Yes, Ambo cover is cheaper than a ride to town. If you dont have ambo cover, You cannot race, as I believe it is in the rule book. Besides, you are silly for not having it, as one day you might need it.

Better to be safe than sorry. I think a trip to the nearest hospital from the Arno track is over $400, thats to Cleve, approx 20 kms. Ambo cover is heaps cheaper. although I hope I never have to use it.

At the tracks they have an ambulance on standby as for fire fighting facilities we have fire extinguishers with each flag marshall and on the start line

We have had a sponsor supply 18 extinguishers (both foam and powder) and I am talking to him at the moment about rigging up a 1000L fire fighting unit with foam retardant.

Plus you must have a fire extinguisher in your car before you can race smile.gif

Most clubs have an ambulance of some description. If its not SA Ambulance, it could be St Johns. Some clubs have CFS on standby, others just have a number of fire extinguishers at readily available points. There is a big issue of safety at dirt circuit meetings.
