Default Rule Change Effective 5/27/10 (2 pt Lap Belts)

Attention Racers:
Effective our May 27-30 event. All cars in competition will be required to run a minimum of a 3 pt seat belt system. Lap belts on any car will no longer be permitted.
As a NHRA member track, VITA has the right to impose stiffer safety rules to protect our participants. The VITA board has learned from experience that a lap belt system can not adequately protect a driver in case of a crash. The new rule will be added to our track rules that are posted online.

Racers running 11.50 and slower will be allowed to use expired SFI units due to their ETís do not require SFI 16.1 3inch belt w/2 year belt certification. The older units although expired will be safer to use over a lap belt system new or old. Tech inspectors will inspects all belts to determine its quality regardless of age or SFI date. Please refer to your NHRA rule book for required mounting instructions.

All of our 11.49 or quicker racers replace their belts every 2 years. With the amount of racing done here annually finding like new belts should not be a problem if one doesnít wish to buy new ones.
