Vehicle Lighting specifications and regulations - for all night rounds.
Any aftermarket square/rectangular lights are limited to a maximum 170mm in length.
Any round aftermarket lights must be a maximum 150mm in diameter. A maximum of 4 items are allowed per car.
Any aftermarket lighting must have a similar light output to factory high beams (within reason and up to our discretion)
Any aftermarket lighting must fit within the factory headlight aperture.
All aftermarket lighting must have a vertical(up and down) adjust-ability, and be able to be adjusted upon request of VicDrift officials. We expect your lights to be adjusted appropriately and to not blind or dazzle other drivers.
You must have both working headlights and tail lights at the start of the day to be able to drive in low light conditions. If one of the head of tail lights were to be damaged after the day has started and not able to be fixed or replaced, the driver is okay to continue driving during the "night" session/times.
If during a battle, both headlights become inoperable, the Clerk of Course may allow the battle to continue. We will not allow a car with no lights to drive during a practice or expression session. This goes with any other sessions with more than 1 other car.
The Clerk of Course has final say in relation to all rulings. He or she may determine if a car is okay to continue driving or not.
There are to be no RED coloured lights facing forwards. The only exception to that is a front brake light along the top of the windscreen. Red lights are reserved for brake lights only.
