I noticed there was some discussion about adding a motorsport section to the forum, where people can share their racing knowledge, results, car setups and technical information with others.

This is a poll to see how much support there is for the idea.

just put a disclaimer on top along the lines that the modifications discussed in this section may render your vehicle unroadworthy and that any road racing stories will be deleted.

or something along those lines. This should protect the redlineforum in case somone decides to weld up the diff, remove CAT, fit side existing exhaust, fit slicks, fit harness remove seatbelts, fit lexan windows and assume this is all road legit cause he read it on redline. ;)

I think this is a great idea! I think it would be helpful for people like myself who are getting started in things like track days, hill climbing etc (plus a bit of brag session for those who hit the QM :wink: ).

Hope this gets up! [-o<

Hi I am new to the forum but I did post on cruise and events the idea of forming a cams affiliated Suzuki GTI Car Club. It read as the following.

"Hi every one, I dont know if there is a cams affiliated Suzuki Car Club but I used to belong to 2 car clubs, The Morris 850 Club and The Nissan Car Club. The great thing about cams car clubs is the driver training and vehicle awareness along with all the great friendships that evolve. I have been watching this forum for a while and it seems likely that I would not be the first one interested in motor sport. Any how, any comments.

Regards, George"
