Powercruise is generally for registered cars only however in the interest of all things tough, we do accept some unregistered cars depending on the situation. If your car is supercharged or has a roll cage or any other out of this world modifications that wouldn’t allow it to be run on the roads, then yes this qualifies.
If you have an awesome looking street machine that can be registered but isn’t due to affordability or time constraints, then yes this also qualifies. If you have a backyard thrasher with a v8 in it with exhausts exiting through the bonnet and no interior, then this example does not qualify for unregistered entry into Powercruise. So you can see we look at all situations on their own merit so if you think your car qualifies for unregistered entry into Powercruise, please e-mail us your details, the reasoning behind why the car is unregistered and make sure you send at least 2 good quality current pictures, one of the whole outside of the car and an interior picture please. This will help in making the decision quicker and easier. The e-mail address to send the info to is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure you send this info before you send your entry form. All enquiries will receive a response and if your application has been accepted, we will send you a confirmation email that you will need to attach to your entry form when you send it. If you’re not sure either way, you can of course call us here at the office on 0407172413 and we’ll be happy to assist you.
Safety Inspection For ALL Entrant Vehicles
Cars entered into Powercruise must be in a good presentable standard, Powercruise is a car show after all, this means cars need to be complete inside and out (includes bonnets, front & rear bumper bars and presentable interior), and be fully painted (no undercoat). Any cars that don't meet these standards may either be declined or declined from cruising and limited to the competitive events only. Acceptance is at the promoters discretion, if you are unsure if your car meets the standards please scroll down and submit your car images via the link after the Safety Inspection Information.
All Entrant vehicles must go through a Safety Inspection before being given access to the racetrack. The Safety Inspection will take place in the lanes in front of the Accreditation Office. Once the car has been passed, you will receive a GREEN SAFETY INSPECTION PASSED sticker which will be added to your official Entrant sticker. This means your car now has access to participate in the Powercruise track activities.
The Safety Inspectors will check the following on ALL Entrant vehicles.
- Registration sticker must match the vehicles number plates
- If YOU are not the owner of an entered vehicle, you MUST bring the rego certificate with you & the Entry Form must have the Owner as the Entrant & YOU as the Driver.

A legal amount of tread on the tyres.
No Fuel or Oil Leaks.
All Wheel Nuts Secured Firmly

- Noise emission must not exceed 95dBa. (Exceptions do apply to some cars, please call for info)
- No holes in firewall
- No body damage or structural rust.
All entrant vehicles must be registered unless approved by Powercruise Promotions.

- If your car has a roll cage and only the 2 seats on the side of the car are fitted with Lap Sash seatbelts, then you’re OK to cruise with passengers in those seats only .
- If your car has a roll cage and only the middle seat is fitted with Lap Sash seatbelts, then you’re OK to cruise with a passenger in that seat only.

Extra Safety Inspection For Competition Event Vehicles

The Safety Inspectors will also be checking the following on ALL Competition Event Vehicles
Roll Cage Rules
NEW RULES relating to roll cages in cars for cruising at Powercruise. If your car does NOT have a roll cage, then this does not apply to your car. Any car fitted with a roll cage no matter if it’s CAMS, ANDRA or any other approved method must have roll cage padding on all metal surfaces that are above the dash line of the car; in other words, wherever a person’s head might impact in the event of an accident will require roll cage padding fitted. Soft padding MUST be used and must be about 10mm thick and secured to the metal bars. Drag racing approved SFI padding is NOT permitted as it is designed for a helmet to hit it. Please also take note of the drawing below. If your vehicle is fitted with a cage that extends through the rear passenger area (as shown by the red lines) you are not allowed any passengers in the rear of your vehicle whether they have the required seat belts or not. If your cage follows the roof line of your vehicle please see the rules regarding seat belt requirements below. NEW RULES on seatbelts in cars fitted with roll cages now apply.
The main point here is if you have a cage, then you’re going to have a taxi bar and/or cross over the top bar fitted. We cannot have anyone in the back seat of a vehicle with a roll cage that does not comply with the above seat belt regulations as, in the event of an accident, the rear seat passenger might hit their head on the taxi bar if they only have a LAP BELT on, so anyone in the back of a car fitted with a roll cage must always have a full Lap Sash seat belt fitted or they will not be permitted to go out in the cruise session.
Drag Racing approved SFI padding is not permitted as it is designed for a helmet to hit it. MUST BE SOFT STYLE PADDING

Camping is available at most Powercruise events around Australia. We supply hot showers that are cleaned as often as required which is pretty often considering the large numbers of campers at our events. There are also ample ladies and mens toilets spread around the venue. This includes both demountable building type toilets as well as portable individual toilets for more urgent matters!!. Camping is available for both entrants and spectators and can be paid at the gate on your arrival or prepaid on entry forms if required. The Camping fee is additional to any advertised entrants fees.
Spectators wishing to camp will need to purchase a 4 Day Season + Camping Pass, this is the only pass that permits a spectator to camp whether you are staying for only one night or all of the nights. You can purchase Season + Camping Passes from our website or at the gate on the day.
Powercruise does not book camp sites, we don’t hold sites for anyone. Camping is a first in best dressed deal. Check the venue maps for the allocated camping areas please. Some areas are not permitted to have cars in them and some are so please make sure you read the map at the bottom of this page for all the info. No Camping Sunday Night.
