Does a car have to be saftied for it to be allowed to race? For example if i have i project car that runs and meets the autoX specs and i bring it on a trailer can i still race it?@Jerez Black
- As im aware, it does not have to be safetied/registered. We have had trailered race cars compete.
Please keep in mind that if the car won't pass a safety (for legitimate concerns such as suspension, brakes, rust, loose battery, bad wiring, etc) it is unlikely to pass a tech inspection. Use the tech sheet to check your car before registering, its a simple list and basic safety. Good idea for any car we get in for any reason to drive.
The Safety Marshall does random inspections, and they have had to send even registered cars home before, as they simply were not safe.
***Note to all just as a reminder - Please use the Tech sheet and check everything off thoroughly on the list before "EVERY" event *****
Bringing up this topic I feel I should just mention...
Stuff wears out, things fail, and you are responsible not only for your safety, but for the safety of others too. Signing off the car on the tech sheet without checking it is bad. Please don't assume cause you drive it daily doesn't mean something hasn't worn out or come loose.
With any failure, the consequences can be very dangerous for everyone.
Sidenote: Im needing to race. The further I get into this build, the more anxious I get.
