1. Competition Vehicles
1.1 Technical Inspection
Prior to any racing activities all cars and driver equipment must
undergo a technical inspection by SPDS`s technical event
officials. During technical inspection there may only be one
representative from the team. The area should be closed off
and private as far as possible. All other personnel must leave
area. In addition every vehicle is subject to further technical
inspection at any time, before, during or after an event,
at the time and in the place and manner directed by the
Race Director. Not complying in full with any inspection request
may result in loss 0-10 if in a battle – and use of 5 minutes rule
to fix the problem, and/or disqualification for further competion and/or
the whole event.
All determinations by Race Director regarding the timing
and Method of technical inspection shall be final and not
subject to appeal or review.
Vehicles must maintain the original OEM unibody and/or frame
structure between the OEM front and rear suspension mounting
points. No trucks or SUVs will be allowed.
1.3 Sponsor Stickers, top front banner and startnumber
Race car must have all mandatory sponsor stickers and top
front banner and SPDS startnumber, and Your name before entering the track
for practice. (In most cases the number you used for Your last
competion is valid – if doubt, ask us. For Norwegian drivers use the same
as in the Norwegian Powerdrift Series) If missing stickers a penalty
fee must be paid – and also disqualification will happen in case
of missing stickers or front banner in the finals! (Use your number
from your National Series and put an S for Sweden DK for Denmark and
N for Norway together with your number.)
