News from the WISSOTA Banquet:
I’m sure by now most have seen or heard about the Annual WISSOTA Meeting and the changes that came from it. By and large most of the changes to existing classes were expected. Namely the crate motors passing as well as what are being called the Concept Engines. Concept engines are essentially a way for engine builders to provide an engine comparable in price and performance to the crate engines. Four barrel carburetors, after market components, an RPM limit and so forth. For more details check out the WISSOTA Website (click here).
The unexpected change was the addition of the Hornets and the Pure Stocks to WISSOTA’s list of classes. The classes are 100% optional as far as tracks like us adopting the rules, and we are exercising our option to not sanction them. To be clear – our bombers are not going to be WISSOTA sanctioned. The WISSOTA class allows shorter wheelbases, no restrictor plates, less stringent roll cage and safety rules, things that we are not open to compromise on. Again, more information will be posted to the WISSOTA website with more details.
