Check the COM website for rules and results: COM Sports Car Club Home Page

In the results (say 2007) on my SSC class we had BMW 318, Miata, Mazda 3, VW Golf, and the like. SSC is Showroom Stock. Basically the car is all stock. You are allowed a minor offset for wheels (ex: I have cromodoras), competition shocks that fit original struts (ex: I have yellow Konis), I can use any brake pads and fluids and tires can be competition tires provided theyh are DOT approved (ex: I have a set of Toyos RA-1 and NITTO-01 and will probably get Hancook this year as they are getting to be faster than Hoosiers).
If you have things that are modified in your Alfa then it starts bumping class.
Even urethane bushings will technically alter handling and performance will casue you to bump class.
Hope this helps.
Tech inspection pre-event is rigorous in the interest of safety. During the event is pretty much on a freindly basis and one can lodge a protest if they suspect you are out of a class. The club is there to help and we run this on a nice and friendly basis.
