Safety Inspection For ALL Entrant Vehicles

Cars entered into Powercruise must be in a good presentable standard, Powercruise is a car show after all! 

This means cars need to be complete inside and out (includes a bonnet, front and rear bumper bars and tidy presentable interior), and be fully painted (no undercoat), and no mis-matched panels. 

*One mismatched panel won't be an issue - we understand life happens but it is a car show after all - so Presentation Matters!

All Entrant vehicles must go through a Safety Inspection before being given access to the track.

The Safety Inspection will take place in the lanes in front of the Accreditation Office. Once the car has been inspected, you will receive a SAFETY INSPECTION PASSED sticker which will be added to your official Entrant sticker. This means your car now has access to participate in the Powercruise track activities.

Acceptance is at the promoters discretion, if you are unsure if your car meets the standards please scroll up and submit your car images via email with plenty of good clear quality photos and information about the car.  It is the entrants/participants responsibility to ensure their car meets or exceeds the advertised requirements for the event.
