First Draft of the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship Rules!



8. Rules/Procedures

8.1 Dynamometer Certification

All MPTCC participants must obtain a certified dynamometer test prior to the start of the race.  Note that one certification can be valid for an entire season provided that no modifications are performed to the car.  All power to weight ratio certifications must be performed by obtaining a certified wheel horsepower figure. All competitors will be required to include the latest Dyno certification in their vehicle logbook at all times which shall include a power graph and peak horsepower.

Forced induction cars must be dyno tested in 4th gear and have a boost trace on their certified dyno charts.  MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship or Redline Time Attack officials may at any time place a data logger on board any forced induction car to monitor boost under track conditions.  Any boost levels exceeding the certified dyno trace by 10% will be penalized with the driver being disqualified for that event.  Electronic boost controllers may be used but will be subject to sealing by MPTCC officials once the correct boost level is set.

After receiving dyno certification, it is recommended that MPTCC drivers post their minimum weight in 2” numbers on the driver’s side of their windshield to assist with impound inspections.

MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship vehicles (both TU and TO) are subject to visual inspection by any Redline Time Attack Technical Inspector or MPTCC competitor at any time when the car is at the track or at prearranged mutually agreed upon times when the car is not at the track. The spirit of this rule is to allow competitors to self-police the series.

At random times or at the discretion of the MPTCC Directors, any car may be ordered to report for rules compliance on the chassis dynamometer. All official MPTCC dynamometer tests will be open. All MPTCC competitors have the option to be present for official chassis dynamometer testing.

Prior to the chassis dynamometer inspection the competitor may top off any fluids needed to ensure the engine and drivetrain are not damaged during testing. The fluids must be added with a Redline Time Attack Technical Inspector present and no other modifications or adjustments may be made to the car.

The chassis dynamometer operator and the Series Director will determine the chassis dynamometer testing procedures and how many test runs will be performed for any given car being tested in order to obtain accurate test data. To ensure fairness a MPTCC or Redline Time Attack official should operate all cars being inspected on the chassis dynamometer.

Any car exceeding the maximum power to weight ratio for their declared class shall be penalized in accordance with Redline Time Attack rules.

Dynamometer tests must be conducted on a (TBA Dyno) in a commercial facility that offers Dynamometer testing as part of their business and is open to the public.

In the advent of a protest, if a trackside dyno is not available, the hood and ECU data ports shall be sealed by MPTCC officials and the car be re-dynoed with an official present to witness the integrity of the seals.  Forced Induction vehicles can be ordered to carry a data logger to record boost levels at all times.

8.1.1 Dynamometer Compliance

A competitor who does not posses a valid Dyno certification will not be allowed to compete.

8.2 Weight Certification

All weight measurements must be done with Redline Time Attack approved weight scales or with specific approval from the Series Director.
