The Safety Inspection will take place in the lanes in front of the Accreditation Office.

ROLL CAGE RULES

 

NEW RULES relating to roll cages in cars for cruising at Powercruise. If your car does NOT have a roll cage, then this does not apply to your car.

Any car fitted with a roll cage no matter if it’s CAMS, ANDRA or any other approved method must have roll cage padding on all metal surfaces that are above the dash line of the car; in other words, wherever a person’s head might impact in the event of an accident will require roll cage padding fitted.

 

Soft padding MUST be used and must be about 10mm thick and secured to the metal bars. Drag racing approved SFI padding is NOT permitted as it is designed for a helmet to hit it.

 

Please also take note of the drawing below. If your vehicle is fitted with a cage that extends through the rear passenger area (as shown by the red lines) you are not allowed any passengers in the rear of your vehicle whether they have the required seat belts or not. If your cage follows the roof line of your vehicle please see the rules regarding seat belt requirements below. NEW RULES on seatbelts in cars fitted with roll cages now apply.

The main point here is if you have a cage, then you’re going to have a taxi bar and/or cross over the top bar fitted.

 

We cannot have anyone in the back seat of a vehicle with a roll cage that does not comply with the above seat belt regulations as, in the event of an accident, the rear seat passenger might hit their head on the taxi bar if they only have a LAP BELT on, so anyone in the back of a car fitted with a roll cage must always have a full Lap Sash seat belt fitted or they will not be permitted to go out in the cruise session.

See below Roll Cage Further Information and Diagram

UNREGISTERED VEHICLES

 

​Powercruise is generally for registered cars simply because we would expect the cars to be at a road worthy standard however f your car is purely a track car we do accept unregistered cars depending on the situation.

 

If your car is supercharged or has a roll cage or any other out of this world modifications that wouldn’t allow it to be run on the streets, then yes this qualifies. If you have an awesome looking street machine that can be registered but isn’t due to affordability or time constraints, then yes this also qualifies. If you have a drag car or circuit race car that has a minimum of 2 front seats with applicable seat belts and working brake lights and an exhaust that runs at least to the diff with some sort of mufflers, then yes this is what we often allow so long as the car is presentable and the crowd will like to see it.

If you have a backyard thrasher with a v8 in it with exhausts exiting through the hood or anything with pipes straight out of the headers and no interior, then this example does not qualify for unregistered entry into Powercruise.

So you can see we look at all situations on their own merit so if you think your car qualifies for unregistered entry into Powercruise, please e-mail us your details, the reasoning behind why the car is unregistered and make sure you send at least 4 pictures as show above in the entry section please. This will help in making the decision quicker and easier. The e-mail address to send the pictures of your unregistered car to is info@powercruise.com

Please ensure you send this information before you send your entry form. All enquiries will receive a response and if your application has been accepted, we will send you a confirmation email that you will need to attach to your entry form when you send it. If you’re not sure either way, you can of course call us here at the Powercruise Office on 1-800-701-3188 and we’ll be happy to assist you.

CANCEL ENTRY

 

Cars break, parts don’t turn up, and unforeseen circumstances do happen.  What options do you have:-

  • Change your car details to your daily driver or to a friend's car so you can still get out  on the track for some awesome fun. You can change the entered vehicle but the entered driver must remain the same

  • Got no other car to drive? Then transfer your entry to a spectator pass/es so you can still get in and watch (or give them to friends or family).

  • Not able to come at all? Don’t have any friends you want to give or sell your passes to? That is a real bummer. For standard entrants a refund of the entry fee only less a $40 administration fee can be given (VIP is non-refundable sorry). We must receive the withdrawal of your entry from you (not your mum or your mate) in writing via email 14 days prior to the commencement of the event. 

  • If you are a VIP Entrant, please discuss your options with our staff.  VIP entry is transferable to another person for the same event, transfers MUST be done through the Powercruise office.

No refunds will be given for any reason from 2 weeks prior to the event.  Entries are not transferable, so you cannot change the entered driver or transfer your entry to a friend or to another even next year.

Please read the Powercruise full Terms and Conditions which can be found at the bottom of this page and also on the Powercruise Entry Forms.
