Please read ALL OF THIS MESSAGE as the recommended border crossing point has BEEN CHANGED to SAN YSIDRO as of April 18, 2017!!! Additional crossing related information provided in this post will be crucial to a successful border crossing.

PLEASE NOTE: AT THIS TIME ALL RACE TEAMS AND SUPPORT VEHICLES ARE RECOMMENDED TO USE THE *** SAN YSIDRO *** CROSSING. PLEASE USE THE LAST LANE ON THE RIGHT (BUS LANE CROSSING). DO NOT CROSS AT OTAY!!!!

First and foremost... tell all your friends and relatives about these changes! These changes are effective immediately. Do your racer / chaser friends and family a favor and pick up the phone and let them know about these changes! This is a very positive change and was brought about through the hard work of NORRA representative Mr. Eliseo Garcia and Mexico Customs official Mr. Jesus Mandujano. If you have questions or need assistance at the SAN YSIDRO border crossing the official NORRA contact at Mexico Customs is Mr. Mandujano. Mexico Customs has been extremely generous by allowing teams to use the BUS lane at San Ysidro. Please be respectful to all agents and be sure to thank them for their help.

DISPLAY YOUR NORRA AFFILIATION
ALL RACE TEAMS AND SUPPORT VEHICLES SHOULD DISPLAY A NORRA STICKER ON THE WINDSHIELD. THE BORDER AGENTS WILL BE LOOKING FOR SIGNS THAT YOU ARE AFFILIATED WITH THE RACE TO ENSURE YOUR CROSSING IS AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.

VEHICLE PAPERWORK
CHASE VEHICLES MUST HAVE PAPERWORK IN ORDER AND READY FOR INSPECTION BEFORE YOU ARRIVE AT THE BORDER!
REQUIRED DOCUMENTS: VEHICLE REGISTRATION
LICENSE PLATES: ALL NON-RACE VEHICLES MUST HAVE LICENSE PLATES!

RACE CAR PAPERWORK MUST BE IN ORDER BEFORE YOU ARRIVE AT THE BORDER.
REQUIRED DOCUMENTS: PROOF OF OWNERSHIP / GREEN STICKER AND SUPPORTING PAPERWORK / INVOICE / DMV PAPERWORK

IF OWNER OF RACE CAR OR SUPPORT VEHICLE IS NOT PRESENT DURING THE BORDER CROSSING THE DRIVER MUST SHOW A PHOTO COPY OF OWNERS ID ALONG WITH SUPPORTING OWNERSHIP PAPERWORK!


This next one is VERY IMPORTANT. NORRA was able to get special treatment based on the expectation that all Race / Chase teams will follow MEXICO LAW when crossing the border.

ALL SPARE PARTS MUST ONLY BE FOR USE ON RACE VEHICLE!
IF YOUR RACE CAR HAS AN 8 CYLINDER ENGINE AND YOUR CHASE TRUCK IS CARRYING A SPARE 4 CYLINDER ENGINE YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED THROUGH THE BORDER. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY TAX ON THE IMPORT OF ANY NON-RACE VEHICLE PART(S).

IS YOUR TEAM PLANNING TO CROSS AT DIFFERENT TIMES? !!! READ THIS !!!!
ALL VEHICLES WITH RACE CAR SPARE PARTS MUST GO ACROSS THE BORDER SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH THE RACE CAR ITSELF. IF YOUR CHASE VEHICLE CROSSES WITHOUT THE RACE CAR THAT VEHICLE WILL HAVE TO PAY TAX ON ALL SPARE PARTS!

SPARE TIRES:
A MAXIMUM OF 4 SPARE TIRES PER RACE OR CHASE TRUCK ARE ALLOWED DUTY FREE. ALL SPARE TIRES MUST MATCH RACE VEHICLE AND MUST BE MOUNTED ON WHEELS. ADDITIONAL SPARE TIRES MUST PAY TAX OF 16% OF TIRE / WHEEL VALUE.


NO GAS OR FUEL OF ANY KIND ALLOWED THRU THE BORDER CROSSING!
