Day Weekend. Draft supps look sort of like this:

    Improved Touring – EZ
    The purpose of IT‐EZ is to create a regional class where cars built for ChumpCar or Lemons racing, or for cars that could be ITE legal but do not belong in the fast race group, to have a place to race on an SCCA Regional race weekend. As opposed to any other class of SCCA road racing, IT‐EZ competition is designed as a “fun run” class, without any promise of intent of performance equitability. IT‐EZ is designed to provide a way for drivers to earn an SCCA racing license and race in regional competition, with the absolute lowest cost vehicle. In no way will any waivers be considered or granted in areas regarding safety of vehicle or driver.
    IT‐EZ vehicles may race with prior accident damage, as long as that prior damage does not create a danger to the driver of that vehicle or fellow competitors.
    Non‐functional additions to vehicles, whose primary purpose is to express creativity, theme, are allowed only if do not create a potential safety hazard to the driver or fellow competitors
    IT‐EZ eligible vehicles
    Must be a “mass produced,” gas or diesel powered, four wheel passenger car.
    Minimum weight of 1800 pounds and a maximum weight of 4000 pounds and a production‐based engine.
    Tires must conform to applicable Improved Touring rules, i.e., must be DOT rated tires, and sizes must be consistent with allowable dimensions per the GCR. 190 wear‐dated tires are not mandated, but they may be used if the racer prefers.
    Preparation regarding brakes, suspension, and engine must meet either Chumpcar rules or SCCA Improved Touring rules.

    No cell required in IT.

    good to see, lets run some races and prove to the skeptics that we can be more inclusive without the world coming to an end.
