Car Safety Tech

General
Car Safety Tech is not only to keep you and others safe, but it helps us keep our great insurance. You must tech at EVERY event unless you get an annual tech from our Chief of Tech.

Annual Tech
Annual Tech can be granted by the Chief of Tech. You need to show a copy of the rulebook and have been to 12 events in the past year with SFRSCCA. Having annual tech means skipping the normal tech procedure for the rest of the year.

Annual Tech Form: Here. Print it up, find the Chief of Tech at an event, and get that sticker.
