    Hi, have just been scrolling through the entry list....some amazing stuff in there. Can someone tell me please what the difference is between class Nb and Nc.......Obviously they are saloons, but with different modifications. Is one similar to our schedule K class, or is it based on year of manufacture? Maybe one of them is similar to what oldfart was proposing to run here in NZ, ie fairly standard cars with very limited modifications. Thanks.

    Its based on date Gerald.

    Group Na is for Historic Touring Cars built prior to December 31 1957.
    Group Nb is for Historic Touring Cars built prior to December 31 1964.
    Group Nc is for Historic Touring Cars built between January 1 1965 and December 31 1972.

    Also, with Group Nc, only cars that competed in an Australian Touring Car Championship race or Improved Production race prior to December 31 1972 are eligible. Thats why you see 1969 Mustangs racing in Group Nc, but not 1970 Mustangs. Nobody raced a 1970 Mustang in an ATCC race prior to that date.

    That is a surprising omission, seeing as the Mini and the Anglia ruled the roost here for a long time. There are quite a few Cooper 'S' entries. I think back to last year when Steve Pauling came up from ChCh with his Anglia for the Chris Amon FoS. It looked so standard....almost as though Auntie Pat had just stepped out of it.....but it went like stink. Whats up with Australia??

    Gerald Maate,

    If it aint got a "Made in Australia" sticker on it, its not fair dinkum. Mini just qualifies (as long as it has wind up windows).

    In NSW, I haven't seen an Anglia in Historic Touring Cars since Chris Dubois swapped his Nb Anglia for an Nc Escort.
    There are a couple of Hillman Imps and Austin A35's to keep us entertained though.

    Howard, are you 'fair dinkum' about the wind up windows? If so I will have to cancel my entry!!!!!

    I thought they'd all been given roof chops and fitted with Lotus motors?

    Even in the 60s the Anglia was a rare site on Aussie race tracks. I can only think of one example that raced in the ATCC, Roy Sawyers 998 which ran the 1961 race.

    In Aus they became sports sedans than they vanished

    Sure thing Rod, most in Nb/Nc probably don't realize that there is now a class for them to race with in NZ!!!

    Have Fun
