17th Annual Event at Thunderhill
Thunderhill is putting on an excellent event for the 17th year in a row. As North America’s longest, closed-course endurance race, the National Auto Sport Association is hosting two races this year: the 12-hour WERC will run at the same time as the 25-hour race.
- Important Administrative Rules
- Vehicle Requirements
Thunderhill has restrictive entry rules that must be followed in order to remain eligible. Entry into the east track from November 18-December 3 is not allowed; any crewmember or driver that enters that gate will be ineligible. Registration will open at noon on Friday, December 6, and close at 8 p.m. that evening. Any team failing to pick up their registration before the evening deadline will be excluded. Racers can pre-register until November 20.
Proper neck gear and headgear are required for participation, and must carry an FIA 8858-2002 or higher certification. Minors need written consent from the event director to be in the pitlane at any time during the weekend. And if a driver intends on racing a vintage car, it must meet modern safety equipment requirements.
During the weekend, teams must equip the car with all four NASA decals while the car is in use on the track. Decals from other sanctioning bodies are prohibited. The numbers on the vehicles must be unique and cannot be more than two digits. Finally, the cars must be equipped with at least one working headlight, brake light, and taillight.
A complete list of rules and regulations for drivers and teams can be found on the NASA website.
