Dorian, if you'd be so kind - would you please fill in your "location" on the profile page of your registration?  That way any of us that reads a post by you will know from where you came.  Address is not necessary -- just your city and state/county will be fine.  Thanks - and welcome to the landracing.com Forum.

Bonjour Dorian;

Le Mans??? My friend whose team won the Le Mans 24 hour race twice just received two speeding tickets in the mail from the French police stating that he was speeding in the district of Le Mans. He was caught twice by an automatic speed camera during a vacation earlier this year. We suggested that since the tickets were from Le Mans, he should have them framed and hung on the wall.  :-)

Dorian, the big track in Italy will host an FIM meet, as best as I know.  There is a link on here to the BUB Trials website, and on that, a link to the FIM rules.  The rules are for road racing bikes, mostly, and in the back there are the ones for bikes.  The partial streamliner regulations are easy to follow and understand and the FIM regulations are in French, too.  We can help if you start a build diary and have some questions.  The premier meet here in the US is the BUB Trials.  It is all bikes.

Howdy,

I'm new to the LSR world after sniffing around the periphery for a few years. 

I'm trying to build up the knowledge about and the funding to run a Turbo Buick at Bonneville in the CPS body class.  Not sure if I'll stick to stock type displacement or try something more exotic to chase a record or what.

I'm always open to learning more about any form of racing.

Thanks,

Dorian, this is what to look for.  This was really hard for me to find the first time I tried.  We race FIM here, too, and this is what I read when I build my bike.

CTX --

I think the class for your Buick would be E/PS  --  E engine size, 184 to 260 inch / Production Supercharged.

In order to be legal for Production Supercharged class the OEM vehicle must have been available with a supercharger. I had a '64 Rivi, no blower - big A 425 engine.

Dan, think V6, 1984 Grand National.... that would be E/PS... or if he shrank it to 3.8 X 2.66 F/PS  or grow it bigger to D/PS

You've nailed it minus it being an 81 so CPS not PS.  My '64 Riviera had a 425 (465 Wildcat) when I bought it but I've swapped it out for a built 256cid Turbo6 based off of an 84 4.1L block.  It's been fighting a leaky transmission and wiring issues so I've not really put much miles on it but I'm sold on the Turbo6.
1981 Regal with a 231, 252, or some form of under 260cid stroker for an E motor. A 2.66in stroke crank out of a 3.0L to get a 181 for a F motor, but does F/CPS exist?  This motor would be custom since the 3.0L used the same bore, pistons, and rods as a 3.8L but a corespondingly shorter deck height, something is going to be aftermarket on the piston or rod front if not both.   No sense chasing the Avanti Kid with a bottom of the range D motor since you can't get bigger than 274cid on an Buick V6 block I'm aware of.

I'm a bit too poor to play with the big boys in PS so I'll need to stick with CPS and a carb.

Still confused - whats new?

A '81 with an engine swap/turbo would run in /CBGC. Production Supercharged and Classic Production Supercharged rules are the same re: OEM engine availabilty. New for 2013 is the F,G,H, I engine classes in the Classic Category.
