Ok, I registered.....Owwwwww.

 

I liked the $25/day karting rates, better.

 

I guess I am with the big dogs, now. I better lift my leg a little higher....

 

First race...ever. You guys be nice and waive as you go by! I'll be the one with the bright orange license plate....(mandatory, i guess)

 

Next, they will make me put an "X" on my helmet....again/

 

Two questions: 1) I have no stickers on my car besides the Nasa numbers. Am I required to have anything else? and where do I get them?

 

2) I noticed that there is a new belt rule... 2 years. How can I tell when my belts where manufactured??

Yeah, Fontana is a newer, world class venue. You'll love the track and forget all about the cost to help rent it.

The decals required are TOYO TIRES on all 4 sides. I have those in black, white, red (usually). Free.

NASA Pro-racing decals on all 4 sides, too. $1.00 each. I have a few or you can buy them at the events. You need them to pass tech. You also need a $5.00 NASA patch for your suit as part of tech inspection. You can buy this at the event.

The series sponsors would like you to display their decals too. AUTOBAHN, PARAGON PRODUCTS, SSF IMPORTED AUTO PARTS. I have those with me.

 

Your belts will have date tags on them. 1 on the anti-sub belt, 1 on the lap belts, 1 on the shoulder belts. If you need belts now, the good stuff is the G-Force systems. These have the softer, easier to use Nylon webbing, and the Sparco-type cam lock. They also have FIA tags which carries them beyond the 2 year SFI dating system. Try to keep your belts clean and out of the sun.

Does anybody have garages rented or do we want to park together where we did last year, by the fuel station?

My Belts have the tag, but no markings..... Is the month/year usually marked with a marker? punched out? I also do not have any of those decals, nor do I have the patch. Can I get/buy those from you on Sat, Tim?

 

Also, some of the parking spots opposing the garage have block posts with AC outlets... I would like to be near power if possible (need to run my curling iron and waffle maker) other than that I will go wherever...

 

Thanks!!

Sometimes the punch is very light or they don't remember to do it. Look closely.

My last post answered your other q's.

Sorry Tim,

I did not notice that up there...

 

Me is not a name you know!

 

Paul is bringing his ITR and does not have 944 yet. I figure he can still hang with us.

 

I plan on getting there about mid day friday. If anyone is going to be there Friday AM then they should try to reserve the space. Maybe I can send out a list of trucks and trailer so who ever holds the space knows how to much to hold for use Az guys!

Please plan on getting your annual inspections done on Friday also. I can perform this for you.

Please go through your driving gear and make sure it's all there and in good shape. Bring your yellow NASA logbooks.

Glen Uslan is dropping my car off on Friday. For those of you that will be there if you could be on the look out for him I'd appreciate it. Dylan and I spoke about it tonight. I will drive out Friday night and drop my trailer off (spending the night in La Quinta)

Probably can. You will need to contact then over the phone. It won't be half price however. It would be more than 1/2 price.

 

NASA Az does have 1 day registrations, but the two days are less than double as it sort of a "volume" discount. I would expect 1 day to be more than 1/2
