Rules for 2023...

Happy new year belatedly to everyone.

I am still building 4022 up from scratch so I kept an eye out for changes to App K and peculiar requests from race organisers. Obviously, most of what I am about to note therefore concerns Europe rather than the US, Canada, Australia etc.

One particular organiser seems to be very keen to police Lotus Elans, Shelby derived replicas, E-types, Mustang, TVR and 901 Porsches rather than rely on App K and HTP papers.

On the link below there are "clarifications" of App K, but also translation mistakes, and non homologated requests to try to cull the number of Elans through expensive modifications (magnesium parts are outlawed for example):


This organiser is not alone in seeking to impose expensive, cumbersome rev limiters.

In the past I do know that Peter Auto would only accept "genuine" 26Rs, my Elan S1 built to gts regs would not be accepted. Cannot say if this is still the case though.
