In 2014 the governing body for Off-Road Racing in NZ (O.R.A.N.Z) instituted a program of annual inspections to ensure all cars and drivers racing at ORANZ sanctioned events comply with safety requirements as per the ORANZ rules for that class.(See website)
Following a full, on-hoist inspection by scrutineers appointed by each club, a small metal tag is attached to the frame of the vehicle. This tag signals compliance through till the end of the following March.
Cars will still be checked for basic safety issues at each race meeting.
People thinking of getting in to the sport are advised to consult with a club in their area re any car’s tagged status and suitability.
