Northeast GT Rulebook
To best match the twisty, hilly, blind, technical, and/or otherwise tricky tracks in our region, the Northeast GT Cup offers a single, production-car factory power-to-weight based class.  All vehicles must:
1) be prepared for wheel-to-wheel racing, including a roll cage (1.75”x0.120” tubing, smaller diameter or thickness by exception only), fire system, racing seat, harnesses, window net, etc
2) run a street tire (200tw or higher)
3) achieve a factory power-to-weight ratio of 12 to 1
The factory power to weight ratio is based on factory listed HP and torque and otherwise modified based on: tire width, suspension, aero, etc.

This one-page classing spreadsheet calculates the minimum competition weight required to compete in the Northeast GT Cup:
