Info comes from NASCC.ab.ca any race dates, entry fees and whatever will most likely make it there at some point. If you want the most up-to-date information, meetings are 1st and 3rd Wednesday each month Show up at 7:30 to 11512 158 Street.

1) that happens at your first tech inspection.

2) No dates yet, as far as I know. Planning for road racing typically starts as soon as ice racing is finished in March. Entry fee is typically 300-500 for the weekend.

3) Race school is usually held in mid-late May. Last I heard there was some question whether this would be at Castrol or Namao.

The first race will be held the Sunday of the race school weekend. Does your car currently have a dash bar as part of the roll cage? I can't remember from when you showed it to me. It's something that is required my the wcma but not by cars.

Dot Rcomps can be used in IT2 so those v710s would be all good, but an engine swap can not.

your civic would be ST-U thx to the b16a.

the stock dash bar isn't legal. It needs to be welded in place.

You don't need to get your car down to a set weight. You are allowed to get it down to that but not less then that =)

Just a FYI I don't think there is any way to get a EK down to that kind to weight without replacing pretty much the whole car with aluminium and carbon fiber.

I thought that you were allowed engine swaps in IT2 as long as they were from the same manufacturer. I am pretty sure you could also argue that the EK did come with a stock b16.

The b16 will fit in IT2 as long as it complies with weight and is completely stock for that model. No internals. Stock intake manifold and throttle body. Engine must be same from correct generation to fall under updating backdating rules. Also you must have shop manuals to prove the engine came in that make and model somewhere in the world.
IT2 is a great place to start.
I would be interested in seeing how your cage is tied to stock dash bar. I suggest you consult with Uve Terner at a NASCC meeting. Bring him the car and or pics he can point you in the right direction or address any questions to techcomitte@wcma.
