Nissan creates Spec Z series with National Auto Sport Association
Nissan is teaming up with the National Auto Sport Association to create a new road racing series for the 2003-08 Nissan 350Z. The company says the series will focus on tight competition, parity and cost containment.
NASA Spec Z will offer an emergency pricing program, while Nissan Motorsports will provide technical support. The awards program rewards up to $ 850 for the top three finishers at regional events, and Nissan Motorsports will provide $ 6,500 in cash to the top Spec Z finishers at the NASA Championships.
BFGoodrich will be the test tire of the series; the tire maker also created an emergency pricing program. Other prices are in the process of being finalized.
“We are very excited about Spec Z,” said Jeremy Croiset, NASA sponsorship manager. “We have worked closely with Nissan Motorsports on creating Spec Z, and it will be a great series for anyone looking to step into a specification vehicle that is fast and relatively inexpensive to build, maintain and ride.”
There are many rules for the specification series, including what pilots can change and what they cannot. The engines of the series are essentially original, but the octane number of the fuel can exceed 100. Weight reduction is not allowed, but some parts can be removed.

Other NASA spec series include the Porsche 944, Factory Five cars, Mazda Miata, Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang and a few even more capable classes. There are divisions across the United States and races almost every weekend.
