Thinking about going to this event and I have a couple questions if somebody can help.

1) my car currently has R-A signage, will NASA make me remove it and replace with theirs?

2) Cost of memberships/licenses to enter this event?

I am wanting to bring my wife as co-driver to show her what rally is all about, but I live 6-7 hours away and don't want to spend tons of $ on new licenses or hassle with new #'s/signage.

Thanks for your help.

Heres for #2, cut and pasted from the Manistee website...



Both driver and co-driver will need to hold NASA memberships to participate in this event. If you do not have one go to the NASA web site and sign up there or show up and we'll have NASA people available for you. The fee for NASA membership is $ 40.00.


Both participants will be required to have a current
NASA competitors license. If you do not have a license, you can either go to the NASA web site and sign up there or show up and we'll have NASA people available for you. The fee for a NASA license is $ 50.00.


Car must comply with the rules set forth by NASA.
Driver apparel must comply with the rules set forth by NASA.

So it looks like $90.00 for the licensing.

I think the website is out of date.

This will be an excellent beginner rally or a chance to dust off the old rally car. Remember NASA Rally Sport accepts existing legal SCCA or Rally America cars. If you have not entered a NASA Rally Sport event this year there will be no license required but a $40 NASA Rally Sport membership is required. There will be no course notes available, just a route book.

I would be surprised if a person was forced to buy a NASA ID kit for a single event, especially a rallysprint.

Are co-drivers even required?

Correction: There is no NASA ID kit to buy. This is the simplest and
the cheapest way to outfit your car for an event:

You are required to present your car at NASA scrutineering with
a white door panel 20 by 20 inches. That is your ONLY COST.
You have to remove or neatly mask all identifications of other
sanctioning bodies. Isn't it simple?

The rest is provided by the organizer: Start numbers, event identification and series identification.

Hi Bryan,

Read the info for the ist time (this year) entries; you will only have to buy the NASA memebership.

As far as the door panel, Ivan has it right; just cover the R-A number backer and identification. We do it with a sheet of white vinyl; usually, we just apply a neat border of duct tape around the edges of the white vinyl sheet to hold it down, so that we don't have to remove the adhesive backing cover and not have to actally stick to the underlying number backer. You can remove it neatly and not damage the R-A backer.

Hope you can make it!

EDIT: PS: OBTW don't scare your wife!

Bryan,

1. No!
2. Membership $40

Yes, this is a great way of getting into the sport.

Ben,

I have asked the web master to change the lanuage on membership and license. Only the membership is required unless you have already run a NASA Rally Sport event this year. Just like the old first time free program.

Guys,

Per Article 2.1.2 of the NASA Rally Sport GRRS multiply drivers can run a single car. As for co-drives, I don't know of any reason why you couldn't run without a co-driver. Since I'm the Clerk on this event I'll get back to you on that one.
