Coffee Brake: One example why track day tech inspection is important

Some aspects of tech inspection may come off as excessive but every rule is in place for some reason or other. Last post discussed the 15 most common reasons for tech inspection failures. Apparently the fire in the video below began when can of WD-40 flew across the trunk, bridged the battery terminals and started a fire.

Some tracks/clubs do not require tech inspection or they allow all drivers to “self tech”. I’d be wary of any club that runs this way. There is SO MUCH wrong with this video (obvious tech failures, cars still moving on track after a fire, slow seeming response, etc) hopefully the track who ran this day has learned and made major changes.
