There are new rules regarding safety are now mandatory. These rules were introduced prior to 2016, when it was made known that they were recommended for one year and required for 2017. While none of the rule updates are major changes, there is no need for surprises when you show up to tech at your first race of the season. For this reason SDHQ wants to ensure that all racers are familiar with the 2017 safety rules. For more info visit www.bitd.com or call SDHQ 480-633-2929
