Notes:

* 2009 saw several new classes introduced. Mono1000 and 1400 was introduced, replacing 1200 Standard and Free and allowed the Suzuki Hayabusa engine to be used.

[1] 2000 Formula was run as a separate class in 2009, but this was merged with Mono2000 for 2010.

[2] In 2007, all Mono 2000 cars which were eligible for the forthcoming 2000 Classic Class competed for the Classic Cup, it was not a separate class in its own right until 2008.

[3] Mono ZTEC was a class for Formula Ford Zetecs to be run in standard FF Zetec guise. Tyres were free, but everything else was as per standard FFZ regs. It was split from Mono1800 for 2013, but only attracted one new car, all other competitors were already racing within Mono1800. The classes were re-amalgamated for 2014.

[4] The Tiedeman Trophy was run as a series in 2013, and will run as an end of season mini-championship from 2014. The 2013 trophy was awarded to Jim as he took class win and fastest lap in all four races, but won the trophy on the tie breaker of being a member of the largest average class. Chris Dittmann and Jason Timms also matched Jim's results but their classes had, on average, fewer competitors.

[5] Mono DTEC was introduced in 2014 as a separate class for cars complying with Formula Ford Duratec regulations. Tyres were free, but everything else was as per Formula Ford Duratec regulations.   Poor uptake meant it was merged into Mono1800 for 2016.  The cars are still run as 'spec' cars but within the Mono1800 regulations.

**2016 saw a number of other adjustments to the class structure.     The 2000cc cars, formerly split over two classes were split into 3.   Mono F3, Mono2000 and Mono2000 Classic.   Mono F3 was effectively a rebranding of Mono2000, with that name being used for a new class to house the rapid F4 / US FF2000 cars that had recently dominated 2000 Classic, but some of the older F3 cars that were too new to fall into Classic.

MotoMono was split into two following the domination of bike engined ex-F3 cars, usually Dallaras.  Mono1400 was for carbon tubbed cars of up to 1400cc capacity and any space framed cars that wanted to run larger capacity bike engines.   Moto1000 was for spaceframed cars such as the popular Jedi or Speads family cars up to 1000cc capacity.  Carbon tubs were not permitted in Moto1000.

[6] 2017 sees the launch of FR2000 - a class for the Tatuus built Formula Renault car used in the UK for many years, best known for the semi-professional Formula Renault BARC series.

The class structure of any racing championship is built to promote close and fair racing against cars of similar specifications and speeds without forcing competitors into purchasing the latest specification chassis or engine, as the end result is too often"he who has the biggest chequebook wins".    The rules allow competitors to develop cars within limits; that being an aspect of Monoposto that has been part of its ethos since creation, and still allows competitors to compete in something they have designed and built themselves.   Occasionally classes are created to encourage cars that have for various external factors find themselves with nowhere else to race, a place to race with Monoposto.    The board monitors entries, looks at trends and the performance of cars, and adjusts the regulations and class structure accordingly.    The board recognises that despite best intentions, some classes have not taken off, resulting in some classes being merged.   To the best of knowledge, no car that was eligible, has been turned away following class mergers.
