Log Books & Safety Cages

Even In Risky Sports, Safety Is A Concern

A log book is a method employed by Motorsport Australia to record proof of registration for competing vehicles. It usually contains the details of the car such as the description and specifications. A safety cage is a structure built to protect vehicles from crashing during competitions.

Every racer has a logbook for their competing vehicles, but its function is more than just a registration book. Schedule L of the Motorsport Australia Manual stipulates that logbooks must be present at all race meetings, rallies, state level and higher speed events, and off-road events.

Some Facts About The Log Book

Logbooks contain all the information about a competing vehicle.

Logbooks are only given after a scrutineer has inspected a car and approved it.

Logbooks can be gotten after inspection, even before getting a Motorsport Australia licence.
