Ariel Nomad
« on: December 31, 2019, 09:30:16 am »
Hello,

Just wondering what class the Ariel Nomad would belong in, 6, 7 or 8?

https://www.arielmotor.co.uk/nomad/overview/

I believe it does have a limited slip diff, so perhaps not class 6 but as a production car thus it should be class 7 which states “b) Rear engine Production cars fitted with torque biasing differentials as original equipment.”

Much appreciated.
Jen

Class 8 - They don't make enough of them to qualify as a production car.

Similar one already being used in ACTC events.

Tyre size restriction applies.  :)
