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!
