ChampCar Tech Desk

The tech desk is used to ask technical questions and is not to be used as a post race tech line or to phish for how others built their cars. Please reference the BCCR as most questions submitted to the TechDesk can be answered by reading the BCCR. You can download the BCCR here: https://champcar.org/web/rules.php
VPI requests require the year, make, model, trim level, engine size, engine HP, Drive type (FWD, RWD, AWD, 4x4), auto or manual transmission, car weight, and all options. Your request will not be answered if you do not include all of that information. You must use http://www.automobile-catalog.com for all of your information submitted. Include the link to the automobile catalog so we can quickly reference the data. If your car is not listed on that website, please link any website that has the info. If you do not include your research info above, your request will be denied.
Thank you.

2020-03-20 - Bumper Structure Replacement

Q.
2020 requires "bash-bars" to be added if the car no longer has the OE bumper structure. When these are fabricated:

- Is there a minimum size/wall thickness required?
- Are bash-bars counted for points?
- If yes, then how are points calculated?

A.
2020 rules require the factory bumper reinforcement bar or a roll bar minimum .095 thickness or comparable beam be used across and connecting frame horns on both the front and rear of the car. Rear must be substantially reinforced to offer adequate protection to the fuel cell or OE tank.
No point add as these are now required.
