Default Next Time Around...

I enjoy following this one. I'd like to run a couple newbie clunkers in this zoomfest if the stars align for a 2012-2013 season. I'm wondering if anyone knows whether the Revel-o-gram NSU TT is eligible? I'm not sure about the details on the NSUs that originally ran in the Trans Am series.

From the results I could find, looks like NSU 1000 and TTS (no displacement listed - could be the same car, or a 1200TTS or a 1300TTS) raced in the Trans Am from 1967 to 1970. Seing as the 1000, 1200 and 1300 in base, TT and TTS versions all used the same body and that the Revell model looks like that body (based on a 1300TT I believe), I'd say you're good to go (better get official verification tho' from nhdungeonracer).

Default Nsu

According to the History of the Under 2.5 web page: http://www.bsedan.com/hist25.html the NSU-1000 (NSU-TTS) and NSU TT1200 were legal!

Keeping in mind that this year is still in progress and there will probably be some downtime before plans for next year are even considered, is it likely that the entry deadline for next year (fingers crossed) will be roughly the same time of year again? Is it possible the series will take a year off?
