All Vehicles must pass a Technical/Safety inspection:
It is the Drivers Responsibility to make sure their vehicle is track ready. Please use the Inspection Tech Sheet as a reference of items that we will be looking for during the inspection. Common tech problems that cause vehicles to fail, are cracked windshields, improperly tied down batteries, belted tires, or any type of fluid leaks. Vehicles that fail the tech inspection won’t 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.
Driver Safety Equipment
All Drivers must wear long pants and closed toe shoes and at least a Snell 2000 rated helmet to participate. Functional seat belts 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.
