OK, which rulebook should I be looking at for International Rally New York at the end of September? Common sense would dictate that I should be reading the NASA rulebook but will there be supplementals for USRC/USAC/ESRC?

I'm already R/A Production GT legal (just finished Maine Forest Rally) and can run as an R/A logbooked car but I need to figure out my class and licensing requirements for International Rally New York.

Your senses serve you well young Jedi...

>but will there be supplementals for USRC/USAC/ESRC?

USRC is the "National/Pro" championship, and ESRC is the "Regional/Club" championship for those of us to the right of that big river with a lot of "i's" and "s's" in its name ;-) All of them fall under the NASA Rally Sport "2005 General Regulations for Rallies."

Any supplements or updates would be posted [a href="http://nasarallysport.com/bulletins.php"]HERE[/a], though there's only been one posted so far this year (01/09/50 about window nets).

>I need to figure out my class

Super Stock (Super Stock 2)

>and licensing requirements

Since you will now have a RA license :) :) you'll just need to join NASA, and (as long as you have a valid RA or CARS license) you can run one event on them (w/o having to get a full blown NASA Rally license).

You might want to post over at the [a href="http://www.nasaforums.com/viewforum.php?f=41"]Rally Sport part of the NASA forums[/a] to be sure what I said is correct :+

NASA operates almost like RA in terms of inviting cars logbooked from other sanctioning bodies. As long as your car is PGT legal and you keep the RA rules on hand, it will be legal in NASA. It will be put in the closest NASA class to RA's PGT. You will probably be in SS2 since your adjusted displacement is over 2650CC.

This is the text of the NASA rule:

3.3 Vehicles Prepared to Technical Regulations of Other Sanctioning Bodies
Vehicles prepared to Federation Internationale de L?Automobile (FIA), Canadian Association of
Rally Sport (C.A.R.S.), Rally America (R/A) or Federación de Automovilismo Deportivo (F.A.M.D.)
technical regulations will be allowed to compete in NASA Rally Sport Events.
3.3.1 Documentation
Vehicles competing under alternate technical regulations must bring printed copies of
those regulations, in their entirety, to the vehicle?s technical inspection.
3.3.2 Compliance
Vehicles competing under alternate technical regulations must completely comply with all
of these regulations including restrictor sizes, minimum weights, required safety
equipment and all vehicle preparation rules.

Thanks all! Yup, I already found the rule in the rulebook about competing with a car logbooked and classed in another series. My main issue was licensing and making sure I was in Super Stock 2.

Regarding the multipliers (and I assume this applies to hillclimb as well) how do I do the math? For a 2.2 motor with AWD (1.3) and 4 valves per cylinder (1.2) is it:

A=2.2

(A * 1.3 * 1.2) = 3.432

or

A + ((A * 1.3) - A) + ((A * 1.2) - A) = 3.3

Either way I know I'm in Super Stock 2 but I'm just curious.

Your first instinct is correct. There's never been any addition involved in any part of the "engine multiplier" math.

Cheers,
Anders
