Ok, the following are the individual check boxes on previous years tech sheets for HPT. I have not been told that this year will be any different, so assume we are teching by these rules for the Slides of March.

  • Battery tied down and secure
  • Fluid reservoirs secured and capped
  • Tire depth acceptable (min 3/32)
  • Tire in satisfactory condition (no visible patches, blisters, etc.)
  • Interior items secured or removed
  • Brake lights working
  • Roll bar (convertible)
  • Helmet (Snell M2000 or SA2000 or newer)
  • Seatbelts in satisfactory condition
  • Long pants on driver
  • License plate and current registration sticker
  • Proof of insurance
  • Exhaust system secure
  • Wheels in satisfactory condition and all lug nuts present

Notes on the above:
  • Battery tie down does not need to be OEM, but battery should not move without loosening the tie down first
  • Tires don't really need a minimum tread since our goal is to melt them. However, they should be in good enough condition to make at least 1 lap of the track. If you stage with tires that the starter feels are not safe for the lap, you will be expected to perform a burnout in front of the spectators until the tire in question blows. You should then return to the pits and change your tires. :P
  • I will NOT check license or insurance. Many of the cars are towed to the track and your personal insurance will likely not cover an incident on our course anyway. :!:
  • Please make sure to use appropriate lugs for the type of wheel on your car and ensure that they are torqued down. We will be performing random checks throughout the day to make sure lugs are tight.

Additional things I will check at your inspection:
  • Lower arms and sway bars - I'll be looking for damaged or loose parts
  • Bearings - I give each will the usual wiggle and check for excess play
  • Attitude - We're all here to learn and have fun. Leave any negativity at the gate. 8) If you have a problem with the event or someone attending, find me and I will address your concerns personally.

Just to clarify because I have heard both. Does your helmet need a snell or higher rating? Or is DOT approval adequate?

at this point in time it is m-2000 or better. sa-2000 is considered better protection in inclosed situations.
