I’d love to see you at the GGP. Bob G is hoping for a fall date for 2021.

This year there were only 20 cars due to Covid restrictions. Typically, 35-40.

Assuming it’s a 4-cyl, you would have been in a class by yourself. There were no other 4-cyl modded non-hybrids this year. A Miata ran in the Stock 5 or Less class, coming in at 40.4 mpg. If it’s a six, you again would have been in a class by yourself.

You can still see (on 10-26-2020) last year’s results at Green Grand Prix - Home
That will give you a better idea of a more typical year’s competition field.
And, when registering, you should email the organizer, Bob Gillespie, describing your car. It probably would run as a Modified, but might be if Exhibition. One deciding factor there is tire size. If it doesn’t match the door frame label, odometer distance is assumed not reliable, so I THINK the car is eliminated from the mpg scoring. But you should discuss with Bob - I’ve never been in the Exhibition class.

I’ve known Bob Gillespie since 2010. So if you become serious about entering, I will be glad to email him and give him a heads up. You and I could also discuss by pm here, or regular email.
Coast long and prosper.
