MotorSport NZ Racewear Rule Changes - What You Need To Know

August 21, 2017

You've probably heard by now that the MotorSport New Zealand rules regarding racewear are about to change, and if you haven't - be sure to read on!

The MotorSport NZ Schedule A Safety Rules will change effective April 1 2018, affecting all competitors with an MNZ licence across various championships and events.

Some of you will find that the racewear you are currently wearing will no longer be eligible for competition use from this date, particularly for single layer suits and nomex underwear.

We strongly urge you to take a look at pages 12-14 of this PDF from the MotorSport New Zealand website, to check the updated safety requirements for your series/event:
