16v racing in SCCA Valvoline RunOffs? Which Class(es)?

On Christmas Day SpeedTV will play the SCCA Valvoline RunOffs all day and night. Does anyone know in what class or classes a 2.3-16 might have raced? Thanks.

The 190E 2.3 16V isn't classified to run ANY national events!!

There are several here in the south that run the ITS(improved touring) regional class.

The 190E 2.3 8V can run in E-Prod national or regional class.

Thanks M.B. Doc,

I'm disappointed to hear that. What is or was SCCA's logic in not including such a racy model?

few people want to run the 2.3-16 because in comparison to other, more recent, cars, it's just not competetive anymore
