Technical Bulletins

Three technical inspection days are coming up for Melbourne in order to gear up for a return of ANDRA Drag Racing to Calder Park Raceway.

Technical inspections are required for vehicles that have log books and ensure that competitors have safe, well engineered cars and motorcycles with which to tackle the drag strip.


Racers should note the ACCC recently issued a recall on two types of helmets - the Kylin XR 205 and KBC VR-1X.

Over 1,000 potentially dangerous motorcycle helmets have been recalled after testing by the ACCC found they were unsafe and did not meet the Australian/New Zealand Standard.

“Motorcycle helmets are critical protective devices that are designed to prevent or minimise head injury during an accident,” ACCC Deputy Chair Delia Rickard said.

“Motorcyclists must be able to rely on their helmets meeting the safety requirements.”

The ACCC recently tested six different brands and models of motorcycle helmet against the requirements of the Australian/New Zealand Standard. Two of the six helmets failed to meet minimum safety requirements and have been recalled.

ANDRA has been advised by Racepak (US) that it will be providing on-site technical support for Australian Racepak customers during the 2013 Nitro Champs at Sydney Dragway.

Racepak will also be conducting an information session at Sydney Dragway Boardroom at 7pm on Friday the 3rd of May.

ANDRA would like to thank Racepak for taking this initiative and supporting Australian racers.
