All Vehicles must pass a Technical/Safety inspection:

It is the Drivers Responsibility to make sure their vehicles are track ready.  Please use the Inspection Tech Sheet as a reference of items that we will be inspecting. Common tech problems that cause vehicles to fail, are cracked windshields, improperly tied down batteries, belted tires, or any type of fluid leak.  Vehicles that fail the tech inspection will not be allowed to run until the repairs have been verified by the Chief Steward.  In the event that a vehicle does not continue to meet LVMS/Vegasdrift Safety/Technical standards throughout the day, the Chief Steward will be forced to pit the vehicle.  No refunds/credits will be issued for tech-related issues.

Driver Safety Equipment

All Drivers must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes and at least a Snell 2010 rated helmet to participate.  Functional seatbelts or harnesses are required.  No refunds will be issued if the vehicle/safety equipment does not pass or continue to pass tech throughout the event.

All ride-along participants must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes and have their own Snell 2005 or better-rated helmet.  Drivers and passengers must keep their hands inside the vehicle at all times while on the track.  Drivers are responsible for the conduct of their passengers.  If an unsafe incident occurs due to a passenger distracting the driver or touching the vehicle controls, the driver will be liable for all damages and will have venue credentials revoked and will be asked to leave.
