TT Series Sponsor – Driving Impressions is our NE TT Series Sponsor and will be providing awards for a regional championship. Please support our regional sponsor – they sell driver gear, car stuff, tools and other equipment.
Class Forms – 2016 Class Forms expires this year and cannot be used for 2017. You will be required to turn in hardcopies of your forms to the TT Director at your first event. TT Class Forms will be stored in a hard folder for 2017 and on (no more online folder).
Annual License – Please renew your annual license ASAP so it is on the books and you receive your hard card prior to your first event. If you have a NASA Competition License you can submit this instead.
Dynos – Dynos are valid for 3 years UNLESS YOU ARE RUNNING TT3. A Dyno sheet must be accompanied by the Dyno Cert signed and attested by the Dyno operator and car owner. TT3 drivers – PLEASE read carefully the Average Dyno Horsepower calculations in section 9.2. I am allowing an exception for our first two events for TT3 drivers – on our 3rd event if your class forms or dynos are incorrect you will be bumped to TTU.
Dyno Re-class – All Re-classifications EXPIRED JANUARY 1, 2015. In addition, if your vehicle was re-classed or had a change to its base class or base weight YOU MUST RESUBMIT for a new Dyno Re-class. See section 8.4.2 for information on how to submit. Please cc email@example.com on this request.
Spin On Track Definition – Please make sure you understand this section as the definition of SPIN has been redefined to 80 degrees relative to track direction (almost sideways) or any two FRONT or two REAR wheels off. You are still allowed to drop two wheels on the same side of the car. See section 11 for changes to this rule.

Interested in Running Time Trial?
– New to TT or NASA?: In order to compete in TT you need to have significant NASA defined Open Passing experience. If you are new to NASA we reserve the right to require an evaluation period and may ask you to sign up for HPDE before allowing you to run TT. Please note that many other organizations’ “open passing” and “Time Trail” groups differ in definition and practice and we want to make sure any new to NASA drivers have proper understanding of our rules and procedures so you and all other drivers can compete in a safe environment. If you are considering TT please complete the TT License Application (do not fill in the box at the bottom) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
– Car Numbers: All competition drivers (whether TT or racing) are required to have a unique number. Please check with the current Northeast Race and TT Number Registration list and confirm the number you want is still available. If the number is still available then please request it by filling out the Car Number Request Form. Please note that if you do not do at least one NASA NE event in a year your number will be forfeit unless you contact Timing & Scoring requesting to save the number (i.e. if taking time off or building a new car).
– Tech: ALL DRIVERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN VEHICLE TECH
- Racecars that pass the CCR rules can get an Annual Racecar Logbook and Annual Tech and do not require per Event Tech.
- Non Racecars must do a per Event Tech. This includes stock street cars and cars with aftermarket safety equipment.
- TT Drivers have the option of getting a TT only Tech Logbook and an Annual Tech. Please contact the TT Series Leader. An annual logbook is required if you plan on attending the National Championships.
- Tech Questions?: If you have any questions about your TT car please contact Joe Grande (Chief of HPDE Tech) at (email@example.com). If you have any questions about Tech for a fully prepared racecar then please contact David Deerson (Chief of Race Tech) at (firstname.lastname@example.org). Tech will usually be open at least an hour before the first on track session. Please refer to the event schedule for actual times.
