Vehicle Technical Inspection Form

Each competitor is required to fill out a Technical Inspection Form to present to the tech inspector before an event.   Completing and signing of this form by the competitor stipulates that the vehicle meets the regulations for the event.

It is the competitor’s sole responsibility to ensure compliance to the regulations initially and at all times during the event.   Inspections by the organizers, if any, do not imply compliance or any guarantee of vehicle safety.
