I'll just take all the weight out of the car, and see if we can get some more ponies somwhere - short of about 4kw at athis stage (doubt we'll get it though) So ...

No not as such. This is the standings in the overall championship. Class B is generally the most hotly contested class, as that is the class with the most entries.
