Please do a technical mechanical inspection on your vehicle BEFORE the event! We will be doing a tech inspection, but we expect you to be prepared. If your car fails to meet any of the following requirements you WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO DRIVE until those changes are made. Make sure you can check all of the following boxes!!!
☐ Helmet – MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT! Snell 95 or newer is recommended though DOT approved helmets will be permitted for non-tandem drifting.
☐ Pants & Closed Toe Shoes – MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THEM! No shorts or open-toe shoes are allowed while driving or riding in-car. Fire retardant clothing/suits are recommended though not required. You never can be too safe!!
☐ Loose Items – Ensure there are no loose items in the interior/trunk of your vehicle.
☐ Floor Mats – Remove floor mats before tech inspection. These are considered “loose items.”
☐ Lug Nuts – All lug nuts or lug bolts must be present.
☐ Seat Belts – Factory 3pt. or harnesses must be present and firmly mounted.
☐ Throttle Return – The throttle cable must be well mounted and able to extend/retract freely without any interruption.
☐ Steering Wheel – must be mounted properly and with all bolts present. No play in the steering column, quick release, or any mounting hardware can be present upon a firm grasp and left/right movement while car is off.
☐ Gas Cap – must be present.
☐ Radiator Overflow – An overflow reservoir IS required. If you do not have one, make sure you rig up a bottle of some sort to catch this fluid. You cannot allow the fluid to expand and drip onto the track.
☐ Brake Lights – must have at least two functioning brake lights on the rear of the vehicle.
☐ Battery Tie Down & Terminals – The battery must have a solid tie-down to hold it in place from vertical/horizontal movement. WRAP YOUR BATTERY TERMINALS IN ELECTRICAL TAPE TO PREVENT ELECTRICAL ARK IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT.
☐ Battery Box – If your battery is INSIDE THE CABIN you must either have a dry-battery or have the wet-battery inside of a box. [This is to protect the driver from being covered in battery acid in a worst case scenario.]
☐ Convertible Cars – MUST HAVE ROLL BAR TO PROTECT DRIVER IN EVENT OF A ROLL-OVER.
☐ Seat – Driver’s seat must have all four mounts in use and have no movement.
☐ Electrical Wiring – No bare/exposed wiring. Wrap it up folks. This is how you prevent electrical fires.
☐ Wheel Bearings – Ensure you have no weak wheel bearings. [While the car is in the air, grab the mounted wheel/tires setup on each corner at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock position and try to wiggle it in/out with your hands. If your wheel has play in it, you need to replace those wheel bearings. A compromised wheel bearing could result in a wheel failing or removing mid-drift. Wheels at high wheel speeds can be extremely dangerous to the surrounding spectators.]
☐ Hubcaps/Beauty Rings – Absolutely no loose-mounted, press-on, snapped-in style wheel finishes. These items, if dislodged, can hurt the spectators who enjoy watching you drift. Let’s keep them safe!
BY COMPLETING THIS REGISTRATION YOU ARE AGREEING AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE ABOVE. ANY VIOLATION OF RULES, OR UNREPAIRABLE MAINTENANCE, AS REQUIRED BY OUR TECHNICAL INSPECTION, WILL FORFEIT YOUR ENTRY FEE WITH NO REFUND. You can fix it at the track and still drive, but we are telling you all of this in advance so you can get it prepared and spend your track-day-time ON TRACK.
