Just a quick question, Does anyone know how many passengers you can take in a car that is competing in a burnout competition.

also what is the age limit on the passengers you take?


cheers,
Daniel

With our burnout comp in Port Augusta , passengers have to sign an indemnity form but as long as they are wearing appropriate clothing and a helmet , are strapped in with a seatbelt and the car is equipped to take passengers I cant see a problem.
If the car is capable of carrying 6 people that would be your limit but I dont know why you would want to take that many passengers , age limit , yeah good question! I would have to say that the laws requiring the age and size of children being able to sit in a seat without a booster and that the seatbelts fit properly would apply. Personally I would say 10 years or older would be appropriate.
Hope this helps
Cheers Mark

lets say "hypothetically speaking" i had a bench seat in the front could i have an adult as the far passanger and have my son in the middle (he is 6yrs old unsure.gif) with the lap seat belt, aslong as he had all the appropriate safety equipment and a signed permission slip laugh.gif

take away the age factor and i reckon ud be right.
but honestly i wud say 6 is too young, although im sure most 6yr olds wud love it more than their father doing the skid lol.
in my opinion someone that age shouldnt be that close to risk of danger, if the unavoidable does happen, say a fire whats a few burns on an adult? ya'd have a few brews and laugh it off, but imagine ur lad in a car on flames, wouldnt be the best experience for him or the parents.

Just my thoughts smile.gif

In the Adelaide/Murray Bridge burnout comps kids arent allowed as passenger as they dont allow children in the pit areas

"Hypothetically replying" the law would require your child to be in a booster seat and that a lap seat belt would not be adequate restraint so basically "NO" worth a try tho lol
Yeah as posted b4 bit young , I mean nothing may go wrong but you if it does, hmmm , wouldn't want that on your conscience eh!

Cheers Mark

Yeah Mark. Think kids have to be in a full child seat with a 5 point harness until they are 7 years of age. Thats on the road. And with smoking laws in cars with children. Not sure why u would want a kid in a burnout car, when 'hypothetically' all sorts could go wrong.
I think they are better off cheering at the fence.

Cheers, Brad

I was just wondering if there were RULES about the age limit, not personal opinions rolleyes.gif. The booster seat and child harness is easily overcome with a bench seat in the front as it would be easily secured using original anchor point.

eitherway my son isnt goin into it, i was just enquiring... that is all..

now can you please call child services and tell them it was all a big mis-understanding laugh.gif

Sorry Daniel, This whole site is about personal opinions. You have to take most of it with a pinch of salt.
Ask a silly question, and you will get silly answers. Hypothetically speaking. ROFLMAO

Who were you directing your original post too? Looked like a place for everyone to comment. Maybe best you contact a member of Port Pirie or Port Augusta directly and see what their rules are. I havent heard of a special edition Rule Book that contains Rules for Burnout Comps, But there is a section in the ADCCSA Rule Book. Best you check that.
Because you dont normally get straight forward answers very easy on this site. LOL'ing again.

Cheers, Brad
