NASA Prototype Series Profile
The NASA Prototype series consists of two individual championships, the Atlantic Series Championship and the Pacific Series Championship. Each Championship includes ten points races held over five event weekends. The premier series race will be the NASA National Championship at Circuit of the Americas.
Series Points System:
The series uses the standard NASA CCR point system to calculate series champions with four points being
awarded for each pole position earned and the lowest points finish for any given two races during the season excluded
from the final calculations. This means participants will be permitted to “drop” their two lowest race finishes during
the series. This may include any race that is missed. However, disqualifications for compliance are not eligible to be dropped.
Series contenders may also elect to participate in any of the Atlantic or Pacific Series Championship races.
Series Race Format:
• Standing: Standing starts will comply with NASA’s CCR procedures.
• Flying: Rolling or flying starts will have their own wave/green flag, set by a predetermined method.
Race Group(s): NASA will endeavor to provide the NASA prototype series with its own race group whenever
possible. However, series participants should expect multi-class race groups until series numbers grow to a level
where NP01 specific race groups are feasible.
