I vaguely remember that the SCCA GCR used to have details about placement of the various Mazda stickers on the quarter panels and nose.  I was looking at the March edition of the GCR under section "9.3.28. IDENTIFICATION MARKINGS" but don't see anything specific mentioned there nor in the Spec Miata specific section 9.1.7.

 

Also, are there any specs regarding stickers for weight?

 

I'd like to know both SCCA and NASA.

 

Thanks.

Contingency requirements are found at Mazda's website, not the rulebook. The rules for class, weight, plate etc are found in the rulebook

D. Displaying Minimum Weight and Restrictor Size Type
Except for classes in which there is only 1 required minimum weight (e.g., ASR, FE, FS, FST, FV, SM5, SRF),
all cars shall display the correct minimum weight specified in the current GCR in a manner that is clearly
legible to the scrutineers at the scales. Cars that are run in more than one class must display the correct
minimum weight for each class so that it is clear which weight applies to each class. Any car required to run
a restrictor must display the restrictor size and type in a manner that is clearly legible to the scrutineers. If
the car also displays a minimum weight, it is recommended that the restrictor information be located near the
displayed minimum weight.

 

Look at fig 5 GCR 78 (page 80 in pdf) for sticker placement but I don't think you're going to get DQ'd for improper placement,

Ahh.... I see... 

So we aren't required to run the stickers unless we intend to participate in Mazda's contingency program.  Thanks for that.

Here is a link to Mazda's contingency program for anyone who is curious:

The GCR isn't specific about size for weight stickers, hence my question...

which would include your membership for parts. If you join Mazdaspeed you have to provide a picture with the sticker placement and color.

NASA doesn't require the weight or restrictor stickers (though they are appreciated at impound!)
