All entrants must hold a current, unrestricted, unsuspended driver’s licence. We check these too, so be honest.
Learner drivers are not permitted to be entrants. Drivers with provisional licenses are permitted to enter however, restrictions applied to the license conditions in the state of issue still apply at Rockynats.
Entrants under the age of 18 years must have a parent or guardian’s consent to participate.
Rockynats entrants are renowned for having the toughest highly modified cars in the country. They look, sound and go like nothing the factory would build today and their owners take ultimate pride in them. Rockynats is a modified car event and that’s what spectators from around the world come to see.
