Andy, thank you for your response, however I am finding this process difficult given I am not getting a response from Paul to my email. At this point I an having the inspection done by my shop because the car is in for service anyway. I guess if there is no response I will be struck doing the inspection twice.
Provided you use our UCR DE Inspection Form (downloadable from our website) and your shop is a facility licensed in whatever Province/State you reside in, there should be no problem. Ultimately, the responsibility for bringing a safe, reliable vehicle to the DE event is yours and yours alone. If anybody at the track questions this, refer them to me.
I just noticed the Fire Extinguisher conversation and there is a small discrepancy.
Our rules state that your Fire Extinguisher must be a 2.5 lb bottle with metal to metal mount.
The cute little can that Porsche has come up with does not meet our standards for track safety and will not pass Tech.
Yes, this is still true.
The reasoning behind this- yes, we do actually think about such matters 🙂 – is that for somebody that has not yet decided if the DE Programme is right for them, this saves the cost of purchasing and installing the Fire Extinguisher for what may only be one weekend. However, since most people are ‘hooked’ after the first day, you are likely only postponing the inevitable cost.
No such allowance is made for Safety Helmets or DE Safety inspections though.
