Impound

The following is in regard to rule 7.3.1.6 and other areas of reference as it pertains to Time Trials(TT), Performance Touring (PT), and Super Touring (ST) competition.

  • 7.3.1.6 reads as follows:
    • From the start of competition through the end of the post-competition inspection, vehicles may not have any adjustments or modifications made to systems that could alter the chassis dynamometer readings by changing horsepower levels (without the direct approval of the TT Director). Any hardware the allows a competitor or crew member to wirelessly or directly connect to the ECU (or alter ECU maps) at any time during competition or post-competition is strictly prohibited, regardless of whether such hardware is external or internal to the ECU, and regardless of the direction of data flow.
  • Purpose:
    • We are amending this section as our team feels it become prohibitive at a regional level competition to truly enforce compliance for all cars.
    • This supplement listed below will applies to all TT, PT & ST cars.
    • Violation of the Region Rules will result in disqualification of the car for the session in question.
  • The Region Rules amend 7.3.1.6 as follows:
    • All data ports that transmit data to an external source must be taped with tamper-proof tape during competition. Your Series Director or their designee will provide the tape and supervise installation as needed.
    • If you need to break the tape for any reason you must contact your Series Director/Designee before doing so.
    • You will be provided with a cell phone number to call and your Series Director/Designee to quickly explain your reason for doing so.
    • Your Series Director/Designee will get to you ASAP to provide new tamper tape and re-sealing.
