Pretty much any vehicle that will pass a basic safety check (not roadworthy check). Each CAMS event has Scutineering where the vehicle is checked for compliance with CAMS rules.
Some of the items checked are:
- Seats not broken and bolted in OK. (So you can drive without the seat moving, and it shouldn’t move if you have an off)
- Seat belts work and not damaged (So they won’t let you fall out if you do have a little oops!)
- Two return springs on throttle ( so throttle will still return to off if one breaks)
- Positive battery terminal is covered by at least electrical tape (to stop chance of sparking), and battery secured.
- A blue triangle of sides 150mm indicating the location of the battery.
- If registered, you must present an extension letter from your Compulsory Third Party insurer stating the car and the event. Just go in to an office, or try by phone – it isn’t hard.
- Tyres not showing wire/canvas/obvious sidewall damage. Also no rally/off road tyres. Normal road tyres are fine.
- Fire Extinguisher at least 0.9kg, with a metal mount (not plastic like a lot of really cheap ones) Should be 40-50 dollars. Must be in date, ie on the bottom there is normally a year stamped. Must be within 3 years.
- If you have an electric fuel pump it must switch off when the engine stalls ( so it can’t pump fuel out of a broken fuel line in an incident). If you have an unmodified late model car it will have this from factory.
- Visible towing points (capable of accepting a 40mm OD cylindrical test object) fitted forward of the front axle and rearwards of the rear axle and capable of towing the automobile on a sealed surface with its wheels locked. RPM make tow hooks out of a seat belt like material which are easy to bolt to bumper mounts, or similar.
- Normally a windscreen would be fitted, but open wheel cars/buggies can run but must have a full face helmet with visor/goggles. If you have no front windscreen fitted, then the rear should also be out.
- Mudguards, especially front, must be fitted on open, buggy type vehicles.
