    I think the basics need to be sorted first - sporting regulations and rules, car specs, events (eg no. of races x no. of events)

    Benson, I think anything over 15 would be spectacular but overall you want about 20+ to give everyone a chance to race throughout the field, plus to provide exposure to spectators and sponsors.

    A good start Mr. Riced but I think you have to allow categories to maximise entries so here's my thinking

    Category 1: Dseries 1.5 and 1.6

    Category 2: Bseries 1.6 and 1.8

    Category 3: BSeries 2.0 plus HSeries

    Category 4: KSeries 2-.0/2,4 +

    Each of these four categories will have basic freedoms - intake, exhaust, brakes, but limited engine mods plus suspension mods - rollbars, coilovers, strut bracing

    Basic safety features for everyone along CAMS lines - fuel, rollcage, seat, fire extinguisher, etc

    Control tyre and control fuel.

    That's just my thinking at this point. I need to investigate more with the UK guys, talk to CAMS and AASA, plus talk to the circuit (Wakefield Park)

    Keep the ideas coming guys - it inspires everyone to think that this might be possible if not 2013 then maybe 2014.

    Further to my thoughts about categories ...

    So Category 1 would exclude ED/EF Civics with B swaps

    Category 2 would exclude all models with non-standard engines (that is, EGs with K series swaps)

    The categories would be

    Category 1 - All models using a 1.5 or 1.6 D series engine as standard. No models before 1988.

    Category 2 - All models using a B Series as standard

    Category 3 - Preludes, Accords using H Series (or F Series) as standard

    Category 4 - All K Series models including Accord Euro, Integra R

    Anyone want to have a go at ascribing models to each of these categories?

    As far as the roll cage is concerned it would have to meet current safety specs as prescribed by CAMs so full cage, welded in.

    Control tyre could be any manufacturer (probably invite tenders here and see what comes up)

    Strut bars can be upper & lower, front & back

    Control fuel eg. 98 octane but not E85.

    Suggested rim sizes would be 15in for categories 1 & 2; 17in for categories 3 & 4.

    By standard I mean "Australian delivered" as some might say, for example, that EF came with B16A in Japan.

    I have created a new thread "Honda Challenge Australia". Can we continue the discussion there?
