UTAH DRIFT EVENTS
Drifting Since 2018
2019 TECH REQUIRMENTS
The first thing to do after receiving entry to an event is to secure a pit area. Promptly prepare the vehicle to be track ready before arriving at the inspection area. Please form a line so that we know which car to tech next. The sooner we get you teched, the sooner you hit the track.
Helmets are required for drivers and passengers. (Snell SA2010 or newer. Snell M must be okayed by Salt City Drift. No dirtbike helmets)
It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that both the driver and passengers keep limbs and body parts inside the vehicle while on a hot track (selfie sticks are OK).
If you are involved in an incident or broken down, remain in your vehicle and assume the track is still hot until the safety crew reaches you. The ONLY time you should exit the vehicle on the track is if your vehicle is on fire. Then do so with extreme caution and assume the track is hot until the safety crew reaches you.
Please use common sense. Speeding in the pits, coming off of the track at excessive speed or any other unsafe driving off track will not be tolerated.
Please be respectful to the facility’s property. Please clean up after yourself in your pit stall. Be mindful of fluids and how they are disposed of. We want to leave a good impression of the Drift Community at the given venue.

1.2 Exterior, Vehicles are not allowed to run without doors. Cars under repair/projects must have structural rigidity around the entire car (ex: large sections missing leaving the car vulnerable in a crash). It is encouraged to run all body panels. Body panels (within reason) may be secured with zip-ties, duct tape, etc.
1.3 Seats, Your seat(s) must be stable and properly secured in the car. All bolts must be present and tight.
1.4 Seat-belts and Harnesses, You must have functioning 3 point belts for all seats that hold drivers/passengers, or no less than a 3pt harness.
