    you will have a decent enough spec, tho i very much doubt they will all pat you on the back for having nos...
    the good thing is you dont have to run a full season, its very much as and when you can

    ps your sig, 13.89 perhaps and not 15.89?

      There are classes for just about any type of car. Yours would probably end up in the modified production car class which means mandatory roll cage and harness and most of the competition with non-roadgoing cars on slicks. Nos isn't allowed. As a minimum you will need:
      Proban overalls
      Crash helmet (most bike helmets don't have the right safety approvals)
      Competition licence
      Membership of organising motor club
      Timing strut for your car

      This lot will cost at least £150. Entry fees are normally £40 - £80 depending on the event.

            timing strut is a small bit of plastic stuck on the front of the car to cut the timing beam at the start
            we do em in carbon, batch to be done fairly soon too
            you should really get out and drive then see what you would like to improve on

              You shouldn't need to do anything specific other than making sure the car will get through scrutineering so read the MSA blue book that comes with your license thoroughly- this has all the technical/safety requirements.
              To be realistic your'e going to struggle against the fastest cars but don't let that put you off as there is usually quite a wide variety of cars and driver abilities.
              If you can get into one of the roadgoing classes the competition generally won't be quite as stiff but doeas mean you need to have all seats and interior trim fitted and tyre types/sizes are quite restricted.
