I had a long c Nveration with them in contingency about this question. And the short answer is yes.How is that thing a 5 car? Did they just throw all the rules out the window? Did "5" just become a short WB beam car open class?
Never saw any 5 opens through RM80
was that the only 5 car enterd? A lot of car to not make 80 milesI was driving a chase truck up from Urupan to Lagrimas at RM58-ish to get our 8 truck out and saw them coming down from the access to RM70 through the vineyard with one of their chase guys towing the car. I didn't ask them what happened but they all looked ok, just very dirty and tired.So how'd they do?
Why? Because it had a beam? I have never seen a Bug Convertible, type 3, even a 914 with so many straight edges and square corners. If this is the way the class is going, then make the rules say it. Otherwise, this was just an old class 6 silhouette class car from the 1980s.In person, I felt it definitely looked like a 5U Baja bug.
Ah. Bummer. That was a hell of a PR campaign.
