Run one of these in Super Touring.

The big question mark still remaining with the exciting new Exocet kit car was where it could race. Now, the National Auto Sport Association has answered that question. The Exocet is approved to use “Production” vehicle status in NASA’s Super Touring classes for 2014 onwards. The Exocet can be run in ST1, ST2, or ST3 depending on power levels.

Super Touring 1 (ST1) = “Adjusted Wt/Hp Ratio” equal to, or greater than, 5.50:1
Super Touring 2 (ST2) = “Adjusted Wt/Hp Ratio” equal to, or greater than, 8.00:1
Super Touring 3 (ST3) = “Adjusted Wt/Hp Ratio” equal to, or greater than, 9.00:1

7.5 Non-Production Vehicles Approved for “Production” Vehicle Status
The following vehicles are approved to use “Production” vehicle status in Super Touring, provided that the frame/chassis, body/aero remain in the original manufactured configuration as specified by the manufacturer. Both the “Non-Production Vehicle” Modification Factor and the “Production Vehicle Body Type” Modification Factors will not be assessed, but the vehicle specific Modification Factor listed below for each model will apply:

With Modification Factor Models:
Exomotive Exocet (no aero/wing/splitter) = -0.2 (ST1 & ST2), and = -0.4 (ST3)

This is great news and we have reports of a few owners already planning to campaign their Exocets in the 2014 season. See more on Page 9 of the NASA Super Touring Rules.
