Car Safety

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

Having an annual tech sticker means skipping the normal tech procedure for the rest of the year.

Annual tech can only be granted by the Chief of Tech. You must present a completed copy of the Annual Tech form, show you have a copy of the Solo rulebook, and have been to 8 events in the past year with SFR SCCA.

You can either print the form, fill it out, and find the Chief of Tech at your next event, or you can fill out the form online and present your e-mail receipt to the Chief of Tech.
