The state of Spec3 - October 2021


Recommended Posts

Hello all! I figure some folks may browse here and don't read our Facebook discussion group. I wanted to drop some key statistics to track the growth of the class.

2021 has really been a milestone season for Spec3 with record fields and completely unprecedented interest in the class. The cars are faster than ever and just as affordable, but now we also have a lot of momentum. 

We had 15+ different drivers race in Mid Atlantic this year with a per event average of ~10 racers. We also have 3 completely prepped Spec3 cars in HPDE in Mid Atlantic and at least 7 NEW builds in the works for next season on top of that from licensed racers and HPDErs. To sum that up, we are looking at 20+ Spec3s hopefully in mid atlantic next season.

On top of that, we are getting growth in the South East! By my count, we have at least 7 Spec3s built or being built in the South East region with interest showing no signs of stopping. 

What's next? We have folks who are expressing interest in the NorthEast region, Mid South, Great Lakes, Texas, and California. It will be very interesting to see which region is the one to follow Southeast's lead and explode in popularity. 

These are really exciting times for NASA Spec3!
