Model 3 SCCA Solo Classification


May 9, 2017

I was going through the latest draft of the 2018 SCCA Solo rules (Sports Car Club of America) just in case there was a remote possibility that they had classified the Model 3 already. Of course they hadn’t so it leads me to wonder what would be an acceptable stock class for it.

Roadster (All) – SS
Model S (2012-2014) – FS
No other classifications for 2015+ Model S

Considering a 2017 F30 BMW 330i is in DS would that be a proper fit for the Model 3?

NOC (not otherwise classified) rules can’t be applied since they only deal with combustion power units.

I guess it should also be mentioned (from Tesla’s warranty limitations): "<something> <something> <something>…. or in competition, racing or autocross or for any other purposes for which the vehicle is not designed;"

I will guess they will put it in FS for a season then adjust it. FS has become the catchall for heavy cars. The Model 3LR is still over 3800lb.
But it will mostly likely be quicker a Model S.
Last time I ran an AutoX when a Model S was there, it did not fair well in FS.
