Buggy Blast V Classes

Postby GregR » Mon Nov 06, 2006 9:41 am

Been working on the classes for next May's show and with some suggestions that had been made came up with the following. We added 2 buggy classes giving us 4 Manx Type classes, combined Long Body and Manxter, stepped back to just 1 Type 1 and 1 Type 2 class and added a spot for water-cooled VW. Also made the classes by letter instead on number. Hopefully that'll prevent confusion like we had last year. It look like a good thing......

Class A - Authentic Manx sponsored by David Head Open to authentic Meyers Manx. Body must have correct tag and/or documentation from Bruce or Winnie Meyers. Body may be on shortened VW pan or tube chassis.

I like it because it splits the buggies up more than last year. My only question is what is the difference between early and late.

that's exactly what we did as we wanted to spilt up the Manx Types more.
There is swing axle on a pan and swing axle on a tube chassis those are the "early" classifications. Then there is IRS on a pan and IRS on a tube chassis and those are the "late" classifications.
