Way back when I was in College in the early 90s a friend of mine and I were into ProRally and we would go and work the events. And there was a couple of engineers who ran a Saab Turbo. What was common then (Maybe still is) was to stay on the throttle to keep the boost up and left foot brake as that is how they steer the front drive rally cars. And a couple of the classes back then you could do all sorts of things. So they had a button on the shifter connected to a solenoid that operated the clutch which was usefull since it was a synchro gearbox.

VW Beetle Auto stick does that.
Many current sport c ars do the flat shift thing . I suppose that the Mega squirt cars could use that option . Load cell on the shifter with a rev limiter engaged . I have all the stuff to do my car .

Maybe the rule should say, 3 pedals , no electrics.
