I think I may have to do that power upgrade sooner rather than later

I love torment. Bring it! 😃

I can set the rpm limit to your maximum rwhp so its a clean fight but I also have a weight advantage unless I actually stop eating between now and November.

What power will you have? Will you have the same torque as me too? 2.2L with a CT26 = lots of torque down low.
Will your power to weight ratio be better than mine when I have 300kW at the wheels?
This will be an interesting battle!

I'm not 100% on power. Anything from 300-390kw@ 7500rpm at the flywheel but will not know exact figures until its dyno tuned. Weight will be just on 1000kg with 20 litres of fuel so it will be similar PTW. We still have a few variations with suspension and geometry plus I have a brake advantage! Its looking a little better in the cabin but the outside is still the same. I expect it will be a little louder than the L4 Turbo engines.

This event is three months out but there seems to be very little info one what's happening, who is entered, etc. 
Are there any updates on what is going on? 
For my seat I have a few updates. I am working most nights and weekends of up to 30 hours a week to get the car prepared for a battle with Admin. This includes numerous mods and variations to satisfy competing in November and future Endurance races.
I have been talking with another competitor from WTAC who is keen on having a battle with Glenn and me in Circuit Class (is it still circuit class?). He is almost 100% on coming along. Think MR2 Spyder widebody and you would be on the right track. 
I have a thought for the hillclimb which I have sent to Peter but no response as yet. I have attached the concept to see what people think out it. for me, it makes a lot more sense than the one which was run last year for a few reasons. One being a longer run, using the part of the Tarmac stage which was well received at MTC, the other being improved staging for the return to the staging lanes means less time waiting for small groups to ferry back to the staging area as you could return the entire field in one movement. 
Its also good to see the Short Circuit is returning in 2017 based on the discussion with Peter. Unfortunately the ripple strips have blocked the entry to the CAMS hillclimb so that cannot be run until there are changes to the track which will not happen under current management. 
I am also able to bring bbq/marque/tables from MTC for the benefit of WPC in 2017. 
Will the cruise and photo session be on in 2017? The first year of MTC with photo's of people driving the circuit without helmets (at 60kmh) were great shots. Be good to see this return in 2017.

It'll be great to see the short circuit return. I'm still trying to get funds together atm. With Nationals only a few weeks prior it's pretty tough....

Thats what Peter said so hopefully there are no hiccups. I would also like to see that layout I loaded up being used as its in the right direction in every way in comparison. If I wasn't forced out of MTC and the track had blocked the entry point to the Hillclimb, this would have been there last year. Will just have to wait and see.

There has been a lot of banter of facebook about the challengers this year. No mention of a giant killing little yellow SW20 though, surely Adrian will be in the mix now he has adjusted to the power??

Yes I did see that but no entry list as yet. I was trying to register via the email option on the entry form but wasn't working on my laptop so will try another way later tonight

I sent through a entry a few days ago. No confirmation as yet. Can someone confirm if my entry was received?

Any cut off date for this event or just until it fills up? Couldn't see it on the website.

The sooner the better to help with programming, room allocations, etc
Capped at 50. Any over 50 will be on a reserve list if someone has to cancel for whatever reason. First 30 paid get pit lane garages.
