Classic Saloons

Our Classic Saloon Car class evolved out of what was originally our American Muscle Car championship. We decided to create a class with greater variety, capturing the essence of the classic era of saloon car racing, where big V8 muscle cars raced against smaller, more nimble machinery. Furthermore, we also wanted to enable the possibility of running scratch-built cars or kit conversions. Consequently, club members have a far greater selection of potential racecars to choose from.
