NWR SCCA will be offering Annual Tech for Solo II SCCA events for 2017.
Important Note: Annual Tech appointments at NWR-SCCA events will be limited. I encourage you to take advantage of the chance to get an inspection prior to SCCA #1 if possible.
The first chance for NWR SCCA Solo Annual Tech inspections will be on Sunday the 19th in Renton at the Taco Time corporate office (3300 Maple Valley Hwy Renton, WA 98058). Appointments will be available from 10 AM to 1 PM (before noon if possible) scheduled about every 10 minutes. Annual Tech will be run in the building's parking lot. We'll have cones out if the area we're in isn't obvious when you pull up. If you are interested in Annual Tech and are eligible (see section A below) please email Charles when you'd like to be scheduled between 10 and 1.
We will be collecting a $5 tech fee to cover the cost of the tech stickers.
Annual Tech will be offered at the following NWR-SCCA Events this year:
Solo #1 4/9 at BMP
Regional Pro Solo #1 5/6 in Packwood
Solo #2 5/7 in Packwood (limited availability)

NWR SCCA co-Chiefs of Tech 2017
This means you get your car teched once during a special, thorough inspection and you do not have to be re-teched at SCCA events for the rest of the season. However, there are some limits, not everyone is eligible for the Annual Tech program. Tech is intended as a safety check for vehicles and we want to make sure that the people participating in the Annual Tech program have demonstrated the ability to adequately prepare their cars for competition. Not in upgrades, but in tight lug nuts and empty trunks. The following minimum standards shall be maintained for program eligibility:
a. All SCCA members who have attended at least 5 Northwest Region SCCA events in two of the last three years, and state their intention to do so in the following year are eligible. Experienced competitors who do not meet this requirement may request a waiver from the Chief of Tech.
b. Cars that experience an on course mechanical failure or have been modified since inspection must be re-inspected and re-certified.
c. Vehicle must be judged (at Annual Tech) to generally be in good mechanical condition.
d. The car entrant must have read and be familiar with sections 3.3.3, safety inspection, and 3.7 Vehicle Identification. Purchasing a rule book is no longer required for Annual Tech.
e. The vehicle must be presented for annual inspection in the same condition it will compete, including class letters and numbers in FULL COMPLIANCE with section 3.7 of the SCCA Solo Rules. This includes race tires mounted on the car. You must bring a jack and a lug wrench with you to annual tech.
f. In Addition, the Chief of Tech, Event Chair, Chief of Safety, or Solo RE may require a competitor, on demand, to present a vehicle for a re-inspection, if there is reason to believe that the vehicle is not in compliance with 3.3.3. Vehicles with annual tech stickers may occasionally be spot checked in grid.
