Amalgamations. Where event entry is small, suggested amalgamations are shown below:-

Class Suspension Type Wheelbase Range Applicability
1 & 6 Leaf Up to 84″ 80 only.
2 & 7 Leaf Over 84 to 90″ 86, 88, Lightweight.
3 & 8 Leaf Over 90″ 101, 107, 109, 110.
9 Coil Up to 84″ 80 only.
4 & 10 Coil Over 84 to 95″ 86, 88, Lightweight, 90.
5 & 11 Coil / air Over 95″ Range Rover, Discovery, Freelander, 101, 107, 109, 110.

This reduces 11 classes to 6 in a practical and fair way.  Amalgamation depends upon how many of each class turn up at the event, but the six classes above would be close to the norm at small-club level.
