An important reminder for all Speedcar competitors and car owners: Prior to participating in any event (including practice, time trials, qualifying, hot lapping, warm up, race or other programmed session) all Speedcars must be registered via their state Speedcar Association. Annual season registration includes not only the completion and submission of forms with the applicable fees; but also mandatory scrutineering by your club's authorised Scrutineer.
Per Speedway Australia Rule & Regulations, point 3.2.2 ‘Prior to the commencement of each racing season and at any other time that the relevant Affiliated Association or other controlling body may direct, the Race Car Owner of every Race Car shall submit his Race Car and safety equipment for inspection at a time to be decided by the relevant Affiliated Association or other controlling body’.
Likewise, per rule 2.2.14, ‘A Driver participating in any Event must have the following items at the Race Track to be allowed to participate:
(a) a current Speedway Australia Licence and an Infringement Card (if required by relevant division);
(b) a current registered Race Car;
(c) a current Log Book for that Race Car;
(d) safety apparel complying with the relevant Racing Division specifications;
(e) a current Australian Speedway Racing Rule book; and
(f) a current class specification book.’
Failure to meet requirements including misrepresenting a race car or safety apparel, can result in Speedway Australia fines up to $2,000 and/or licence suspensions up to a maximum of 24 months, as per rule 7.93. Please ensure all requirements are satisfied prior to any practice or racing conditions.
