New rules permitting removable roll cages have been brought in by ANDRA, providing a new way to ensure safety while on the track but also preserving the street legal nature of many vehicles.
The specs for removable roll cages were researched extensively and tested by a team of engineers commissioned by ANDRA to determine the 8.00 second cut off.
Roll cages will be required to be registered with ANDRA.
ANDRA competition manager Brett Stevens said it was a step forward for racers who don’t want to compromise the streetability of their vehicles with a permanent roll cage.
“ANDRA wants to ensure every racer can be confident of safety when they go down a track and modern removable rollcage designs have made this possible,” he said.
“Our numbers of off-street racers are always growing and we hope this provides a base for even more.”
The specifications for removable roll cage design are available on the Policies and Guides section of the ANDRA website, under the technical menu. Registration forms are available under Forms, in the competitor section of the website.
