I'm glad we cleared that up.
Yeah....it's unfortunate it needed to be cleared up since I stated it correctly in this thread as did Matt. I'm sure the other 3 drivers in the car (who read the forum, but don't post) don't really appreciate their integrity being questioned. I might understand how the internet works and have thick skin - doesn't mean they do.....

Even if we had to officially put them in 2 classes we could still compare raw time runs. Do we actually have more than 4 people who want to do this? If we do, then we may have to have kind of a "Round Robbin" tournament style competition over a few different days. If we rent a car, it is unlikely to contain a "no race" clause. You have to declare each driver for driving on the road but this would not be required for something in a parking lot.
There's nothing in the rules that says you can't run a rental car. There's also nothing that says you can. The club or CACC could still say no to avoid any unwanted attention if things go bad. Same argument I made before - the club is aware it's happening, the club is allowing it to happen, details of it are being posted on the club website..... turns into the club being liable. Common sense says it's a bad idea. Personally I will continue to argue in favor of what's best for the club and racing in general. I'm not interested in taking unnecessary risks for the benefit of a small group. The greater good as they say

Of course there will be a no-race clause. Rental car contracts are littered with fine print. A quick google search turns this up from the Avis website - I'm sure the contracts are pretty standardized throughout the industry. #4 for those too lazy to read. So basically whoever puts their name on the contract better be ready to buy the car. Talk about fine print - it actually says you can only drive on paved roads
