Car 

All cars must be able to be driven lawfully on Victorian roads.  All cars require a form of registration, either full road reg, club registration or some other form of registration which allows the vehicle to be lawfully driven on the road.  The vehicle must be in a roadworthy/track-worthy condition prior to being deemed safe to drive on the circuit. The following items will be scrutineered:

  • All treaded tyres must have a minimum of 2mm tread depth remaining at the beginning of the day – this includes centre as well as sides. If subsequent inspection during the day shows the tyre to be on or below the tread depth indicator access to the track may be denied;
  • Slick tyres can be used on dry a track only. Access may be denied if the track is deemed unsuitable for slick tyres;
  • Front and rear brake pads must be deemed to have suitable material to complete a day at the racetrack;
