    YEP!

    Sounds like a good parkway project for the winter. Easy build. Late beetle + good stock engine + big tires + some other dumb stuff = class 11

     

    I’m get the impression of class 11 is to drive as hard as you can, and carry as much speed as possible. Probably going to take a few races to get a good memory/result.

    We’re going to need a pit crew too. And support rig/rigs. And a food guy. And extra parts.

    There are 4? different races in the score circuit. The smaller 250 races are earlier in the year. Maybe shoot for a visit camp-out this year, get some registration in order, and try to race next year. I think its probably more exciting to do the entire series.

    Zack’s 69 herbie bug is out back. It has title issues…and gave its engine to the 66 project. I think it would make a good class 11 car to build.

    All it needs is a bunch of parts taken off, 7.00 x 15 tires, and a 1600cc to be class 11
