NASA Prototype Series Profile
The NASA Prototype series consists of three individual championships, the North Atlantic Series Championship, the South Atlantic Series Championship and the Pacific Series Championship. Each Championship includes twelve points races held over six event weekends. The premier series races will be the NASA Eastern States Championship at Sebring International Raceway where three of the nine series races will take place and the NASA Western States Championship at Thunderhill Raceway.
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 two Atlantic or Pacific Series Championships.
Competitors who do, are eligible to substitute up to two race finishes from the opposing series championship in
place of their “home” series championship. Meaning, a driver that misses two races in either series championship
can make up those races by choosing to compete at an event in the opposing series championship. Points will
also remain in the area where they have been scored.
The final round(s) of the Championship will be Sunday’s main race at the respective NASA Championship event. That race will count as double points.
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.
