Preseason Annual Tech Inspection: How, When & Why

The 2017 race season is fast approaching and it’s time to think about getting your cars ready for the season. Part of getting ready for the season is getting an Annual Tech Inspection for your race car. Here’s detailed information on the inspection process, both preseason annual tech and inspection at events.

As you no doubt know, there are some big incentives to get your Annual Tech done before the season begins:

  • First, the Annual Tech is a way to have another pair of eyes spend some quality time with your car. Annual Tech Inspections look at more items than an event tech and they aren’t as hurried. This results in better safety for you.
  • Second, the Annual Tech allows you to avoid three weekends’ event tech. Just fill out your tech sheet and show your log book (noting the Annual Tech) at the next three races and you can get an event tech sticker without the hassle of an actual event tech. How great is that?

So, get ‘er done. Here’s a link to the tech inspection form which you should fill out and do your self-inspection before presenting the car for inspection.

For your convenience our tech crews will be available to perform Preseason Annual Tech Inspections this spring at various locations along the Front Range. At these upcoming group tech days, our guys will do the Annual Inspection for free.
