The following is a list of general rules for the Winter Challenge at MSR Houston. The goal of the Winter Challenge is to provide a fun and entertaining outlet for winter racing. Please help us continue this goal by following these rules:
All drivers must hold a valid Novice, Regional or National license with a sanctioned racing body (SCCA, NASA, etc). If you don't, please contact Sydney at 281-369-0677 for more information.
Cars must be built to Spec Miata specs (either NASA or SCCA, depending on which class you register for) or SCCA Spec Racer Ford specs. This includes running the tires specified for competition (in SM, NASA=Toyo & SCCA=Hoosier). Vintage cars must be 25 years or older, and will be classed according to MSR Houston Vintage Classing standards of big-bore, small-bore, and wings and things.
Drivers must provide an current MSR Houston Tech Form as well as their current SCCA, NASA, HSR, etc logbook. Cars are required to be under a current, valid annual tech inspection stamp. To schedule an annual inspection in advance, please contact Sydney at 281-369-0677.
Cars will be issued a Challenge-long tech sticker upon review of logbook. This sticker must be present at all events to go on track. If for some reason you decide to change cars mid-series, please bring your logbook in for a new sticker.
Each round schedule will be posted one week before the event. Groups will be combined accordingly to maximize track time for everyone. If you don't pre-register, groups may be dropped for lack of participation.
Drivers will be held to a gentlemanly standard. Aggressive behavior and excessive off-course excursions will result in penalties and or expuslsion. We're here to have fun, not take Juan Pablo Montoya's ride in NASCAR.
