HPDE Tech Inspection

Please print and fill out a tech form prior to arriving to tech http://www.nasaproracing.com/images/rules-forms/form_hpde_tech.pdf


TT Annual Tech Inspection

TT cars can go through the normal HPDE tech line but need to fill out the annual tech form (not the HPDE form) and bring their log book. http://www.nasaproracing.com/forms/annual_race_tech.pdf


TT Classing

All competitors classing sheets will be publicly posted here http://www.nasaaz.com/category/competition-classing/ (classing sheets & dynos near the bottom of each respective page). If your respective series classing rules for 2015 were not published with at least 30 days notice (Example: Honda Challenge), those specific series/classes will still be able to compete under the 2014 rules and/or 2014 classing sheets. All current classing sheets (and dyno if applicable) for TT needs to be posted on the website (links below) or turned in onsite before the first competition session to avoid being up-classed. The preference is to submit classing sheets to Jeff Abrams jeff@mazdamaniac.com so he can update prior to arriving onsite.


The most current rules can always be found here https://www.nasaproracing.com/rules

Transponder Rentals

• Need to be checked out at registration

Drivers Meetings / Downloads

The mandatory drivers meeting for all drivers (HPDE, TT) will be held at Driver Info. All group breakout meetings and download locations will be announced by your respective Group Leader directly after the morning drivers meeting.

• Loves gas station just on the other side of I-10 has all grades of fuel including 100 unleaded and 110 leaded race fuel.


Spotter by Racer Caster

With this event being a night event, NASA AZ has decided what better time to begin the use of a new notification system being used by NASA NorCal already as well as the NASA National Championships.


Spotter by Racer Caster is mobile app that while on track allows you to see current flagging conditions in both the global and local scenarios. While off track, the Spotter app has an announcement screen that is also the home screen which is used by officials to publish any notifications needed.


NASA AZ will not rely on Spotter as its primary notification source. Flaggers will still be present and they will still be responsible for displaying all flags that Spotter can display as well as several flags which Spotter cannot display.


The Spotter application is available for Android and Apple devices:





A few important notes about Spotter:

a] Spotter is very battery consuming. It is highly recommended that you have a car charger or other power source available while using the application.

b] It is recommended by the developer that the app be kept in the home screen when not on track to minimize data usage.

c] Windshield or dash mount provides the safest use while on track.



Below are some examples of what spotter looks like and how it works.


Home Screen This screen is where you will see whether you are connected to the closest event, the location of that event, and any announcements that are posted. Additionally, at the bottom is where you launch the on track screen.







Green Flag






Track Condition = Green, Local Yellow @ Turn 2 The local yellow will flash for a waving yellow, or just come on solid for a standing yellow. The number in the box represents which turn number you may encounter the yellow.






Doulbe Yellow w/ Emergency Flag The emergency flag is placed in the upper corner and a bit smaller than other flags.
