Notice for NASA Racers with Impact Racing Products

Published on May 06, 2010 13:44

The national office received the following from Impact Racing Products:

PASS TECH INSPECTION!! GET YOUR DATE OF MANUFACTURE FORMS - CALL IMPACT TODAY.
Attention Racers:

In regards to our current situation with SFI, we understand that some racers may have trouble passing tech inspections with Impact Racing safety equipment. To remedy this inconvenience, Impact Racing can provide you with a Date of Manufacture Verification form for products purchased in 2009 and 2010 only. If you call the Impact Racing office at 317-852-3067 you can obtain this form from any one of our sales associates. You will have to provide a proof of purchase. Please check with your sanctioning body to see if this form will allow you to pass tech and race at your event. Any racers with products purchased prior to 2009 can call Impact to order new product at a discounted rate.

Effective immediately, NASA is requiring those drivers that own Impact Racing suits to bring their purchase receipt as well as the letter from Impact Racing to the track events and present them to the local inspector. “We hate to see any additional hassle for our drivers, but we realized that in order to get a letter from Impact, you will need to have a receipt anyway. Therefore, we feel that asking them to bring the receipt and the letter is not too much to ask,” commented Executive Director, Jerry Kunzman.

More information regarding the SFI decertification of Impact products can be found elsewhere on this page.


SFI Certification Requirements

Published on April 24, 2010 13:07

There has been a recent SFI decertification of some of Impact Racing’s safety gear. While the NASA management sympathizes with any driver that is affected, we need to remind those drivers that we cannot allow the use of safety equipment not meeting our current listed rules found in the Club Codes and Regulations. Those drivers owning Impact Safety equipment should read the other press releases pertaining to this subject, found on this web page. Those concerned about the possibility of owning decertified equipment should contact Impact Racing immediately.

SFI update on Impact Racing decertification

Published on April 22, 2010 12:45

SFI has issued the following press release. Please review this carefully:
  1. Impact Racing has withdrawn its appeal of the decertifications of its products bearing SFI 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 specifications manufactured in the years 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008. The decertifications of these products are now permanent.

  2. The decertifications are based upon a number of the affected products being non- compliant with SFI specifications concerning labeling and construction. In addition to the presence of non-compliant SFI tags and the absence of DOMs on products, 3.2A/5 suits made prior to 2009 have been constructed with non-compliant materials that, in SFI’s judgment, pose a safety risk to users of these suits.

  3. Impact Racing is permitted to maintain the certification for products bearing SFI 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 specifications manufactured in 2009 and 2010. SFI’s investigation of the labeling and construction of these products is ongoing. Impact’s participation in the SFI specification programs ends June 22, 2010.

  4. Any Impact product with SFI specifications 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 without a date of manufacture (DOM) is deemed to be a decertified product unless the manufacturer has provided the product user with proof that it was manufactured in 2009 or 2010. This proof must be presented to track officials upon request. Impact believes that its products made in 2009 and 2010 have the DOMs affixed to products to the extent mandated by SFI specifications.

The decertification of the production years prior to 2009 and 2010 remains in effect. The parties will continue to work cooperatively in an effort to resolve the issues relating to decertification in these years.
  4. Impact Racing stands behind the safety of all products it has manufactured and to which SFI Conformance Labels have been affixed. SFI will continue to monitor compliance with product specifications.
  5. Impact Racing, LLC and SFI Foundation, Inc., will cooperate in determining whether any Impact Racing product bears a counterfeit SFI Conformance Label and if any safety issue exists in regard to products manufactured in years prior to 2009 and 2010.
  6. If any Impact Racing product does not bear the date of manufacture the purchaser or user is instructed to immediately contact Impact Racing who will provide verification of the date of manufacture.

The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is pleased to announce the introduction of an exciting new Spec class featuring the sporty yet affordable Daewoo Lanos.

Noted Daewoo tuner Tong Kumong added that “People always think that the Lanos is such a raging [expletive]box but true hardcore enthusiasts will recognize that this car is loaded with potential.. A lot of people say you can’t polish turds, but in this case you sure can make a Lanos sparkle with the right parts and enough rubbing.”

The class will be limited to the 1997-2002 Lanos and the spec parts will be delivered by NASA using its clandestine fleet of black helicopters after drivers swear a blood oath of loyalty to the class.

Videos of NASA’s testing of the new spec package can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVvzZLtXds&feature=related and rules can be found here.


SFI decertifies all Impact Racing products

Published on March 26, 2010 15:03

SFI Foundation, Inc., has issued a Notice of Decertification; Notice of Cease and Desist, and a notice terminating all Contracts of Participation to Impact Racing. Effective April 27, 2010, all products manufactured and/or distributed by Impact Racing pursuant to SFI Specification Programs 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 are decertified. Evidence obtained by SFI shows that over a period of years Impact Racing has engaged in the production and use of counterfeit SFI conformance labels and patches, and affixed them to Impact products for use in motorsports. Under the Contracts of Participation between SFI and Impact, SFI conformance labels and patches may only be obtained from SFI and no other source. Evidence shows that Impact had counterfeit SFI labels and patches made in Asia and then affixed them to Impact products it distributed to members of the racing community. To SFI’s knowledge, Impact never advised its customers that its products contained phony SFI labels and patches. Impact never advised SFI of its systematic and longstanding practice of counterfeiting and distributing SFI patches and labeling.
