In looking at the current book, it appears the line making rocker arms etc illegal has been omitted during a recent re-write of that section. Although it is still clear in the GT2/3/L section..... Im sure this thread will lead to CRB letters where we clear that up.

As to the engine location, the intent is to allow the hypethetical situation where a guy buys a corvette, puts a roll cage in it, and a fuel cell, and races it. Hence the allowance of original OEM engine location. It is not intended to mean you can choose between the traditional spark plug at axle centerline OR the OEM location. It is very poorly represented in the current GCR version so it looks like we'll have to clarify that a bit.

I briefly looked at the car at VIR and talked to one of the crew. Although I didn't crawl under the car, it looked to me like the transmission was moved all the way to the rear and connected directly to the diff. The crew member also described the rear suspension as "semi-independent". I saw a-arms in the rear and a pushrod arrangement with shocks mounted atop the fuel cell area. I'd be amazed if the car was GT-1 legal. Interesting that it turned up at a Majors race.
