    Question:

    I have a car that I am going to enter in SPO for a few races this year. I just got the car prepared for an SCCA school that is coming up.

    My question is does the car need to have the seat re-enforcement bar to be tech legal etc.? The one that goes behind the seat to keep it from going back during an impact. I am getting conflicting reports.

    Thanks.

    To run SPO, the car must be prepared to GT safety specs (not IT specs). In regards to your specific question, the driver's seat must be braced from the rear.

    Probably not what you wanted to hear, but this came up when folks wanted to start an ITE class in SEDIV last year and "other" folks started reading the GCR more closely.

    Butch:

    Who/where can I get my car pre-tech for the school?

    My car was prepared at Robinson, so I will call them to check on the seat brace. They hopefully have already squared away.
    BTW going to run a couple of Solo 1 events this year also.
    Thanks.

    Just found out from Gary D'Abate that Atlanta Region will be having an annual tech session at OPM Motorsports (new location) on Saturday, Feb. 3. I will be at Daytona, but you can get further information, including directions to OPM's new shops, from Gary at 706-219-4455 (between 6 and 9 PM EST).

    I've posted directions in the SEDIV category...
