It's prefered. For circuit racing it's mandated, for sprint days the rules are relaxed. If it's not marked it take longer to recover the car.

If you don't have a properly accessible tow hook, especially on the front of your car, then you accept your front bar might be damaged if you do need to be towed off the track. The recovery guys are not going to wait for you to take your front bar off. Stickers cost $2. Put a tow strap connected to your factory chassis tow point in the front and then cut a neat incision through the front bar. Modern cars have the tow point already mounted through the front bar, just pop off the front cover plate and screw in a tow loop for the day.

I concur and thanks for the encouragement to enter on Saturday billywiz (yeah I drove lika fairy)

There is a link on the forums to a fire extinguisher mounting bracket made by evok3d. I bought one and all fitted well in a couple of minutes.

Having done Calder Park yesterday this is a 'note to self' for scrutineering next time:

  • Fire extinguisher needs to have a date (mine didn't?! must have been a Bunnings special)
  • That date needs to be less 3 years old
  • They also check the expiration date on the harness if you have one

Does anyone know what the go is with the age of the helmet? The guy looked at mine and passed it but I don't think there's a date on it and it's positively ancient...

Also I'm pretty sure there's a date somewhere on the Sparco fixed back, does that need to be valid for club level events?

They were looking at the helmet sticker (see page1 of the thread) and whether the helmet was beaten up/cracked/frayed chin strap etc.

As for harness, shakes head at track car rules applied to street cars on a track - so I can use a +25yr old OEM 3pt lap sash and pass but the 6pt harness has expired by a month :-)
