**NJMP requires open cars to have deployed roll-over protection**
Open cars must be equipped with a roll bar meeting the following specifications: (i) the roll bar must be of sufficient height to ensure that the top of the driver’s helmet sits below the line from the top of the roll bar to the top of the windshield (commonly referred to as the “broomstick test”) and; (ii) the roll bar must be fixed and visible at all times when the vehicle is on the track.
Snell 2015 or newer helmets are required.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to use an OPEN-FACE helmet at NJMP, you may only use it in a factory stock vehicle equipped with air bags. If your vehicle is NOT factory stock or does not have air bags, you MUST use a closed full face helmet. Please be aware of this. This is a law mandated by the NJ State Police in which the track must abide by.
If your car has aftermarket 5 or 6 Point Harnesses, the webbing must not have an expired date on the manufacturer tag. Most webbing expires after 5 years from date of production.
If you are running a 5 or 6 point harness, you are now REQUIRED to use a head and neck restraint device that meets the standards of either SFI 38.1 or FIA 8858.
Metro NY PCA sponsors this event as a driver’s education. It is not a race or a race school.
