Hmmm...ok...maybe a total expenditure limit. Or let their purses and advertising ability set the limit.
I guess maybe class racing would work, but I would want an unlimited class.

that would defeat the purpose of a M3 cup if no E30 has a chance of winning wouldnt it...

Youd have to make some kind of stipulation to keep the power to weights close.

E30-195.220hp/2800lbs = 14.3/12.7 lbs/hp

E36-240.282.316hp/3200lbs = 13.3/11.3/10.1 lbs/hp

E46-330.360hp/3400lbs = 10.3/9.4 lbs/hp

E92-420hp/3700lbs = 8.8 lbs/hp

fukit, spice it up, make it a M cup. Allow M5s, and M6s...
no boosted motors allowed. any engine swap as long as its a M motor...
So u wanna stuff a V10 in a E30, fine, but make sure u dont go over the power to weight bracket, or u will run with lead ballast.

i think 10lbs/hp is a nice limit...M5s and M6s should be able to make that too with some work.
No nos, no boost, no race fuel, no aftermarket ECUs. Only M motor swaps allowed, but must use ECU from donor car.
No aftermarket brake calipers, no active suspension.

i think it would work pretty well.
