Good point. However, hasn't Tom has won a few races outright with mixed
classes (GT1 and 2) running at the same time through the years, despite
this (not this year, I know)? Of course, the bottom line is that there'd
probably have to be a lot more money thrown at the Tigers to win
consistently. Maybe Tom can contact the Rootes factory to see if they'd
be interested in helping out!
