SCCA Includes Super Touring® Lite in National Club Racing Program

TOPEKA, Kan. – Sports Car Club of America’s Board of Directors approved the addition of the previously Regional-only Super Touring® Lite (STL) class to National competition in 2012. STL will be included as a separate class for events during the season and then participate within the Super Touring® Under (STU) class at the National Championship Runoffs®.

Super Touring Lite represents a significant group of cars not currently able to compete in the SafeRacer SCCA National Racing Series. The class features cars less than two liters in displacement with permitted engine swaps, aerodynamic components such as wings and splitters, brake upgrades and aftermarket suspension components riding on DOT-approved tires.

For 2012, STL will run in each National race, grouped with STU but counted separately as any other National-level class. Drivers qualifying for the National Championship Runoffs in STL will be invited to compete in STU with their STL cars.

The intention is for STL to have its own National Championship race in 2013, in conjunction with planned class realignment in the Super Touring, Touring and Showroom Stock categories.

The SafeRacer National Racing Series, as well as the BFGoodrich Tires Super Tour, begins January 6-8 at Sebring International Raceway.
