Default Need PCA rule for wing overhang

Can anyone tell me if there is a PCA rule that states how much if any overhang a wing can have over the back of the car? Does the wing need to be flush with the furthest part of the body, or is there some wiggle room?
Any advice is appreciated.

Last time I read the rules, I think a 6" overhang is allowed beyond the bumper.

I read the rules a bit different...my understanding is that you can't exceed width of the body at all and can't exceed original body length by more than 1 inch. I believe the 6" measurement in the rules book pertains to height. The rules are a bit confusing (IMHO).

I'm guessing the original poster is asking in reference to a 951. There aren't a lot of options for these cars that I've seen. I do know the LeMans wing from GT Racing is OK (I have one on my car now) and also have an extra one in my garage that I'm going to sell.

For stock and prepared classes, the rule states "Spoilers and bumpers / air dams are free providing they do not exceed maximum factory body width by any amount, maximum factory body length by 1", or maximum spoiler height by more than 6." Prepared can run a higher wing, equal to the factory non extended 968 turbo s or turbo rs wing.

For GT and GTP classes, "No rear spoiler or wing may be higher than 4' 10" from the ground, or extend more than 6" beyond the rear bumper."

I think the rules are pretty clear.

Thanks everyone.
This would be for a GT class. So "4' 10" from the ground, or extend more than 6" beyond the rear bumper."
This is the information I needed.
