Motorsport Checklist

The following is a checklist for all entrants to HSV Owners Club of WA events to ensure they comply with all requirements on the day.

 

ENTRY FORM SUBMITTED AND ENTRY FEE PAID PRIOR TO EVENT.

 

CAMS/MOTORSPORT AUSTRALIA OR AASA BASIC LICENCE IS CURRENT & VALID

(Licenses can no longer be issued by the club on the day - See here for letter from AASA)

As we share Motorsport events with the Porsche Club, and they run under Motorsport Australia (CAMS), you will need a SPEED licence for their events, fortunately these licences are also acceptable for an AASA permitted event.  So therefore if you want to attend events run under AASA and  Motorsport Australia (CAMS) you should get a Motorsport Australia (CAMS) SPEED Licence.

 

APPROVED MOTORSPORT HELMET IN GOOD CONDITION (which complies with AS 1698)

(Must have no marks/nicks etc in gel coat) (no MotoX helmets allowed)

 

LONG SLEEVE SHIRT, LONG PANTS AND COVERED FOOTWEAR

 

1kg FIRE EXTINGUISHER MOUNTED WITHIN REACH OF DRIVER

(Must be mounted on metal bracket)

(Must be less than 3 years old )

We can provide/install Brackets and Extinguishers for VX, VE & VF Commodore / HSVs - See here for options 

TOW POINTS / TOW Stickers
 

Under AASA Tow Points / Stickers are not required, however events run under  Motorsport Australia (CAMS) SPEED you will need at least a Tow Sticker to indicate a "point" at which a tow strap can be used to recovery a vehicle from a Sand Trap.   Ideally a TOW STRAP/POINT should be made available, however unlike most European cars, the Australia cars tend not to have such a screw in Tow Point in their bumpers.  Speak to Club Officials regarding options for your vehicles if you would like to have a  TOW STRAP/POINT on your vehicle.
