IMSA released a long awaited rules bulletin today regarding powerplant options and tunnels eligibility in the L2 class of IMSA Lites. The document announces the spec engine and outlines the option of using either a flat or tunneled West floor. Both of these floors are now homologated for the series. The tunneled floor must be fitted with approved blocking plates for competition in IMSA Lites. Ben Odenborg, Managing Director for West, said, "We're glad to have a formal ruling on this topic. These revised rules will allow West competitors to remain hyper-competitive in both IMSA and SCCA with minimal car preparation effort in transitioning between the two sanctioning bodies." Mark White of Accumoto Motorsport added, "This announcement should ease the pain in the decision making process for anyone contemplating taking the step from the club to the pro series. The L2 class is now far and away the best deal in professional motorsport. It offers a precision instrument that will be of significant value in two sanctioning bodies, allowing a potential competitor to become involved without the risk of owning a car that may be immediately depreciated due to it's series specific configuration."
Entry forms and additional information for IMSA Lites are currently available on the sanctioning bodies website www.imsaracing.net.
