Everything You Wanted to Know About NASA's Super Touring Racing Series
If you’re looking to race in a series that lets you build the car the way you like, then Super Touring could be for you. With an open rules structure, Super Touring/Super Unlimited gives you the freedom to build the car you like using the parts you choose. The amazing part of Super Touring/Super Unlimited is how close the racing is despite the open nature of the rules set. With classes from the no-holds-barred Super Unlimited to the more sedate Super Touring 5 and Super Touring 6 classes, you are sure to find a suitable place in which to race.
NASA ST/SU provides a venue for spirited on-track competition in high-performance racecars of all makes, models and types. Several key factors are considered in classing vehicles, using an “Adjusted Weight/Power Ratio” as the ultimate equalizer between vehicles. The relatively few modification-specific rules will allow competitors to configure their cars to perform at an optimal level by using aftermarket parts, providing an opportunity for promotional exposure for the competitors’ sponsors, aftermarket tuners, parts manufacturers, and the vehicle manufacturers. Additionally, these series should provide a stage to showcase driving talent, in hopes that the most talented drivers will advance to even higher-level professional series. The format of the rules encourages direct crossover from both high-level NASA TT classes and race classes from multiple organizations.
