Safety information for 2019!

Basic Safety and Tech Information

SPECIAL NOTE - head and neck restraint device is now required for all cars with

5 or 6 point harnesses installed

Please review the following as there have been changes made since last year!

  • HELMET – 2010 or 2015 SNELL rating REQUIRED with SNELL sticker attached.   SNELL SA standard strongly recommended but SNELL M helmets are acceptable.   DOT-rated helmets are not acceptable.
    • If you have a SNELL 2005 or earlier helmet you will not be allowed to participate!
  • SEATBELTS – As a minimum the vehicle shall have OEM restraints.  If you have chosen to install 5 or 6-point harnesses, be mindful that proper installation will require several changes to create a safe occupant system.   Harnesses must include an anti-submarine strap and be mounted in an approved manner consistent with the harness manufacturer instructions.  A seat designed for use with harnesses will have pass-throughs for the correct routing of the harness; both through the back and seat.   Equal restraint systems are required for both driver and passenger.   Harnesses will be checked for expiration date compliance.   Any expired harness will be granted a “one-time pass” to participate in that event but vehicle will not be allowed to be used at subsequent ARPCA events without replacement.
    • If you have a 5-pt or 6-pt harness, a "head and neck" restraint is now required!
    • If you have anything other than OEM, 5-pt or 6-pt harness installed, please contact safety@arpca.com
  • SEATING REQUIREMENTS – All participant vehicles must have TWO seats with equal restraints for driver and passenger.  This applies to all run groups (including instructors).  
  • CONVERTIBLES – All “non-fixed-metal” roofed cars must have OEM rollover protection (e.g. 996 and later Cabriolets, Boxsters) or a proper roll bar that passes the “broomstick test”.   Convertibles will run with the top up or occupants will wear arm restraints.
  • AGE – Drivers must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid driver’s license.
  • SHARING A CAR – Two drivers sharing a car must be registered in two different run groups.
  • CAR SAFETY – The driver is responsible for proper preparation and operation of their vehicle.   All registered drivers must print and bring ARPCA’s Vehicle Safety Inspection form (ARPCA Vehicle Safety Insp Form), which must be completed and signed by a third-party automotive repair/inspection facility no more than 30 days before the event.  All non-instructor-driven vehicles will be required to pass tech inspection at the track.   No refunds will be given for failure to pass tech inspection.   You may remedy failed items and resubmit your vehicle for approval.
  • INSTRUCTOR OPINIONS WITH REGARD TO SAFETY TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER STUDENT OPINIONS – The instructor assigned to the student will have final say regarding the operation of the car while on the track.  This encompasses the student's driving and operation of the car and its’ OEM and/or other equipment. Be advised that the Chief Driving  Instructor is likely to  side with your instructor rather than you in matters involving a difference of opinion regarding the operation of the car on track.
  • CARS NOT PERMITTED – All open-wheeled cars are prohibited.   Cars with fenders attached to the suspension and not attached to the body of the car in at least two locations are prohibited. 

Contact the ARPCA Safety/Tech chairman at Safety@ARPCA.com. with any questions about the suitability of a vehicle.
